Anyone who thinks this is rapey or sexist is totally moronic; I've lost count of how many cards depict Liliana dominating some male victim. This is two capable combatants where the male happens to have the upper hand. Not to mention the sequel to this card shows her winning anyway.

HEY!!!  Big brute!  Hands off the necromancer! lol.

This is seriously fantastic artwork.  Detailing, color, pose, and their expressions are superb.

God I am hoping this comes out of the Innistrad storyline. Been so long since Garruk got his hands on the bitch.

This is awfully rapey. Cards like this don't really help the community's image of being dominated misogynistic socially inept men.

I agree completely, though I'd say 'rape' rather than 'rapey'.

It's a very sexual image. Liliana Vess's legs are separated by the male character's leg. Her skirt is parted to reveal stocking-and-suspender style clothing. Garruk's bulging veins are suggestive of an erect phallus.

The male character is much larger than, and physically overpowering, the female character.

So there is a strong suggestion of sex, there is physical violence and there is lack of consent. That's rape, clearly.

If you think the guys who play magic are "misogynistic socially inept men" then I think that says more about you being sexist than anything else. Stop automatically making negative assumptions about a group just because of their gender. 

Also the double standard in your comment should be pointed out where you seem to be offended by a card that shows a man winning a fight with a woman, but nowhere do I see people like you complaining about cards (of which there are plenty) of a woman winning a fight with a man.

you are an idiot. It not 'rapey' at all, just because a witch is being theatened by a man. Your statement doesn't help your image of being an idiot and seeking shit out like this so you can call it rape.
And the MTG Community at large isn't filled with misogynistic, socially inept men.

A witch goes miles out of her way to kill a guy's pets and curse him with magic cancer just because. This is ok.
That guy catches up to her and threatens to kill her if she doesn't cure him. This is rape.

I hope you're a woman because if the world turns how all you feminazis want it you'll end up at a concentration camp otherwise because you were too afraid to remind women that violent actions have violent consequences.

I couldn't have said it better!

I could see why you would think that.  If you have no idea who these characters are or why they're fighting.  And if you only spend half a second looking at the actual art of the card.  Otherwise you're just being intellectually dishonest, trying to find a controversy where none exists.

totally agree with Josh.

I think the "rapey" guy needs to do some research on the characters before he says anything.

You, my dear sir and or ma'am, just earned my respect.

Why is Garruk looking at the viewer? Are they fighting or posing for a Con photo?

Now the real question... is he too far gone already?
