Scion of the Ur-Dragon EDH

Yes, i'll pay 34 life (minus whatever red mana I happen to have lying around) to give my general +17/+0 and kill you.
Easily usurps, or at least duplicates, Dragon Tyrant's ability to finish.

It's a robot dragon.

A robot....


There is nothing else about this card that matters.

If you want to get into particulars, though, it's a robot dragon that can be played in any deck. Not a great card, but good enough.

4/4 Flyer for 4 in any color is just great. The fact that it's a badass dragon only makes it that much more epic.

"oh, what's that you're at 13, and im' still at 20?"
"Unblocked Moltensteel, you say? Pay 18 life... +9/+0..."
Opponent: "In response, i'll cast Lightning bolt, targeting you."

Point is, yes his ability is very aggressive and yes, it will win games. Just make sure when you pay an obscene amount of life that it is the right decision.

Also, Fling for essentially 1 life per damage dealt.

someone explain something to me...
im new to magic & my boyfriend played this card against me last night & i dont see how what he did with it is legit so enighten me please?

heres what he did.. where it has the phyrexia symbol to add +1/+0 until the end of turn, by paying one red mana or 2 life..
he tapped 4 mana and added +4/+0 to the creature...
can he do that? if so how?
he swears up and down its a legal move but i dont see how it is when theres but one phyrexia symbol

Wow. I usually do not like how they do dragons in magic (for some reason)
This is the first Dragon that I am actually excited about! Maybe it's the art, maybe it's the low mana cost:power ratio, but probably it's how it feels like he has firebreathing just to make him able to get you out of that one situation, not just because he is a dragon

@Magic_mama: if those mana he tapped for were red, it was legal. You can activate Moltensteel Dragon's ability as many times per turn as you want. Of course, it only lasts until the end of the turn. He could've conceivably also tossed all his life into its ability to buff it, as well.

@Khavrion: You mean Personal Sanctuary? Steel Hellkite's ability is life payment, not damage.

This is the coolest art for a dragon, not even close.
I like how flexable this card could be, but the fact is if you need a big creature you could probably find a better one in a color that you play.

It reminds me of a Red Eyes Black Dragon from Yu-gi-oh...

Extremely aggressive though.
