The problem with defining this format by what is "fun" is that everyone seems to define fun as what they don't lose to. If you keep losing to easily answered cards, that means you should improve your deck. If you don't want to improve your deck, then you should come to peace with the idea that you are going to lose because you chose to not interact with better strategies.
the art is sweet, the card is relevant to standard in a few decks, but I believe this will be a standard staple throughout the next few core sets, so I wouldnt minda getting a few of these just to pimp a standard deck using them in the future
I'm pretty sure they also give the same art description to the FNM promo artist as the original. The other FNM promos I've seen mostly (all?) have artwork very similar to the original.

Another date misprint, it says 1/12 FNM in stead of 1/13 FNM
come on Wizards, you have one date to change each year ....
There is NO misprint here. The FNM promos are always the number of the current month (January = 1)/the number of months in a year (12). Ergo, 1/12 is exactly correct.
Example: Everflowing Chalice as you can see the card number is still 1/12 despite this being the January 2011 FNM promo. You'll notice after the card number the text, "F11," which indicated the year of print. Beginning in 2012, however, Wizards scrapped the year of print, and now, the promos just state "FNM".
Surprised people expected a non-Standard card. Since Constructed FNMs are almost all Standard (and will continue to be even after Modern is sanctionable), it makes sense to have mostly Standard cards, and I doubt they'd do runner non-Standard (remember Gitaxian Probe this month).
