Artist of the Week: Michael C. Hayes

This week begins Commander Month here at Monday Morning MTG. As a result of this, we will be featuring artists who have created art for cards printed exclusively for Commander products.

Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter


Around the same time Commander 2011 came out, M12 was also coming out. Michael illustrated two cards in M12:

Distress  Crumbling Colossus

There have also been at least one card printed in each core set with Michael's art, and the card printed in M13 was also reprinted in M15.

Mind Sculpt  Angelic Accord  Paragon of Gathering Mists

Then in Innistrad, there were five cards printed, rather one card and two double sided cards,  in Dark Ascension there were two cards, and in Avacyn Restored there were two cards.

Undead Alchemist  Civilized ScholarHomicidal Brute  Reckless WaifMerciless Predator
Curse of Bloodletting  Nearheath Stalker  Cathedral Sanctifier  Appetite for Brains

There were also five cards printed in the Return to Ravnica block:

Deviant Glee  Stealer of Secrets  Purge the Profane  Truefire Paladin  Pilfered Plans

His art returned in Theros block, but this time only four cards:

Gorgon's Head  Noble Quarry  Siren of the Fanged Coast  Dictate of Erebos


Michael C. Hayes' art has shown up every year since 2014 and with any luck, we'll get to see more in the Khans of Tarkir block.

And now for some wallpaper. I would have preferred to get another artwork for the wallpaper, but Distress will have to do.



You can find Michael on his Website and on Twitter. You can find more of Monday Morning MTG on Twitter and Facebook.
