|As soon as it
was released, Magmadragon Jagalzor was an instant
hit. Of course the artwork was utterly gorgeous,
which was part of the attraction for most duelists.
Let’s see what this creature is really capable of.
Race: Volcano Dragon
· Double breaker (This creature breaks 2 shields.)
· Turbo rush (If any of your other creatures broke
any shields this turn, this creature gets its
ability until the end of the turn.)
Each of your creatures in the battle zone has "speed
attacker." (A creature that has "speed attacker"
doesn't get summoning sickness.)
As far as power, Magmadragon Jagalzor is pretty
average. Having 6000 power for the cost of 6 mana is
pretty ordinary, but it’s still lower than other
creatures in this range. Nevertheless, we still
shouldn’t call it a setback because its 6000 power
can shred through a very large number of creatures,
including blockers. Include the fact that Jagalzor
can be rushed out by turn 4 and you’ve got the
potential to build a really fast and ruthless deck.
As far as Magmadragon Jagalzor’s effect, most people
think it’s advantageous because it gives any of your
new summons “speed attacker”. In actuality, some
people haven’t realized that Magmadragon Jagalzor’s
effect is quite similar to Twin-Cannon Skyterror in
that it can attack as soon as it’s summoned and it
has double breaker. All you need to do is summon
Jagalzor then have at least one of your other
creatures slam into your opponent’s shields. When
this occurs, Magmadragon Jagalzor’s effect will kick
in and remove the summoning sickness, allowing it to
attack. Therefore, just like Twin-Cannon, you’ll be
able to attack and double break as soon as
Magmadragon Jagalzor comes out. After this happens
then the game turns out to be all-out mayhem since
every new creature you summon can become a speed
If you want to make Jagalzor even deadlier then
spice it all up with a little bit of nature. By
using a simple mana engine and Soulswap you can have
Jagalzor out by turn 4. Enjoy!
The Good: It’s a Twin-Cannon Skyterror that comes
out a turn sooner.
The Bad: When you have no other creatures out you
pretty much end up wasting a turn.
The Ugly: After just one turn shredding your
opponent with Jagalzor you can bring out Bombazar
for the easy win. It’s cheap and lacks finesse. :/
Constructed Rating: 4.5/5 – Magmadragon Jagalzor is
very close to a 5. It’s speed is just too difficult
to contend with.
Limited Rating: 4.5/5 – Your opponent will find it
nearly impossible to stop this creature in limited.
Blockers are a little harder to come by in limited
so you’ll pretty much have your way.
Please feel free to post your comments, questions,
and/or objections on the Message Board and I’ll be
more than happy to respond. Happy dueling!

One of three Volcano Dragons, Jagalzor is a six cost
creature with a nifty little effect. After summoning
this behemoth and fulfilling the condition to
activate its ability, your other creatures in the
battle zone become speed attackers. The 6000 power
is enough to overcome weak blockers and prevent
instant death from certain kill spells. There are
many cards that can benefit from Jagalzor’s turbo
rush ability, just think of the abuse and the
endless possibilities this card can bestow upon its
As stated before, Magmadragon Jagalzor has the
potential to cause great concern for your opponent
by making all your creatures speed attackers.
Although the rules state that a creature cannot turn
on its own turbo rush ability when it breaks a
shield, the use of spells and creatures with
abilities such as cannot be blocked, tap and silent
skill can help to activate it. One way to put
Jagalzor’s effect to good use is to summon an
adequate amount of creatures in the battle zone,
namely low cost creatures, and then rush your
opponent. Another strategy is to play Bolmeteus
Steel Dragon or any other heavy hitting fatty,
trigger Jagalzor’s turbo rush ability, and quickly
wreak untold havoc on your opponents’ shields or
pummel his creatures into the ground! Remember, if
Jagalzor goes kaput, all your creatures lose the
speed attacker status and revert to being unable to
attack due to summoning sickness.
Even if stripped of its turbo rush ability
Magmadragon Jagalzor is a decent creature on its
own, capable of being evolved into more powerful
Dragon forms and fits snugly in a deck utilizing
Dragons. Try this card out and watch your enemy
cower in fear from the deafening roar of this mighty
