General Comments

Carrion Drake is a very powerful minion if you are able to activate the Battlecry effect. The combination of Poisonous and 7 Health on a 5-drop can easily trade into multiple enemy minions efficiently control the board.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Carrion Drake is a good choice for Midrange Hunter decks. It has very few powerful Hunter cards to compete with in the 5 Mana slot and is an excellent way to draw out removal before powerful threats like Savannah Highmane.



In Arena, Carrion Drake is a great card. It is an excellent tool for generating a card advantage over opponents and the frequent back and forth trading in Arena makes it very easy to activate the Battlecry effect.
