This isn't that bad of a creature, if only the firebreathing ability was 1 mana, this would have seen more play...

The card isn't absolutely terrible, but I wish it was as powerful and menacing as the ones in The Brothers' War novel. :(

The artwork is awesome and its an O-K card, but I think the rare status is undeserved. It is common in Antiquities. Why's it rare in other sets????

I actually played this back in the days. :P I assumed "a normal 3 mana creatures is 2/2. This is 1/3 and pumpable and can be played with any mana. Man this is great!". Where has powercreep brought us? :(

A pity this is just a construct in matters of creature type, and not a dragon construct.

Back in the day, this was pretty menacing due to colorlessness. Remember, Sol Ring and Mana Vault meant this could come out pretty soon, and the Urzatron (Urza's Tower, Urza's Power Plant, and Urza's Mine) meant he would often be pumped to a pretty nasty size. Blue has always been buddy-buddy with artifacts, and Reconstruction meant that he could come back if killed. Yes, he dies to Lightning Bolt, but you can protect him with counters and other things that give invulnerability or healing as he swings fatally.

this dragon belonged to Mishra when he was the raqi from the fallaji people of the desert... This creature killed several fallaji when it appeared from the sand and the qadir itself included.

This fella was never that good. Had the firebreathing been cheaper, it would have seen some play. Too bad it doesn't count as a Dragon.

Outdone, in similar flavor, by Moltensteel Dragon.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
