They're cool, they're powerful, but are they too slow? Pioneer may not be as fast as Modern, but four and five-mana threats are a tough sell against combo decks like Dimir Inverter and Lotus Breach.

That's no problem when you're playing black! Thoughtseize and Kolaghan's Command slow down any opposing strategy, and Fatal Push and Draconic Roar ensure you don't get overrun before your scaly fliers take the field. This deck 5-0'd a recent Pioneer League, and in Meryn's matches it looks like the real deal.
