Todays random card is...
I think this guy is really cool. I really like shadow though and think it's one of the cooler mechanics from back then. This guy isn't good if you don't have other shadow guys though which is a bummer.
they need more creatures with shadow, maybe only put it on black and green creatures then instead of having shadow white and blue could get "Light" which allows for blocking creatures with shadow and can target shroud creatures. then you give red the ability to have both light and shadow or maybe switch red and green around.
but ya i always liked the idea of shadow and the creatures that had it but thought it was out of flavor for it to be in colors that weren't associated with darkness and absence of light.
I tend to dislike cards like this. They depend entirely on the block itself. Once they rotate out of Standard, they're largely worthless. And shadow was just Flying 2.0.
Shadow would've been more flavorful than flying for the ghosts of Innistrad, though. (I found that a little too Halloween.)
Shadow is a very nice mechanic, mostly with hatred .
Finally a card that isn't complete jank. A 1/1 for with unblockable has its uses, but is pretty outclassed by Silhana Ledgewalker and Invisible Stalker . So really you need some shadow guys to make this guy useful, and I'm not even sure you want to run him then. All I remember from my last match with a shadow deck is Swamp , Dark Ritual , Dauthi Marauder ... my memory is black from there.
Unfortunately, shadow decks aren't really playable anymore in my casual group. Since there has been a huge power creep in creatures over the past few years, the deck runs into problems no matter what you're facing. Either you face a creature-heavy deck that outraces you or you face a deck with little to no creatures, in which case you were better off running vanilla creatures with higher power. It's pretty sad because that was one of my favorite decks to use at the time and Dauthi Warlord has probably my favorite art of all time on a card.
