you know or counter spell and cancel the flavor text should have been: "DENIED" and "REJECTED". That would just piss some folks off and it sums up what you just did to them that and I like the announcer from unreal tournament.

Maybe a bit more of SSS in the hand with a bit of orange? The light is so intense and the hands are not opaque... imo. but the point of view is superb.

personal taste thing I'd say. Hands are pretty meaty for the most part, and it's all relative to the light of the environment, I guess it could go either way depending on what you want to emphasize in the image. That hand was already dominating the image by its size, I'd be concerned it might take over

Is him any significant character from the MTG universe? He remind me a bit of Urza, but not really sure...
Stunning artwork as usual, btw!

Thanks! Not a specific character, just a mage based off of the Alara world concepts

My boyfriend ~EternalJedi and I always say that he looks like :iconvonkarmaplz: from Phoenix Wright.

I can't believe I found the artist for this card. It's the best card ever. :nod:
