Is the Serpent trait there just for fluff purposes, or does something actually check for that?

I haven't seen a card that interacts with it.

Possibly just flavor. Possibly leftover from something that didn't make it thru development.


I know I saw a couple of people struggle to get this off them the first couple of times we saw it just for fear it mattered - one of the mixed advantages of unspoiled play.

My bet is that it's forward compatibility and Return to the Forgotten Age may interact with it.
