Questing Beast

Legendary Creature — Beast

Vigilance, deathtouch, haste

Questing Beast can't be blocked by creatures with power 2 or less.

Combat damage that would be dealt by creatures you control can't be prevented.

Whenever Questing Beast deals combat damage to an opponent, it deals that much damage to target planeswalker that player controls.

I dont really know for sure... you can try splitting Questing Beast with Bloodbraid Elf and see which feels better in the slot?

Wow, I like the inspiration for this deck a lot!

I know you haven't played the deck yet but if you ever have a free slot to include another power-house creature with a bunch of keyword abilities, Questing Beast might be helpful!

I like this... I want to suggest Questing Beast but it kinda clashes with bloodbraid.... overall I love it +1

TypicalTimmy has gotten or granted vigilance as far back as 1994 and 1999, with Rabid Wombat and Stamina. It's been getting vigilance regularly since about 2015. haste is a little less common, but still visible also since 2015. Both those abilities are secondary in green, so they'll show up once in a while.

"Extended damage" (not sure what else to call it) has a tiny little precedent in Greatbow Doyen, and Kosei, Penitent Warlord and Hydra Omnivore also exist now, so this might be tertiary in in the future.

Of course, Questing Beast is still a mess, and the "can't be prevented" clause is still out of nowhere. It absolutely would have been fairer and more sensical as Naya or Gruul.

My best guess is that Throne of Eldraine wanted to be a mono-color set, with abilities like Adamant, and like you said, they needed a mythic slot filler.

A good example of a rules bend is Questing Beast.

Green normally doesn't have vigilance, or haste.

Green normally doesn't have restrictions on what can block it.

Green also normally doesn't make combat damage unable to be prevented. What it normally does is either Fog and stop it all, or make things indestructible until end of turn. If you're looking at damage being unable to be prevented, that's really more of a red thing.

And green certainly doesn't do "extra damage".

Questing Beast should have been Naya, or Gruul at the least. But certainly not mono-green.

Maybe it's just because it's fresh in mind, but I could really do without Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer I took a break on MTGO largely because I just got sick of running into samey decks, and Ragavan fixing mana seems like it has a lot to do with it. And he's just the most, does too much, card. The exile ability seems so tacked on and I forget about it sometimes and then there's that feeling kind of like Questing Beast where, oh yeah it does everything it's doing and like two other things too.
