Source: At Press Final Fantasy Illustrator Yoshitaka Amano And Japanese Artists Team Up For Awesome Magic: The Gathering Artwork 2019-04-23 Tue 2019-04-23 Tue To the delight of Magic: The Gathering (and perhaps Final Fantasy) fans, Wizards of the Coast recently announced that they have teamed up with a collection of 28 artists from Japan to create 36 alternate War of the Spark Planeswalkers illustrations. The standout card appears to be Liliana, Dreadhorde General, illustrated by famed Final Fantasy and Vampire Hunter D illustrator Yoshitaka Amano, and it's a beauty that has all of the celebrated artist's trademark dark fairy tale charm. On their website, Wizards of the Coast write: "War of the Spark is all about Planeswalkers. With 36 different characters represented, the set truly showcases an all-out war for the fate of the Multiverse being fought on Ravnica. We wanted to do something special to commemorate this event in Japan, so we worked with Japanese artists to create alternate-art versions of every planeswalker in the set. All 36 planeswalkers in War of the Spark were reimagined beautifully by artists well-known throughout Japan, including Yoshitaka Amano!" The alternate versions appear at a 50% rate in War of the Spark boosters, but are also available at retailers around the world, although they will only be printed in Japanese. You can view the artwork for each card at both Wizards of the Coast and the Japanese Magic: The Gathering site, as well as below. Below the image is a list of the artists featured in the set.
