Furyborn Hellkite is one of the newest Magic cards to be revealed from Wizards of the Coast’s upcoming Magic: the Gathering 2012 Core Set. Revealed in a recent tweet by Aaron Forsythe (@mtgaaron), M12’s Furyborn Hellkite is the largest red dragon to be printed, provided that you’ve damaged your opponent earlier in the turn.
Furyborn Hellkite – 4RRR
Creature – Dragon (Mythic Rare)
Bloodthirst 6 (If an opponent was dealt damage this turn, this creature enters the battlefield with six +1/+1 counters on it.)
“Careful. A drop of blood here means death for us all.”
-Kalek, mountain guide
Furyborn Hellkite from M12 begs comparison to Ancient Hellkite. For the same cost you’re sacrificing an ability that can make some serious card advantage for a giant Dragon. You’ll have to throw a Lightning Bolt, or damage your opponent in an attack from another creature first though, thanks to Furyborn Hellkite’s use of Bloodthirst.
M12’s Furyborn Hellkite might be big, and with a little ramp it could ome out as early – however with other cheaper options such as Moltensteel Dragon available is Furyborn Hellkite worth it?
Yes. For just one more mana than M12’s Flameblast Dragon, Furyborn Hellkite is a creature that must be dealt with NOW. If your opponent doesn’t have a Dispatch, Go for the Throat, Corrupted Conscience, or another way of removing Furyborn Hellkite they’ll be in for a huge world of hurt.
