It's in my venser, the sojourner control deck. I'll happily steal one of my opponents creatures a turn for free, all while my planeswalker gains loyalty. My friends utterly despise this card. Such a ridiculously powerful effect for such a cheap mana cost.

Also works well with the sun titan, who happens to be in the same deck. Aether Adept is another sweet little enabler.

A more concise version of why the text "This ability can't be countered except by spells and abilities." is present:
Let's say it didn't have that text and I targeted one of my opponent's creatures with the drake's enter the battlefield trigger. In response, my opponent sacrificed that creature, returned it to hand, gave it protection or shroud, or made it an illegal target in any other way, the ability would be countered because of no legal targets. That would mean I wouldn't have to sacrifice the Drake, because the "If you don't make an exchange, sacrifice Gilded Drake." text is part of the exchange trigger.

The reason it says "Up to" is so the ability goes on the stack even if there are no creatures on the board. If it didn't say "up to" and you played the drake with an empty board, you would get to keep the drake since the ability would never go on the stack.

With a Mimic Vat you can go to town.

(This effect lasts indefinitely.)
Yep, and this is why Gilded Drake owns. 5/5

Funny that no-one has mentioned Despotic Scepter.

There is so much options with this incredible creature, I usually bounce him with Waterfront Bouncer and this is only one option.
