I like the option to pay Blue for the shadebreathing ability... and that's about all I like. The cost is way too high on this. I guess R&D didn't want to make it overpowered compared to Frozen Shade or something.

Wouldn't be bad to throw in a U/B Necrotic Ooze deck I suppose, but there are a lot of crappy, crappy cards which are surprisingly good when combined with the Ooze.

Okay, it's pretty bad. But yes, it's blue! It's in a loch!

Awesome card! SHE is great for whomping with Blue mana!

1 more than Frozen Shade for a split Blue or Black Firebreathing? NICE!

Yes, in PURE BLACK, Frozen Shade is instantly better, obviously. She's not MEANT to be used in pure-black, now is she? Throw in Blue... new story. Just like every other actually-great card that is a 1-cost more for added color compatibility.

How the heck is the shade ability even remotely blue?

Four mana for a 1/1 guy? Oh wait, and I better have more mana open, so it survives a shock? So like 6 mana, or 7, for a 1/1? No way. Horrible card.

4 mana for a 1/1 that you have to spend mana every turn to keep alive?? No thank you, I have better things to do with my mana!

This is one of the more terrible cards I've ever seen. 2 mana for a pumpable 1/1 without any other abilities would have been common worthy. But 4, when good 4 drops are either 3 power with abilities or 4 power without? Absolutely ridiculous. The absolute only time I could consider playing this would be in a deck that provides benefits to creatures that enter play as a 1/1, and even then I'd rather just play a 1 drop without a little pump effect.

Blue sometimes gets firebreathing? This feels like shapeshifting? Right?

People, who would waste a kill spell on a 4 mana 1/1? If they're going to waste removal on this "terrible card," perhaps its not as bad as you think it is.

I thought it said "Loch Kerrigan" and thought "Cool starcraft refrence", than I reread the name :(

3/5 Stars
