DRY 1337

 

Rollicking Totem seemed pretty outstanding when first seeing it from a booster.  Its potential was too much to pass up and I just couldn’t resist pondering how much excitement and dominance it could bring to a duel.  However dragons already have tons of support so let’s see how well this creature stacks up.

Civilization: Nature

 

Type: Creature

SilentPut a creature that has Dragon in its race from your mana zone into the battle zone.

 

Power: 4000
 

Rollicking Totem definitely starts out solid.  For 5 mana you get a 4000 power creature with a decent ability.  The reason why the 4000 power is so good is because Silent Skill creatures are prone to attacks while they are tapped.  With this much power it will be able to hold its own and can also be useful for counter attacking.

 

As far as the effect we’re in for a treat.  As long as you leave Rollicking Totem tapped at the beginning of each of your turns you’ll be able to summon a dragon from your mana zone for FREE!  For those of you who enjoy swarming with dragons this card is for you.  The only issue with this card is the fact that the mana cost is so high.  We only need 4 mana to start summoning dragons with the help of Soulswap.  Fortunately we can also use Soulswap to have this creature out by turn 3.

 

In my opinion this card works really well with Earth Dragons.  Of course you can also use Fire Dragons but Fire Dragons already have a well-established support system.  In addition, by omitting Fire and going with a different civilization, like Water, you’ll be able to protect this creature with blockers and keep cards in your hand.  This can be especially advantageous because of the combination of drawing and mana rushing.

 

Just keep in mind that this creature is all about free swarming.  If the only thing you want to use it for is to rush dragons then you’re better off skipping the middle man and Soulswapping your own into the battle zone.  For the most part you’ll typically find that your opponent has already dealt with this creature before you can use its abilities.

 

The Good:  Free dragons!  Yay!

 

The Bad:  There is better dragon support out there.

 

The Ugly:  Don’t build a deck solely around this guy because chances are it’ll die before the effect goes off.  Then you’re stuck with too many high mana cards.

 

 

Constructed Rating: 3.5/5 – This creature is very solid but a lot riskier than the other dragon support cards.  The effect is very appealing.

 

Limited Rating: 3/5 – You’ll mainly be attacking with this creature since dragons aren’t the easiest things to get in limted.

 

Please feel free to post your comments, questions, and/or objections on the Message Board and I’ll be more than happy to respond.  Happy dueling!
