Still no goats. I'm going to have to write that letter.

It would appear that Mr Rosewater is trying to pass of Changelings as Goats. If anybody sees him could you inform him that this is illegal, and I don't care how much Mistform Ultimus is really a Goat in disguise, it just isn't going to cut it if we don't see any new goats since P3K.

Disgruntled Goat, Creature - Goat, tap: Eat Mark Rosewater. "Burp", 1/1

Today's preview was some new way for red to have more mana than is sensible and do things for free.

In other news, creature types are now lame. There is no Ali-From-Cairo! Rocs are now just "birds", Nightmare is a "nightmare horse", Raging Bull is an "ox", Nebuchadnezzar is merely a "human wizard". There are Human Wizard Artificers and Zombie Mercenary Assassins and so on all over the shop now, where before things were simple.

Bah. humbug.

Skyshroud Troll - Troll Giant :)

Henge Guardian - Dragon ! :O so is Lotus Guardian but Cromat is an Illusion
