Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This card's Battlecry does not activate until the Drake itself has left the player's hand. However, its base Attack of 1 means the minion's resulting Attack value will be equal to the number of cards in the player's hand before the Drake is played.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This is a more aggressive version of Twilight Drake. It similarly fits in decks revolving around building a large hand. Its high Attack could be useful for Shadowflame, but probably makes it more useful as a finishing minion similar to Molten Giant or Mountain Giant. However, Midnight Drake lacks the Health of these minions, making it a poor target for Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus.

Lore[edit | edit source]

This is the corrupted version of Twilight Drake. Interestingly enough, twilight drakes themselves are already minions of the Old Gods, created by their worshippers and wielding their magic. Perhaps the Midnight Drake is an evolution of some sort, a twilight drake given more power by its masters and further blessed.

However, despite being a mutated drake, this minion more closely resembles a proto-dragon, the ancestors of modern-day dragons. The broader body, wider jaw, minuscule eyes, and scale-plates lining the top of the skull are all more typical of proto-drakes than modern drakes.
