Quiz time! Let's look at some developer notes and try to figure out what Gatecrash card they're talking about. If you need a hint, select the text next to the word "Hint!"

DH: Did the more complicated but hopefully very flavorful change to its unblockability. Spy vs Spy!
TML: This is hilarious.
DH: 3HH to 2HH
ZH: Highly support this change.
DH: 2HH 2/3 to 1HH 2/2.

Hint: Dimir

Mago: Callback to RAV Viashino Slasher. Gives common blue a 2-drop, and plays nicely with +1/+1 counter-granting cards.

Hint: Unguilded

GSV: Making him a 1/2 gives Johnny players a really interesting build around that maybe has fringe constructed playability.
DH: Isn't this more appealing to Johnny as a 1/1? Also, not sure we want it to be 'easy' to make this start going off.
GTH: I believe it is more appealing as a 1/1. Cool card.

Hint: Orzhov

EVL: Hello Birdy!

Hint: Simic
