Does an "elder dragon" count as a "dragon"?

Asked by Phyrexia108 5 years ago

I am making standard dragons when dragons of tarkir comes out and I wanted to know about the elder dragon creature type. If I play Dragonlord Kolaghan, will he trigger Dragon Tempest? Or will he get +3/+3 from Crucible of Fire? Basically, does the creature type "elder dragon" count as a "dragon"... Thanks in advance.

Types and subtypes are single words. Dragonlord Kolaghan has the creature types "Elder" and "Dragon." "Elder Dragon" is not a creature type (although the creature type "Elder" has thus far only been used in reference to what are canonically the Elder Dragons, which may be the cause of your confusion).

So Dragon Tempest's damage ability would trigger and Dragonlord Kolaghan would get +3/+3 from Crucible of Fire, right?

Yes. As I explained, Dragonlord Kolaghan has the creature type "Dragon." Any effects that look for that creature type will see Dragonlord Kolaghan.
