It just occurred to me that we have actually been getting a lot more impressionistic and off-the-wall art in MTG over the last few years, it's just been in the form of alternate art vanity cards. Take a look at Spitfire Lagac for example.


Thwart the Grave too, it reminds me of the old Guay pieces.

Something I've been working on.


If you said Persian, I wouldn't blink an eye, but Iranian... Persia, like Rome or the Incan Empire, was a decently tolerant of minority cultures. But the name Iran is more tied to the current state than the historical past. And the current state is so anti-LGBT that, even though I don't like the stuff they do (and would say it should be considered human rights violations), it feels like cultural prosthetizing. And considering that I already consider progressive culture to have too many leech-like qualities that I want it to take some self-reflections on, but I get too pushy with some of the values I have (namely, it's one thing to have a "missionary culture" of sorts; it's another for a culture to have so low a natural birth-rate that it necessitates it to survive.).

Iranian in the sense of the broader Iranian-speaking world, as some of the cultures in world building also have inspirations in the Scythians.

Naturally the whole thing is more Achaemenid-style than modern theocracy style.

You know, really digging through some of the cards, in kind of surprised nobody has been discussing how much more pushed done of the cards in Kaldheim are. I'm not taking about insanely meta breaking cards, just strictly better versions of the baselines. Poison the cup is strictly better murder. Village Rites is strictly better Altar's Reap, etc.

Village Rites is a reprint from M21 (and before then we had Costly Plunder), and Murder was invalidated back in the first Theros block.

Saw Raya (without paying for it of course, since **** Disney and their pro-genocide ways), and it's basically like Tarkir but done better.

Hey so I looked through the full spoiler on TSR and tried to find the art used on the boxes and it doesnt seem to exist on a card in the set. Perhaps its from a previous csrd, I'm not sure. Can any of yoy identify it?

The speculation I've heard assume it's some form of alternate art Tarmogoyf.

I mean, not rare for them to use art for marketing that doesn't appear on a card.

Yeah, they probably wanted to let people know they were going to reprint Tarmogoyf in this set very badly, but since the original art is such a mess, they commissioned a new one for promotional reasons.

Here's a video by Gavin that'll tell you pretty much the same thing while also giving some more insights into how they use promo art:

Another survey from wotc
Always a good idea to share them when they pop up.
