Give and Let Give #43: 10/31 - 11/06

WRITTEN BY

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what's the fairest trade of them all? Clearly the Mirror Universe is the fairest this week, but that was the top trade back in Week 15. Special shout out to GOVEGANPLEASE!

Instead that leaves a Human... a Soldier... a WARRIOR, who far surpasses the champions of his sphere. This Legend has haste and Horsemanship, which pretty much means unblockable (Attacking creatures with horsemanship can not be blocked by creatures without horsemanship).

If you decide to play this 6 mana 4/3, there is a good chance your opponents will not be able to block it, unless they are also playing a card from Portal Three Kingdoms. This is the only expansion that had any cards with Horsemanship outside of reprint sets.

At first I thought this was the same mechanic as Shadow with a different name, but not quite. Creatures with Horsemanship can block another creature with Horsemanship, same thing with shadow. The difference is that creatures with shadow can't block non shadow creatures.
