Bone Drake is a rare neutral minion card, from the Knights of the Frozen Throne set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

At 6 Mana, Bone Drake's stats are rather mediocre. However, its true power is in its Deathrattle effect. While some weaker dragons do exist, most are high cost, high power cards that can turn the game in their wielder's favor.

Bone Drake works best in a Dragon-based deck, as its Deathrattle will help make sure more Dragons remain in the hand. In addition to possibly being able to generate game-ending minions, there is also the chance it can generate another Bone Drake, allowing for a continuous loop if both players run low on cards.

Bone Drake also works great in decks based around Deathrattle effects, with cards such as Spiritsinger Umbra, N'Zoth, the Corruptor/God of the Deep and Awaken the Makers. Among Neutral Deathrattle minions, Bone Drake has some of the best stats (barring Deathwing, Dragonlord or minions with negative Deathrattles like The Beast and Ticking Abomination), making it very valuable to revive with N'Zoth.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Frost wyrms, also known as frostwyrms, are the skeletal remains of adult blue dragons killed by the Scourge. These reanimated vessels of destruction do not fear death; they dispense it.
In ages past, venerable dragons nearing death flew to the land of Northrend to die. To this day there are entire dragon graveyards littered with massive petrified bones and skulls. When Ner'zhul, the Lich King, took control of Northrend, he used his powerful magics to raise the ancient dragon skeletons from the dead. These skeletal dragons radiate cold power and think of nothing other than serving their dark master.
