And thus was Firebreathing finally good enough to the community. And lo, did they rejoice at those magic words. "Draw a card."

Strictly better than Firebreathing. Might see play in Standard!

You and Two-Headed Cerberus will get along just fine in Limited...

"Wow, Firebreathing wasn't good enough?" --Pendulous

Quite frankly no, it wasn't. :D

Firebreathing has the average aura's "2 for 1"-problem, since you easily end up at a card disadvantage if your opponent hits your enchanted creature with removal.

Making this a cantrip makes all the difference between bad and decent, at least in constructed.
That issue with auras is a major thing they tried to fix in Theros, which is an enchantment-based cycle after all. One reason they introduced the heroic mechanic was to make them even more appealing.
And I'd say they absolutely succeeded :D

This really puts the one power from black and two toughness for white to shame...

If you're playing red in Limited, then you're picking all of these you can find. This card is a house in Limited and honestly I wouldn't be surprised if it showed up in Standard or even Pauper. That's probably it though, since I mean, it's just firebreathing. But still, a Firebreathing that cantrips for a mere one mana! This is definitely one of the better/best Auras that has been printed. I can't tell you how many times my opponent won with this card alone. It was more than one. MORE THAN ONE.

Love it. Firebreathing is awesome, and drawing a card all for 1 mana? Good stuff.

Every set, there is a card that I completely overlook on initial release, but I end up realizing it's worth once I start playing with it. In Theros, that card is Dragon Mantle. I don't even remember seeing it when they released the image gallery, but when I was building a Rakdos Weenie deck and was looking for something cheap to trigger heroic on Tormented Hero, I tossed a few of these into the deck. Firebreathing with card draw. Has been a difference-maker for me on more than one occasion, even when it isn't triggering heroic. This and Madcap Skills have allowed for some pretty massive early round swings with my deck.
