Well, I remember Steven Universe had a character that represented that topic and I’m sure it’s been covered in some other ways where that character wasn’t present in that show too.
Personally, I could never see myself in a polygamous relationship, because I’ve been cheated on before and the idea of adding more people to my current relationship would drive my anxiety up to eleven.
Based on Steven Universe’s representation of the subject I wouldn’t say I felt outraged or turned off by it if I were to look at that aspect alone. And I think I’d be more okay with seeing it in other forms of media as well as kids media if it were handled the same way.
Personally, I think kids are a lot smarter than we’d ever give them credit for and I don’t like the idea of withholding stuff away from them for the sake of their “innocence.” Don’t get me wrong, I would never be up for showing sexual content or senseless violence, but there’s a lot of other topics we leave out that I think should be reconsidered and reevaluated. Having kids be aware of polygamy I think has it’s benefits, because keeping that information away isn’t going to prevent those kids from becoming adults who may end up in polygamous relationships anyways. The least we could do is provide media demonstrating what constitutes a healthy and unhealthy relationship regardless of what the relationship in question that consists of. That way if those kids ultimately end up being in such a relationship as adults they’ll be better equipped to assess for themselves if it’s something truly right for them.
This might be more controversial but I do think kids should also be more aware of the dangers of pedophilia as well. I’m currently in a non-straight relationship and seeing media portray non-straight relationships is sweet, but I feel too much talk about relationships in general can give kids the impression that any relationship has the potential to be okay. Growing up as a kid myself I remember PSA’s about stranger danger and at school needing to sit at a presentation conducted by local law enforcement on the dangers of getting into a stranger’s car as well as other interactions to avoid. Looking back on those now I don’t think they ever went far enough on convincing me and my peers about why you should avoid adult strangers you don’t know. I mean the warnings were played constantly, but whenever it came to the explanation why, it never seemed to me that it carried the same level of urgency that it was repeated as. Darn, the worse thing that will happen is I’ll find out there really is no puppy in the car. Darn the worse thing that will happen is I’ll find out there really were no late Christmas presents with my name on it in this person’s house. As an adult now I more than well recognize the importance of those PSA’s but as a kid it always felt like a frivolous thing adults obsessed about. Of course you can’t tell children flat out they’ll get molested or murdered, but there has to be some way of getting the message to stick than just, the puppies and presents are a lie trick. Kids are smart and they need to know to some extent why some adults would want to pull dumb tricks like that on them, otherwise the severity of the situation is lost on them.

Given Simian Spirit Guide exists and for games 2 & 3 if they’re on the draw they can board in Gemstone Caverns, it’s possible they can run any 1-mana haste effect such as Maximize Velocity, Reckless Charge or Thud for a turn 2 win. Speaking of extra mana, you could play a turn 1 Springleaf Drum tap your Vampire Hexmage to it before sacrificing it and that also would provide you with the extra mana to play a haste effect on turn 2. Let’s not also forget, if the Vampire Hexmage is removed by discard or counter effect the deck can run Claim / Fame for a lethal comeback. With a turn 1 Caverns you can also fit Adventurous Impulse, Oath of Nissa and/or Ancient Stirrings to dig if needed. Keep in mind on your first turn with the Caverns you can play your second land allowing you to also play a turn 1 Sylvan Scrying which can further improve the combo’s consistency. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth isn’t also necessary as you can play a turn 1 Golgari land into an Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise or Gilded Goose which would give the combo better protection against edict effects if your opponent doesn’t have turn 1 removal.
These are things that should be considered regarding this card getting unbanned.

skoobysnackz, What about Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Ash Barrens, Fabled Passage, Prismatic Vista, Armillary Sphere, Bant Panorama, Esper Panorama, Grixis Panorama, Jund Panorama, Grixis Panorama, Blighted Woodland, Burnished Hart, Expedition Map, Myriad Landscape, Renegade Map, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Solemn Simulacrum, Sword of the Animist, Thaumatic Compass Flip, Thawing Glaciers, Traveler's Amulet, Wanderer's Twig, Wayfarer's Bauble, or Wood Elves?
For some of the casual play groups I’ve been in Opposition Agent would really hose their ability to mana-fix and I can’t think of anything more annoying than sitting on removal you could use to take it out, but not having the right mana to cast it.
