How'd I forget about Arcum?! Thank you!
YES! I knew there had to be old red dude out there! I may have to run these guys JUST for the flavor. Old, wrinkly flavor, but flavor nonetheless.
Quote from Hunding Gjornersen »
Red is really more of a "live fast, die hard" kind of color. You may be able to find some elders on red cards... getting toasted.
I realize this is being nit-picky, but Old Man of the Sea is a Djin, not a man. Djins have been known to join the Jeskai, though, so maybe it isn't that big of a deal.
Here's a few more:
- Sage of Lat-Nam
- Brine Seer
- Hapless Researcher
- Soldevi Sage
- Izzet Chronarch
- Spark Mage
- Apprentice Wizard
The Antiquities version of Sage of Lat-Nam is much more old manish than this one.
Quote from Zygous »For being a game about magic, the art direction tends to go out of there way to avoid the gray bearded old wizard.
Barrin, Master Wizard
Martyr of Sands
Geist of Saint Traft
I'd also take a look at the card art for Portal Three Kingdoms and all of Kamigawa block, since both there stories tended to have more elderly characters.
Quote from Mercury01 »There's Lighthouse Chronologist.
Patron Wizard, Wizard Mentor, Lullmage Mentor and Venerated Teacher... I guess teaching takes a toll on you.
Academy Researchers look like they have tenure.
Magus of the Unseen is quite the silver fox.
The original illustration for Archivist is an old guy paging through a book.
There's a lot of "old masters": Master Healer, Master Apothecary, Odric, Master Tactician, Serene Master.
The old lady on Enlightened Tutor is married to the old man on Land Tax.
Quote from LEH »Eidolon of the Great Revel is a pretty bonkers good card. It does see cross format play but only in specific strategies. I have no doubt it will rise over time (barring bannings or reprints) but I'm not sure it will skyrocket. Dig Through Time would be a decent investment as I'm sure it will rise - especially if Treasure Cruise gets banned (which is a real possibility). DTT also sees quite a bit of cross format play too. My best advise, if you're looking to invest seriously, is to pick up Fetches. Foil, regular, whatever... just get as many as you can while they're in print. They will go up, probably nowhere near as much as they were, but they will go up. Focus on getting the Blue ones though, they're the most desirable.
