Lu Xun, Scholar General

Horsemanship is a keyword ability.


A creature with horsemanship cannot be blocked except by other creatures with horsemanship. Creatures with horsemanship can block other creatures with or without horsemanship.


Aaron is attacking with a Lu Xun, Scholar General. Ned controls a Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior and a Canyon Minotaur. When Ned goes to block Lu Xun he may only block it with Guan Yu. The Canyon Minotaur cannot block it as it doesn't have horsemanship.


Horsemanship has only appeared in Portal Three Kingdoms. The designers of the set felt flying would be out of place for the theme of the set and introduced horsemanship.
