Having other people to help you kill that one player is so satisfying. Fun card.

Reminds me of Flailing Manticore, except this card is a tad bit better. Even without the join forces mechanic, a 5/5 flying trampling dragon with colorless firebreathing is a decent card, but with join forces it becomes a must for any politically-minded player.

@Clockworkswordfish
Powercreep is not a valid argument in this case, this is EDH and this card was designed to exist in this format, not in any other, and it's not legal i any other (except vintage/legacy, where it's not powerful enough to see play anyway).

@A3Kitsune
You're right, it has the markings of the classic Shivan Dragon (except for the crocodile belly), but we haven't seen many examples of Shivan Dragons over the years, so we can't assume those marks are indicative of dragons from Shiv.

I really like the hint of rainbow color in the fire stream, subtle visual queue that he's receiving power from many sources.

What a great idea for a card. Like this "join forces' mechanic. You'll absolutely have opponents beefing up this guy when you swing at someone else just to help kill other people faster as well as giving them a giant "F--k you" haha.

The name of this card makes it sound like a yugioh card, which is a little bit dumb; but the ability seems pretty fun

-Let's make some mana-charged fire! Guys, are you with me?
-Hell yeah!

X mana-charged fire right in the face of opponent, which is unpopular.

Nice! Flavour-wise I'd like to see this used against an Archenemy.

It's not quite strictly better than the original Shivan Dragon, since you have to decide on the firbreathing as soon as it attacks, and can't choose based on how/whether you're blocked, or respond to combat tricks. But despite not being strictly better, it's still a lot better.

Join Forces is such a great concept. It brings the entire group together for a unified goal. And this one is probably the best application of it. People are much more willing to help when it will kill off only one person. Worth putting in EVERY EDH deck that uses red.
