Card of the Day Reviews 

Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno

Today's card of the day is Dromoka, the Eternal which is a five mana Green and White 5/5 with Flying that gives two +1/+1 counters to your lowest toughness creature whenever a dragon attacks.  With multiple dragons this is a very powerful effect that can can be a serious threat with evasive targets dealing additional damage as well as being more difficult to remove.  Even by itself it becomes a 7/7 on the attack then a 9/9 the following turn which is easily a game ending situation. 

Overall this is a very solid card that will be very popular in Commander at least and if Green/White dragons were to somehow become a viable deck this would be a staple.
 
In Limited this is an excellent first pick in Booster that is an efficient 5/5 for five with evasion and powers up your field with every attack.  There is no real drawback aside from locking you into two colors which is mitigated by Green generally being the best for color fixing and acceleration.  In Sealed it of course depends on the pool, but splashing White or Green when using the other is well worth it to allow this to lead any offensive.

Dromoka, the Eternal
 
In hindsight, I probably should have expected a set like Tarkir that focuses on Sarkhan to have new legendary dragons. Shame on me. Dromoka here is certainly eye-catching and, on paper, more than worthy of the legendary creature type and the mana cost. The five-cost slot for green and for white (even for green/white multicolor) is getting pretty crowded, but her support for a major theme in those colors puts her near the top of that list based on synergy. I'm also intrigued by the fact that her ability triggers when any dragon attacks - does this imply more dragons in these colors in the near future?
