General Comments

Emberscale Drake is a strong Dragon that synergises with many Warrior cards. It is a cheaper version of Shieldmaiden, but requires Dragon synergy to activate its Battlecry. While there is some risk that Battlecry may not trigger, the card is still very playable as a 5 Mana 5/5.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Emberscale Drake is an essential card for all forms of Dragon Warrior.



In Arena, Emberscale Drake is an average card. It is very unlikely you will have the Dragon synergy available for the Battlecry to activate and even if you do, Armor is almost worthless in Arena. However, a 5 Mana 5/5 is still very reasonable.
