I never imagined Ashiok would be as popular as it is in the competitive arena.

pwnylawyer asked: Why does Blightsteel Colossus have a corrupted Platinum Emperion in its art rather than a corrupted Darksteel Colossus. You're usually really good at owning up to/explaining oddities like that, but every time Blightsteel Colossus is mentioned as the marquee card of the set, no mention is made of its incorrect art.

I love how the answer to this question is just blank.

It's blank because blightsteel colossus is a corrupted darkteel colossus.
How can you confuse it with a platinum emperion? It even has the swirly energy thinghies.

Darksteel Colossus
Blightsteel Colossus
Platinum Emperion

Looking at them all side by side, I totally see what this guy is talking about. Blightsteel looks a lot more like a corrupted Emperion that a Darksteel.

I think the design started out as a corrupted emperion, and when it changed the art was already commissioned. In response, the art team went "Aw, crap. Maybe we can just add those swirly little energy lines to it?"

I think that Emperion is still larger than blighsteel and anyway is only natural that a corrupted darksteel colossus is larger than the original: the phyrexians couldn't carve the finished darksteel so they added material to it, or at least this is my interpretation.

I kind of suspect that the Emperion art was originally as a new Darksteel Colossus (and edited to remove the darksteel energy thingies) but the card got turned into Emperion instead. That left Blightsteel with a design that mimicked Emperion instead of Darksteel Colossus.

I don't mean this as an insult, but Chris Rahn has a pretty limited design method. He's gotten a lot better, but that early on, it was really bad.
