I mean yeah, I agree with you. It was kinda obvious it was going to be banned with that format. I've seen some people trying to argue that because of Companions a sideboard should start existing, even though we know it won't. I'm also a casual/kitchen table player so I wouldn't have any issues with people in my playgroup running it although... yeah you basically -have- to throw it into every single deck with that access, and at that point it can get unfair cost-efficiency wise if it hadn't been banned. I do think it was a mistake not to have it simply banned as companion though, I know they seem to have thought it would get too confusing but the card is completely fair to be played as Commander or in the 99, right?
