|Golden Coldarra Drake||1600||400|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- This card's ongoing effect refreshes its controller's Hero Power at Aura Update (Health/Attack) timing.
- Example: Whatever the mean you used to get a Coldarra Drake under your control (by playing it, or by a summon, mind control or transform effect), it will refresh your Hero Power during the following Aura Update steps, and will stop doing so as soon as you lose control of it (for example by being killed, returned to the hand or mind controlled).
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Coldarra Drake synergizes very well with Justicar Trueheart and Genn Greymane making the pair a formidable late-game duo, especially if one lacks card draw. However, it is worth noting that Justicar Trueheart and Genn Greymane shouldn't be played in the same deck, since Justicar overrides the cost reduction from Genn. Fallen Hero can be used as an alternative if the two damage Hero Power is still wanted with Genn.
A somewhat risky play would be to combine this card with Majordomo Executus' Deathrattle, allowing you to deal up to 40 damage in one turn through repeated use of DIE, INSECT!. You could further combine this Maiden of the Lake, allowing you to deal up to 80 damage in one turn, albeit in a random manner. Such a large amount of damage, however, will likely lead to victory. Additionally, Secrets like Ice Block will allow you to survive after transforming, and give you a turn to play a card like Alexstrasza, which will raise your survivability considerably.
Lore[edit | edit source]
- Coldarra is an island just off the coast of the Borean Tundra in Northrend, and is home to the Dragon Aspect of Magic — Malygos. He is known to gather relics of great power, keeping them locked away from mortals in his lair, the Nexus. Frozen orcs, naga, trolls, and wendigos that had dared to enter the sanctity of Malygos' lair can be found throughout the island. They remain frozen, like statues, as a warning to those who would venture into the dragon's lair.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "War of the Elements" series, for the card Azure Drake.
