A simple, yet effective way to swing for lots of
damage on the cheap. No, it won't live long, but
then again, the Simic are pretty good at
enhancing creatures! That means they need some
relatively simple creatures to start enhancing!
This would be a great candidate for throwing
some +1/+1 counters or Auras onto!
Turns out the Simic, with their new Evolve
mechanic, like creatures with large differences
in power and toughness as well! Since Evolve
cares if a creature has higher power OR
toughness, you want plenty of creatures that
have lots of one of those attributes, and the
easiest way to do that is if they scrimp on the
other. And since Drakewing Krasis has high power
for its mana cost (at the price of low
toughness) it stands a good chance of triggering
Or maybe you just want to drop a three-power
flyer for three mana and swing away. Drakewing
Krasis is remarkably good at that!
I thought drakes and dragons were already
distantly related to reptiles. If so, what
exactly does "Lizard Drake" signify as a
creature type? Can you tell from the shape of
their legs or their tongue or some such? This is
the kind of thing I was always disappointed was
never explained in minisites or Monster Manuals
or anything of that type. Don't hold that
against this creature, though - it's not
spectacular, but it's perfectly solid and fast
for its stats. With all the powerful Auras we've
seen recently, it can get downright scary.
Today's card of the day is Drakwing Krasis
which is a three mana Green and Blue 3/1 with
Flying and Trample. This is an okay
creature with nice abilities and power that is
relegated to very specific builds by the low
toughness and multicolor casting cost. With
minimal support it can be very effective and
will probably see some play if Simic themes
become popular in Constructed.
In Limited this is a good source of damage and
works very well with Green's Bloodrush options
and low power creatures with Evolve. Always
worth playing in Sealed when running Simic and a
good midrange pick in Booster.
Welcome back to the
Pojo.com card of the day section. Today we are
looking at Drakewing Crasis from Gatecrash!
Drakewing Crasis is a common blue and green
creature lizard drake that costs one generic,
one green, and one blue mana for a 3/1.
Drakewing Crasis has flying and trample.
Sometimes there exist commons that make rares, well, suck to
put it blatantly. And Drakewing Crasis is one of
them. As a common, it is likely you will see
lots of these, especially in Limited formats,
which means, the more the merrier. But even
outside of that, it is still a 3/1 flying
trample for only three mana. That means it comes
out fast, and hits faster. When combined with
Rancor and Forced Adaptation, this guy gets out
of hand, and fast! And that is just the tip of
the iceberg. There are tons of ways to exploit
