    You don't have to run any other dragons with this - you could throw Rheastrasza and Topior the Shrubbagazzor into a more general "all da good cards" Highlander deck with Take to the Skies and still benefit.

    So this is it, the entire set's payoff and its a highlander card.

    A shame really. Because that practically limits all the dragon cards to be seen only in highlander decks. While it is true that this card is a standalone that can function in highlander even without the dragon support, the same cannot be said of the reverse side. If youre playing dragon druid at all, you'll need dragon reload, and there's only one other card that does this so you effectively cannot do it without Rheastrasza

    Will this card see play. Probably, but because I dont think druid can actually play any midrange deck, let alone highlander, Im disposed to feel very negative of this card's chances. Very good power level, would easily slot into any other class without question, but in druid...youre either tossing 100 spells and destroying your opponent in a single player fest, or you get destroyed yourself with nary a whimper. Where does this card fit in both narratives?

    So if you pull this off, you get to discover a dragon every turn, and discount it by 4? Am I reading that right? This seems really powerful, provided of course that you can stay alive long enough.

    Well, this ought to make it easy to play Fye, the Setting Sun for free. Though since this an 8-Cost card, hopefully you're pretty close already, though that depends on how well highlander dragon works. I'm not entirely certain getting one cheap dragon per turn in the late game won't be too slow though.

    Sooo. You have the amazing Reno hero card AND infinite Value in highlander Druid. Yeah this will see play.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.
