I like this artwork. It's a pretty cool card to neutralize a spell.

Gog . I love this card so much.
Both the art and the flavour text.

When We meta-game We use the flavor text.
It is so fun

This is genius, the art on this makes that card so much more rage worthy.

ah was playing with a friend a week ago and when he pulled this syncopate on me all ah could say was"dude, your girlfriend's on a card!"

So....I am a rules adviser for MTG and at the pre-release event, and this card was opened by one of the regulars at my shop and he shouted, "OMG! It's YOU!" :jawdrop: And I was all like:confused: then I saw the card and was all :eyepopping: then I was :paranoid: cause I thought what if I was cloned onto a card??? :clone: and then I got over being paranoid and was just like WHEEEE SO COOL!!! :squee:. So I now officially collect this card and thank-you for giving me my Halloween costume idea and for putting me on a card although you do not know me and I did not win an invitational. Also, could I get this in a playmat? I think your art is amazing as always!
ClintCearley Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Professional General Artist
That's hilarious! It's amazing the Syncopate gal actually ended up looking like someone. You've got to get me a photo of you in that pose so I can see. So funny :D
MTGJaice Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
My friend makes printed alters and he said he would make me one when I got my costume together. I think the thing that makes me look like her the most is I style my hair the exact same way down to the spiking in the back.
drouu Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012
love this, would love wallpaper even more. :D
Ribbellious Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
Your work is amazing. Keep it coming!

Sassiest blue mage.
De-ep-th-ou-ght42 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
I love the little bit of motion blur on the finger wag. It's the small touches that makes your art among my favorite of the MTG artists.
ribbaribbahey Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
Haha this pic makes me laugh everytime i see it XD.Cute and funny :D
Puumastafunk Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
They're going back to Ravnica. :) Awesome.

Nice art, too. Very funny. It also seems like something that Jaya Ballard would say.
Goatllama Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Woah. She's wagging that finger really fast. Also, makes me think of a certain girl with a certain dragon tattoo.
Shinji-Kakaroth Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the finger movement!!! XD
NiimuraJun Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Art-wise one of my favorite Return to Ravnica cards so far.

Must be fun to work for WOTC

Why do I think she's the villain in the story? Because it would be at this point she begins to regale the heroine with her origin story. "You see, I didn't grow up like most kids. . . "
Calmar Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012
This is the sexiest girl ever on a MtG card - gorgeous face, stunning short hairstyle, badass attitude. :+favlove:

Thank you for posting this! I've seen a preview of that card earlier today and was wondering if it would be rude to ask you if you would post the art on DA. :)
Itamitheshade Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012
Beautiful, simply beautiful. It's become one of my all time favorite arts on MtG cards. Though she does seem to resemble the gal from Loading Ready Run for some reason.
ElectroLED Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, indeed! Waiting for something like this for a long time. As cool as Broken Ambitions can be, Syncopate surely does its job way better when required.
Also, cute-mage-girl reminds me of my ex. In a good way.. =P
L3M35 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Can imagine people in tournaments playing the card and saying "no no"
Jipeto Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the character and attitude of this image. It's so good! I was looking through the pre-release cards for Return to Rav and this art really caught my eye. Great Work!
