burn1nmylight said: Why does blue get Hexproof? Shroud was largely a green ability(blue did get small doses) and you've stated several times that blue has too large a slice of the color pie already. It was even called "Troll Shroud" casually.

While blue has a lot of spell space designwise, it’s actually the color that has the most trouble with creature keywords. Hexproof (and shroud before it) exists in blue because we’re desperate for creature keyword abilities that make color pie sense in blue.
