On Tuesday, March 30, 2021, the original oil on canvas for Ryan Pancoast’s Kasmina, Enigma Sage sold for $12,600 in an auction on the MTG Art Market Facebook group.

Measuring 24 inches by 30 inches, Pancoast’s Kasmina, Enigma Sage is a work of oil on stretched canvas. The original Magic: The Gathering art was commissioned for the upcoming set Strixhaven: School of Mages, and it’s the art for the borderless showcase version of one of the planeswalker cards featured in the set.

The auction started on the MTG Art Market just a few days after Wizards of the Coast officially revealed the card. Vorthos Mike acted as an agent for the artist

The auction’s opening bid of $10,000 was met immediately, and it had been raised to $12,000 within just an hour. The final bid was $12,600, and was made by a collector who primarily collects original art of legends and named characters of Wizards of the Coast’s popular card game.

Days before the end of the auction, two pieces of preliminary work were sold. One of them is an oil painted canvas board color study, and it was sold for $510.
