― Ancient Craving, Magic: The Gathering

The power to utilize dark magic. Form of Magic. Opposite to Mysticism and White Arts.

Also Called

Capabilities

User can utilize the Dark Arts: a form of magic typically used for selfish, self-serving and/or nefarious purposes. Though it is not necessarily "evil" magic, dark arts tend to focus toward destruction, harming, cursing and otherwise complicating the lives of other people while advancing the user's own state. Users often reject social convention and the status quo, which some suggest is in a search for spiritual freedom. As a part of this, they embrace magical techniques and practices that would traditionally be viewed as taboo and are generally willing to go farther than most would even consider if it serves their ends.
