Dragon form does a truckload of damage. Base damage is something like 18+2/3Str + UC. So in the late game you can have it be somewhere in the range of 40-50, and that's pretty obscene.

I think giving just a destruction deck is a pretty good idea. Asterion has major destruction, which is a variety of effects that players would know if they play Makhleb. Players would similarly know Sabin's if they play Nemelex. I don't see how that is that different.
