Magic: the Gathering - Esper
In this world of wind and wave, control is the guiding force. Cut off from the chaos of red and green mana, Esper has become a magocracy. Enigmatic sphinxes counsel powerful wizards and seers. Everything here is observed and controlled. The forces of high magic rule supreme.

Magic: the Gathering - Jund
In the absence of white or blue mana, Jund has devolved into a roiling, primordial cesspit. Dragons top the food chain, at home in Jund’s countless volcanoes. While dragons stalk the skies, humans, goblins, and the lizardfolk called viashino lie low in Jund’s tar-spotted, vine-choked canyons. 

We never we able to pick up Broodmate Dragon and that kind of gives us a sadz.  :(

Magic: the Gathering - Elspeth, Knight Errant

S’more Shards of Alara goodness.  This block had Ajani Vengeant, Nicol Bolas, Tezzeret the Seeker and Sarkhan Volkswagen.  By far, Elspeth was my go-to Planeswalker for most of the decklists I wanted to run.  The art from Volkan Baga was pretty damn fine too.

Elspeth is a capable fighter and champion of the nation of Valeron. Her past is a mystery to those around her. She became a squire to a Valeron knight at age 17, and was knighted at 20. But she is not from Bant, and she evades questions about her childhood. No one knows that she’s planeswalker or that she was born in a place of horror and darkness. Her spark ignited when she was just 13 years old, and after fleeing her home plane, she never returned. In desperation, Elspeth sought a place she could call home. Then she found Bant. Elspeth’s most notable trait as a planeswalker is that she doesn’t want to be one anymore. She believes Bant is a true utopia, the best place she could ever make her home.

Magic: the Gathering - Naya
Life, passion, community, and the wild—these are what flourish without the influence of black or blue mana. In this lush land, life is celebrated. Instinct triumphs over machination. Here titanic predators are shown respect, while humans, elves, and catfolk called leonin seek to revere and respect nature.

Magic: the Gathering - Bant
Without the destructive or selfish impulses of red and black mana, Bant has become a golden utopia. Angels rule the realm with benevolence and grace. Humans and the birdfolk called aven resolve their conflicts with ritualized combat. Duty and honor are the bedrock of this kingdom of light.


We have to say that Matt Stewart’s Battlegrace Angel is one of our very favourite Angel illustrations.

Geamana: The Romanian Village Flooded by a Toxic Lake | Via

Copper exploitation at the mines of Rosia Poieni in the Apuseni Mountains, in Alba county, in Romania, was like a curse for residents of the twin villages situated in the foothills where excavations were carried out. Their ordeal began in 1977, when Romania’s communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu decided to exploit the huge copper deposit discovered underground.

The government forced the inhabitants of the nearby village of Geamana to leave their homes and abandon their way of life in order to make way for the toxic waste from Roşia Poieni mining pit. Around 400 families were evacuated and their village replaced by an artificial lake that served as a kind of catch-basin for the mine’s contaminated sludge to flow into.The waters of the lake is highly toxic laced with cyanide and other chemicals. As the lake grew, it engulfed what was once a beautiful village. The tower of the church and a few houses are all that remains today.

Hag stones, also known as Holey Stones or Witch Stones, are stones that have a naturally occurring hole and are usually found near oceans and other bodies of water. They are said to be powerful protection talismans, and when worn or carried they protect the bearer from curses, hexes, negative spirits, and harm. They have also been used to prevent nightmares, being strung on a bedpost or placed underneath pillows. It is also believed that if you peer through the hole of the stone that you can see the Fae Folk and otherworldly entities. If one broke, it is thought to have used its power to protect a life.
