    Here is the thing about many cases like this: artist is not donating his artwork to a Wizards of The Coast, so they include it in MTG cards. Artist is selling his artwork. For money. It may be a salary, it may be a limited deal, but money are involved in it, and after job is done, artwork becomes a part of card design, which is protected by company who ordered this artwork and made a payment for it. If this company is anything like WOTC (and they should be, 7 years on a market as someone claimed) - they own that artwork and exclusive rights to use it for selling merchandise, unless otherwise specified. Then again, it's not like this is complete clone (artwork and 3d model based off artwork), but...

    This is a tricky case. Same as a story of Timebreaker was, and Valve decided to just set everything without hurting anyone. They may aswell take safe path again, it certainly made an item with interesting history and a lesson to better police workshop submissions.
