Magic Card Art: Young Pyromancer

Card Name: Young Pyromancer
© 2013 Wizards of the Coast

Gatherer Link:

Medium: Digital
Original Art Available? No
Artist Proofs Available? SOLD OUT

Artist Notes: This was a funny one. I mean, there was definitely a sense of humor to the art brief here. Not Unhinged funny, but close enough. The Young Pyromancer is essentially a Chandra Nalaar fanboy, performing some fire magic while wearing homespun bits of Chandra-like clothing. I imagined the skirt piece being made out of his mom's drapery or something.

Far too small to see on the actual card, but the front piece of Young Pyromancer's belt is engraved with "Chandra."


  1. Hey Cynthia. Love the little details in this piece! I heard from Graham from LRR or someone that they met you at some convention, and that the original sketch for this was the Young Pyromancer lying on some posters and being all like quote Graham "my waifu". How much of this is true, because I feel seeing that in all those YP tournament decks a while back would have just been the best XD.
