There is a common misconception even among some necromancers that even skeletons who were mages in past life can't use magic after death. It's only partly true - although skeletons indeed don't able to create their own spells, they still can handle necromancy spell whereby they were ressurected. While deathblades change the structure of their own skeletons, draugs can control bones of other skeletons, absorbing it and creating durable bone armor around its body. Even a small number of mighty, almost invulnerable draugs could contend with whole army. Since the days before founding of wesnoth draugs considered as strategic asset of undead armies and their number is value which shows significance of their master.
