The grand creature type update and this card made MaRo a liar.

So. . . is Banding more of a Raging River kind of deal, or a Master Warcraft kind of absurdity? In the end, will it even matter given that I'm holding Fight to the Death in my hand? My Dauntless Escort will decide.

Bands? I like bands. What instrument do you play?

Great one-drop, but not the best, not even in Alpha, where Savannah Lions held the title of best white one-drop, a title which it held until Isamaru, Hound of Konda, took it over.

Banding, a mechanic that deserved more attention than it got...

She keeps reminding me of Sigourney Weaver XD
Its a nice one drop. Too bad banding is not around anymore.

I'd like to see Banding again with a simplified definition, something like "During the declare blockers step, you decide how combat damage is assigned" along with the rest of the Banding mechanic.

Banding sucks, but THIS is how good Alpha Flavor is: I was Commenting on Every Card Today, when I hit Bad Moon. Seriously cool card :)

Then I hit Bayou. And I was reminded of Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. THEN I decided to songfic tribute to Terror on Bayou. :P This completely derailed my Comment on Every Card project, as I was immediately desiring to go on YouTube and look up crossovers of that song with Everything Halloweeny. :P


there is an Alvin and the Chipmunks version of this song, and I really, really want Magic to go BACK to Innistrad RIGHT. NAOW. And there needs to be a Mystery, Inc. reference. I want to go Trick-or-Treating. The Day Before Easter :P

And that is why Bayou and Bad Moon are the BEST CARDS in Alpha, Ever! XD

@kajillion: Not true! Maro said "What was the first expansion to have a Soldier in it?" Does Fallen Empires have a Soldier? Yes. Does Alpha have a Soldier? Yes. Which of those was the first to have a Soldier? Fallen Empires, because it came out before the Great Creature Types Update.

Your comment would be correct if he'd said something like "Of the expansions which contain Soldiers, which was the first released?"

Banding was a problem from the start. We stopped using her and Timber Wolves just to make games go faster and cut down on arguments. (Mesa Pegasus got to stay for a bit longer, 'cause, hey, flying).
