Not too bad at all for limited. It's no bomb by any means, but it's an evasive creature at the common level, which is very handy in limited. It's rear end is nice too, being able to defend against a variety of other fliers, often killing them in the process.

I think the main thing to remember is that it's COMMON. It's not supposed to come out on top against a a similarly costed uncommon or rare flier like Conundrum Sphinx or Howling Banshee. The fact that it can defend against the banshee shows it's pretty decent (in limited) for a common. Sure, Augury Owl may do almost as much damage and come with Scry, but it dies to a myriad of creatures and weak removal, whereas Azure Drake needs something more significant.

This is one of the best limited creatures. It blocks and kills almost all the common fliers and can get in for two on its own.

Though White has stolen Snapping Drake in the form of As.sault Griffin, this is still quite a good flier in limited. It doesn't get the beats in as well, but it doesn't die to Lightning Bolt either. It even wins in a fight with As.sault Griffin. I like it.

Well, better than Giant Spider till the Green Winds kick up at least.

While I prefer the Legends version artwork, I accept that it makes the drake look FAR too powerful.

This is one of the most beautifully drawn cards I own, and it's not that bad of a card, if a little expensive, either!

Oh, flying Giant Spider, how I would like to first pick you again...

If you go to the French version of this card, you get Multiverse ID 222222. Not very relevant, but I found it mildly amusing.
