I'd rather play Phantom Monster.

Too bad blue isn't a very offensive color by design. This sound much more like a black or maybe red card. I bet the Overseer watches a lot of matches from the sidelines.

a 3/3 flier for 4 mana sucks enough on its own so why give it a draw back...

Why is there so much hate on my flying drone friends?

Sure, its strictly worse the Phantom Monster.
But Phantom Monster never got reprinted past 5th ed.

After Hoverguard Observer, there wasnt an uncommon CMC 4 flyer with power 3 or greater until Lorwyn (Ethereal Whiskergill)

The first card printed strictly better then it was Voyager Drake.

But lets talk limited (as I feel discussing its use for competetive constructed is pointless)

The drake is part of Zendikar block, some of the fastest paced limited seen to MAN! A 3/3 flyer for 2UU is just too inflexible in this format, forcing me to have a strong commitment to blue and missing out on some powerful cheap creatures and removal from the other colours. You are either going to play it in a 2 or 3 colour beatdown deck as a 3U 3/3 flyer(to fly over what your small ground troops can no longer push through), or in a mono-blue deck which gives it the added flexibility of being a game breaker. If you are not working around the Drake you... (see all)
