Ok, let's come at this from another angle. Would banning chainwhirler, by itself, significantly hinder them?

Ended up buying into standard. I guess as long as the cards come in by then, I’ll be going to my first FNM in like 5 years this week.

Absolutely - It kills Llanowar Elves, Siphoners, Bomat Couriers, Rekindling Phoenix tokens, Toolcraft Exemplars, Champion of Wits as the big main targets (plus random tokens, Angel of Invention, Earthshaker Khenra no longer exists for this reason...), it crews Heart of Kiran by itself on turn 3 which is a big deal and then it's also a 3/3 first strike for 3.

Chainwhirler is big game, as long as people are playing X/1s. And nearly everyone is.

I guess this is what I get for playing a deck with no creatures < 3 toughness.
