Alternate Moxen

Did you know that each year, the winner of the Vintage Championship at Gen Con wins a big, cool, alternate-art version of one of the Power Nine?

From 2003 through 2005, the prizes were new versions of Black Lotus, Timetwister, and Ancestral Recall. Then in 2006, we started with the Moxen, each done by Volkan Baga. And perhaps you would like to see the sketches and artwork that led to them!
