A Drake is a prototype creature: 2/2 with flying for 2M.
Wind Drakes with additional abilities were highly uncommon for many years, and have only started becoming more ubiquitous with Ravnica block and the slow pushing of creature cards. With the exception of Scars block, each block since Ravnica has included one or two drakes. Although it is the least numerous of the prototype, the lead card's long career in core sets and its high value in limited have cemented its name.
Creatures that have similar evasiveness (such as Treetop Rangers) have been included in the list.
