Strategy[edit | edit source]
Drakkari Defender has very high stats for a card that can be played at 3 Mana, but with an Overload cost of 3, it massively hinders your next turn. Its high health on curve means that is can be very effective at slowing down some aggressive decks. It can also be held and played on a later turn, where the Overload effect is less detrimental, to protect valuable minions such as Mana Tide Totem.
In Standard, Drakkari Defender lacks synergy to make the most of it's downside, however, in Wild, it has strong synergy with Tunnel Trogg, as it both buffs it and protects it from direct attacks. Its hefty Overload cost also helps with upgrading a Sapphire Spellstone.
In Arena, Drakkari Defender can be played to protect valuable minions, or to help defend important minions from trade when setting up lethal. It is weak in the early game, however, as the overload is very restrictive to your ability to play minions on curve. It should be considered as a 6-drop when drafting.
