Kokusho, the Evening Star, beats this in sooo many ways.

I wish it had convoke like angel of salvation. And I don't see why angel of salvation shouldn't be a mythic if it was printed in a later set

I like Bogardan Hellkite a lot, but I really wish it had haste.

Pretty cool flavor and sweet ability.

Really, though, not a very good card. It can see play in a budget Valakut or RG Turboland deck, though if one has the money, Primeval Titan and friends are way better "alternate" wincons.

PT isn't really alternate, but you know what I mean.

OUTLANDISH. DON'T READ UNLESS YOU'RE INTO WACKY COMBO DECKS.

Non-creature spells:
4 Buried Alive
4 Dark Ritual
1 Demonic tutor
1 Vampiric Tutor
4 Entomb
4 All Hallow's Eve
1 Lotus Petal
1 Wheel of Fortune
4 Entomb
4 Cabal Ritual

Creatures:
4 Bogardan Hellkite
4 Bladewing the Risen

4 Mountain
16 Swamp
4 Bloodstained Mire


took awhile to get it together, but I think that, as insane as it is, it'd be fun to whack people with this one. While mainly built to blow up a player in one hit, it does give you four 5/5 dragons to play with for multiplayer mayhem. fun fun. Should be interesting to see what happens.

EDIT~ Made the cards easier to find on Gatherer!

How come nobody has mentioned Sneak Attack? Pair it with a Mimic Vat and you're in for some fun.

Ok, cast this guy with a Sarkhan the Mad out, and in response to Hellkite's ability, cast Tainted Strike on it, and then activate Sarkhan's ultimate for a clean kill.

The best Hellkite, hands down. The steel Hellkite is a close follow-up, but this is broken. It should have cost 2 less, though. It's hard to pull off the flash in most decks because of the CMC.

It's an instant speed Lava Axe that can divide the damage and hit creatures, not to mention you also get a 5/5 Dragon. 5 damage is abou 5 cmc. 5/5 Vanilla creature in red is probably around 5 cmc. This has flash, flying, can spread the damage, and is Dragon subtype. For 8 cmc, this card is giving you a whole lot to work with. In most red decks, buy the time you get 8 mana, you're opponent shouldn't have a lot of life to take a lot from this guy. And if you accelerated to him, then it's just that much better.
