Is there anything that makes Changeling tokens? Cause this would affect them...

Smurf tokens for Gargamel. Awesome.

I think this is a pretty good card when used as fodder for your Fallen Angel or your Nantuko Husk.

I run him in my Mono-black deck with Undertaker, Xathrid Demon, and a bunch of nasty things with madness.

Serf tokens are not the best thing to sac for Xathrid if you're trying to do damage with him, but they are good for taking the brunt when you don't want to sac anything else.

Because, having them be creature type Serf fits the flavor of the card that puts them into play, and other creatures that put tokens into play that are specific to those cards weren't changed either, so it's doubtfully not a case of being overlooked but intentional.

I'd like to thank Mode for being as nerdy as I am.

The "Serf" type is kind of awkward, but if they were to update it I'm not sure "Minion" would be the best choice. Minion tokens are 1/1 or X/X; there's no precedent there for 0/1. Minion as a non-token type is used for some powerful individuals, such as Braids and Chainer, and even Rag Man is clearly more capable than a mere 0/1 townsperson. There's the problem, I'm guessing, and the real reason they still haven't updated the type: 0/1 isn't used for anything that really makes sense (unless they want to use the serfs' livestock in the form of Goat tokens :P), and Minion doesn't seem all that close a fit flavor-wise. Likewise, Human tokens (which are probably closer in flavor) are 1/1.

If they made this make 0/1 Minion tokens, they'd be adding a third p/t standard for an already-inconsistent token. I'd rather have seen them just embrace the "serf" type and run out a set that where ability-less 0/1's could be utilized (via sac, etc...) by several cards. Unfortunately, Innistrad ... (see all)

I'm not that happy about the current orace which didn't erase this weird Serf subtype despite the Grand Creature Type Update.
They should have proceeded with them as they did with the Wireflies:
Change them to Minion tokens named Serf.
