When and How to build Dragons in Battlegrounds

Compositions is one of the toughest aspects of Battlegrounds. We hope our composition guides to Dragons & all other tribes helps you learn.

A common problem that struggling players have is figuring out for what cards they should be looking. One of my tips on how to improve in Battlegrounds is knowing what minions you should be searching for so you know how to spend your gold. But before you can do that, you have to know the optimal builds that can win you the game. Here are the optimal end game builds as of Battlegrounds patch 21.2. The article you are reading now is part of our Compositions series for Battlegrounds. Find our guides for compositions here!

There are three builds you can do with Dragons now in Battlegrounds! 

When should you go for Kalecgos dragons?

Once you can find Kalecgos, then that’s when you start working towards the Kalecgos dragons build. Unlike before, dragons now have a decent mid-game that helps them carry onto an end-game Kalecgos build.

Mid Game Build:

Bronze Warden | Bronze Warden | Tarecgosa | Prized Promo-Drake | Tarecgosa | Whelp Smuggler | Prestor’s Pyrospawn 

The common late-game Kalecgos build: 

Kalecgos | Dragon | Dragon | Dragon | Dragon | Slot for Battlecries | Whelp Smuggler. Eventually, add Nadina to remove Whelp Smuggler.

The dragons can be anything, but Razorgore, Tarecgosa, Bronze Warden, and Prized Promo-Drake are the best to have. Whelp Smuggler gives you an extra two health with Kalecgos to help scale up even faster. Whelp Smuggler should only replace her once you have either another Kalecgos or a Nadina. Prestor’s Pyrospawn should be in your build if you are facing other builds with Divine Shield.

When should you go for Nadina/Divine Shield dragons?

This is a build you do when you are unable to find Kalecgos throughout the game. It focuses on divine shields and abilities surrounding it rather than the hard stats that Kalecgos provides.

Mid Game Build:
Glyph Guardian | Bronze Warden | Tarecgosa | Prized Promo-Drake | Tarecgosa | Drakonid Enforcer | Whelp Smuggler

The common end-game example for Nadina Dragons
Nadina the Red | Tarecgosa | Golden Prize-Promo Drake | Tarecgosa | Golden Razorgore | Golden Drakonid Enforcer | Golden Grease Bot

While you may not have the power of Kalecgos to help buff your minions, you can still find Grease Bot. If you manage to golden and taunt your Tarecgosa, you can get additional Grease Bots or Whelp Smuggler to help your scaling further. Of course, consider Prestor’s Pyrospawn when fighting other builds with divine shields.

When should you go for Whelp Smuggler dragons?

You do this build when you cannot find Kalecgos nor Nadina to help round out your build. This is a bit of a mid-game build to try and survive to get top four. However, if you are lucky, your minions could scale high enough to be unable to kill. This build is new with Patch 21.2, and it focuses on Prized Promo-Drake and Whelp Smuggler to help you get the stats you need for buffs.

Mid Game Build:
Glyph Guardian | Bronze Warden | Tarecgosa | Prized Promo-Drake | Tarecgosa | Whelp Smuggler | Whelp Smuggler

The common end-game example for Whelp Smuggler dragons: 

Golden Glyph Guardian | Razorgore | Tarecgosa | Golden Prized Promo-Drake | Tarecgosa | Golden Whelp Smuggler

The end game is just this build but golden and Kalecgos or Nadina to round it out. If you are desperate to get more stats, cards such as Arm of the Empire, Charlga, any cards that give Blood Gems, or Budding Greenthumb can help out when combined with Whelp Smuggler.
