About this piece:
This painting is a tribute to lore behind Magic: the Gathering's original major villains, the Phyrexians.

The eugenicist healer Yawgmoth earned the devotion of the Thran people through his life-saving treatments of disease, his brutally effective leadership, and his charismatic presence. When the Planeswalker named Dyfed found the world of Phyrexia, a long abandoned world of metal, she gave Yawgmoth a portal to access it, meaning to give him a place to quarantine and heal the sick of the Thran. Yawgmoth's ambitions to heal his people went beyond their sickness, however: he used artifice and dark magic to twist them free from all weaknesses, including mortality. His students and devotees became the first to change, and those of the Thran who were downtrodden and enthralled by Yawgmoth's promise of power and transcendence went willing through that portal. Thus, in Phyrexia, that Promise was made complete, and the first Phyrexians were born.

This scene depicts a seductress of the Phyrexian way, one of the first of Yawgmoth's students, leading you to the promised world of Phyrexia.
