Just received my Leo Sunshadow, Roaring Rose expansion deck and it has just one Glow Finch card in the deck. His Phoenixborn ability states:

Summon Glow Finch: Place a Glow Finch conjuration into your battlefield.

Why does this expansion just come with one Glow Finch? That is very restrictive on his Phoenixborn ability whereas other Phoenixborn can use their special ability every round but Leo has to wait until his Glow Finch is killed until using that ability again? So he could go multiple rounds without being able to use his ability while other phoenixborn can use theirs every round.

Restrictions are there for pure balancing reasons. Being able to summon two Glow Finches (a conjuration with 4 abilities for one basic die!!) would be extremely overpowered. It's quite strong even as it is now.
Edit: not to mention, it is a side action! Hope this helps.

And, just to be clear, having another copy of the card would not allow you to summon two Glow Finches. The little number 1 in the lower left corner means you are limited to one Glow Finch.

Play a game against someone who knows how to use the Finch. Then you will know the horror!

I figure the OP's question is genuine, but how great would a 'Poor Leo is disadvantaged' troll post be?

Yeah, Leo can look after himself just fine with just one Glow Finch. Two Finches would trigger more than a couple table-flips, I think.
