What's the best artwork you've ever seen on playing cards? Ideally a standard deck of 52 playing cards. Photos or links to purchase are appreciated.

I find the flavor text lacking. Also, the mana costs could be clearer.

I saw some "breathtaking" ones on Kickstarter. Unfortunately, I couldn't buy them because the text said that they were "exclusively for collectors", and I'm not a collector. Plus they look horribly pretentious.
