Convocations - Page 17

Here's certainly a classic combo that I've been expecting to see since Page 1, illustrated by Doug Shuler. One card's from Beta the other is from Fallen Empires. Can you guess the combo?

Did you guess it?

You probably did. Lord of the Pit and Breeding Pit . The card names screamed for these cards to be played out together in the early days.

As for this piece, it's definitely one of my least favorites. Mr. Shuler just completely missed on capturing the pure evil of the Lord of the Pit (who now looks more like Majin-Buu from Dragon Ball Z), and for some reason changed the all-too-human looking Thrulls to 100% spirit, which is a terrible mistake. Maybe he wanted to show that they were being sacrificed, but I feel there should have been dead thrulls scattering the ground to compliment the rising spirits.
