I, too, was hoping more for Form of the Dragon/Form of the Dinosaur goodness.

is The exile zone targetable with proliferate
From the Comprehensive Rules (November 20, 2020—Commander Legends):
701.27a To proliferate means to choose any number of permanents and/or players that have a counter, then give each one additional counter of each kind
that permanent or player already has.
It doesn't work, because when she's exiled she is not a permanent.

The utility of making my critters better, making theirs worse just doesn't beat just getting rid of the threat altogether.
At least in this case Essence Scatter doesn't stop planeswalkers, and Negate doesn't stop creatures. So this is more flexible? Close to a hard counter. Doesn't stop them from getting a body, but think of it as a malleable Swan Song for creatures and planeswalkers. Power of more coverage for less mana (in terms of Standard counterspells these days) in exchange for a body. Recent comparisons are Anticognition and No Escape.
Also, since the creature being chosen doesn't say target, I think you don't have to choose a creature until the spell resolves. Doesn't that mean I could use a bird token created by Murmuring Mystic, for instance, created when I cast this spell?

Then I guess the fire can make it a 3/3
0/1 for corpse.
+3/+2 for stench.
Using Stenchskipper for stat hypothesis. Flying, 3/3 for 3B seems reasonable...because its stinky it gets +3/+2.

Most likely to work with party, though I don't know why they didn't just make it both like Robber of the Rich.

Should simply make it non-basic land and reduce the cost by at least 2 colorless, then its something to consider.
They wont give us 2 mana land destruction that doesnt replace the land. It won't happen. They won't even give us Fulminator Mage-type stuff, anymore.

I love Entomb-type effects, even if its the one of two choice. Get either self-recursive threats or two targets if you're holding reanimation. Also, reading that first sentence definitely feels evil in its use of the English language.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Also its another 2 drop cleric for party decks that has a real use.

It's really more similar to Gurzigost, except in some decks in Standard Gurzigost was a beater.

Its basically a drastically better Rotting Regisaur, which was quite a role player in standard at its time.
This has not really any drawback that punishes you in any way.
To get it going turn 2 (or turn 1) might be a bit of a problem in standard , not so in older formats (which then again fight against heavy graveyard hate, that kinda shut this card down quite hard).
So not sure, its a pretty drastic powercreep , but it might face enough hate (without targeting it, just because the graveyard is such a easy to hate zone) that it wont dominate anywhere.
Even the artifact part is really pushed, as it can draw a ton of cards in decks with enough creatures, but then again, the package might not be enough to be huge, but it certainly will see play in standard at least.
The drawbacks are actually very, very different. Sure, "exiling 2 cards" feels like giving up nothing, but it may be hard to have your graveyard filled early enough for you to get this down quickly. And if you can't exile, it dies. Reginald doesn't care if you are hellbent. Also, discarding can sometimes be turned around into a benefit, while exiling from your graveyard may turn off some benefits or ability to use delve or other abilities.
It is strong but I would not call it drastically (or any) better than reggy.
This 100%. I think it's a potentially good card, but Regisaur stays alive even when you have no cards in hand. If the opponent removes your graveyard, Egon becomes an Alliances-style slowtrip. I think it's good, but not Reggie good.

Potential for an effect that says creatures with haste get x. Ie creatures with haste get +1/+0 and can fart rainbows. "We never suspected the barbarians were looting and pillaging to spread joy and rainbows" - Verlander, the rainbow clad.
Or something with a tap ability:
Haste only on your turn means you couldn't tap it on your opponent's turn.
