Dragonlord Atarka
Long-time readers will already have deduced that just on the basis of my personal color preferences in Magic, Atarka is my favorite of Tarkir's Dragonlords. Apart from that, though, she actually holds her own very well in the larger worlds of casual play and among the gallery of dragons past and present. Her power and toughness mean that she outfights the majority of the tribe and indeed almost any creature short of an Eldrazi. The damage ability is what you always expect a dragon's breath weapon to be but actually get surprisingly infrequently in Magic; it lacks the surprise factor of the similar Bogardan Hellkite, but that's not even always relevant against the sort of decks where you want it. And in decks or settings where you can cast her repeatedly (ie. Commander), there are few creatures more dominating.
Constructed: 4/5

EDH/Commander: 5/5
