Or more precisely, what's the deal with black in 7th?! <sighs> Off the top of mah head, lessee ... Corrupt. Nightmare. Megrim. Err... Hmmm. I'm getting vague here. <laughs> Point number one. WoTC seems to be pushing mono on black players ... in a current environment which loathes mono (that goes for y'all Skies and Rebels out there). Eh? Point number two. Black got shafted. Again. Let's do a small rundown of the fatties each color has... Green has Thornie and Verdie. Kinda like Bert and Ernie... White has the queen of skies, Serra. Red has the king of the skies, Shivvy lizard. Blue has the court jester, Fat Moti. Black has ... Bellowing Fiend? Nightmare? Fallen Angel? Abyssal <shudder> Horror? Oh, wait. We've got the East and West Paladins. <sighs> At least WoTC had the grace to bring back Crypt Rats. Once Mercadian Block rotates out, we'll be left without even Dark Ritual. Black got the really short end of stick ... again. Sad isn't it?
