@thrallalmighty: To the contrary, Mordant Dragon is much worse. Flameblast smashes through blockers and gets to hit the opponent, and is more mana-efficient when they have no flyers and you just need to win now. In contrast, Mordant is worse than Shivan Dragon if they have even an Ornithopter out.

Probably my favorite dragon, excepting maybe the spectacular Steel Hellkite. Dragons with built-in two for ones make me happy, and Blaze on a stick is fantastic.

"Flameblast dragon and quietus spike would be devastating, either instant kill target blocker, or ping your opponent for 1 damage and it still takes off half their life points. If that x cost is big it reduces their life points and applies the damage, probably ending the game right away"

Quietus Spike only halves life totals off of combat damage.

@Elfie: Mana to play this dragon isn't a problem when you can manage to keep in play one or two Dragonspeaker Shaman. Just add Seething Song and it will get in play pretty soon.

Flameblast is my favorite dragon by far. Just great! 5/5

Very similar to Shivan Dragon, but way cooler. That blaze is much more effective at clearing out blockers than the firebreathing was. I'm kinda sad that the Shivan Dragon has been rendered obsolete, though.

Any dragon with Blaze combined in it is phenomenal by almost any standard.

Flameblast dragon and quietus spike would be devastating, either instant kill target blocker, or ping your opponent for 1 damage and it still takes off half their life points. If that x cost is big it reduces their life points and applies the damage, probably ending the game right away. It's all risky vs. removal, but if it works its almost a definite win. What's really great about flameblast dragon also is that even played normally, it's a great sneak attack card, as you can be losing and be down to 5 life, attack once and drop a huge x cost flameblast to your opponents life points and a lightning bolt for the win. Red also pairs with green in a lot of decks and green produces a lot of mana to throw at that x cost. You have to love that it says target player or creature as well, because then you can choose to kill off a planeswalker.

You get the mana when it untaps the turn after summoning it. Summon it, next turn attack with it and use its ability to kill blockers(even ones bigger than itself depnding on what you put into it) or deal the damage to him or her.

yeah, shivan dragon just got one-upped. 4RR for a 5/5 flying dragon. Where shivan dragon's firebreathing gets stopped by a chump block, or combat trick, destruction spell etc, flameblast can burn out an important blocker, or burn the player even if he gets blocked. very useful.

I use two of these in my speedy burn deck (red, black, green). It's basically my closer if I haven't burned or weenie swarmed my opponent to death first.
