The Best Art from Magic: The Gathering’s Dark Ascension Set
Following up last week’s post featuring the best art from MTG’s Innistrad set, this week we’re taking a look at even more vampires, demons, ghouls, specters, and zombies – this time, from Dark Ascension.
Dark Ascension is the second of three sets in Magic’s Innistrad block. Set in the plane of Innistrad, the angelic protector Avacyn has gone missing and humans are on the verge of extinction as they’re enslaved and butchered by aristocratic vampires, zombies, patchwork Frankenstein monsters, and other not-so-nice things.
Enjoy a collection of meticulously hand-picked artwork below and be sure to check the artist links. Those dudes & dudettes don’t get nearly enough credit.
