Nightmare {5}{B}

Creature — Nightmare Horse

Flying (This creature can’t be blocked except by creatures with flying or reach.)

Nightmare’s power and toughness are each equal to the number of Swamps you control.

The Nightmare arises from its lair in the swamps. As the poisoned land spreads, so does the Nightmare’s rage and terrifying strength.
