Tok-Tok, Volcano Born appears to not be on the list, but maybe he is and I can't find him.

merrowMania - I would accept your claim on technical grounds except we have two different web-pages and it's also really not hard at all to make a webpage or edit it if you know what you're doing.
Both webpages have the exact same oracle text. We already know that a cards oracle text page replaces it's original printing completely. Notice how when you look up either half of the card you get the same result for the oracle text. In short WotC is saying all of those cards you thought were Akki Lavarunner are actually Tok-Tok, Volcano Borns that cost . The entire "flip" concept has been removed from these cards according to their oracle text.
This also doesn't interfere with the Erayo ban. It does interfere with the creatures that turn into Legendary enchantments though for people whose playgroups previously allowed them.

Lets focuson what really matteres:
There are 654 legendary creatues and the list only has 620!
Even when you account for banned commanders it's clear that some have been Neglected!
Akki Lavarunner / Tok-Tok, Volcano Born Check out the Oracle text here. There is absolutely nothing that needed to be changed which can only mean WotC wanted people to refer to this card as an object based on the legendary half.
I know all about the whole "the unflipped card has to be blah blah blah" arguement but again check out the pages. The "Oracle" text is the exact same as the "printed" text only they just use half of the card for the oracle text. They treat the card as if the unflipped portion doesn't exist no matter which half of the card you navigate to in the DB. Furthermore they give the "flipped" part a mana cost so that you can cast it directly.
The cards still suck but hey it's something.
