Thanks man!

Yeah i've already changed the edicts this morning but i forgot to update here.

I found Shield Spheres really useful since my Red deck friend runs 4xVexing Devil, 4xBall Lightning, 2xBladetusk Boar and Sword of Feast and Famine, so have a 0 drop 0/6 can help me save removals for the (not so much) later big flyers like Thundermaw Hellkite.

Also there's none other me that plays Black, so Doom Blades are prettu much ok.

I've got 2 Dark Confidant, but isn't Necropotence overall better? Surely i won a lot with it, but i've not yet tried Bob!

Bladetusk Boar's Journey into Nyx art is up and running, swell! But the issue with Devil's Playground seems unchanged on this end.

So, the blocker has to be a multicolor creature with, at minimum, black and at least one of the attacker's colors. In the examples, Stromkirk Captain could block the Bladetusk Boar, and Mardu Roughrider and Spike Jester can block the Sunhome Enforcer. An artifact creature of any color could block either of them.

Let's say A has a Bladetusk Boar enchanted with Fear. A attacks B, who has Child of Night, Stromkirk Captain, and Crossway Vampire able to block. Since the Boar essentially reads, "This creature can't be blocked except by red creatures or artifact creatures. This creature can't be blocked except by black creatures or artifact creatures.", which of B's creatures could block it?

In a different situation, A has Sunhome Enforcer nattily sporting an Executioner's Hood and enchanted with Fear. B has Mardu Roughrider, Spike Jester, Weapons Trainer, and Reassembling Skeleton. If A attacks, which of B's creatures could block?

Basically, how do fear and intimidate work when a non-black creature has both? Can a mono-black creature block, can a creature that shares a color with the attacker block, or does the blocker have to both be black and share a color? (Artifact creatures can block in all cases.)

Our final pack was Journey into Nyx, and it was kind of an underpowered way to wrap up our Advent calendar.

Bladetusk Boar was a perfectly playable common, along with Aerial Formation, Rise of Eagles, and Supply-Line Cranes. We were liked Magma Spray as a card, but especially for the art. Any of them would have made a decent Pick 1, but And we ended up a little split, between the Eagles and Sightless Brawler.

We were a little surprised to see our rare:


Merry Christmas and thanks so much to everyone who read along with our Advent calendar! See you next year! ;-)
