  • Red

    Well, this seems fun.

  • Aarhg

    Very neat card. I hope it doesn’t get too pricey.

    • Derek Niles

      I can’t see card being expensive. He’s definitely good and packs a punch in limited but I feel like his true home will be the kitchen table

      • Melissa Juice

        You think? I could see this fitting into a tempo build, on the high end.
        Hmmm. Maybe, maybe not.

      • Kameenook

        It’s the costs an extra two to remove that makes it a nightmare. Combine it potentially with the red regent, and maybe even monastery siege, and your creatures will be a nightmare to deal with as they fly in for death from above.

        • Derek Niles

          I’m not saying he’s not good, he’s great, I just don’t see him in constructed. It just doesn’t seem like that kind of card to me

  • Ian

    Oh hey Frost Titan. Wouldn’t you a mythic. Feels bad bro.

  • BlahBlahBlahBla

    Frost Titan Dragon!

    I dig it. Nothing revolutionary, but a solid creature for sure. An absolute monster in Limited imo.

    • More of a Dungeon Geist-Frost Titan Dragon.

  • SmolderingButcher

    I feel like this card is going to be dragon all the creatures down with it.

    • Ryū

      I see what you did there… harharhar

    • Derek Niles

      I have seen what you did good sir

    • Kameenook

      We need more people with punny minds. If you don’t have a punny mind, you might be in for some punishment.

  • MrAptronym

    I love it, as someone who dislikes dragons, this is one of the few creatures I am really digging in this set so far.

    • Derek Niles

      Wait…you Dislike dragons? The cornerstone fantasy creature? I think you might be alone with that option lol

      • XC

        That’s nothing, I’m friends with a RED player who dislikes dragons.

        Give him more Phoenixes and Boros Angels any day.

        • Melissa Juice

          Red angels? Those goody two-shoes? Ew!

      • MrAptronym

        Surveys would agree with you there. I find dragons a bit boring.

        This set doesn’t do much for me. I give most of my dragons to friends unless they spark another interest in me. I won’t be buying packs of this set, I’ll grab some uncommon/commons and just a couple rares it looks like.

        • Venerable lamasu

          Enough hating on dragons, I play dragon tribal, and encourage YOU to play dragon tribal.

          • MrAptronym

            Dragon tribal sounds like the most boring deck I could ever play.

          • AlaAlba

            Speaking as someone who will soon have three different dragon tribal decks that all do wildly different things, I disagree in the most auspicious manner possible. It all depends on how you build it.

          • MrAptronym

            I mean personally, because I do not like dragons. I don’t get excited to see new ones, I don’t really enjoy playing them, I don’t like the art. I am sure a great many people play and enjoy dragon tribal, but the great thing about magic is that I don’t have to play dragon tribal, because I do not like it. I don’t really even like tribal decks. I have fooled around with merfolk and moonfolk and elementals, but none of them have been my favorite decks.

            The only dragons I like are ones that are mechanically linked with things I do like.

  • Tinowen Dakota Waltman

    It’s Dungeon Geists, except with +1/+0, a tax on spells that target it, and 1 higher cmc. Neat.

    • Necrachilles

      At first I was thinking pseudo Frost Titan but your description is superior.

    • Melissa Juice

      And I loved Dungeon Geist.

  • Ryū

    Pretty… cool YEEEEEAAAAAAH

    • Derek Niles

      Yeah…you went there lol

      • Ryū

        It’s what I do. Living life on the edge ( ͡°╭͜ʖ╮͡° )

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Beautiful. The next step in Storm Crow technology.

  • Melissa Juice

    Tempooooooooooooo.

  • aoslksoforkensns

    9/10
    will see play

    • Jandro

      I agree.

    • Kameenook

      10/10. That Frost Titan clause though.

  • M

    How does something like this work if you were to somehow give it phasing? Phasing states that you ignore that it exist I believe, but you would still control it. What I’m getting at is, could you phase it out and chose different creatures each time it phases in?

    • DoogleHallow

      Phasing in isn’t entering the battlefield so you wouldn’t get the extra tap and when it phases out it breaks the tap lock and their creature untaps next turn

      • M

        But in that regard then when it phases out, their creature would not untap as it is still there under your control? If phasing in isn’t entering the battlefield, then phasing out means it doesn’t leave the battlefield.

        • AlaAlba

          It may never technically leave the battlefield, but it’s treated as if it’s not on the battlefield. Phasing is weird, and causes a lot of counterintuitive rules interactions. That’s why they don’t do it anymore.

        • richardshort2001

          Yeah, as AlaAlba said, old and new mixed cause some weird interactions. Remember that a card “doing” something, like entering or leaving the battlefield, and a card “being” something like either being in or not in the battlefield aren’t always the same thing. Just like when you remove a blocker, your creature is still blocked even though nothing is blocking it, or if you put a creature onto the battlefield attacking, the creature is attacking (“being”), but never actually attacked (“doing”)

  • Kameenook

    I like this, and I believe in its standard playability.

  • kmk888

    I like this card. I like the effect. I like the tempo swing. I am building Esper Dragons, and I want to play it. But GOOD LORD the art is terrible. I mean it makes me not want to play the card, the art is so bad. I am praying they release an alternate art version, I would snap up 4 copies in a heartbeat.
