Kolaghan, the Storm’s Fury!

The official Fate Reforged spoilers have begun and one of the cards that excites me is Kolaghan, the Storm’s Fury:

The card itself isn’t really all that much. As a commander of a dragon-themed deck, Bladewing the Risen is probably just better in those colours, but Kolaghan does have Dash, the new Mardu mechanic. This means that once Kolaghan has died a couple of times and is too expensive to cast from the command zone repeatedly, its controller can simply Dash it out once and then keep casting it for the Dash cost from the hand as needed. It’s quite narrow, but a nice option to have. The trigger also scales, meaning if you attack with Kolaghan and two other dragons, they all get +3/+0, if you attack with Kolaghan and five other dragons, they all get +6/+0 and so on.

I’m not saying it’s a great commander, but certainly a sweet addition to all the casual Dragon tribe decks in EDH.

Kolaghan, aside from getting its name seemingly right out of Skyrim, also has a special Mardu symbol with what looks like another pair of wings – so it’s wings with a pair of wings for Kolaghan. It looks quite cool, to be honest. It’s also rumoured he’s one of five dragons in a cycle, and apparently, Fate Reforged will contain the highest dragon-per-booster ratio ever. Timmies rejoyce!

    Kolaghan looks like a fun creature. I’m existed to see what the next of the rumored cycle looks like. Oh, and dash looks like a fun mechanic, I hope it will turn up on some interesting cards.
