Whoa. Suddenly new voltron ideas are brewing for me... :D

I'm liking that between this one and Licia, Sanguine Tribune they seem to be going for a voltron option in the Vampire deck. I'd be really interested to try that out. Red-White decks would have access to +4/+4 Haste Indestructible if they also include Bastion Protector, which makes me kinda keen to put these together with Bruse Tarl and Akiri, Line-Slinger or other potential Voltron commanders in red-white-(something else).

Nahh, go wide. Tell your friends to play their partner commander decks and then play your gain control deck. ;)

Can't understand people (elsewhere) complaining at a 4/4 flier for 4 that grants bonuses. It's essentially 6 power for 2RR. It's in a solid tribe but not obligated to play in that tribe to function, there's no downside here.

Another very good card from this set.

I agree, it's a solid card. Maybe people just don't think 4/4 flying for 4 is good anymore.

MaRo has talked about this sort of thing on his Tumblr before (ironically, about putting "Partner" on Standard legal legendary creatures). People want to use all the text on a card. As a hypothetical example, people will think:

Undercosted Beater 1GG
Creature - Bear
When ~ enters the battlefield, if you control a Wolf, destroy target Fairy
5/4

Is somehow worse than

Undercosted Beater 1GG
Creature - Bear
5/4

It's a very odd (but independently confirmed) psychological trait. The Commander text - although pure upside - makes this card worse when people evaluate it
