Imagine a bunch of people pumping this up and then after it kills someone flinging it at someone else? That seems like it would be pretty funny.

This is the one application of Join Forces that I like, as the dragon doesn't grant each opponent some amount of resources to use against you. There are very few ways in which the opponents' additional investment can be turned against you.

Mana-Charged Dragon isn't the greatest creature in EDH (it just attacks), but it's not terribly far off from some of the real all-star fatties of the format. More importantly, it's definitely one of the most fun creatures in the format. In larger multiplayer games, this card can end player's lives in a single swing with the help from the rest of the table; it leads to a lot of bartering (and pleading).

The name is so horrid. The card is not.

This actually has a lot of disadvantages over Shivan Dragon, but a lot of them aren't noticeable at first glance.

1) Your opponent can pump it if you try to block Boros Reckoner or Phyrexian Obliterator with it.
2) Since you can only pump it while its attacking or blocking, you can't pump it during your upkeep or main phase with effects like Coalition Relic (after removing the charge counter) or Braid of Fire.
3) Similarly, this means you have to attack or block with it before you can pump it for a card like Fling, and your opponent might have a big flyer that can kill it in combat.
4) If you leave some mana open when you swing with it and they play something like Hydrosurge to screw with your combat math, you can't activate the ability a few more times to get to enough power again.

Then of course Mind Control, Phthisis/autocard... (see all)

Shivan with trample. Awesome. And with join forces on the firebreathing. Even awesomer.

Serious. She is a Shivan. Compare her casting cost, power/toughness, and most important, her art, to the classic Shivan Dragon.

ahem, ClockworkSwordfish... This isn't exactly meant to be balanced for standard play. Many things in the Commander decks are crazy. Well you pull this from a booster, then you can cry powercreep.
