My First Time Walk

Having altered full-time for over a year now I've painted my fair share of Power: three Lotuses, two Timetwisters, and seven Moxes. And yet, zero Ancestrals or Time Walks.

Now we just need an Ancestral. 

Each year for the Vintage Championships at GenCon, the winner wins alternate artwork for one of the Power Nine. In 2011, Chris Rahn produced a stunning interpretation for Time Walk. And it just so happens that last week the winner of Rahn's piece wanted an actual Time Walk to match!

The Gurus

Everybody has their favorites when it comes to basic land art.

Among the group of friends I play with, one gentleman takes that sentiment very seriously. So seriously in fact, that he has a set of sleeved basics he plays with for all his drafts. What's so special about that you might ask?

His basic lands of choice are 75 Gurus. Take a minute to digest that fact. Conservatively speaking that's $5,000 worth of basic lands.

The Guru style has been emulated by many alter artists onto a myriad of cards. I've done quite a few myself (as seen in my blog banner). But never any actual Gurus. Thats is, until now.

Simon's collection is something pretty special. I'm honored to be part of it now!
