The Dragon trait is like any other trait, in that they are "text designators that, while carrying no rules in themselves, may be affected by other cards in play." (Rulebook, pg 4)

The only card in the Core set that interacts with the Dragon trait is the Qartheen Fanatic. (Dance With Dragons does too but only for cards with the Dragon trait printed on the card)

Cards outside of the Core set that interact with the Dragon trait are:
Dragon Bite
Dragon Attack
The Dragon's Fire
Balerion the Black

Dragon Attack: Blood of the Dragon only gives its attached character the dragon trait while participating in a challenge, so you could not kneel the character with this card as it would already have had to kneel to be eligible, if you see what I mean.


There are ways around that, like Distinct Mastery or Mercenary Contract.

Balerion the Black: Similarly, this card would force Blood of the Dragon to kneel as it could only avoid the effect if it had already kneeled.


That is correct 99.9% of the time. It is, however, actually possible to engineer a situation where Blood of the Dragon would protect from Balerion, using Shadow Politics.

4-2 is extremely close in this game, so much so that it is rare for anyone to even count that as "losing" unless the board position is overwhelming (and even then if you are only finishing up the second turn, a reset could easily readjust the board).

When it gets 10-4 then you have a problem... and there are some control decks in constructed that can see that state 40% of the time they play and still pull out the win more often than not.

The game is moderately involved in the learning how to play, but very intricate when it comes to what can be played and what should be played now.
