The card whose art needs no introduction, apparently.

Witherweaver is a smart person. She should really take over the thread from here. Thank you for understanding me.

9. Caravan



Camels are awesome animals, so what's better than a bunch of camels? Some glorious dunes? A quiet sky? A scope implying a greater adventure than what is present in the picture? Sure, Caravan has all of those things. It's a simple image that says a lot, and the kicker is that you are likely to set down a group of them together, making it look like you have a big string of camels, which is a neat visual. (Those of you who only play online may have never noticed this) Hi, I'm JSH. And I'm a camelholic.

The funny thing is that you got 0 respect and he got 20 (at the time of writing).

I dare say that the desert landscape and the visible ocean make it seem like the scene is set in africa, not the middle east, so the expected animals should be Cameli dromedarii, not Cameli bactriani. Curiously, the one at the far left has a hump visible in front of the position the person is sitting on - this does not, however, imply a second hump, as sitting just above a Camelus dromedarius'* gluteus maximus is common riding practice.

*With respect to readers not speaking latin, i refrained from declining Camelus dromedarus into genitive. Correctly it would have to be Camelus dromedarii.

8. Merchant Ship



The eastern setting and beautiful sunset give Merchant Ship a unique flair, making it a standout picture in the set, even though it's mainly the colors and not the content that make it work. I am actually not sure if the ship in the background is the titular Merchant Ship or if the man carrying the crate (ouch) is departing from it. Dominion art.

My Latin is a bit rusty, but I really think it should be Cameli Dromedarii Gluteum Maximum, since "on" arguably calls for an accusative, as does Latin Super/Supra. In Taxonomy, the species (Dromedarius) is generally considered an adjective to the Genus (Camelus), so Camelus gets the genitive and Dromedarius follows suit.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Otherwise, you may return to your regular art ranking activities.

To clarify, I am not actually sure either. I also assumed it was part of the docks, but it's not 100% clear to me.

I have a new theory.

JSH is only doing the art rankings to get respect, so he is only telling us what we want to hear. It is an evil plot, but I think I have enough evidence to convict him!

My latin is much rustier than yours, it seems. I was treating Camelus Dromedarius as a name, but apparently didn't think enough about that. I did not even consider that, to be consequent, Gluteus Maximus would have had to be in another case, too.

It was submitted too dark, and brightened.

7. Ghost Ship



I will admit the rankings are getting tougher for me now. I like Ghost Ship's art a lot, but I was forced to only put it here. The cool thing about Ghost Ship is that it has a simple style that still succeeds in making it look otherworldly and a little spooky. The sky colors are an excellent backdrop and I love how you can still see the sky through the ship's sails, implying translucency. There seems to be a party going on in the back of the ship too. I hope the skeletons realize that punch is going to go right through them.

My favorite part about Ghost Ship is that it translates into Dutch as "The Flying Dutchman".

I agree. One of the few really nice translations.

6. Haven



Gorgeous stuff here. A statue holds a flame as a makeshift lighthouse. Two stylish boats enter the haven on water that glimmers in the flame's light, creating a sense of the tranquility of night. What are they headed for? An all-you-can-eat bacon breakfast at the local Waffle House. It's worth traveling the entire way just for that.

I will probably get tons of hate for this, but Waffle House isn't even that good.
