Last Monday Ethan came to you with the poll asking you to pick your favorite from five art descriptions created by our creative team. The fans voted and the results are here.

Art Descriptions    
Waste Not 8644 32.2%
Season of the Lich 7131 26.6%
Liliana's Wake 6895 25.7%
Necromancer's Call 2317 8.6%
Necromancy Ascendant 1842 6.9%
Total 26829 100.0%

[Waste Not]

Color: Black Spell
Location: A nasty trash heap outside a small settlement
Action: We see a RAG MAN, a hunched and withered humanoid figure who appears to be held together by frayed ropes and worn leather straps. The being is standing triumphantly atop a heap of bones, broken armor and weapons, and other less identifiable trash. It is holding up a skull in one hand; the other hand clutches a filthy sack that is bulging with "treasures." A glow of purplish power surrounds the Rag Man and the skull.
Focus: The glowing figure.
Mood: Creepy yet eco-friendly.

Now, while R&D continues to test and tweak the card, Magic art director Jeremy Jarvis will be commissioning a series of sketches from an artist of his choice. The next poll will either be on a series of tweaks from R&D after playtesting, or for you all to choose which sketch you prefer from the artist Jeremy has chosen.

Either way, we'll be back in the coming weeks!
