Hello and welcome to the last day of Wizard Week. Today, we'll be discussing what Wizards don't usually do, using this card as an example: Let's start with color. You get Blue wizards, obviously, and black wizards. You get some red wizards, most notably Prodigal Pyromancer. You get some white wizards and few green wizards. You've got 16 green wizards (not counting multicolor), 41 white wizards, 31 red wizards, 53 black wizards and 216 blue wizards. Yep. Green doesn't get wizards. In terms of magic, they get shamans and druids.
Here's another thing wizards don't generally do: Aggro. At least, wizards don't generally do aggro on their own. And if they do, they're not generally getting blocked, so they don't have trample. You've got flying wizards and unblockable wizards, but you don't get big tramply wizards. The biggest wizard there is is...well, the biggest size is 5/5. And no trample. So this girl is 1/1 below the largest wizards and she has trample.
So, to sum up, her type line, picture and name all say wizard, but everything else on her says Warrior.
And now, Empathy. It's a psudeo ability, like threshold. It doesn't have a standardized text, only a standardized form. They're fun. It's sort of like Kinship, only more permanent. Vampire Nocturnus could've had Empathy. But then he probably would've been less useful.
So, this is the last day of Wizard Week. Gotta say, it was a real gas. I look forward to seeing you guys again. Unfortunately, I'm going on hiatus until August 8, due to the fact that I have to go into hiding. So, see you all then!
