    I think its better than inkmaster solia and u can have 2 copies. just think about all those new upgraded malygos spells. at least it could be 6 mana flamestrike/blizzard plus 4/4 body. it's different than arcane tyrant because mage have so many aggressive spells not just wall of taunts and draw

    Inkmaster Solia doesn't see much play, so I have doubts about this. On the other hand this is cheaper, can be used in nonhighlander decks and now we have more expensive spells to use effect properly.

    I see value, but effect was printed before and wasn't even ran all that often. You just not often can flex this in in Mage it seems.

    While I can see it being played in a few decks, I believe it would be a lot more played if it somehow had the dragon tag.

    Decent card, overall, its winning points over inkmaster are:

    holding a dragon is not that hard

    its cheaper so you can use costier cards alongside it

    Not sure where you would want to play this. If it enables a combo it will see play, otherwise not so much

    Never saw Inkmaster Solia too much, so hard to say if this will get played. The condition is easier to meet, and the cost is less. Guess we'll see.

    Only because of this card, Dragon Big Spell mage could end up existing.

    This card can generate value, but the condition to activate the battlecry make this card viable only in control deck with "a lot of" dragon.

    Really good card. Seems like they want a control dragon mage deck this expansion, maybe even highlander type

    Still won't disenchant my Inkmaster Solia as it is not guaranteed to activate in wild highlander mage due to dragon requirement. Although the new dragons may make the cut into the deck which makes this easier to activate. In standard this seems insane especially with puzzle box or more expensive spells.

    gonna be a lot of dragon decks in the coming year or so and they will most undoubtedly be packing this.

    Holy damn this is gonna make big spell mage a thing. Expect pyroblasts and box builds.

    Only thing I can think of is 6 Mana pyroblast lol possibly followed up by another fireball

    Well this card is kind of admitting that Inkmaster Zolia was a bad card. I think this is pretty playable in Highlander Mage. Being able to 6 mana Flamestrike and put a 4/4 on the board for two cards is close to a Lord Godfrey, and that is a great card.
