Broodmate Dragon
 
There's not much not to like about this card. Not only do you get two dragons for a very reasonable price (especially when you consider how threatening eight flying damage is), the original has a lot of resilience courtesy of its high toughness and of being a black creature. An ideal late-game threat for control and mid-range decks in Standard, and a certified bomb in limited - your opponent might be able to deal with one dragon of this size, but is less likely to be able to deal with two (just watch out for Resounding Silence).

Broodmate Dragon

 

Constructed: Jund type decks will probably not see alot of play. But getting 2 for the price of one is a hell of a deal. Now remember the token is only red.

 

Casual: This is a great Dragon for any Dragon deck. I think I will use one in my Kiki-Jiki deck.

 

Limited: Shards has alot of great rares for sealed and draft. This one is no different. 6 mana is fairly cheap for two 4/4 flyers.

 

Overall another great Dragon from Shards of Alara.

Flying
When Broodmate Dragon comes into play, put a 4/4 red Dragon creature token with flying into play.

4/4

 

Nice card. Play it, beat with it, enough said. The ability to split your force into two creatures does have its benefits, such has being able to break through stalemates for a vital few points or forcing your opponent to waste 2 removal spells on it. In limited its a bomb so grab it if your in Jund or feeling daring and splashing 4 or even 5 colours. In casual its a 2 dragons in 1, whats not to love? Because it generates 2 creatures I think this may be able to find a home in contructed.

 

Constructed: 3/5

Casual: 3.5/5
