This is actually extremely un-intuitive.
I control Blind Zealot and Viseling. The 4color atraxa deck controls consecrated sphinx and Eastern Paladin. A third friend playing Knight Tribal controls dauthi mercenary and Northern Paladin. The fourth player controls Mercenary Informer and Spiteful Bully. I cast kindred dominance naming "phyrexian".
Can you tell me what dies without looking at the list?
That's a sorcery that's done in one. What if I cast Coat of Arms? Can you easily tell what gets boosted?
This is a change that could have massive impact, and I'm curious as to why they would do this.
For the black paladins: They were suposed to be phyrexians from the start, and as of now they will create/cause the same type of confusion with their race type:
Before getting the phyrexian type the black paladins were erated to be Zombies (you can make the same argument with zombie tribal cards and their human looking arts) . And it may make sense within their Urza's Saga art (8th too) (Eastern Paladin) but it makes absolute no sense on 7th edition (Eastern Paladin).
(Western Paladin , Western Paladin)
(Corrupt, Duress, grapeshot catapult, infernal contract) (at least as phyrexians both their art fit for the new type)
And yeah Eratas are for that, if you don't have the most recent printing after a erata you should know about it or be ok playing it wrong, just look at the amount of RL cards that have diferent text from their most recent erata.
