Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Rivendare's ability is not duplicated or multiplied by having more than one Baron Rivendare in play.[1]
  • The second activation of the Deathrattle is immediately after the first activation resolves, before the game moves on to resolving the next on-death trigger or Deathrattle.
  • Baron Rivendare's effect, being an aura, only appears and disappears between Phases when Aura Update (Other) runs, which is just after the Death Processing step. This means that if Baron Rivendare is summoned or stolen mid-Phase he does not start or stop doubling Deathrattles yet.[3][4] However, if he dies at the same time as a minion with a Deathrattle, the Deathrattle is not doubled. For more information on these game processes, see Advanced rulebook.
  • The two activations of the Deathrattle do not queue/resolve separately. Rather, the Deathrattle queues once, and if it resolves, the effect of the aura makes it activate twice inside of the resolution. For example, if you have Baron Rivendare and an Unearthed Raptor with many Weasel Tunneler Deathrattles on it, each Deathrattles resolves twice and does not check in between resolutions the fact that the minion's controller has changed (which would normally prevent the deathrattle from resolving).[5]

Curse of Naxxramas[edit | edit source]

Kel’Thuzad’s royal guard can be found in the Four Horsemen, each with their own twisted powers at their disposal: Lady Blameaux is a master of the shadow, able to drain the essence of life from those she encounters; Thane Korth’azz controls the destructive power of fire, and can even call forth fiery meteors from the skies; Sir Zeliek was once a paladin, so powerful in life that he can still wield the Light in death; and Baron Rivendare, once a friend of Kel'Thuzad, now continues to serve his old comrade in death with his corrupting powers and skeletal Deathcharger.[6]

World of Warcraft[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Baron Rivendare
Baron Rivendare is a powerful death knight in the service of the Lich King. Originally ruling over the city of Stratholme for the Scourge, he now leads the Four Horsemen of Naxxramas in place of Highlord Mograine.
The Four Horsemen
"The most powerful death knights within Naxxramas are the four horsemen. They represent the pinnacle of Kel'Thuzad's guard. The first, Thane Korth'azz, holds the power of flame. The next, Lady Blaumeux, calls forth the power of shadows, drawing the souls of the living into the voracious embrace. Sir Zeliek, a paladin in life, so strong in his faith, that even in undeath, the power of the light still heeds his call, smiting his foes in battle. The final death knight, Lord Mograine, was the finest warrior that the death knights had ever seen. However, after the events of Azeroth, he vanished without a trace. Kel'Thuzad has appointed Baron Rivendare in his place."
- Commander Eligor Dawnbringer
