Magic the Gathering best Dragons cards

Powering Through Dragons of Tarkir

I like that as Magic players we get a gift-giving holiday (at the least) four times a year. I snuck down the stairs early this morning to stay under the dragon-tree and shake the new cards in an attempt to figure out what gift ideas they'll certainly be supplying us within the numerous platforms the following months. Certain, you will find a few pairs of brand new socks in there—useful spells and critters which do the job that needs to get done—but there's also some exciting new toys only waiting to be broken. In a great way.

Anytime we view a unique ready, like Dragons of Tarkir, i will be mentally placing the cards into four buckets—or present bags, if we wish to expand last paragraph's example any more than it demands going. I am selecting the commons that i must be drafting very, the cards that influence Standard, Commander cards i must fool around with and around, and lastly some cards that simply stimulate me personally about creating decks. Let's start-off with 40-carders and work our method upward in deck size with a high 5 cards per group. All positions are purely personal and I also encourage one to let me know on Twitter (@Top8Games) where our opinions veer down in numerous instructions.

#5 Zephyr Scribe

Everyone loves a Looter and historically they truly are constantly high selections in any restricted structure unless obtained a high cost for activation, like Bloodfire Mentor in Khans of Tarkir Limited—but also then chances are you nevertheless see it played every so often if the deck fits it. Not just does Zephyr Scribe have a somewhat inexpensive to use its capability, but you can do it several times in a turn. And it is likely to be very sweet with rebound cards like Ojutai's breathing, enabling you to loot, rebound, and untap your creature. Also, as a 2-power animal for three mana, it is possible to trade with a face-down animal if necessary and on occasion even ambush one thing in combat with an instantaneous to untap your Scribe.

#4 Dromoka Dunecaster

Yes, i am aware it doesn't deal with Dragons, but a cheap tapper that gum tissue up the best animal on the floor is going to be a slam-dunk typical that will not allow it to be really far around the dining table. You're only going to need to locate another thing that deals with their particular fliers, but white has actually that option a little higher-up on listing.

number 3 Flatten

In Khans, our two main black colored elimination commons were Throttle and Debilitating Injury. Beat is playing the part of Aura inside set as a sorcery-speed elimination spell this is certainly exclusively suitable for killing a face-down creature, nonetheless it can't "finish off" a creature post-combat like Injury. We picked Injury over Throttle in Khans. But i believe I'm going in the reverse course inside set with Flatten, that is a less expensive type of Throttle. When you get the removal-heavy deck, it's not going to clog up with Reach of Shadows from Fate Reforged at five mana. I possibly could be entirely flip-flopped right here by the time the Prerelease rolls around though.

#2 Twin Bolt

I really love Tail Slash, however it needs a couple of things to be going best for your needs and can't destroy an animal on an usually bare board. If you were to think about it as a one-sided fight—your creature could be the one that extends to secure a sucker punch within little brouhaha—it's a whole lot more appealing but it's hardly ever gonna get cast early. Alternatively, you know what you are getting out-of Twin Bolt—you might even get two creatures—and that is generally speaking going to be a dead face-down creature. It's the additional bonus of getting in a spot of harm to an opponent by using this to eliminate a Zephyr Scribe if not two harm to an opponent whenever that takes place to-be their life total.

no. 1 Pacifism

Perhaps not a unique card, but once the heavens tend to be darkened with Dragons, it is possible to count on this old favorite to nullify almost all expensive-but-powerful creatures that your particular opponents are sure to have looming for change six or seven.

no. 5 Shorecrasher Elemental

This card could single-handedly bring back the Mono-Blue Devotion archetype, and therefore alone is worthy of addition from the list. The truth that it's hard to eliminate, offers you one thing regarding your mana when you look at the middle- to late-game, and runs face-down interference to disguise your Stratus Dancers are just incentives toward valuable UUU in the top right-hand place.

#4 Ojutai's Command

I've gone to and fro over which for the two blue instructions i love more. I anticipate both of them is facets in Standard, but Silumgar's Command seems a little more like a-one- or two-of within the present blue-black shells we've observed in Standard. The fact you are able to only definitely "pattern" your Ojutai's Command if you have nothing else to accomplish offers this 1 far more play for me personally. I also believe there are many brand-new toys when it comes to devotees of Ojutai to open in the Prerelease. Putting Soulfire Grand Masters straight back into play while countering your opponent's big, dumb, green animal is nothing to sneeze at both.
