Convocations - Page 16

Here's a piece by Chris Hebel that I like for multiple reasons. At first glance it looked like it was only about a single card, but it's definitely a two card combo. Both cards are coming to us from The Dark. Can you guess the combo?

Did you guess it?

I love merfolk. And you can bet I considered ways I could stick Merfolk Assassin in my merfolk deck back in the days, but combining it with War Barge certainly never crossed my mind. I knew nothing of mana curves back then, but it still seemed like it wasn't worth it.

I definitely recognized the Merfolk Assassin, but I totally missed that the second card was War Barge, considering that Merfolk Assassin already has a ship in the background of the original card. Sneaky, sneaky! I was thinking the card must be Unholy Strength or something similar considering how insidious this particularly awesome version of the assassin is depicted. (Being a comic book fan, this piece also reminded me of Namor from Marvel Comics.)
