Rakdos Pit Dragon

Dissension Rare

2RR: Creature - Dragon

RR: Rakdos Pit Dragon gains flying until end of turn.
R: Rakdos Pit Dragon gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
Hellbent - Rakdos Pit Dragon has double strike as long as you have no cards in hand.

3/3

Wow...4 for basically a "I cannot be blocked except by a flyer even though I don't have flying" and a firebreather. Not to mention if used in the Rakdos deck, it can get double strike quite easily.

3.5/5

Without Hellbent this card is decent, but with Hellbent this card is great. 3/5

This card.........Rar. It's insane, and since you'll probably stuff this in a discard deck, you'll dish out some major beatdown. Very situational though, not recommended much.

3.5/5

I love this card for one reason only. The ability to have flying without being one with it. makes sense?

It can be a flyer without suffering the sideeffects. Obviously a great addition in mono red.

True. Which is why it spells beatdown. I mean, its Double-Strike should already take out most monsters, and the fact that it can fly makes blocking it harder. I don't know about you, but it sure as hell is screaming beatdown for me.

indeed.

it seems as if R&D are trying to make red more beat down instead of green, since green's best card right now is Birds of Paradise hands down and obviously, a 0/1 isnt the greatest beatdown card... at all.

This card makes me happy.

It can pump itself, jump and is able to have double strike. Works for me.

3/5

Yeah......But I'll love the double-strike too if I can discard fast enough.
