    Guess it's a solid replacement for Azure Drake, which the additional stats will matter more often than spell damage is most dragon deck. This can be strong but it has to compete with other auto-include dragons.

    Absolutely one of the best cards of the set, it has better stats than Azure Drake and the same text bar the spell damage. Dragon synergy is going to be huge in this meta, will definitely see play in all dragon themed decks and even maybe in other decks.

    Azure Drake was hall of famed for less, but time has changed. In comparison to other, more flashier cards of the set this feels dull, but for dragon decks its still obvious choice.

    You play a 5/5 and draw a card. That's good. I think it'll see more play than we think.

    Like most people said, it's a better Azure drake, since +1/+1 is better in most situations than spell damage +1.

    it's not better than Azure Drake like everyone is talking, because +1 spell damage are highly strong, but it's a good card and card draw and will fit perfectaly on every dragon deck.

    I'm honestly impressed at how many people think that this is a pack filler.

    It is not impressive but this might be THE dragon card that you see in every single dragon deck. Seems like the perfect card to act as a trigger for all your "if you have a dragon in your hand" cards.

    Cute little card that draw. That's so cute. But no. You won't be playing a 5 mana cost card to draw cards with. Maybe in dragon paladin with buffs, but that might be a little too little too late by that point.

    At first I thought it was mediocre but draw is ALWAYS good and it has a pretty decent body.

    Imagine being azure drake and seeing this.

    What actually makes me pissed is why HoF Azure Drake if you are gonna print a better one?

    No one played Azure Drake for its spell damage

    Did they think he wasgood because of that? lol

    Lets see if this one will see as much play as his blue brother did

    Very good stats and effect for arena but I don't think it's going to be played on ladder..

      Hi, have you met Azure Drake? It was sent to Hall of Fame because it was an auto-include in most decks (hint: it was not because of spell damage).
