    Whilst this is the art I definitely wanted to see printed in paper (and with the possibility of getting one in foil too!), I also feel bad that Wizards didn’t decide to use the more iconic Masques artwork which is what comes to mind when I think Brainstorm. FeelsBadMan, but doomed if you do, doomed if you don’t I guess. At least it isn’t the Izzet vs Golgari one again, I am sick with that art, I just don’t like it.

    On another note, these old set symbols as watermarks are just, mmh, so nice…

      I want to see what this looks like foil. I prefer the Promo with the MM art, but maybe seeing this foil will make it stand out.

      • Happy The Cat

        dunno about the foil, it looks a bit dark to really look good, we’ll have to wait and see

        • Shawn Michael Diaz

          Foil watermarks are always nice and the lightning could pop which is something I like as a Storm plaher

      • Gleemax

        I would expect the foiling to accentuate the bolts of lightning and perhaps other sources of light. Still, wizards usually does well foiling cards with fire and lightning on them like Winterflame from Khans.

    Brainstorm, Relentless Rats in Pauper. R&D is doing some serious weed.
    EDIT: The art… a brain in a storm…brain…storm…heyyyyyy

    • Cooper Jurgen ZIlkenat

      Brainstorm was already in pauper tho

      • TezzeretofCarmot21

        Really? Nvm I didn’t know that.

        • TheFullMontzy

          Also, wizards doesn’t care about pauper or edh as much as they care abouto standard, modern, and legacy. Those are the money makers.

    Wow literally just making art meet name… ok!!
    Wonder if they tried that with flash?

    We could have called it thr literal set, lightning bolt is a lightnight bolt. Doomsday has 5 balls and a sad man! Hmm not very doomy, Undead Gladiator looks undead and gladiatorish. Bident of Thassa is literally a giant bident and its floating in the sky! Whivh i giess is where bidents hand out. Blood Moon is literally a blood red moon. I wish they took this more seriously and made all this sets art the ditect literal translation of the cards names

    Disapointed wotc, im as sad as they guy in the doomsday art :(

  • dashkatae

    So how much do you think a foil one of these is going to cost?

    • Kahai

      It honestly depends on how they get foiled. If it is the same process they’ve been using for a couple years now, meh. They are going to sell like normal, now if they switched back to the older foiling process… oh man, you can tell the difference when you see the cards. Go look at some pack fresh Scars foils compared to foils today.
