I want to start off by saying that ever since the tournament use of Stoneforge Mystic, Squire has gotten a lot press. Once Stoneforge has become “useless” people will refer to her as a Squire. While this obviously doesn’t matter because cards get nicknamed all the time, for example:
Dark Confidant is usually referred to as “Bob”. Birds of Paradise are simply “BoP”, and I’m not sure if other people call Sphinx of Uthuun, “Fact or Fiction Sphinx” or not, and while that name may be longer, I hate saying “Uthuun”. This term does not work for everyone because Fact or Fiction may be foreign to them.
But why does everyone have to call a creature that has become worthless a Squire? Why not call it a Vodalian Soldier?
