Keiga the Tide Star

The cycle of legendary dragons from Kamigawa have been a big success. Three of the five are showing up regularly in tournament quality decks. And Keiga is the one I use the most, without a doubt. Keiga is such a perfect control card. He nearly guarantees a 2-for-1 if he dies, and is easily splashable. Obviously, you can't say enough about how good it is in Kamigawa limited. I would be hard pressed to choose any card in the entire set over the big blue dragon. And the art is good, too. As far as casual play is  concerned, Keiga shines there too. He's inoffensive enough that other players won't get angry at you for using it. He easily splashes as mentioned earlier. And he fits into not just one but two tribal decks! So much to love from Keiga.

Keiga, the Tide Star

The MTG world seems to vascilate on whether the Kamigawa dragons are useful or not. The jump in price, then crash, then jump, etc. They are hovering a little low right now, so if you're interested, now would be a good time to grab a few. Keiga isn't quite as popular as Yosei or Kokusho, which have found niches in some decent constructed decks at the moment, especially Kokusho. But Keiga is still a popular Dragon, especially in casual play. He's also very good in limited, and best of all, you can easily splash for him since he's only one Blue to cast.
