View Full Version : MTG COTD: Gilded Drake

Gilded Drake - Urza's Saga. Rare
1U: Summon Drake
When Gilded Drake comes into play, exchange control of Gilded Drake for target creature one of your opponents controls or sacrifice Gilded Drake.
Buyer beware.

heh, this is like Spawnbroker or Phyrexian Infiltrator. Anyway, 2 for a 3/3 flyer to give to your opponent? Obviously for late game purposes. The thing is, it has 3 toughness so a single shock wont kill it. If you have another removal card in your hand, it's a 2 mana confiscate. Pretty cool.

The Duck's Rating: 2.75/5

This + any cheap bouncing card = me happy.

For approximately three or four mana, you get a creature. It's that simple.

Great if your opponent has a creature that you want. 2/5

.........This card is cheap. Why did my cousin give me the last few remaining "trash" Urza's Saga cards he had.....? I mean, they were chucked in some corner while his fortune of old cards got tossed by my aunt.....Gosh.

Back to the point, this card is 1337. It's useful in the right situation, and it's perfect for snagging that giant beatdown creature your opponent has that's going to beat down on you, or something else. Definitely useful. I give it 3/5.

Of course it would be incredible as well if one could disable the exchange ability.

It's for late-game play, countering beatdown. Yeah. What's the point of your opponent having a flyer when you can kill it any day of the week when it comes for you? And you get your opponent's uber-creature of doom........I just love that.
