I'd rather play Savage Beating over the Charger's ability. For almost the same cost (4RedRedRed), you untap ALL your creatures (Not just attackers), plus all your creatures gain double strike.

Its an okay card if you pay seven for another attack phase.

That ability is pretty darned expensive, though really awesome at the same time. Can attack then untap everything to get around blockers in the second combat phase. It seems like it needs to end a game though, rather than be played every turn, since the mana drawback would catch up to you eventually. Could defintley see a game win with broodmate dragons and this hellkite charger though, attack with all, kill all blockers, then attack again for 21.

Nature's will would just be insane with this card if you could ever get both into play. Garruk wildspeaker also, because he would both help with the mana cost, but if you ever got his ultimate going and your charger at the same time you get a double over run in one turn.

I think in a limited format, this guy is pretty incredible. Most of the comments make it sound like you MUST pay for his ability and him on the same turn... hardly. As a 5/5, he is tough enough to manage for a turn, and since he is hasted your're going to get one shot in at the bare minimum.

Not a massive game winner, but a very tougb flyer with a potentially game-ending ability on the turn after he hits the table.

4/5

This guy rocks, won me some games in booster-draft. Didn't get to use his extra ability though, 5/5, flying, haste was usually enough. But this plus Rampaging Baloth with lots of landfall triggers is hilarious:D

With the new Bear Umbra coming out for Eldrazi... If you have 10 mana handy, you can cast the hasty dragon, put Bear Umbra on it and get infinite attacking phases. The only way the opponent can stop you is if they bounce the Dragon or destroy it in response to the Umbra being cast. If they destroy it as it attacks, you still get to attack again since the Umbra protects it once.

Looks like a fun combo to play :P

Use this with a lot of mana and Bear Umbra.

You do realize that with Rise of the Eldrazi, you can play Hellkite's ability on the turn you play it with Bear Umbra, right? Red/green destruction!

Why do you all assume he has to play his ability the FIRST TURN he's out. Second turn you can jut pay six and annihilate as desired.
