A classic from the original set. A 5/5/flyer with firebreathing for 6 mana is an efficient cost for what you get. The fact that it becomes an instant target for removal spells/effects attests to how simple yet powerful it is. I hope it never leaves the core set.

One of the few big creatures from very early in the game's history that WotC didn't saddle with some ridiculous drawback, and therefore one of the few such creatures that are playable. While it is extremely rare that there would be any reason to run this in Constructed, this remains, as always, an enormous Limited bomb and a huge favourite at casual tables everywhere.

It's sad to see the Shivan's original flavor text replaced just to accomodate some ugly reminder text.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
