Top tier flavor text.

Aww, kitty got demoted from rare.

The flavour is, at least, better than the original :)

­Savannah Lions did appear as a common in Masters 25 before so this isn't unthinkable. In the future, I can see this even happening in a standard set so in this masters-like set this seems especially acceptable.

2/1s for {w} even in Standard have been demoted to uncommon for a while. As sommons in a Standard set they'd still be top-notch, but not unthinkable.

The flavor text reminds me of an old tradition where every set or block had a four-letter flavor text e. g. Ray of Command says "Heel." IIRC.

If Dauntless Bodyguard is an uncommon than this can be a common. Also I'm a firm believer that creatures without rules text should have slightly buffed power or toughness compared to their cost.

They indeed do. It's just a sign of how creatures have crept over the years :)

This was a tier one aggro card, back in Alpha. That's why it was printed at rare
