Convocations - Page 10

Oh, I say I'm a blue mage, maybe a blue/green mage, but seeing this combo illustrated by Ron Spencer sure does bring back some memories. One card is a Beta card that should be pretty clear, and the other is our first Fallen Empires card represented in this comic. Can you guess the combo?

Did you guess it?

Breeding Pits , Bad Moons , Black Knights , Order of the Ebon Hands , Hypnotic Specters , Drain Lifes , Dark Rituals , Hymn to Tourachs, and Lord of the Pit . Oh man. Those were the days.

Ron Spencer is a classic name when it comes to Magic art (Goblin Grenade , Hammer of Bogarden , Mind's Desire , Yawgmoth's Will , etc.) I have to admit that his art has been hit and miss with me, and this time it's a miss. The choice of a thrull tower is interesting, but I think I would have preferred to see perhaps some pathetic looking thrulls crawling out of the breeding pit, and then the ones that come in contact with the light of the bad moon seemingly growing into noticeably more intimidating creatures. This piece looks like some strange spell or ritual is occurring rather than showing an army of endless thrulls being created.
