Ironically, the color green seems to be missing on this bird's feathers.

Also, dies to Storm crow.

One of my favorite flavor texts in MTG.

Iconic {G} card

"Long ago, birds of paradise littered the skies. Thanks to the city's sprawl, most now exist as pets of society's elite."

Since this is a core set card, it is no longer specific to Ravnica's theme, they reprint cards with the same artwork like that all the time, with core sets it's more about aesthetics than theme. And 'paradise' is not limited to lush, tropical places... to my mind, a paradise is any happy, ideal place or state.

Personally, I don't like the older artwork as much because of how simple they look. The older artwork doesn't look elegant or flowing enough to represent paradise to me. That is just my opinion, though. But I have a feeling that is what WoTC was thinking as well.

If Wizards loved me they would surprise me and print a modern version with the old art so I could get a foil. I love the look of the old art, but I don't care for white-bordered cards. I also think it would be aesthetically interesting to drop a few very old arts back into modern sets for contrast. As much as I loved the art direction in Ravnica I've never liked this art, and it's unfortunate to see it continuously reprinted when there's a prettier option laying around unused.

i have 2 guesses for this card:

they will skipp this in m13 and print it in return to ravanica, and b/c its in a non-coreset set it will get new art


they print this in m13 with new art to foreshadow what is going to happen in return to ravanica

either way we are getting new art :D

Confirmed as missing in action in M13. Hopefully he'll be returning to Ravnica.

The second time it will be excluded from a core set. Mysteriously right before another Ravnica block. I'll be quite surprised if it isn't reprinted. Looking forward to new art though. 7th8th edition art was beautiful, and the original art is a classic. But I've grown quite bored of this one.

For those of you missing him in M13 or Return to Ravinca, just wait until 'Sinker'
