Rimescale Dragon

Snow Creature — Dragon


(2)(Snow): Tap target creature and put an ice counter on it. ((Snow) can be paid with one mana from a snow permanent.)

Creatures with ice counters on them don't untap during their controllers' untap steps.

Rimescale Dragon Discussion

mrdehring - I do like Scrying Sheets , and I didn't even know Rimescale Dragon existed. I put 'em both in there. I might not have enough snow permanents, but I'm hoping Sheets will give me even a little bit of repeatable card advantage with whatever leftover mana.

And that dragon is just awesome haha, late game he just shuts down every other creature. I don't think I can find a spot for the other snow cards, unfortunately.

I don't like Ramunap Excavator either, and The Mending of Dominaria would be a great way to fix my get-creatures-back-from-graveyard issue (thinking about Volrath's Stronghold ). I'll try it out.

I like Nesting Dragon a LOT, too, but I don't know if I'd prefer it over Zendikar's Roil or Omnath, Locus of Rage since I like what they provide after a board wipe.

I got Dread in the Maybeboard haha, I gotta save on mana costs and it comes down to 4 < 6.

If you are going to be putting lands into your graveyard you may want something like The Mending of Dominaria as a useful graveyard filling tool, and way to reanimate your lands. Most people like Ramunap Excavator as well, but I'm not really sold on the naga cleric.

You may need to up your snow land count to make this work, but Scrying Sheets is a great way to dig through a deck with snow. I used to run Coldsteel Heart , Phyrexian Ironfoot , Rimescale Dragon and Ohran Viper to up my snow count as well. Skred is also great if you go further down this path.

For more landfall I've had great luck with Nesting Dragon .

Big fan of No Mercy have you met her sister Dread ?

And forgot to suggest a theme for another creation... Since I'm a big fan of the Ice Age Block, create a card that takes advantage of Snow Lands and/or Permanents that aren't terrible cards like Rimescale Dragon or Rimefeather Owl.

patrickloyd what would you suggest I take out? And what would go in?

DemonDragonJ on Why is Rimescale Dragon Red ...

6 months ago

Rimescale Dragon is a red card, despite the fact that it has a very blue ability and that both its name and artwork are highly evocative of blue.

Why is that? It certainly cannot be because dragons are the most iconic red creatures in the game, since WotC has printed plenty of non-red dragons before they printed that card, and it cannot be because the color pie was not well-defined at that time, because it was. What does everyone else say about this? Why is rimescale dragon red and not blue?

So, landwise I do not like the Valakut, and would recommend either Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Flamekin Village or an Utility land like Buried Ruin. Also not a fan of Brave the Sands and Dowsing Dagger. just too cute for me. Still a fan of Scroll Rack when you play Land Tax though :)

Creaturewise I think Dragonmaster Outcast is just too low impact, also Moonveil Dragon and Skyship Stalker are a bit weak. Even though Dragonspeaker Outcast provides great ramp I am struggling with that one. There are a few dragons which merit further exploration I think, but can depend on what you are facing.

Thunderbreak Regent (A rattlesnake and nicely costed)

Thundermaw Hellkite (can clear the way for your non-trampling attack)

Scourge of the Throne (it is perfectly easy to get an additional attack out of this at least once)

Rimescale Dragon (would require moving to snow lands, a bit clunky manawise)

Kilnmouth Dragon (good utility dragon, but with the nr. of dragons you are running may be awkward)

Hellkite Charger (additional attacks? would pair nicely with neheb :)

Flameblast Dragon (no need to hit a player to dish out damage)

Wardscale Dragon (defense during your attack)

Nesting Dragon (The egg tokens are a good thing against board wipes)

Some Card Draw Dragons

Hoarding Dragon (Without the ability to misuse the ability may be a bit weak)

Eternal Dragon (more slow moving)

Dream Pillager (good effect, setup to high maybe)

Skyline Despot (well draws at least one cards and monarch makes stuff move)

Runehorn Hellkite (this one I really like. Usable EOT before you have your turn makes this really good)

That’s cool. My playgroup is a more cutthroat group, so I’ve needed to turbocharge my deck. The problem is it has so little control or removal. Rimescale Dragon and the snow-covered lands I think offers that at a pretty cheap price point too. Great idea!

Personally, I find Brisela, Voice of Nightmares to be pretty slow in Kaalia, however the OG Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is pretty standard in decks of this type. I like the Snow-covered lands bit and Rimescale Dragon. That’s a take I’ve never seen before, I might try that myself.
