Nah, its the protection from homarids.

Directely quoted from FAQTIWCAWCC: (Frequently Asked Questions That If We Didn't Answer Would Cause Chaos)


Turn #1 -- You play Old Fogey.

Turn #2 -- During your untap step before you untap, Old Fogey phases out.

Turn #3 -- During your untap step before you untap, Old Fogey phases in. Cumulative upkeep says, "Hey, pay {1}." (This assumes your abilities have the ability to speak -- mine do). Echo says, "Pay {GG} or sacrifice Old Fogey." And finally fading says "Take off one of my three fading counters."

Turn #4 -- During your untap step before you untap, Old Fogey phases out.

Turn #5 -- During your untap step before you untap, Old Fogey phases in. Cumulative upkeep says, "Hey, pay {2}." Echo says, "I'm good." And fading says "Take off another fading counter. I'm down to one."

Turn #6 -- During your untap step before you untap, Old Fogey phases out.

Turn #7 -- During your untap step before you untap, Old Fogey phases in. Cum... (see all)

pygmy allosaurus used to be a dinosaur...and really, allosaurus rider should be an elf warrior dinosaur...

the magic 2010 rules changed "bands with others", so old fogey should be able to band with them!!

instead he's just lonely by himself...

Protection from Homarids is pure genius.

Also, I'm pretty sure there was some wolf creature that bands with other wolves.

some misconceptions on how phasing works here...

702.23d The phasing event doesn’t actually cause a permanent to change zones or control, even
though it’s treated as though it’s not on the battlefield and not under its controller’s control
while it’s phased out. Zone-change triggers don’t trigger when a permanent phases in or out.
Counters remain on a permanent while it’s phased out. Effects that check a phased-in
permanent’s history won’t treat the phasing event as having caused the permanent to leave or
enter the battlefield or its controller’s control.


so during the upkeep of every turn it's phased in you do remove a fading couner and pay the cumulative upkeep cost

The new phasing rules will no longer make you pay the echo cost every time it phases in anymore then. So, I guess you only pay the echo cost the first time after it enters the battlefield while phased in.

Out of all his abilities, it's got to be the snow-covered plainswalk that really makes this card shine!

And the subtle "Illus. Douglas Schuler"! His name is Douglas Shuler, they misspelled it in the first sets and later corrected it. I think he should have had a common expansion symbol though, or none at all.
