Last week it was revealed that we are reprinting Magma Jet in Theros, and there was much rejoicing. Not only because the card is back (and boy do I love casting Magma Jet) but also because of the gorgeous new art by Maciej Kuciara.
Let's take a look at the art description that brought this beautiful painting to life:
Color: Red spell Location: Your choice Action: This spell represents a damaging blast of molten lava. Start with the reference on pg. 49B. Using the reference as inspiration, design a female cleric from Akros. She's summoning a blast of molten lava out of the ground. It shoots up like a fiery geyser. She's in a dynamic pose as she casts her spell. The location is your choice. Maybe she’s on a rocky hillside with a Greek-inspired temple in the background. Focus: The lava Mood: I wield the power of fire!
