They could have worded the reminder text better. This update to human actually means that if you give your creature more creature types (do I hear Conspiracy?) you can reveal those too, right?

Awesome with creatures with Provoke.

Should work well in a good Sigil Captain deck. They're both four drops though, so he'd better be your top choice for a second four drop. Usually hitting the board as a 4/4 or 5/5 that can sometimes tap to ping an opponents creature is just great.
Would be nice if he were 3 cmc though :(

I like how the artist used the smudge tool to fix his mouth for the block.

Reveal those humans from your hand!

Much better now with the human errata. I still think it's a good card in the right deck. even if you only have TWO soldier/humans to reveal, he is still able to ping for 2, as a 3/3 for a cmc of 4! That's actually pretty good; but aqgain, he only works that well in the right deck.

3.5/4; good, but not universally playable.

It's the only human tribal card I could find in all of Magic...wow.

Potentially the best "Archer" around with Cenn's Tactician.

while the errata makes it remain basically 'just about playable' today, back in the day it was such a swingy errata change that it actually warped the Limited environment, going from a 2/2 or 3/3 much of the time to a 6/6 or 7/7 much of the time overnight, because of the many creatures to receive Human as an errata'd type. It was suggested by an old article from the period that it should be reset to only affect Soldiers.

I think if that change had been made, it would still be a 2 or more star card today (not over 2.5), and because it's easy to find a lot of Human-Soldiers, a casual deck could still find him a home, but I don't think it was a bad enough decision to not re-errata it that it grossly negatively impacted Magic's History.

Trivia Nerds might like to know little things like this, though. :)
My Vorthos side doesn't really know whether to Like or Dislike his interaction with Human-Werewolves, and ultimately decides that because there are no White Werewolves, it's odd but ok.... (see all)
