This, Portal 2 Bee Sting, Dragon Mask, Flailing Ogre, Flint Golem, Hickory Woodlot, Look at Me, I'm the DCI, Meng Huo's Horde, Nalathni Dragon, Ruby Leech, Stasis and Verduran Emissary are cards that were the only card by its illustrator, that I know. Are there any other?

Reverse Polarity has IMHO the worst art ever and I'm not even the only one who think so.

Its a well known fact that Gatherer posters are generally philistines.

I like the art quite a bit. Honestly so many of the new artists all look the same, (Not that they aren't all talented) it is nice to see something different. The art isn't bad, it is just stylistically different. Clearly many people can't tell the difference, or do not like styles such as this one and thus we have the more ***geneous selection today.

As for the card, its not as bad as it seems, you can destroy the creatures before combat damage is dealt, so you can save your creature if it would die. A neat trick, but not enough to make the card truly good. (True with most auras)

(I actually kinda like the art, it looks like something from some ancient relic. makes me think of the old medusa myths more than newer hyper art does...)
artwork aside -
the card is sort of interesting.
drop it on something mid=range, and let's play chicken!
sort of like Smite, it will destroy the blocker BEFORE damage is dealt, so the enchanted creature would survive.
also, +1/-1 is sometimes a lucky removal spell when you need it.
also... Lure

I love to see this abstract style of art on Magic cards every now and then. It seems to be something Wizards did more during the Mirage block. They don't do it so much anymore, but it definitely makes certain cards stand out in my memory. Ertai's Familiar and Knight of the Mists also come to mind...

I dislike this art. But worst ever? How could you so quickly forget word of command?

What about stasis?!?! Theres some art thats both abstract and horrid!

Have you lost your marbles? This is quite possibly the worst art on a magic card EVER. There is nothing abstract about it.

My cat could be like "I can haz crayonz?" and do a better job, and my cat died three years ago.

Could be ok on a trampling creature.

The power boost means that more trample damage gets through, and if it's ever blocked by creatures that have enough power to kill the enchanted guy, you can just sac the aura, kill the blockers, and trample through with the whole damage. Not saying the card is great, but it's playable in casual decks.

The art is ok to me. The more diversity the better.

Now would totally be a great time for this to get reprinted in Theros. Fits the flavor, they can update the middle-school level artwork....

Unfortunately the awkward old-school mention of "non-Wall" creatures probably mean it's not gonna happen. When was the last time you saw a modern card printed with that kind of wording? 'Course, they could always re-write the wording to be "creatures with defender", but they probably won't.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
