Dragon Speculation

Before I get to more Alara art spoilers, I did want to revisit the soon-to-be-released From the Vault : Dragons product due out on 29th August. As mentioned briefly in this post, this collectors set will feature 15 of the most popular dragons from MTG's past printed on new unique foil stock. Six of the fifteen cards will feature new artwork and most of the cards will have new flavour text.

Here is the list of the dragons we have so far . .
1. Bogarden Hellkite
2. Form of the Dragon (actually an enchantment)
3. Hellkite Overlord
4. Kokusho, the Evening Star
5. Niv Mizzet
6. Nocol Bolas
7. Rith the Awakener
8. Shivan Dragon
9. Thunder Dragon
10. Two-headed Dragon

Last Friday, Mark Purvis with WoTC treated us to a sneak peek of 7 of the cards . . .

Form of the Dragon
At the beginning of your upkeep, Form of the Dragon deals 5 damage to target creature or player. / At the end of each turn, your life total becomes 5. / Creatures without flying can't attack you.

Kokusho, the Evening Star
Legendary Creature - Dragon Spirit 5/5
Flying / When Kokusho, the Evening Star is put into a graveyard from play, each opponent loses 5 life. You gain life equal to the life lost this way.

Rith, the Awakener
Legendary Creature - Dragon 6/6
Flying / Whenever Rith, the Awakener deals combat damage to a player, you may pay 2{G}. If you do, choose a color. Put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token into play for each permanent of that color.

Shivan Dragon
Creature - Dragon 5/5
Flying / {R} : Shivan Dragon gets +1/+0 until end of turn.

Thunder Dragon
