The Evolution of Flying Men

Cards in Magic oftentimes are referred to the very first card that carried a specific stat-line and card text. Especially in Limited, where cards may not have any relevant text other than their power and toughness and mana cost, creatures are regularly called Hill Giants, Grizzly Bears, and Craw Wurms. Flying Men is one such case, and we've seen the rise of these creatures in this current Standard format. Because of their prominence, I wanted to take this week's article to discuss and analyze a design that has changed quite a bit over the years.
