Killer Bees

Killer Bees
[insert requisite Nicholas Cage joke here]

Time to set your wayback machines kids and head to a time when green had shades! Well, kind of. Bees shouldn't bee this deadly (pun intended)! At face value, this card may not look like much (it's a flying Frozen Shade essentially) however that fact that it's green makes it deadlier. Most green decks can easily have 3 mana on turn 2 which means you can drop this. Turn 3, after you've played your land, you can be swinging with a 4/5 flyer. That's basically a dragon except better! That's right, I just called this card better than a dragon. Why? Let's compare to Dragon Hatchling. The biggest difference (aside from the cost) is that this card gains toughness as well as power, meaning it can pump itself up to save itself from a Mutilate or even a Blasphemous Act. However, making this card big is a mana-sink, so users should be prepared to do little to nothing on their turn in order to hit hard with this card.

Pros: Shade ability, arguably the best mono-green dragon
Cons: Mana-sink
Rating: 4/5

"Dragon-bees. My god..."
