One of the best things about Magic: the Gathering is the art. Wizards of the Coast spares no expense when it comes to making sure that their cards get some incredible pieces. Magic‘s most recent set, Innistrad: Crimson Vow had some great art in it and so today we’re going to list off our Top 10 for the best art from the set. This list is going to include all variations of art done for the set, including the Fang Frame Showcase arts, and the Dracula Series Arts as well.
10. Lightning Wolf
Number 10 on the list is Lightning Wolf. While there isn’t any extravagant landscapes or anything here, you can’t deny this good boy. While yes there’s plenty of wolves in this set, Lightning Wolf just hits a bit different.
9. Mischievous Catgeist
Number 9 on our list, and in a similar vein to Lightning Wolf, is Michievous Catgeist. Nothing is more adorable than a kitten playing with string, and the only reason it’s higher on the list is because I’m a cat person.
8. Grolnok, the Omnivore
Next up we have Grolnok, the Omnivore. It’s rare that we see a Frog in Magic, and this art is pretty awesome. You can tell that he’s the king of his swamp and he means business. Just look at that little arm sticking out of his mouth!
7. Demonic Bargain
Next up we have Demonic Bargain. There’s something truly special here, with the detail of everything. The black background really helps the blues and purples pop on this art.
6. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
Number 6 on our list is the reprint of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. One of the most hype cards in the set really got a glow up, showcasing her almost Knightly-ness, and the art really encapsulates the dark aesthetic of the world better than it ever has.
5. Voldaren Estate (Castle Dracula)
Our first “Dracula Series” card, and Buy a Box Promo for the set is Voldaren Estate but with the art of Castle Dracula. This is all about the landscape, and you really can get a sense of the grandness of the world and mansion through this stunning piece.
4. Eruth, Tormented Prophet (Eternal Night Showcase)
Number 4 on the list is the Eternal Night Showcase version of Eruth, Tormented Prophet. The detail that greyscale allows in this art is incredible. Seeing the beings that are tormenting Eruth, and really seeing the effects of the torment in her eyes is sick.

3. Olivia, Crimson Bride (Fang Frame Showcase)
Coming in at number 3 is the Fang Frame Showcase art for Olivia, Crimson Bride. This version of the card is absolutely beautiful, getting to see the crimson rose petals behind her, the detail in her dress. It really feels like a professional wedding photo.

2. Chandra, Dressed to Kill (Alternate Full Art)
It was really close between number 2 and number 1, but the number 2 slot goes to Chandra, Dressed to Kill‘s alternate full art. The key word on this piece is detail. The detailing on the metal midpiece of her dress, her see through sleeves, the flames on her shoulders. Ekaterina Burmak really did something unique and special here.
1. Sorin the Mirthless (Fang Frame Ayami Kojima Art)
Coming in at Number 1 has to be the Fang Frame art of Sorin the Mirthless by Ayami Kojima. Kojima is a world renowned artist, most notably being an artist for Castlevania, and WotC couldn’t have nailed this any more. Getting one of the most legendary vampire artists to create a piece for our boy Sorin is a massive win, and well deserved.
