Fastbond is unrestricted.
grape shot has storm ability so when they counter it it only counter one of the 20 or more in your storm count
4x Ferocidon + 4x Maurauding Raptor meta incoming. Start planning your counters now, because every deck will have to have a way around them. Jeskai could have the answer with deafening clarion and Teferi Jr.
