A card that will end the game very quickly if
it's not dealt with. A 5/5 flyer for 6 already
tends to do that, but throw in the Blaze effect
whenever it attacks and it will kill your
opponent soon. I don't think this is as good as
Bogardan Hellkite (which rotated out with Time
Spiral block), but it might get played in Jund
decks if they become tournament competitive
(although I don't think they will). It could
also see play simply as a finisher for some
random mid-range red deck; it's one of the best
finishers to come along in a while.
In limited, this is great. Wipe out your
opponent's army (or your opponent) while you
swing in the air for 5, what else can you ask
Constructed - 3.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 4
There's a good reason why dragons are a staple
of fantasy literature and gaming: they're big,
aggressive, impressive, and intimidating.
Flameblast Dragon more than lives up to its
race's reputation. It either puts opponents on a
short clock while burning away their defenses,
or puts them on a really short clock. Not as
many as options as Bant Charm, but it's a
dragon, after all - subtlety was never their
strong point. Effectiveness always was (or
for just over 5 years
-Playing MTG for just over 10
Dragons have always drawn their share of hate
and this card will certainly do that. The truth
is, deal with it quick or be hit for 10 the next
turn. Two turns of this and your done. This guy
will always attack. That is what flame breathing
arial assault weapons do. However, in
constructed, 6 mana is a big investment and
getting him out early with tricks does little to
make his second ability great. Limited bomb!!
Nice Dragon. Neat ability. Burn a creature out
of the way as you attack, or burn your opponent
to get the extra damage in for the win. If you
played him from your hand and he stays around to
attack, you should be doing at least 5 damage
with it's ability. Not as exciting as other
Dragons before him for tournament play.
This is a great Dragon for all of those Dragon
lovers out there.
Red can really be deadly in Shards sealed and
draft. But it is slow and there is a good amount
of removal. If he hits play and stays around to
attack, it is game over. Top pick for both hate
drafting and to actually use him.
Overall this Dragon will be the sleeper for this
a great weekend.
Flameblast Dragon Creature - Dragon Flying
Whenever Flameblast Dragon attacks, you may pay
If you do, Flameblast Dragon deals X damage to
target creature or player.
What I love about this card is that alot of
people were saying how this was broken. then
they remembered its basically just firebreathing.
However it actually is alot better than that.
Firstly it can target creatures and secondly
even if they chump their still going to be in
for a whole lot of damage. In limited can you
say bomb? Casual, its a dragon, whats not to
love? However in contructed its just to
expensive for what it does.
