Flying Grotesque, Hidden Hybrid

Apparently, far, far back in the mists of time, there were games that were not on the computer. Some of them involved running about, which was very dangerous. Some of them involved cards, such as the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering. Why am I talking about this?

Because it involves grotesques, naturally. Here are some of the cards used to play the game:

My favourite is the Shrieking Grotesque.

"Orzhov mage-sculptors bring their stone to life before they carve it. The shrieking begins as soon as the mouths are formed."

Kinda makes me want to play. As if I didn't spend enough time sitting down. Magic: The Gathering has a pretty intriguing website, which you can visit here.
