Scarlet & Violet best cards
Great Tusk (Special Illustration Rare) #102
Starting off strong with the Great Tusk in this piece of art that looks fit for a museum as the monster surfs the sands.
Drowzee (Illustration Rare) #210
Leaning into the TCG’s more unique art style is this Drowzee card that resembles the hieroglyphic look of the Ancient Mew card.
Arcanine ex #224
There’s no doubt that this muted card of OG Arcanine makes this list with a minimalistic design that makes its art style look that of traditional Japanese.
There’s some eye-catching linework going on in this scene with Scovillain sitting at some sort of diner and erupting fire everywhere.
Klawf (Illustration Rare) #88
This Klawf artwork may not be the most striking in the set, but its natural tones and depth of field make it a welcome full art.
