No, i don't know. This picture just fits with Phyrexia so much better, The trail of smog and carnage left in its wake as you feel helpless watching it advance towards you.

This is my most favored of all the art in MTG. :D

God i love WotC for reprinting this guy with this epic picture! The picture from 7th and 8th is from Mark Tedin also, but this one rocks the universe!

This creature, and not Darksteel Colossus, should have been the baseline for Blightsteel Colossus.

From PC's baseline, give BC 8 cost, give it infect, keep its "doesn't untap...needs 3 to block...blah, blah" and then make its untap cost be Phyrexian WhitePhyrexian BluePhyrexian BlackPhyrexian RedPhyrexian Green -- would have been a good homage to an enjoyable creature (rather than a crass insult to one), fair-costed, but still potentially game-ending. Flavorful too.

I don't know why they ever changed the art in the first place. This was the first ever rare I actually upped and bought. Decent card and fantastic pic. Use with something that untaps it though or you're in for a world of pain! Voltaic Construct or Voltaic Key would be your best bets.

Hook this homie up with Vorrac Battlehorns and go to town!

This card was certainly a game-winner in it's day. People would use Grim Monoliths to power it out faster, and use Voltaic Key to untap it.

actually i think the other one looks cooler simply because of the strangeness of the machine you know?

well... yeah its an 8/8 for 7 with a circumventable ability, but why go so far to circumvent the tap restriction when all you've got is... and 8/8 for 7? I mean, the old cards that tournament spikes love are broken in their hands, but the cards that were once good in casual? This card was only powerful when an 8/8 was something special. If the mana was further lowered, i can see it, but you're on;y saving 1 mana for it's power. 1. I mean, Ill take Doomgape, or Kalonian Behemoth, Khalni Hydra, Liege of the Tangle, Lorthos, the Tidemaker. Yeah these are colored, but, ooh, Platinum Emperion, 8/8 for 7 with drawback? meet 8/8 for 8 with bonus. Ah, supreme exemplar, 10/10 for 7 all you need is an elemental out. The colosus isn't bad, but, eh, meh
