I have no qualms with Felidar Guardian being banned. CopyCat was a degenerate combo that led to Standard being essentially a two-deck format, since Mardu Vehicles was the only deck that could really hope to compete with it. My issue with the ban is the timing. Why exactly was it not banned on Monday, or even back in March? It was obviously a problem from the beginning, and yet Wizards failed to take action until people spoke out. In particular, delaying the ban by a couple days screws over people who saw that Guardian wasn't banned on Monday and decided to go in on the deck, figuring they would get seven weeks with it at the very least.
It was a good move, but the timing couldn't have been worse.

Search your library for up to three basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. Take an extra turn after this one.

Target player reveals their hand. You choose a creature card from it. That player discards that card.
Injury deals damage to target creature equal to the number of creature cards in all graveyards.
Fuse (You may cast one or both halves of this card from your hand.)

Quote from dox »Why does Chandra need to hook up with anyone?
See, this is what I was thinking. Why is there no "none of the above" option?
Mar 5, 2016When I saw this, the first three words out of my mouth were "what the hell". Serra Angel, except with literally FIVE separate pieces of upside. This is what 5 mana gets you nowadays.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Not that I'm complaining, of course. I'm loving every bit of this card.
Feb 1, 2016Yes... but only if you have a Teferi, Temporal Archmage emblem. You can't activate Chandra's ability (or for that matter any loyalty ability) in response to anything, since those abilities only work at sorcery speed.Posted in: Magic Rulings Archives
Dec 30, 2015Just remember that people laughed at Wingmate Roc. Granted, I don't think Linvala will be quite as good, given that her conditions aren't as easily met and she's more expensive, but don't be so quick to count her out.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Griselbrand Unbound 3BBB
Legendary Creature — Demon (M)
Flying, trample, menace
You may cast Griselbrand Unbound from exile, but not from anywhere else.
If Griselbrand Unbound would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal it and shuffle it into your library instead.
If Griselbrand Unbound would enter the battlefield from anywhere other than by being cast, reveal it and shuffle it into your library instead.
