Strategy[edit | edit source]

Although 3 mana for 3 cards seems at first powerful, Rogues have the least number of Dragons available to them and generally don't favour playing large minions. As such, the activation can be harder to trigger than it first appears. Rogues can play some smaller Dragons such as Marsh Drake and Faerie Dragon, alleviating this issue in part.

Candle Breath can be used in a Highlander Rogue deck as simply a 6 mana draw 3. While that seems inefficient compared to Sprint, it can potentially high roll when combined with Draconic Lackey, possibly a Dragon's Hoard, or an early Dragonqueen Alexstrasza in the hand. This gives it some extra flexibility.

Preparation can reduce its cost to 1 or even 4 without dragons in your hand.
