My girlfriend just got a new creature that neither of us had seen - the Ordradek (sp?) Not only is the card art great, but the animated sprite for territory possession is awesome. Do you have a favorite creature sprite?

Gladiator has one of the coolest card arts in the game, and his sprite is just plain lame. squonk's sprite is cute, and i like the ones that do funny little dances, like fungonoid or cornfolk. by the way, Tetramorph (E card you get at 40 medals) has an absolutely insane sprite.

I like the Doppleganger. He's just doing his thing, constantly shifting from his lumpy natural form to that toothy, green, pointy-eared thing in the weird hat and back again, over and over.
I feel kind of bad for the Storm Giant, having to toss that boulder above his head and catch it for all eternity.
Speaking of jarring card-art-to-sprite transitions, how about the Hellhound? On the card he looks eerie and menacing, standing in the mist with the jet black fur and the blood-red eyes. But then in his sprite he looks like an adorable yapping puppy (awww!).
Also I second the call to attention on the Tetramorph. The sprite is so dang big; it completely obscures the vision of a cepter who's on that space. The last game I played with my neighbor, I had just placed the Tetramorph when I had Haunt cast on me. The ghost-thing descended on my Cepter and vanished behind the Tetramorph and I was like "What's going on back there?"
Sorry guys, but the best sprite out there is Gremlin chomping down on his big peice of meat! If something insane happens, like a giant foot comes down from the heavens to crush all the symbol values, he might look up for a second... but then he just goes right back to chomping his steak!
I've had a couple of laughs when a Living Spear is poking my opponents cepter in the butt, when he's 1 space in front of it. looks best if your on a downward angle. But, for normal cards, I like Squonk. A scared little squirel thingy, I wish he was more useful.... Also, Night Fiend and Dark Master are pretty cool.

i like the Hunbaba and Dark Master. I think the Hunbaba is pretty kickass as a sprite, i dont use him in my deck tho. The Dark Master looks cool until somebody hits him with a magic bolt and he flips upside down with no lower body, hahah....
I like the Dryad's sprite - her fading in and out. The Gremlin is cool (though I thought that was a shield, and not meat since he kills items you use on your creature). I like the amazon's sprite because it actually looks female
Sanctum Guard has a nice sprite. Fate's sprite looks like she needs to be doing something by that candlelight. Roasting some berries, reading some cards, something.
