Cards will continue to use the current terminology if they refer to cards that aren't on the battlefield, objects that aren't creatures by default (for example, enchantments), or groups of objects that might include some creatures and some noncreatures (for example, permanents). They also won't use "dies" if they refer to cards being put into a specific graveyard, as Nim Deathmantle does.
"Dies" is shorthand for "is put into a graveyard from the battlefield" that's used exclusively to refer to creatures.

Seems like "dies" might lead to as much confusion as what it replaced -- try convincing a new player that something removed from the game didn't "die"...
Hold on a second, just realized something. Will cards like Privileged Position get errata like "Other permanents you control have Hexproof", or will they keep their unkeyworded wording? Will Leyline of Sanctity give you Hexproof?
Go for the Throat"Kill target non-Artifact creature"
Or they could just send Squirrel's. They would take out the Eldrazi and Phyrexia no problem.

This is GARBAGE. Welcome to a new era of Pokemon Magic.Keywording Troll Shroud only took how many freaking years? Fail.No one likes Bloodthirst. Fail.'Dies'? Do I even need to say any more? Fail.

This is GARBAGE.This must be undone. Forever.I fought the "battlefield", "casting", and "this turn" on creatures (which still makes no sense: just read the bloodthirst wording), but this is just going way too far. Welcome to a new era of Pokemon Magic.
Two problems with 'Hexproof':1. It sounds like it means that counters can't be removed from it, a la Vampire Hexmage or Hex Parasite. (Of course, there's also the old card, Hex, but in that case, 'hex' refered to the number six.) 2. It is really a specialized form of shroud, and so would have benefitted from a name with 'shroud' in it. What would I have argued for if I'd been at that meeting? Either 'Hateshroud' or 'Elusive'.
Troll less badly?
Well, showing sorin markov would seem to strongly suggest that the M12 walkers are reprints (whereas many have speculated new planeswalker cards.)Unless that was already confirmed or something.
