Sapphire Drake
Creature—Drake (U)
Flying
Each creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it has flying.
Sapphire drakes can communicate over great distances, their calls resonating in the gems fixed in their skulls.
4/4

I love it. 
I play for fun
It's a very fun card, but... I don't get the flavor. At all. They can talk to each other with gems, so... they enable creatures with counters to fly?

A passable Limited body to close out the game, and an outright bomb if you're playing Simic. The flavor flub aside, a great card to have in Limited as an uncommon.

i really like this card, it seems like an overrun for simic.

They encourage creatures with evolve to learn from them?
It has bad flavor, really no reason to deny it.

Nice card though the flavor is weird.
Solid limited beating.
Feels like a left over card from Ravnica.
4/4 flier for 6 in limited, nice. Gives other creatures you control flying (one of the best abilities to have in limited), awesome.

How to autocard:

Sort of an upgrade to Helium Squirter.

And they're both still wondering why they're not in junk colors for my EDH deck.
