Three years later, Mark Tedin found himself facing this art description for a Dissension card:
Creature – Elemental
Whenever you play an enchantment spell, put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control.
Location: Ravnica “skyline” at night
Action: Show a strange winged creature of your design, maybe 12' tall, that looks like it's “made of night.” Show it perched on the top of a spire, wings spread. It's darker than the night (or dusk) sky behind it, and its body contains many stars of varying brightness.
Focus: the winged “starry night” elemental
An elemental creature with an ability that grants +1/+1 counters? That sounds familiar! Mark took the opportunity to hearken back to his original Forgotten Ancient art when he submitted the sketch for this new critter. Check out the facial similarities.
The creative team liked the connection, and even named the card to be reminiscent of the player-created Scourge elemental.
