Drakkari Defender Reveal: Knights of the Frozen Throne

Recommended Posts

yGbXQEy.jpg

Drakkari Defender has been revealed. It is a high overload Shaman minion. It is the seventy-ninth card to be revealed.

The card was revealed by Civila123 on Twitter. 

Placeholder for tweet 893412876651683845

With such a high Overload cost, this card will be very awkard to play on Turn 3. Although it would slow down Aggro decks, your opponent would be able to fill up the board while you have only one Mana on Turn 4.

This means that for the card to work, it will either be played to defend the Shaman's own aggressive board, or played on later turns alongside another minion, for instance on Turn 6 alongside Mana Tide Totem. In Wild, this card will definitely see testing alongside Tunnel Trogg,

For a full list of previously revealed cards, as well as all of the information about the new expansion, check out our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.

The card preview is missing in the post

It's in the post, but as an embedded tweet. Which I'm guessing is being blocked by your work network.

AH, thanks alot. Wasn't worknet though, but Ghostery. SO whoever can not see the card as well, just turn off the twitterblocks.

But yeah, I guess we'll be seeing the trog again. Don't like the thought but let's just see.

Well, this is pretty hard to evaluate...I getting some flashbacks for Deathlord, though.

Both cards got a serious downside. But Deathlord was mainly a priest-card...something like this on Shaman...ahhh, I don't know! But it seems like this might see some play.

It buffes Evolve passively, though...

they keep coming up with cards that are gonna make shaman evolve decks better....because of what they turn into after evolve is used, like the above poster said...

 

i wish blizz would stop pushing these sleazy decks.

I don't know... As far as cards in the deck I think I'd rather drop a Hot Spring Guardian for roughly the same impact and have 4 mana on turn 4. It is a nice Evolve result for a basic totem, though.

 

If you mean the hero power totems, they are 1 mana minions. Though there are is flametongue and primalfin in the 2 mana slot.

Just want to point out, that you could play this on turn 4, into Eternal Sentinel on turn 5...

Or on turn 3, into on Eternal Sentinel + coin on turn 4.

Regarding Evolve...I think, what makes Evolve so strong is the combination with cards like Doppelgangster, not the card itself (I mean, it saw nearly no play before Un'goro). So I don't think that Evolve-Decks will become better...I think they might even get worse, because of all the very powerful anti-aggro-cards revealed in Knights of the Frozen Throne so far.

I think this card will actually see play in controls shaman.  This + ancestral spirit is a huge wall to get through for most aggro decks, certainly stronger then feral spirits in most control shamans, and probably stronger then hotspring (specifically because of the interaction with ancestral spirit).

There was another post where we discussed the possibility of silence coming back and, tbh, I feel like aggro really might start running it again.
