There's a fantasy book "I'll take it by myself". It's about the sultan who was chosen to rule the country. He was chosen not by people, but by the spirit symbol of the country, who had a shape of a Golden Ram. The power of the sultan was magical, spiritual and unnatural, and his people's loyalty was also that way, like they were hypnotized. Fake love and fake loyalty. People even became rivals and criminals because he WANTED them to.

The sultan couldn't accept what he was GIVEN, he wanted to TAKE it all by his own hands. And so the Ram, who supposed to be his friend and companion, the living regalia of his power, became his enemy because the nature of that power came from it's magic, not from the sultan's leadership qualities.
I guess that's how the Golden Ram could look like. Beautiful, powerful, otherworldly, proud, a bit impersonal and a bit wicked.
Amazing work!

If only the card itself would do this awesome artwork justice :o

There's no excuse for it to not have an ability involved with mana of any color.
(Not because of the colorful background, since that's Nyx, which isn't necessarily connected to mana, but to enchantments.
But because it's a chimera made out of freaking gold, and because this set introduced Gold tokens that make mana of any color.)
