I wonder if black gets pinging effects now, or if this is just a bend to fit the skeleton archer trope.

I'm pretty sure it's just a bend.

It's effectively reading "When this 3/3 Black creature for four mana enters the battle field, destroy target subset of creatures (in this case creatures with the toughness of one) or target player loses one life." all of which are things Black can and has done before.

I feel like unrepeatable (without combo) damage worls for Black. But should still mostly be kept draining and inefficient and unrepeatable to not be too red. Kinda interesting how limiting the effect makes it bend color because if this also gained you a lige I wouldn’t even question it being black.

Very pretty. Well maybe not "pretty", but beautiful in a dark and haunting way.

Reminds me of Heroes of Might and Magic 5. I loved having absurd masses of level 1 shooters.

Also, I'm always a little pleased when we get a skeleton despite China being a thing. I wonder if we'll ever get a humanoid skeleton legendary (rather than zombie) for possible offbeat tribal commander.

Nice art. Dislike the card as a design, too red. Should at least have slightly more defensive P/T.

We've seen more black creatures with higher power than toughness this set. Maybe they're changing that design rule
