Sure, you're probably familiar with some of the big, splashy, mythic rares of Modern Masters 2015 Edition. After all, who isn't excited about Tarmogoyf or Dark Confidant? But how well do you know the commons of Modern Masters 2015 Edition? Below is a closer look at the art from some noteworthy commons. (In some cases, it's a REALLY close look!)

  1. Ulamog's Crusher
  2. Conclave Phalanx
  3. Brute Force
  4. Fiery Fall

How many did you know? If you didn't do so hot, no worries! You're sure to get to know these commons much better as you draft or played in sealed events with Modern Masters 2015 Edition. And you're sure to know them intimately if you play in Modern Masters Weekend!
