Elspeth ART

  • #1
    i'm tired of all the people guessing at what she looks like in card art form, so i decided to find it. And i present you with a Blank Plansewalker Card, (as i've No idea what she does, :-/) With the information we're clear on what she does. as well as the direct art that i recieved from a friend.



    Mods, do what you will with this, either lock or delete, it's just art that i got, so i made a MSE mockup of what the card hopefully will look like. we've no idea on what she does, But in all honesty, my speculatory ideas are already posted in the speculation forum

    the Art is by Volkan Baga if that helps in even the slightest

    Eheh... Looks cools (but the image may be cutted alittle like they do in the other planeswalkers)...

    And is the CC of the card already known?
    M10... What a great core set Grin

    a planeswalker with a knight on a title?

    wow nice pic.

    i wonder why would not make her creature type as Human Knight Planeswalker

    I guess wizard is avoiding planeswalker creature types.:rolleyes:

    An interesting mock-up, but I don't think they'd frame that piece of art in that way - it would be cropped so that the figure was larger and more central.

    why do people keep posting random stuff on the rumor mill. keep this in speculation or card creation please, I thought you actually found the real art.

    edit: the way I read the OP, it sounded like he googled some art up and made a MSE mock-up. sorry!

    also, god that is ugly. totally doesn't look like art I'd find on a magic card.

    This is the artwork but it looks kinda strange. Any news when is she going to be revealed?

    So no Black planeswalkers, 2 monocolored and 2 multicolored.
    white and red get 2. green and Blue get one. I have a feeling when we get another black planeswalker it will be more broken than both garruk and Tezz combined.

    More onto the Elspeth Speculation. I think that one of her +1 abilities will be to pump out squire tokens. the other one should be along the lines of vigilance, but i really wish it would give all of your creatures +1/+1 and flanking haha. The best however would be if it randomly granted horsemanship.

    the -8 ability... this really depends on what she starts off as. looking at the cost and seeing as we have not yet seen a wrath variant for this first set of the block, (this is usually when they occur correct?) i think that it could be a wrath the turn after she hits the field, but maybe even the turn she hits.

    so could she start with 8 loyalty? then there is a drawback to playing and wrathing the same turn, but does this make her strictly better than WOG? is it more likely to see here with 7 loyalty?

    Also i find it very flavorful that a Knight would come out with such a high loyalty

    Edit: Wow, while Ravarshi you normally are one of the people on this site that keeps me coming, i am slightly annoyed that you would post stuff like mana cost and +/- costs without truly knowing what they are. (If you do know these and put the correct ones, disregard this statement.)

    Edit: Ravarshi i see, and i agree with your reasoning that it feels 2WW its such an iconic cost that a white planeswalker should be

    The name of the card and loyalty up-down is all that is confirmed. I'm not sure where the mana cost and art came from.
  • #11
    i got hte art from a friend, and the mana cost is just a Guesstimate, she just feels 2WW, that's not confirmed

    Hurray for the second coming of Serra. lulz.

    I have to say, Volkan Baga did a great job on this art if it is indeed the art of the card. Stoic Angel and now this, he's on a roll.

    The art's the real deal, if this pic is to be believed (except it's mirrored there).

    Looks nice, I reckon that it'll be cropped though.

    Nice find on the art. I think it likely that for the real card, the art would be zoomed in more, and also that it would be pushed up in the card frame so that the head is near the top of the card (and with the top of the head just popping out above the top frame), like most planeswalker cards.

    This is identical to the art from the Planeswalker's Guide to Alara. As far as I know, the casting cost, or even colors of this planeswalker have not been revealed, so the card is speculative. This isn't new information.

    So we have a white, a blue, a RW and a RG planeswalker, right?
    the blue one seems from Esper, the white one from Bant.
    Ajani is clearly from Naya and the Vol is shown on the Jund wallpaper.
    It looks like Grixis is totally ignored by the planeswalkers. But haven't we seen Liliana in some other art?
    And as we all know, if one color gets ignored in a set, it will return overpowered in the next. (Torment ftw!)

    Except the 'Default Player" is Oriss, Samite Guardian.

    This art might just be for a seperate white legend.

    No planeswalkers on Naya because no one in their right mind would choose to live there... it says right in the Planeswalker's Guide that Grixis is a place you visit briefly at most, and only as an example for students of necromancy. Even if you are a necromancer, after you've learned the advanced techniques of the plane, you'd get out of there to where there are more resources for you to reanimate. Living things are too scarce and there is too much competition from other necromancers and demons.

    For God's sake...people, before you post something like this, please at least look at the picture of the Shards of Alara Fat Pack:



    And now tell me who could probably be the lady between Tezzeret and Ajani at the cover of the Player's Guide....

    This is a legit Elspeth's art. We also know that her abilities are +1/+1/-8. What we do not know is the starting loyalty and CC.

    True, although i agree that it will probably be 2WW or 1W (making her the cheapest plansewalker ever)

    i would love to see her using the exalted mechanic, dropping in small tokens with it, then her large ability could be something actually useful for once. on a side note i do believe also that since squire pops up 1 time this will be the card it uses.
    +1 -Put a 0/1 Human Squire Creature with exalted into play under your control.
    +1 -target creature you control gets +0/+6 until end of turn.

    It is the real art, they released the planeswalker guide to shards at gencon, it has LOTS of art that is not online, including that one...

    That'd be Akrasan Squire.
