Mosaic-a-Week: Dune

This week I have something a little bit different – rather than doing a mosaic from Magic: the Gathering cards, I’ve done a mosaic from scenes of the Dune miniseries. This was an interesting experiment for me, and exposed a … Continue reading

Mosaic-a-Week: Boros Keyrune, Boros Signet

I like the Boros guild. I think part of it is my lawful side, part of it is the soldier bent that I liked from white of days passed, and part of it is just that they are fun (and … Continue reading

Mosaic-a-Week: Gruul Keyrune, Gruul Signet

When I sit back and thinking about the Gruul guild, it makes me think about how I never really got into competitive Magic. Those to things may seem a bit disconnected, but when I think of Gruul, I think of … Continue reading

Mosaic-a-Week: Simic Keyrune, Simic Signet

Simic is an interesting guild, as I tend to think of it like the role that blue used to occupy in classical Magic: big complicated creatures, usually with counters. For me, the Simic took the counters bit a little too … Continue reading

Mosaic-a-Week: Izzet Keyrune, Izzet Signet
