This card does some cute things with (an opponent's) Standstill in play.

@Ten-Ten Walking Ballista is good, but not THAT good. We are already weak enough to Null Rod, and it requires too much mana to be useful. Also, I've never once thought to myself, "This deck really wants a Xantid Swarm."

@Serracollector While Pyro is strictly better than REB, I prefer to play my Summer Magic REB (gotta be a baller). It hasn't cost me any games yet, so we'll keep doing that. I don't like Wear//Tear because I don't want to play red sideboard cards. If I did, I would be playing By Force. That being said, Fragmentize is getting cut anyway for 3rd EE or Moat. I have in fact eschewed Brainstorm for another Planeswalker.

Gush Mentor is exactly the reason that Bomberman was "bad," and why I quit Vintage for a year. Since the restriction, I have cashed 3 of 3 tournaments with the exact same decklist from a year ago (adding Walking Ballista). U/w/r is the place to be, not any of those other things.
