    Proper typing would probably be Legendary Creature - Pirate Noble

    Well to be clear, this isn't 100% of what I said.
    It's to move it from your sideboard to your hand.

    So 8 mana Yorion is only if you want to transfer it to your hand and then cast it at once.
    What this really is doing is opening up discard as a viable avenue.

    Do you spend the mana early to play Yorion out on turn 5 but risk a cheeky Cabal Therapy? Or like you said wait until the game is already decided before trying to jam his safely from his hidey-hole?

    My question is: is this enough to see the others return from banning?
    Seems nobody was playing Lurrus maindeck besides myself, so I'm especially invested in seeing it come off, but not if it's what MODO was those few weeks.
    Zirda seems a bit more dangerous, the deck going infinite seems well suited to have an extra 3 colorless on hand.

    My thoughts on the change:

    Gyruda - makes the deck more vulnerable to disruption (discard) and slows the deck down (either need 9 mana or get it into your hand the turn before). This makes the deck slightly worse but I don't think takes it out of competitiveness.

    Zirda - the infinite combos are slightly more expensive but its still a consistent and explosive deck. I can see this remaining banned.

    Keruga - These stompy decks were getting buzz from DJ Izma but I feel this change kills them.

    Obosh - This change makes Obosh pointless.

    Jegentha - I don't think this change effects Lands and RUG running this card - it was a late game play anyway. They spend 3 mana when they have nothing else to do and play it the turn after.

    Lurrus - This is the big one - I think you can unban Lurrus now. No more LED into Lurrus, and slows down lurrus a whole turn where paying 3 to do nothing hurts the tempo Lurrus decks thrive on.

    Yorion - The other big one. It definitely hurt Yorion decks but these decks play the long game anyway . . . they can afford to pay 3 one turn and the turn after cast Yorion and draw 4.

    Kaherra - No creature decks that ran this just in case will probably stil ldo so, but those decks were far in between. Tribal decks will also probably continue to run it, but these tribal decks were never competitive.

    Lutri - This change makes Lutri pointless as you can't take advantage of the tempo and even if you were using lutri for the suspend spell shennigans the set up now is too much IMO for Lutri

    Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Some predictions:

    1) I don't think the companions are playable now, due to the pure efficiency of Delver and combo decks.
    2) Lurrus and Zirda won't be unbanned, even if my first statement proves correct.
    3) The metagame will change within the next month or so, if Delver can start taking back a bigger share of the metagame.
    4) Blew-stew (Astrolabe + Oko) will now be Public Enemy #1 again.

    Lutri doesnít care a huge amount, suspend 4 means you have time for 3 land drops, putting Lutri into hand, then untapping as suspend spell comes off. Youíre not actually trying to copy the suspend spell anyways (vs any permission), you want Lutri there to make sure oppos canít fight the suspend spell on the stack.

    Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Someone on reddit brought up that in Yorion decks this rule makes FOW slightly better by giving it another alternative cost:

    It used to be either
    - cast force for 0, exile a blue card, pay 1 life
    - pay 3UU when you need to counter something

    Now it is
    - cast force for 0, exile a blue card, pay 1 life
    - pay 3 in advance, then counter for free, pay 1 life
    - pay 3UU when you need to counter something
