When I was trying to put together my monoblack aggro deck back in high school, I only had a few choices. One of these I played around with was Bog Imp. Everyone knows Bog Imp.

What a great creature! A 1/1 flyer, for 2 mana. This card was an absolute steal back in the day, especially in a color like black. Yessir, A 1/1 flyer really took you places. One damage a turn put a man on the CLOCK.

Now nostalgia will get you pretty far in EDH. It will get you very far indeed. But it never hurts if your 1/1 flyer has an ability tacked on to it. Today, I add a card that puts Bog Imp to shame.
