During the Mirage block, I tried to give Magic's dwarves a little flavor. My idea was the dwarves are creatures who wear their emotions on their sleeves. When they experience an emotion, you can tell. As such, I felt the dwarves would constantly be picking fights as they get very easily riled up. This is where the flavor text for Dwarven Berserker came from (“I may be small, but I can kick your butt.”) So not only am I responsible for giving dwarves a little more spice, but I'm also the first person to get the word “butt” onto a Magic card.
