Strategy

Ossified Drone is a one-supply legendary unit that gives the Abilityclickable Ability to convert ordinary Drones into additional Ossified Drones for the cost of one Red resourcered. In doing so you gain an additional point of HealthHealth and the ability to Blockerblock while still gaining 1Goldgold as you do not need to click them (unlike base Drones that need to be harvested).

Ossified Drone's low cost makes it easy to integrate early in your build. If you find yourself with 2GoldRed resource leftover at the end of your turn, you can invest in the first one, and from that point on it will act as an efficient sink for any Red resourcered that would otherwise be wasted. Ossified Drone is not effective for single Animus builds, as buying these means slow Attack ramp.

The best use of Ossified Drone is against threat that the opponent doesn't necessarily want to follow through on, such as Frostbite or Drake, as it will augment your defense while still producing gold each turn, much like Xeno Guardian and its attack. If you already own some Ossified Drone your opponent will have to build a lot more threatened Attackattack or Chillchill before you have to actively defend against it, especially since you should continue to produce Ossified Drones each turn in this kind of game.

Another situation[1] is the one described by Will Ma. If you have Rhinos, you want them to attack before dying and you can let them do so if you have Ossified Drone to make it up for your defense.

As Ossified Drone is a legendary unit that can only be purchased once, you never want to lose the last Ossified Drone you have on the field if you plan to convert more base Drones in the future.

You should also be careful about using Ossified Drone together with other units consuming Drones, as you could end up reducing your base Drone count faster than you'd want.
