Aw man, finally, I find a card to deal with "bands with" abilities. Jesus, I thought my deck made entirely of forests would never make it big.

Obviously worth a green splash in B/U Faerie decks.

I still don't understand what Banding does. We all just assumed in our playgroup that it was just a keyword version of Palace Guard's ability. Instead I now stare at the reminder text under Benalish Hero and rack my brains over the apparent Raging River stapled to every card that has or gains this ability.

Banding being obsolete aside...
The card's ruling is ridiculous. The wording "bands with others" was clearly an attempt to clarify the rules in the same way that "hexproof," "shroud," and "deathtouch" were added over the years. "Bands" and "banding" already imply "with others." The only clarification should have been rules of order. Blockers before damage is dealt, attackers before bands are declared, etc.

Saw this old 2002 WOTC article.

http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/feature/21

"A creature with “bands with other Legends” CAN’T BAND WITH A LEGEND."


I mean .. really!?! That made that ability pretty useless unless you have Leyline of Singularity.
