|Hey there good lookin', is that a spear in your pocket, or are you going to purge me like the unclean heretic I am?|
|"Grim Nemesis" is actually the name of the shitty 80's metal band he plays in.|
White, the color typically associated with abilities like Vigilance and Terrible Dancing has some great looking cards. Angelic Purge pictured above is terrifying. Odric looks like Sean Connery. Topplegeist is amazing, and probably in my top 5 for all MTG art ever. But I've talked about Toople in like 20 articles already, so I'm just going to go ahead and say he wins, and pick the runner up.
|Apparently +1/+1 and vigilance is granted by scaring the everloving shit out of you.|
The art on this card is crazy nice looking, and does a great job showing just how insane the angels have become on Innistrad. A+ for Chase Stone for doing a good job on it.
Blue is a fishy color. Like literally; it has fish. It also has been known to make many a player rage-quit after they've had their fourth spell in a row countered.

You have to admit that black is lookin' good this set. There are plenty of zombies, and just the right amout of tentacle hands. Triskaidekaphobia has that cool "thirteen of a thing" theme going on, and it's fun to see how many of them you can spot. But one stuck out to me like a sore thumb in a pile of thumbs that aren't as sore as the noticeable one.

Red was a tough pick. The angry burn-y color of MTG has some beautiful lookin' cards. From the nightmare inducing Skin Invasion to Tibalt 2.0 (Sin Prodder), the color has a lot going for it. BUT THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE (unless for some arbitrary reason I decide to do two).
|Most aggressive Salvation Army collector ever.|
|In Iain's vision, Darth Maul was jacked as hell.|
Our multiple colored friends aren't plentiful, but it was still a rough choice. I really wanted to say Gitrog Monster, just because I'm playing a deck with him right now. Also he looks like hypnotoad. But in the end, one badass lady was significantly more badass than the others.
|She is way cooler than I'll ever be.|
You know, there's not really an artifact that sticks out to me. They are all fairly average. I'll just mention one:
|The stuff of nightmares.|
Doing this article has inspired me to do some awesome alters. Not because I'm a great artist or anything - in fact, for the exact opposite reason. I'm just so terrible that I need to erase good art so I don't feel as shitty about myself. Just so you have an idea, here's the best I can do:
