Read my recent article to understand the brokenness that is Worldgorger Dragon. After seeing the official card, I now understand that no one must have seen this combo. It will receive errata so its 'power' will be gauged by that. It isn't horrible, but it isn't great either. Due to so much bounce in the format, I can imagine this might be fairly naughty. Play Dragon, have its ability put on the stack, bounce it, put its other ability on the stack, lose all your perms, permanently. That would be horrible. So constructed, without combo, its horrible and a 1.5. Limited its not great either and would garner a 2. Combolicious Rating, 5.

A nice body for the price .... just don't even think about playing it against blue. 

And since blue is decently strong right now, I wouldn't start this. Maybe in the board, but not main.

In limited, on the other hand, It can be all that and more. 

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 4

Worldgorger Dragon

I assume you've all seen Fletcher's column where he describes why Worldgorger Dragon will be corrected, so I'll ignore that aspect in my review. Under normal conditions, this is a fattie that just makes me shrug. A 7/7 flying trampler for 3RRR is very good, but you lose all other creatures and your lands too, so you can't give him any support. Unless you're very sure your opponent can't deal with Worldgorger Dragon, you shouldn't cast him.

In constructed, there will undoubtedly be ways around the drawback, but he's still removed by Blue and Black very cheaply. He's about as good in limited. Fat is good, losing the rest of your minions is definitely not.

Constructed - 3

Limited - 3

Worldgorger Dragon is an interesting card. While it has been proven that it can fit into the combo based extended environment, it won't last for long. In Standard, it just doesn't have the same tools, and the drawbacks are way too severe to be played (unless you combo it with Balancing Act).

In Limited, this guy is a beater if you can afford to play the triple red. He won't save you from games you are losing, but he will definately be able to win you some that you wouldn't without him. 

Constructed: 2.5
Limited: 3.5
