Boltail is a first for the Fire Civilization. He's
the first creature with a solid attack power of
9000. Sure there's Ucarn, but Ucarn isn't very good.
Losing two mana is very bad. If you need a way to
deal with big creatures, and you don't have removal
like Terror Pit or Natural Snare then you need a big
creature of your own. Boltail suits this purpose for
the fire civilization. Of course the Fire
Civilization rushes mostly so this card would
probably only see play in a Light/Fire deck that
lacked Gran Gure, or Ladia Bale. Why would a
Light/Fire deck not have Gran Gure or Ladia Bale?
Because you might just want to make some room for
other Light cards, and rely on your Fire monster to
be your attacker when you "tap, and kill". Boltail
isn't the greatest of creatures but I'm sure he has
his uses. Especially in Fire/Light.
Here is the
review. Chips didn't want to do this one.
Hey everyone! Fish here
with a review of Boltail Dragon. It seems that every
set they'll have a new Bol-something Dragon. Anyway,
What we have here is vanilla. Another powerful
Double Breaker Rare. It's a nice, even power for
fire, but with creature power constantly rising,
this card won't be as good as it's 1st set brother.
Fire is rush. You won't want to have 7 mana in a
game, but if you do, Boltail Dragon is a solid
attacker that might get you out of a few tight
spots. I give it a 3 out of 5. (X-Play reference)
Constructed: 3/5 Very
Limited: 3/5 See
above with less removal.
