Primordial Hydra MTG by chasestone Primordial Hydra MTG by chasestone
This was for a promo reprint of "Primordial Hydra". Since its a promo, I'm pretty sure the only way to get the card with this image is to purchase Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 on xbox. Otherwise it will have the artwork by Aleksi Briclot (which is awesome).

Some people have said that the eyeless falcor look is off putting, so I just want to say up front that this was intentional. Who hasn't watched the Never Ending Story and wished that Falcor was several stories tall, had hundreds of heads, navigated by sound/smell alone and compelled chiefly by an insatiable blood lust?

I'm sad because you wouldnt be able to ride it into battle because if you managed to get up onto its back then one of its other heads would nom you off and that saddens me

Hate to see what happens when that creature wakes up and all of its necks are tangled.  . . .

I think that it's more disturbing in the fact that it DOES remind me of Falcor.

Best Hydra I ever encountered.
The lack of eyes, the fur, the doglike? teeth, the movement of the necks
I can almost hear it scream and feel the pressure of it's presence.

I've read the Never Ending Story, and watched it as well at some point. However, the only thing I wished for was a Falcor that was real and mine. But your hydra did remind me of Falcor nevertheless, so good job on that. ;)

Personally, I find this horrifyingly scary. More so than is normal.. Impressive work! I think the realistic-ness of the art is what makes this truly terrifying.. *shudders and shivers at near the same time with a tentative, wide-eyed, 'thumbs up' of approval*
