I was about to react to the fact that MasterOfEtherium capitalized only one word in his post, but realized he copied somebody else's statement.

(Also, I'd like to disagree with inmypants22's statement and say that Yosei, the Morning Star is better. Although it doesn't have the plainscycling flexibility.)

Unlike most cards in Magic, Eternal Dragon always has a use regardless of situation. It can attack to deal damage, can block to prevent damage, can fetch land for mana and/or landfall, can return from dead to do all of the above again.

Eternal Dragon, please bring Goku back to life so he can save us from Vegeta!

Wouldn't be played in today's standard? Given ISD block's penchant for graveyard manipulation and its support for Spirit tribal, I think you're dead wrong on that one. Eternal Dragon fetches part of the Flashback cost of Unburial Rites and hits the table as a 6/6 Hexproof flying creature if you have out a Drogskol Captain (and if you're playing Spirits in standard right now, you're probably running a full set of captains). It's not the world-beater than it used to be, but it's still a fine card that holds up to scrutiny even now. Considering how old the card is, that's saying something for its design.

Really broken in the monowhite control decks that were extremely popular during onslaught block. It held its own as a prime finisher alongside akroma, angel of wrath, and that says a whole lot. It also helps you out whenever you draw it regardless of whether it shows up early or late. The utility it offers is simply amazing. 5/5

With the utility that this card has is so great that I'd go as far as counting this as a non-creature card in any white deck simply because I can use its other ability to give me land when I need it. Also, since it only specifies Plains, one can use it to scoop up any of the Ravnica pain lands. 5/5

What's with all the mono white comments? Has anyone noticed it searches a "plains" card, not a basic land? I point this out because the cycling ability is perfect for fixing in a Kaalia of the Vast EDH deck.

Colorless cycling to get any plains based dual land from your deck, either Plateau, Scrubland, Godless Shrine, or Sacred Foundry - whichever you one need. It will even get you another one later if you're missing land drops (happens to the best of us) by paying the 5 mana cost upkeep and cycling again whenever possible. Options are better than nothing in that situation.

Topdeck or reanimate it late game with Kaalia out and you've got a free 5/5 flyer on the attack. Show me another creature based (angel/demon/dragon*) fixer with those specs... Really, I'd like to know. 5/5

Great card, but I can't ever see this without thinking of Shinron from DBZ.
