Teeka's Dragon is a VERY popular card with casual players. We have a difficult time keeping it in stock. It costs a lot, but when in play can be really difficult to deal with if your opponent isn't playing artifact removal.

In limited, you play it. First pick!

Casual Constructed: 4
Limited: 4.5
Current Price:
$7.50

A nice fattie to end the week. You can't chump block this guy, as it has trample, and rampage makes it get huge if multiple blockers are assigned to it. It's also an artifact, which can both work for it (no colored mana means you can get it out faster) and against it (a higher level of Naturalizes and Disenchants will be popping up in group games, after Mirrodin came out).
 
Still, I'll apply the same caveat as yesterday: Not for serious duels, but a heck of a lot of fun in group games.
 
Consturcted (serious): 1.75
Counstructed (casual): 3.75

    A big silly dragon. Its huge, but its not at the same time. Flying + rampage is alot of evasion, but its still just too much mana for constructed. Plus its bad in constructed, PERIOD.
 
    In limited its a huge flying unstoppable beast, I'd take this as fast as I could! Plus it has great kiddie trade value!
 
Constructed: 1
Limited: 4.5-4.0

Teeka's Dragon has a whole host of abilities. Generally, Trample + Rampage is a good bargin especially with rampage 4. On the other hand, Flying and Rampage just don't mix well. Add this to the fact that you are laying out 9 mana and I have to say no.

Constructed - You should win the game with 9 mana not get a medicore creature - 2.00

Limited - Flying is good and it is colorless - 3.75

WOW!!!  I mean wow as in.."WOW..I can read this card!!!", although, wow as in what a cool card is pretty close.
 
Let me start by saying, I would love to see this card in the current standard.  9 colourless is so very easy to get these days.  Also, you never see flying and trample together anymore. 
 
How yummy would this be with a lure on it?  Unfortunetly, the flying becomes a liability in that scenario.
 
Constructed Rating - 3 (creatures always let you down in constructed)
Limited Rating - 4.5 (this is a real bomb.  Anything with trample should be scooped up ASAP, and considering it can only be safely blocked by a 5/5 or more...)
Understandable Card Rating - 5 (best one this week)

Now this is a dragon. Rampage 4!! Crazy fun. But yeah, its not that great of
an ability. Not much to say about this card, its just awsome. Might be neat
to put stick a Lure on the dragon, make him really big from all the
creatures that blocked him, and if your opponent is'nt dead from that, sac
him to a Bloodshot Cyclops. Crazy.
