This card is epic. It never plays as less than a 6/6 in mono-black, and a 6/6 flier for 6 is above-par. But it grows. When it attacks, it will probably be 7/7. Put Shade's Form on it and the game ends very quickly. This was the first really good card I got, and it has a place in my heart along with shiny Thorn Elemental. This is the best-illustrated version of this around, by the way. 5/5

Her 7th art doesn't suck. That's proof of Nightmare's awesomeness right there.

@vantha

Nightmare is a horse because in the 1st ed. AD&D Monster Manual it's a horse. And Gygax got the idea, in part, from Fuseli's painting "The Nightmare." In fact, D&D was a massive influence on the Alpha of Magic. it slays me how people don't know these things.

@Morgaledh: Oh, of course. That's the entire reason. Etymology has nothing to do with it. You know - the part where a "mare" is a female horse.

I could never understand why Nightmare is a flying horse. Maybe Carl Critchlow is afraid of horses.
