Title: Buried Alive
Artist: Brian Horton
Year: 1996
Medium: Oil on heavy illustration board

Created for the Magic: The Gathering Alliances expansion, Buried Alive is an iconic piece by legendary artist, concept illustrator, and art director Brian Horton. Released in 1997 by Wizards of the Coast, as part of the Mirage block, Buried Alive needs little introduction as a long-time building block for Reanimator strategies across multiple formats. This piece is one of the most visually striking Magic pieces I have ever seen in person, with incredible texture, composition, and use of light in the artist’s technique. Without exaggeration, it is as close of a throwback to the era of the Dutch masters that you will find in Magic artwork.
