Magic The Gathering: Looking Back at 25 Years of Awesome Card Art

Unholy Strength

  • Set: Alpha
  • Artist: Douglas Shuler

For most people who don't regularly play the game, this will always be the card most associated with Magic history.

There have been many different iterations of this black creature pumper over the years, starting with the controversial flaming pentagram edition that had parents and religious leaders up in arms in the midst of the ludicrous Satanic Panic era (back when D&D was renaming devils to Baatezu and demons to Tanar'ri).

Clearly, Wizards Of The Coast decided to go a drastically different direction in later versions, although there's always some little nods to the original in the art.
