Official Rulings for Rapid Hybridization

1/24/2013 : If the creature is an illegal target when Rapid Hybridization tries to resolve, it will be countered and none of its effects will happen. No Frog Lizard token will be created.

7/1/2013 : If Rapid Hybridization resolves and the creature isn't destroyed (perhaps because it has indestructible), its controller will still get the Frog Lizard token.

I don't think giving the enemy a vanilla 3/3 is sufficient to counterbalance a one mana blue kill instant with no regen. I also dont think that having to kill a memnite is enough to justify a turn one 3/3.

Wizards apparently disagrees with me on both counts.

This is basically a cheaper blue version of Beast Within. It will probably have a spot in modern since Beast Within sees play there. Also, it's better to give them that 3/3 token if you can destroy a Griselbrand or something as powerful.
