s. It seems like a strong creature, a flier with a cumulative upkeep that is more of a boon than a cost, but it also costs seven mana. Do I want to have two of the same seven mana creature in my deck? It’s been my experience that with this guy that he usually doesn’t survive long enough to do anything (he’s definite removal bait), so it might be nice to have the back-up. I’m going to try running both, though I’m not convinced that that’s the right call.

I want to play red, and it’s all because of the dragon. Dragons with cool abilities always excite my inner Timmy, and this one is no exception. Besides, as I said about the Squall
