Convocations - Page 2



This next piece is by Tobin Dorn. Can you guess what this two card "combo" is? (I'm not saying it's a good combo.) Hint: One card is from Legends the other is from The Dark. Answer below. No Peeking 'til you make your guess! (If you were playing back then.)

Did you guess it?

One card I recognize but never owned, the other is a big favorite of mine. Time Elemental and Ball Lightning . A seven mana combo that is extremely vulnerable and can't even kill until it's repeated several times isn't all that great, but you gotta remember this is from sets that were released in 1994. Game theory and the tournament scene wasn't nearly as refined as it is today.


I do love how the image is a nice shade of purple, an obvious yet pleasing mix of blue and red. The time elemental is still some bizarre mixtures of a dragonfly, beetle, and wristwatch but it's easier to see in this new picture. It has its time hooks into ball lightning and flying it back to your hand. Very nice.
