If you are interested in building a casual Dragon deck and need more Dragons, the Portal (and Starter) sets are full of some little-known gems. Here are six Dragons you may not have heard of. No, they are not tournament-legal, but if you're playing just for fun, they can really bring the hurt…

Ebon Dragon
 
Fire Dragon
Ebon Dragon
Portal rare
The art on this card, done by Donato Giancola, is one of the most popular pieces from the Portal series.
  Fire Dragon
Portal rare
Fire Dragon comes with a built-in Spitting Earth… and a hefty mana cost.
Cloud Dragon
 
Brimstone Dragon
Cloud Dragon
Portal rare
Cloud Dragon was printed as Cloud Djinn in the Weatherlight set.
  Brimstone Dragon
Portal Second Age rare
Brimstone Dragon is a bigger version of Volcanic Dragon, which appeared in Mirage and the first Portal.
Zodiac Dragon
 
Thunder Dragon
Zodiac Dragon
Portal Three Kindgoms rare
Zodiac Dragon has a built-in regrowth function like Squee, Goblin Nabob, but suffers from poor wording. (See today's Card of the Day.)
  Thunder Dragon
Starter 1999 rare
Thunder Dragon's comes-into-play ability is devastating; it can wipe out entire weenie decks in one blow.
