Shivan Dragon

RARRRR! This guy is STILL popular! He says, "Deal with me now, or I win." A very nice casual card and of course of the ever-popular Dragon variety. In limited, a MUST pick, if not for your own deck, then as a defensive draft...because you DON'T WANT ANYONE ELSE to play it against you....and it's great trade bait. =)

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 5
Limited - 5

Shivan Dragon - The King, if there ever was one. When I first started playing, back in Beta, my first assortment of creatures included what I thought was a very impressive Water Elemental. When I finally started playing with some people at school, one of them showed me a Shivan Dragon. I was absolutely awe-struck. Even in those days, I liked a good combo more than a good creature, but the sheer majesty of Shivan Dragon was hard to beat.
I never managed to own a Shivan Dragon until 8th edition. It just never showed up in any packs, and I never needed them for tournament play. Shivan is, of course, a limited bomb like few others. I don't think we'll ever see him headlining in Red Deck Wins, though.
