Mist-Cloaked Herald Discussion

Mist-Cloaked Herald is there but missing its art. It appears as a black entry when viewing it on a decklist and when playtesting.
Additionally, an incorrect entry exists called Mist-Cloak Herald (which does have the art).

I understand. I thing this for a competitve deck:

I have two questions regarding attacking/blocking and some abilities. First question- If I have a, say Mist-Cloaked Herald, on the battlefield but due to some ability it gains flying, can it be blocked by flyers or creatures with reach? Second Question- If I have a creature under my control with Flying, Shadow, and Horsemanship, can my opponent block it with a Shu General or do they need to block my creature with one of their own with Flying, Shadow, and Horsemanship?

So here's the thing in standard creature decks have to be really low CMC cost and have as much value as possible. So the goal is the pack as 1,2, and 3 drops that you can in the deck that have as much value as possible. So Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, Silvergill Adept, Kumena's Speaker, Blossoming Defense, and Mist-Cloaked Herald are all allstars in this deck because of that.
Anything that has for CMC or higher should greatly impact the game and should be few and far between, Tempest color is a win Con in this deck which is why I always suggest running at least one or two of it. However the oracle and Harold are just too expensive for what they do, especially when you play either of them and it's immediately answered with either a kill spell or counterspell. That means you've wasted your turn for on casting a creature that is a "win more" card and destroys your tempo.
Tempo in a creature deck is paramount, it's why control decks hurt creature decks so much.

here's the thing you are stuck in between two strategies, that do not work together. Either you commit to milling someone in which case you have have 24 dead cards in your deck. If you want to commit to the Merfolk tribal side of things, then you have 7 dead cards.
If you are committing to mill here are some card suggestions
- 3 Fleet Swallower
- 4 Mist-Cloaked Herald
- 3 Siren Stormtamer
- 4 Ipnu Rivulet
- 3 Fraying Sanity
- 3 Slither Blade
- 3 Curious Obsession
Then cut all the merfolk and build straight control, you could play around with making it U/W Control/Mill, but either way you need to be playing control with some mill.

Thanks for the input! The reason I'm using the Kumena's Speakers over Mist-Cloaked Herald is that I found myself needing a beefier blocker in the early game. Also, Heroic Intervention is a good recommendation but a bit pricey for me. I decided to throw in a few Blinding Fog as a more affordable alternative.
