dukkhasatva asked: Why did blue get Inkwell Leviathan? It bugs me that green, being the fatty color, doesn't get the "evasion + shroud" fatty that's good enough to see legacy play. Aren't trample and shroud supposed to be primary green abilities?
Shroud (and now hexproof which has replaced it) is both a blue and green ability . Trample is a primary green ability (secondary in red), but it is something we let all colors have on gigantic creatures, which tend to show up at higher rarities.
Blue’s evasion is much better than green’s so the reason that shroud + trample + evasion shows up in blue is that blue has easier access to trample (on a large creature) than green has access to evasion.
