    don't see the point nowadays, but it's good enough to perhaps see play in slower priests with enough dragons.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    mana cheating is good, if you are playing dragon priest (which maybe is getting another card didn't see all the dumped ones yet) maybe it's good enough? priest has some good dragons.

    A lot of these study cards pull from very big pools where there are a lot of bad neutral cards, but dragons are mostly fairly large minions, so this could be acceptable in a midrange dragon priest deck.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.

    Nice to see Dragon Priest getting some love, but I don't see this fitting into any decks currently.  It might be enough for a Tempo Dragon Priest deck to arise with the support the got in AoO, but I don't expect the deck to make any waves.

    I think this study is better than some of the other studies for 2 reasons. One, dragons are something you want to have in your hand sometimes. With some of the other studies I feel like you would only play them thinking "Well I am dead anyways maybe I can find a miracle". But with Draconic Studies, you can know as you are playing the card exactly what will happen as a result of having a dragon because you know what synergies you will be able to activate. Also, dragons are expensive enough, and there will probably be few enough in your deck that the cost reduction will be more relevant than on some of the other studies.

    This will see play in dragon priest. From what i have seen, we got a good amount of new dragons. And their well statted and have good effects. Maybe this will be the "ressurection" of dragon priest in standard? Also 1 mana spells are easy spellburst activators, so maybe it will see play because of that?

    In wild it's REALLY good. Every dragon priest LOVES the chance to discover a Duskbreaker or Primordeal Drake. Will see play.

    Cost reduction for Dragons is pretty good since they're expensive and you want to get them out earlier. It seems like it would be really good in Dragon Priest, although I'm not sure when the last time they got any actual support was.

    Complete support for dragon priest, be it standard or wild. 5/5 card.

    That's one nice looking book cover.

    Discover dragons is almost always good. Being able to discount them makes it even better. Just a solid card for priest, and I'm a little upset that this is the one card that it doesn't share with paladin.

    Always liked Dragon Priest - so i guess this card is decent enough. But only will see play if some sort of Dragon Priest will emerge otherwise i guess it is too weak.

    Maybe priest will get some dragons again, someday. But for now - there are more exciting stuff to put in your deck.

    Worth running in highlander so that you can play it on turn 9, then on turn 10 play Dragonqueen Alexstrasza plus both the minions she generates? Think it's probably a bit too high rolly, but you never know.

    May all your legendaries be golden.

    Yeah, like the other Studies cards, very useful and value-oriented.

    Cheap spell that generate some value. It's ok for sure and probably will see play in some slow Priest deck. In wild is super strong for Dragon Priest

    Might be decent in Highlander Dragons. Dragons are usually good, and cheating them out is even better.

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?
