You've only seen four Ravnica: City of Guilds preview cards this week, and already we're clamoring to show you their cool full-size art and the sketches that went into their creation.

On Monday you saw Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, a heroic investigator from the red-white Boros Legion. Here's the art behind it, by Donato Giancola.

Last but not least, today's preview is of Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion, a mighty nonbasic land that blesses your Boros or any other troops with double strike. Here's its art by Martina Pilcerova.

Expect more Ravnica card and art previews over the next two and a half weeks. Of course, you'll love the art of the special Ravnica: City of Guilds prerelease card -- but you'll have to be a bit patient for that.
