flagbearers/unnatural selection- both apocolypse.

the ability stated on the flagbearer cards is not reminder text. it is game text. changing a creature into a flagbeatrer does not give it an ability. it is like saying by changing a creature into a sliver makes it share its own abilities with slivers.
the only way this works is if you have a flagbearer with diplomatic immunity on it is play and change their creature into a flagbearer.  this makes them pick their creature as the only legal target. it actually makes their spell fizzle as their target (your creature) is now illegal. the game text of the real flagbearer is what grants the targeting restrictions. but it will affect other flagbearers in play w/out the ability.
