    Original Art - Magic: The Gathering: Limited Edition (Alpha) "Mana Flare" Card Painting by Christopher Rush (Wizards of the Coast, 1993). If you loved playing "burn" in Magic: The Gathering, this is the card for you. This artwork was used in Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Revised, 4th, and 5th editions. It was illustrated by the late Christopher Rush, who was a cornerstone of the MTG art world for many years. His pieces are loved and cherished by the Magic community and rarely come up for sale. This is a very rare opportunity to have a true piece of Christopher Rush's legacy. One of 116 pieces of art used for a rare card in the first release Alpha edition. This card would allow you to tap your lands for additional mana, thus making it easier to cast spells, play big creatures, and burn spells. Produced in acrylic on illustration board with an image area of 7" x 5.5". Sealed in an 11.75" x 10" mat. In Excellent condition. From the Len Osborne MTG Collection.

    More Information: EDIT: Emphasized that this is original art.
