Steven Cantrell Bolzard Dragon
Type: Creature
Civilization: Fire
Race: Armored Dragon
Mana Cost: Six (6)
Rules Text:
Whenever this creature attacks, choose a card in your opponent's mana zone and put it into his graveyard.
Flavor Text:
When Bolshack awakes in the east, Bolzard roars in the west.
Power: 5000
Rarity: Very Rare
Set: Evo-Crushinators of Doom

Power/Cost: Bolzard Dragon comes with a hefty price tag of six mana. In return you get a decent sized beatstick that can survive a battle with the weakest of the weak all the way up to Illusionary Merfolk. Having such a strong creature on the board can come in handy, but six mana may not be worth it. Your opponent can easily take down Bolzard with blockers (namely Thrash Crawler) and other fatties (Cryptic Totem anyone?). So be careful investing what will probably be an entire turn’s worth of resources just to summon one beast.

Civilization/Race: Fire is of course known for aggression. Many of the cards are focused on quickly and efficiently attacking the opponent before they can fight back. Fire also happens to be home to one of Duel Masters biggest selling points among kids: the dragons. Several of the most expensive and sought-after cards available share their race with Bolzard Dragon. Now unfortunately for serious control players out there, those “noobish” Dragons are about to take on major step towards becoming truly playable. With the release of Set 08 in a few weeks time, Bolzard will jump into the spotlight along with them. Watch out for some upsets at Nationals guys.

Effects: Bolzard Dragon comes attached with one of the nastier effects in the game. Once every turn until your opponent finds a way to stop him, the big guy trashes a single mana. Therefore, the longer you can keep Bolzard alive and kicking the punishment he can dish out. Trust me, that mana your opponent loses can add up very quickly. So what’s the catch? Bolzard Dragon lacks Double breaker for starters, an ability considered standard among creatures costing six or more. He also comes with a built-in bull’s eye your opponent will be targeting. Be wary of Corile, Terror Pit, and the rest. Time to wrap things up....

Limited: 4/5

Fatties are always excellent picks in draft. Bolzard happens to lack Double breaker, but the sweet ability makes up for it.

Constructed: 3.5/5

With major Dragon support just around the corner, look for Bolzard to become very useful soon. He already benefits from Cocco Lupia, which allows for an attack as soon as turn five! You may want to start trading around for a few copies.
