About as cool as it gets.
About as cool as it gets.

Some days I come up with witty titles. And some days I just let the title say it all.

This is one of the second kind days, and I'm pretty sure it lives up to the hype. I'm really someone who is into alters. I have a few that I've picked up along the way, but I've never gone out of my way to have any done. I appreciate looking at them, but that's usually where it ends for me. Well, except for my custom-painted Silvergill Adept playmat, but that's not so much of an alter.

Of course, if I did, I know where I'd be going for them. This alter, as well as a ton of other awesome ones, are done by Eric Klug, Magic alterist extraordinaire. You can find more his work here.

Of course, I'm sure some of you out there have your own cool alters to share, so let's see them!
