xucoalex asked: So I get that green doesn't like flying creatures (reach, damage to fliers only). My question is, why?
It’s not a color pie philosophy thing. Obviously nature has fliers. It’s a game balance thing. In order for evasion to work best, especially things like flying where things with it get to block other things with it, you want to have the ability scale in effectiveness allowing it to be stronger and weaker in certain match-ups.
In other words, Magic works best when each ability excels only in certain color(s). Everyone doing everything makes the color pie meaningless and cuts at the heart of how a trading card game works.
