So, uh...
1) A casts Volition Reins on B's Saproling
2) B casts Volition Reins on A's Volition Reins
3) someone uses Simic Guildmage to make A's Volition Reins target B's Volition Reins

Player B now controls two Volition Reins, each of which targets the other, but one of them is owned by player A.

4) ....A casts Brand.
5) ????
6) PROF -- no I have no clue what to do now.

A's Reins have a later timestamp than B's, but I'm not quite sure that's relevant. Confusion rising.

Ah, cyborg laser-eyes elf wizard. We love you. We love you so much.

Alright, play Indestructibility on one of your cards. Now, play a second Indestructibility on the first one. Lastly, use the Simic Guildmage to move the first one to enchant the second one, which is enchanting it in turn.

Simic Guildmage is cheap, accessable in the coolest color combination, and it has low costing activated abilities that are relevant to graft and other blue/green decks. I agree with you Nantuko_Primus, Simic Guildmage is the best of the Ravnica guild mages.

Arguably the best guildmage. Though there are definitely other good ones, this card can make any of your creatures targetable by your graft creature's abilities and can screw with your opponents auras, especially when you use it to move a Faith's Fetters from your Experiment Kraj to your Coiling Oracle.

best guildmage, just one thing we used it for was to move enchantments between 2 Bramble Elemental then its just two mana put two saprolings in play

A neat trick is to enchant an opponent's creature with, say, Followed Footsteps, then transfer it to one of his or her creatures with shroud. Since the guildmage doesn't target, you'lll start copying something you'd normally be unable to.

So much fun, I love using this to enchant my Gossamer Phantasms or other illusions and of course moving shroud around to mess with my opponent. Also use it withPrimal Cocoon to boost my other creatures. I love loopholes.

The best part of this card is not the abilities, or the relevant creature types. It's EYE LASERS!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
