Lorwyn's boggarts aren't the greatest at blacksmithing, weaponcrafting, or even whittling. So when it comes to arming themselves, they improvise what they can't steal.

There's actually a measure of ingenuity to their improvisation. Whether they're firing hedgehogs from a slingshot, lashing frogs to a stick, or gathering hornets in a fragile glass sphere, they exhibit a range of creative solutions for the goal of making someone hurt.

Most of the designs you see on boggart cards in the set came from one page in the Lorwyn style guide, where Lorwyn concept artist Cyril Van Der Haegen went wild coming up with designs for boggart weapons. (We suspect Cyril might be part boggart himself.)
