Elspeth vs. Tezzeret Decklists & FTV:Relics Art Preview for Sol Ring

The mothership had two fun tid-bits today. In arcana, they announced the decklists of the new Elspeth v. Tezzeret decks. For this artwork fan, the highlight of this announcement was the fantastic new version of tournament staple Swords to Plowshares done by Terese Nielsen:

Among the other 5 new artworks announced was a new Mishras Factory:

Not my favorite, really, but the coolness factor of the card counts for something. Alas, I find both the new planeswalkers’ artwork to be lacking and sub-par:

Elspeth

Tezzeret

Yeah… I’m not a fan of either one… they seem quite amateurish.

Lastly, in Mike Flores’ article, “Great Looks at Great Decks” we see a neat new image with a link to the old announcement of the From the Vault: Relics release (releases tomorrow at the time of this writing!) that is presumably the new artwork for Sol Ring:

Sol Ring FTV Relics

Interesting artistic developments. I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those swords!

  1. Wow, if those cards will come in the duel decks, I’m sure that I’ll be purchasing some of those… maybe 4 of those!

    I must admit that I like this idea of printing old classics with new art and front. While the old cards keep their value, the new players (or those that missed the old sets for any reason) have a way to get a little part of magic.

    By the way, Sol Ring new art is hawt.
