I disagree with coyotemoon722. This creature doesn't need protecting to be good.

He's a fantastic removal magnet.
He's a two-drop that, if unanswered, can win you the game.
He lets you commit powerful creatures to the board early without fear of overextending.
And he's a great top-deck late game.

No reasonable opponent will let him get to his ultimate form, obviously, but that your opponent *has* to do something to not die to what started out as a 2/2 for RR is good.

So in the end he's rarely going to be the star of the show. But he's rarely irrelevant.

This is all wrong, it can't learn to fly until it's a Charizard. Next we'll be getting Blue turtles that get Hydro Pump at their 2nd stage. Love this card even if it is a misprint.

Saying it was a misprint was me continuing my joke about Pokemon, I'm in no way actually saying this card was misprinted.

much better card than you all think. Got one at pre release, he wins games if hes allowed to reach level 4, that simple.

I really dig this card, it's probably my favorite from the RoE expansion. It's pretty much a huge fire breathing dragon on an installment payment plan. Pay a little bit up front to put it in play and then as turns progress any spare red mana producing sources left untapped after playing whatever it is you wanted to play that turn can be put towards leveling up Kargan. This works well since they made him so cheap to cast and dirt cheap to level up that pretty much any mostly red or mono red deck will be able to level him up a bit almost every turn with whatever unused mana production sources are left at the end of the turn.

So yeah, I like him. He's won me a few FNM matches already and the only real complaint I could make about him is that his creature type doesn't change from Human Warrior to Dragon as he levels up, so Crucible of Fire or any other dragon buffer does nothing for him. If he had a Dragon creature type he'd be solid gold in my book.

@10Fold: throwing in a Seething Song for an interesting combo, huh?
So you mean...using mana on a card?

That, indeed, is ingenious!

Yeah took me a sec to realize how good this guy is, but he is good. Turn 5 he's basically a 12/8 flying trampler. But come on, you gotta run protection for this guy, which means you have to splash. Which also means you may not have the right mana for your Turn 5 Level 8. This guy's pretty mythic in the fact that once he get's going he's crazy with the damage, but you better have that counterspell or two handy.

Use with Venerated Teacher Automatic 2 level counters to all levelers. Therefore midgame it leaves you a couple mana open to do other things like burn, or LD (if people still do that.)

hes better than figure of destiny...and why does everyone say "doomblade kills it" ..DUH doomblade kills alot of creatures, that doesn't mean the creature isn't good!

I wish I were this guy.

nothing like a turn 5 12/8 flier with trample to make your opponents cry.
