Card Mania! #6 – Twilight Drake


Read about the awesome Counterfeit Deck yet?

In today’s ‘Card Mania!’, we will be introducing the Twilight Drake, a dragon that seems weak with its 1 health.


Twilight Drakes are any one of a small number of dragons which comprise the Twilight Dragonflight, first seen in the World of Warcraft expansion Wrath of the Lich King.

The Twilight dragonflight is a dragonflight created by the results of magical experiments carried out by Sintharia upon dragon eggs. Using ancient dragon artifacts and the powers of the nether dragons, Sintharia has created a new breed of dragons that feed vampirically on all forms of mystical energy. The first encounter of these dragons with the outside world was by Krasus, Kalec, and the draenei priestess Iridi. Iridi thought of their appearance not as shadow, but more akin to the day turning to night, like twilight as experienced on Azeroth. She thus dubbed them twilight dragons.


  • Type: Minion
  • Rarity: Rare
  • Class: Any
  • Crafting Cost: 100/800 (Golden) Arcane Dust
  • Disenchant: 20/100 (Golden) Arcane Dust


The key to utilising this drake is to have a very large hand upon summoning him, which increases its health based on its Battlecry. Cards that help to increase hand size, such as the Coldlight Oracle, are useful to that end.

It is a viable card to play in the Counterfeit Deck that Kripparrian showed us. Do note that the Twlight Drake has been nerfed since the early beta period, and its attack does not scale with hand size anymore. Therefore, it should not be thought of as a late game minion in that sense. However, it does a very good job of being a mid-game beast, with its potential to stack a large amount of health onto it.


Any card that can potentially create a large hand size; Lorewalker Cho is one as he can clone the opponent’s casted spells into your hand. The Warlock class naturally synergizes with this as well.

It is bad against minions with Silence effects, like the Spellbreaker, as the Twilight Drake’s health will be reverted back to 1.

That is all for this week’s ‘Card Mania!’; let us know in the comments below on how you will play the Twlight Drake!
