It is never about how to kill something or the good ol' 'dies to removal' argument it's about staying power and what a card can achieve if it's unanswered and if it has a shell where you can protect it. This card snowballs, ramps, demands an answer otherwise your opponent has a bad time... Probably not banworthy yet but very format shaping. It works perfectly well in the UR shells, you got the protection, you got your own removal to keep the monkey connecting turn after turn. The monkey being a 1 drop makes it very difficult to deal with, you need to have an answer on your starting 7 other than Oko/Uro where you have 1 or 2 more turns. Dash makes it even more flexible, if you face a lot of blockers, just keep it in hand and cast it when the time is right.

Definitely one of the chase cards in this set... And very pushed. I'm assuming this will see a ban at some point. Not now though.... Since Wizards wants to make as much money as possible off of this product.
