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

Elder Dragon Legends

  • Set: Legends
  • Artist: Edward Beard, Jr.

These early attempts at the elder dragons that would define a segment of the Magic mythos were highly sought after, but frankly the art was kind of weird and often didn't scream "giant dragon god being" to me.

They were definitely powerhouses of special abilities at the time, although each required a continuous spending of mana each turn to avoid early death. The various dragon legends of each plane would get a big makeover, both in mechanics and art style, down the line in future sets.
