I like the art for the sole fact that it shows the guy's skin boiling. It's pretty grisly.

As his final torment, Tibalt forced the vampire to play Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded in his Magic: The Gathering -deck.

(Art comparison rant)

While the old artwork seemed to be more focused on the black aspect with the "memory loss",
this new artwork is more focused on the burn from the red aspect.

In my opinion, the old one was already somewhat iconic and is easily distinguishable from other cards,
which is probably the reason why most people tend to prefer that one.

But the new one is just as great:
It seems the memory loss is induced here by the severe pain from melting that poor guy's freaking face!
And you still see that the burns aren't caused by flames but by lightning, so it's still true to the card's name.
Also, we get to see Tibalt enjoying what he does best - which i think is forcefully sharing his madness with others.

Not really sold on the new art, Tibalt in the back looks quite good, but something about his victim just looks off to med.

However this is Blightning, so any rating below 4,5 just seems like blasphemy.

This art is a downgrade.

Tibalt in the back hiding in the shadows with his creepy face is awesome, but the blightning effect on the face, pouring out of his fingers, pales in comparison to the cynical touch of the original art. That bleak dark skull with smoke and lightning etching out of it epitomized the cruelty of hitting for a solid 3 for 3 CMC and then punishing them further with two discards. This art makes Blightning look like Mini-Blightning, as if it's doing only 2 damage and 1 discard.

Awesome reprint, meh art. The original art was better. Still love the card, though.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
