nintendo917 you are right! But they haven't errated anything yet either, currently the only true Dinosaur is Old Fogey.

The level up mechanic was a super neat idea on paper, at least. Playing during the ROE block, I really liked the mechanic...at first. But what really sucked was paying mana to level up your creature (which is a good mana sink, but I digress), only for it to die to Doom Blade. gasp. I know that's a tired argument, however it definitely puts the level up mechanic at a card disadvantage due to all the efficient removal spells amok.

I definitely agree that Monstosity, Embalm, and Eternalize are steps in the right direction. In fact, cards like Stormbreath Dragon are good enough to be played in Modern, unlike most of the 'Levelers.'

In any case, I enjoy reading your articles as an Old Fogey myself!

Ah yes, the Old Fogey werewolves.

Speaking of changed type lines, I just saw that Putrid Warrior has been erratad (?) to be a warrior as well as a zombie soldier - thanks for clearing that up, wizards. "Creature - Zombie Soldier Warrior." A man who goes to work even as a zombie has some real dedication. These Invasion/Apocalypse type lines are hilarious.

In short, Dominaria hype?

Sorry, another banding question.

The defending player has an Old Fogey on the battlefield and five other Game-Trail Changeling dinosaurs on the battlefield, so can block as a band.

If the attacking player has a Brontotherium and Provokes one of the defending player's creatures, can the defending player still block as a band including that creature?

Can Battlefront Krushok be blocked by a band of creatures? If not, I assume a band of creatures can block a creature with Menace like Boggart Brute?

Or if so, what exactly happens if Nacatl War-Pride is blocked by a band? And if not, I assume that the defending player would be unable to block as a band because each creature would have to individually block a different token copy of Nacatl War-Pride?

As one who's an Old Fogey and has been playing since circa 1994, this sounds really cool! But, I really hope they reprint some really solid value cards, especially given the $10 per pack MSRP.

Podma101: Jace won't die. He's their poster boy for Planeswalkers, and they named their proprietary font for their cards after him. They can't get rid of him, because as any Old Fogey can tell you - Blue Wins.

I know about ante, and i'm not even really an Old Fogey, mostly because of picking up a couple Timmerian Fiends from someone because I like old cards.

Yeah Beastlyewok it would be a hoot, unfortunately aside from just being ridiculous, it's also from an Un-set. I do wish Wizards would do another Un-set. I love my Cheatyface, my Old Fogey and my Shoe Tree. /;-)

Zuruck61, it's funny that Beastlyewok would bring up Incoming! right after you suggested Tempting Wurm. On the surface, the Wurm looks like it would be a great card for this deck, but it pushes the game forward at a blistering pace. While I enjoy giving out mana, card draw, and some other sweet effects, allowing everyone to just vomit their entire hand onto to battlefield is a bit too much, plus, with all the card draw I'm giving out, if one other player has a Reliquary Tower out, it's game over. Even if I have Anvil of Bogardan on the field, things just go completely insane, so for that reason, even though I bought a Tempting Wurm for possible inclusion in the deck, I've never added it in.

Thanks for the fun suggestions though, guys.
