Convocations - Page 21



Here's an odd piece illustrated by Alexander Maleev. Some of you may be able to guess this one, but I couldn't. One card comes from Beta the other from Fallen Empires. Can you guess the combo?

Did you guess it?

A 4/4 flier in the color with Bad Moons and Unholy Strengths doesn't really need more than, but combining Sengir Vampire with Farrel's Mantle seems like a fun casual combo that I never played with.


But back to the piece... why is he missing an arm? I'm so confused. How does a 4/4 flying vampire that grows bigger and/or the ability to target a creature and deal damage translate to a missing arm? And why is it naked? Shouldn't the inspiration from the card have come from the the actual mantle, and not interpreting the background of the card to be glowing spirits rising into the sky? Strange interpretation indeed.
