Deathrattle: Add a random Dragon to your hand.

The bone drake brings all the dragons to the yard. He would teach you, but you have no cards.

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

How to get[edit | edit source]

Bone Drake can be obtained through Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Golden Bone Drake can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of each Ranked season.

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 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.

List of possible dragons:[edit | edit source]

Name / Desc Rarity Subtype Class Cost Atk HP Description
Faerie Dragon Common Dragon Any 2 3 2 Can't be targeted by Spells or Hero Powers. Adorable. Immune to Magic. Doesn't pee on the rug. The perfect pet!
Bone Drake Rare Dragon Any 6 6 5 Deathrattle: Add a random Dragon to your hand. The bone drake brings all the dragons to the yard. He would teach you, but you have no cards.
Book Wyrm Rare Dragon Any 6 3 6 Battlecry: If you're holding a Dragon, destroy an enemy minion with 3 Attack or less. His favorites are classic tragedies like "The Hobbit" and "Grendel".
Cobalt Scalebane Rare Dragon Any 5 5 5 At the end of your turn, give another random friendly minion +3 Attack. You get a sword! And you get a sword! Everybody gets a sword!
Drakonid Operative Rare Dragon Priest 5 5 6 Battlecry: If you're holding a Dragon, Discover a card in your opponent's deck. His job is to spy on the Goons and the Jade Lotus, but he's OBVIOUSLY a dragon so it's pretty hard work.
Midnight Drake Rare Dragon Any 4 1 4 Battlecry: Gain +1 Attack for each other card in your hand. Still fearsome in the daytime.
Twilight Drake Rare Dragon Any 4 4 1 Battlecry: Gain +1 Health for each card in your hand. Twilight drakes feed on Mystical Energy. And Tacos.
Primordial Drake Epic Dragon Any 8 4 8 Taunt
Battlecry: Deal 2 damage to all other minions. Before he became a rap artist.
Scaled Nightmare Epic Dragon Any 6 2 8 At the start of your turn, double this minion's Attack. I like it because it scales.
Alexstrasza Legendary Dragon Any 9 8 8 Battlecry: Set a hero's remaining Health to 15. Alexstrasza the Life-Binder brings life and hope to everyone. Except Deathwing. And Malygos. And Nekros.
Deathwing Legendary Dragon Any 10 12 12 Battlecry: Destroy all other minions and discard your hand. Once a noble dragon known as Neltharion, Deathwing lost his mind and shattered Azeroth before finally being defeated. Daddy issues?
Deathwing, Dragonlord Legendary Dragon Any 10 12 12 Deathrattle: Put all Dragons from your hand into the battlefield. To his credit, Deathwing really took to heart the feedback he was receiving that he needed to be "more of a team player".
Malygos Legendary Dragon Any 9 4 12 Spell Damage +5 Malygos hates it when mortals use magic. He gets so mad!
Nozdormu Legendary Dragon Any 9 8 8 Players only have 15 seconds to take their turns. Time to write some flavor text.
Onyxia Legendary Dragon Any 9 8 8 Battlecry: Summon 1/1 Whelps until your side of the battlefield is full. Onyxia long manipulated the Stormwind Court by disguising herself as Lady Katrana Prestor. You would have thought that the giant wings and scales would have been a giveaway.
Sindragosa Legendary Dragon Mage 8 8 8 Battlecry: Summon two 0/1 Frozen Champions. "I recognize your effort but I think your magic still has room for improvement." - Sindragosa after taking a class on giving constructive feedback.
Ysera Legendary Dragon Any 9 4 12 At the end of your turn, add a Dream Card to your hand. Ysera rules the Emerald Dream. Which is some kind of green-mirror-version of the real world, or something?

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.
