Chrisrawr, you're wrong, it doesn't work like that. The blackguard gives the tokens a counter as they come into play (it has a static ability that affects coming into play), then when the sigil captain checks the tokens' P/T it's a 2/2 and so the captain's ability doesn't trigger (because it has a triggered ability that doesn't activate until something is already in play.

Two sigil captains don't even stack, because they have a conditional IF clause that is rechecked on ability resolution. the first would make it a 3/3 and the other fizzles.

Come on people, @WhiteWizard42 is correct. Oona's Blackguard sets up a replacement effect that gives the creature a +1/+! counter as it enters the battlefield. Therefore, if it's a 1/1, it enters as a 2/2 due to the counters. Sigil Captain's ability doesn't trigger either, as it has an intervening if clause and checks upon triggering and upon resolution. So when a Rogue enters the battlefield, Sigil Captain doesn't trigger, and even if it didn't get the counter (if there's no Blackguard), then only one Sigil Captain's ability would resolve anyway.

One of the best things about this guard is it's random interactions with other +1/+1 counter cards. Festercreep, Cannibalize, Bloodhall Ooze..

anything with a +1/+1 counter gets to cause discarding, which can be an interesting development for an unsuspecting opponent.

I like how it helps both Bloodrush and Unleash.

In particular, FEAR THE Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch MIND INQUISITION!

Named for Oona Queen of the Fae, it's not surprizing this combos quite well with the Fairy Queen herself. This gal turns the chump fairies Ooma mass-produces into serious threats.

I have 4 of these in my blue/black rogue deck and they're so fun to play with. It makes rogues pathetic toughness of 1 higher so they survive more. Combined with notorious throng i have an army of atleast 2/2 fliers and the opponent is probably going to have to discard their whole hand.
