Steve Argyle - Magic: the Gathering Modern Masters 2017 Liliana of the Veil, card # 76/249
[Overall release #112] - [Reprint release #36]
Modern Masters 2017 Edition is the third release of that limited release product line for the Magic: the Gathering card game. It releases on March 17, 2017. The set is comprised of entirely reprinted cards, although some cards have new illustrations. Steve had two of his cards reprinted with his original illustrations in the set (Urbis Protector was also reprinted but given a new illustration.) This is the first of Steve’s two reprints in the set.
This booster pack reprint was a long time coming (although it actually was reprinted as a promo about two years prior). The 2017 Edition of Modern Masters included cards from the Innistrad and Return to Ravnica blocks for the first time. The inevitable reprinting of Liliana of the Veil, originally from the Innistrad block, was never really questioned. It opened for presale on starcitygames at $70 for non-foils and $130 for foils which is thankfully a sharp decrease from what you can expect to pay for the Innistrad copies.

So… head count. Here we have Jaclyn, Minion #486, and Christine, Minion #86 (… curious numerical anomaly) posing in front of Steve’s versions of their namesake planeswalkers Chandra Nalaar and Liliana Vess.
There’s been a lot of talk on my feed about how the Gatewatch are just waltzing through the challenges they face like a home-made banner at a pep rally. While they are all currently whole in body, and the perceived threat from each plane is no longer actively threatening, follow me down this line of thought.
The Gatewatch have failed at what they have set out to do, every time.
That video brings up a good question: How DO you put googly eyes
on magic cards. Probably pretty simple, but a video like the one you
just posted (except you actually apply the googly eyes) would be kind of
