It looks less like a rape scene, and more like Garruk about to punch Liliana's head into a pile of mush.

Which is odd isn't it? The card clearly threatens death and no one bats an eye, but the slightest inclination of rape and it's like "Brutal murder is fine but HEYHEYHEY RAPE: THATS NOT COOL MAN"

Indeed, a false rape accusation will stir up more people then a premeditated murder would. Nice PC world we live.

So, There is a new card called Triumph of Ferocity.

According to some, this card depicts an overt rape scenario.
So i am making this thread to get people's opinions on this controversy, and to see what they think the art shows.


I don't see how this card could be confused with showing a rape scenario. He looks like he's about to deliver a killing blow, even without knowing the context of this I wouldn't jump to the conclusion "Oh look this guy with the balled up fist and spike on his gauntlet thing looks like he's going to rape this poor woman."

Of course, knowing the context I realize that said 'poor woman' also isn't a poor woman and is in fact quite powerful. As well as knowing that the reason he's about to deliver a killing blow would be because she put a curse on him and if she wouldn't remove it herself, well, he'd have to try to get rid of it somehow and just like in the game one of the best ways to do so is to kill whoever put it on you! biggrin (But seriously Garruk, why not just cast a naturalize to remove the enchantment? gawsh.)

I could swear people complain about stuff like that just to get attention. Have they nothing better to do then look for things to be offended by.

Although, some weird way, it'd be kinda cool if they like pulled the card from print and printed it with some other art so the old "Rape Art" got all expensive and rare.

AND you could be like "Any of you guys got the rape Triumph Of Ferocity?" That'd be fun.

Maybe I'm just Naive, but I'm pretty sure pointing a bladed hand weapon at someone your holding down is telegraphing murder, not rape.
