Flavorful to the core, gamebreaking when used in the right deck, a deck-enabler in essence, this card has everything you want from a card.

Don't forget that Dragonstorm was one of the best deck during Time Spiral-legal Standard, powered by mana-gainers like Rite of Flame, Seething Song and Lotus Bloom, cheap library manipulation ala Telling Time (love this card!), Sleight of Hand, and Mishra's Bauble, and dirty tricks like Gigadrowse. It was really one hell of a deck!

@darkfury: I'm sorry to say, but it says put into play, and not cast. Therefore, you would only get a total of 11 dragons (sad, I know), and you could only grab 4 Bogardan Hellkites, 4 Kokusho, the Evening Stars, 3 Broodmate Dragons, and a partridge in a pear tree, thereby dealing 40 damage to an opponent, getting 11 dragons out, and, just for kicks, throwing a tree at them. Hell, with the pounding they'd get, they might not even notice the pretty little bird. Ungrateful bastards.

Aaron’s Random Card Comment of the Day #12, 10/12/10

Twelve days into Random Card Comments, and the closest I’ve come to a top-tier constructed card was Merfolk of the Pearl Trident… that is, until this little number.

The first time Dragonstorm appeared was in the Scourge set, which it essentially epitomized all by itself. After all, the two big talking points of that set were Dragons and the storm mechanic, and this card neatly combines the two. (It actually epitomizes its designer, Brian Tinsman, as well. Brian is a fan of boundary-pushing mechanics and giant monsters.) When considering which storm card to reprint in the timeshifted set of Time Spiral, Dragonstorm was the natural choice, both because it was such a poster child for Scourge and because it was one of the few storm cards that hadn’t been broken in half yet. A few good “rituals” and one Bogardan Hellkite later (also a Tinsman design), and what do ... (see all)

Play this with Artificial Evolution. Replace 'Dragon' with 'Leviathan'.

Oh yes...

oh god, how on earth are you going to have 9 mana and still have enough mana to cast a whole bunch of spells to get the storm to work? If you use this card, you deck will be based on it for sure, but where do you balance between your dragons and your cheep spells and your mana axel?

Rebound will trigger storm. For instance, World at War's rebound will give you a storm trigger. Pretty slick.

@bijart_dauth

You pretty much want to worry about playing mana ramp spells to get this out early if you want to benefit from the storm spell. Best I can come up with (And only on a lucky god hand):

Turn 1:
Mountain, Tap for {r}
Rite of Flame, {r}{r} floating
Rite of Flame, {r}{r}{r}{r}{r} floating
Seething Song, {r}{r}{r}{r}{r}{r}{r} floating
Seething Song, {r}{r}{r}{r}{r}{r}{r}{r}{r} floating
Dragonstorm, find 5 dragons.

@ToAsTy42o,
There are plenty of red spells that give your more red mana as you cast them. Most obvious would be Seething Song. Two of those will give you all mana you need and pump storm counter. Now, if you just happen to have a hand of Dragonstorm, two Songs, Mountain, Infernal Plunge and Memnite/Ornithopter, that is first turn win.
Dragonstorm is horrifyingly fast if deck is built around it.

i am CLEARLY not a johnny, but jesus christ, i don't see HOW anyone could cast this with more than 1 or 2 storm for 9 cmc.
"... and finally, i cast Dragon Storm, after drawing and casting 23 other cards for no mana."

if that happens, then they earned my respect. layered in hate. a hateful respect.

First I thought, "what's the point of Storm on this card? You're never gonna have enough mana to cast anything before it..."

And then it hit me, wait, mana-producing spells like Rite of Flame or Pyretic Ritual count for it... If you base your deck around it, you'll probably be playing 2-3 spells just to be able to cast it, that's an immediate 3-4 dragons on the battlefield. Not too shabby.

DarthParallax,

Geosurge is useless for dragonstorm. It can only be used to pay for creature or artifact spells, neither of which is DS.

While everyone wants to spam as many of these as possible, a single extra copy is usually enough to end the game. Even in EDH. Karrthus and Urabrask give approving nods.
