Tower Drake

 
Show

5.0: First pick no matter what.  I will always play this card.
4.5: Splashable and first pick worthy.
4.0: First pick pack 1.
3.5: Early pick though not always a first pick.
3.0: Solid early/mid pick.
2.5: Solid pick in color.
2.0: Should generally make the deck if in this color.
1.5: Decent filler.
1.0: 23rd card if you have to.
0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in.
0.0: I will never put this card into my deck (main deck or after sideboarding).


I actually like Tower Drake more now then I thought I would.  It's a fairly cheap flyer.  And the toughness boost can be good at times.  If you're Azorius it's a very solid pick.  If you're blue it's still ok.

I agree with 2. It's no Sunspire Griffin, but if you have 2 white mana up it can be in a pinch. It also goes without saying that if you draft 1 or more Civic Sabers you are going to want to run this.
I don't care for it much. I much prefer to run Vassal Soul if push comes to shove.

1.5
bulletd Guidelines: 5.0: I will take this card no matter what. Creature 1 or playable 1 or hate 1.Archangel of Thune 4.5: Bomb and splashable. Creature 1-2, playable 1-2, removal 1. Jace, Memory Adept 4.0: Excellent first pick first pack, will sway me into same colors. Creatures 1-4, removal 1. Haunted Plate Mail 3.5: Excellent first pack pick two, will confirm colors or possibly sway into second color. Doom Blade 3.0: Good in-color addition, or splashable removal/creature.

Elvish Mystic 1.5: My 23rd or 22nd card, depending on removal. Act of Treason 1.0: 23rd card if I don't maindeck an additional land. Lay of the Land 0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in. Brave the Elements 0.0: I will shred this card for counters. Darksteel Forge
2. I like it better than Vassal soul both with White (higher upside) and without (easier to cast, more fragile).
