Fogwalker
 
I actually do like this new skulk keyword very much. I've always enjoyed playing with cheap creatures in colors like blue that aren't known for getting the strongest ones, and as we get more examples of the keyword over time, I think that archetype could become even more of a threat than it is now. It'll probably be a while before we get an Ophidian with skulk (and it'll probably be mythic), but until then, cards like Fogwalker are pretty solid. An evasive creature, an early blocker, and a delaying ploy - and the likelihood of two or more of those at once - are always worth looking at in Skies-style decks.

Fogwalker (8/9)
 
Fogwalker's value is largely in being a small, hard-to-block body that also is harder to kill; being a 1/3 with skulk means that either deathtouch or a triple block is necessary to take it down. That said, 1 damage each turn is a pretty poor clock, and it’s more a supplementary threat than anything noteworthy. (You can pump it after blockers are declared to speed things up.)
 
The ability to keep a creature frozen is reminiscent of Ajani Vengeant and his +1, albeit limited to creatures. It gives Fogwalker a bit of late-game utility in being able to keep a large creature from attacking consecutively (or use its abilities consecutively). Not actually tapping the creature is irksome, but it might be too powerful if it did so.
