Back when the free side of QS was home to something that eventually became affectionately known as my "Alticle", I tried to spotlight Eric Klug's latest exploits. He's far from the only alterist working, although he is most people's favorite and easily the best-known. It's been a while since I brought his work up, and I got into a debate today with someone.
We got to talking about his alterations of power.
These are all obviously ridiculous pieces of art that make people want to burn their paintbrushes and call it a career. But is he "ruining" power by painting on it?
The person I talked to today was no in favor of such alterations as they essentially take a piece of power out of rotation forever. In most cases, that's a pretty good point. However, a trend I've noticed lately with his alters is that they serve to take cheap, jacked-up power and give it a new home in a collection or a cube. Take this trop for instance.
Give it some Klug love, and
Squibbly Doo! It's a sleek Lamborghini.
How do you feel about Klug alters? Are they bad for the market or are they a great way to beautify budget power? Sound off below.
Ready for another sexy-looking Klug original?
Put that in your face! Brainstorm Brewery's latest token is an Eric Klug original. How's that for sexy?
Personally, this is the only Sword of Feast and Famine I will even consider playing with, now. Way to ruin set art for me, Klug.
Sound off below. Card ruiner or best artist ever?
