Dear Doug Beyer,
Regarding your article "Jund's One Rule":

I have been looking forward to the Conflux release for two reasons: Bloodhall Ooze and Gluttonous Slime. I have a nigh disturbing relationship with every ooze yet released, but am plagued with one question: will there ever be a white or blue ooze? I have wracked my brain thinking of ways for this to be true to flavor, and cannot think of anything that wouldn't be better suited by a shapeshifter or licid. There is an aching hole in my gooey, ooze-infested heart, and its name is/will be Ooze Control. Do you think the flavors will ever be resolved?
