General Comments

Gonk the Raptor is a powerful Legendary that synergises with the various Druid hero-Attack buffs available. On the surface, the card is a great way to get extra value from your hero to help clear the board. However, if you are able to get multiple copies of Gonk onto the board, such as with Faceless Manipulator, it is possible to gain multiple extra hero attacks for every minion killed to create powerful OTK combos.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Gonk the Raptor is used in specialized decks that summon multiple copies of Gonk to create powerful OTK combos.



In Arena, Gonk the Raptor is a below average card. The Arena draft system makes it difficult to get enough cards to synergise with Gonk and it should only be valued as a 7 Mana 4/9 as a result.
