    ...I'm sorry, he becomes WHAT.


    Holy hell. This is both really awesome and yet really confusing because I have no idea where this card would belong, besides EDH. o_o

    His -3 is REALLY disappointing.

    He's not very good at all. At least for now.

    He's fine. He's kinda like a modal Stormbreath Dragon and Flame Slash. That's alright. Probably will be outclassed by Stormbreath marginally, but he's not far off.

    Why 4 Damage is quite a lot

    I'm struggling to understand the "not very good" part about an indestructible 4/4 flying haste for 5 mana, which is immune to regular board wipes (if we even get any good ones) with the weakness of being a possible attack target in your Courser of Kruphix deck. Yeah, really not seeing the downside on this one. He can even kill things if he has to. Like other Stormbreath Dragons.

    Yeah a 4/4 Flying Haste Indestructible guy for 5, with potential removal options doesn't see all that bad to me Smile

    Yeah, I was wrong in this one. The more I look at him, the better he looks. I expected something more impactant, but this is just as powerful.

    Another thing I noticed was that it's quite clever that they still managed to get the token mythic dragon of each set into Khans, despite dragons being extinct on the plane.

    The main concern of mine is that basically if the +1 is attempted, they have the window to respond with Downfall as it stands going into this block. That's not necessarily a bad thing, of course, I'm just interested at how well it baits/demands that Downfall be used on it.

    And I guess it just gives me more of a reason to pack Devouring Light, if people running red actually decide to use this at 2-3 max.
