Magic: the Gathering Bad Artwork II

I have a Sharuum the Hegemon commander deck that features as many sphinxes as I can get my hands on. One of my biggest problems is some of the best sphinxes have the worst artwork. Take a look at Consecrated Sphinx. He has dragon wings. Everyone knows Sphinxes have feathered wings. What an ugly face also. How about Magister Sphinx? Just ugly. I mean I get that he is an artifact but why does he need to look so stupid? Finally Enigma Sphinx, what about this explains why he cascades or how he is an enigma? He just looks like a big asshole. I guess he has a big lion mane like a badass but it has 0 flavor.

I had to take matters into my own hands if I plan on looking at these cards on a regular basis. Thanks to some quick DeviantArt searches I found some amazing sphinx art, and I present the alexjuice modification:

Enigma Sphinx looks like he is asking a riddle of a little boy, and he looks like an artifact so that is a plus. Magister Sphinx is chilling with an espresso reading a book, probably about shit you will never understand. and Consecrated Sphinx is just a complete awesome looking powerhouse sitting on top of a castle. As it should be.

    The reason these sphinx look this way is due to the natures of there environments . Consecrated sphinx is all spoopy because it is a PHYREXIAN! honestly the symbol is even on the card .the other two are from alarm more specifically ester witch is were metal is used for every thing including body parts . Plus your enigma sphinx looks like a steam punk contraption and your magister sphinx looks like it wouldnt harm a fly let alone plummet someone’s life total to 10 .

    I just wanted to let you know that the sphinxes art look amazing in context :^)
