Baron Rivendare (Battlegrounds)
|See other versions: Regular and BG Gold|
|Tags:||Deathrattle-related, Ongoing effect|
Your minions trigger their Deathrattles twice.
Baron Rivendare is a tier 5 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Multiple copies of Baron Rivendare do not stack. When there is a golden Rivendare, deathrattles trigger three times. When there is a plain Rivendare with no golden version, deathrattles trigger twice.
Normally, when Deathrattle minions are removed simulateously with Baron Rivendare, the Deathrattles will trigger twice.
However, there is an aura update after each summon, so the results may vary. More details can be seen in Advanced rulebook.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Baron Rivendare is one of a number of build-around cards that become available at Tavern Tier 5. His effect of doubling your minion Deathrattles means that he can represent immense value and threat if correctly protected. He has very good synergy with minions like Kaboom Bot or Selfless Hero that impact the board upon death, as his effect stacks with the Golden versions (i.e. a Golden Selfless Hero will grant two Divine Shields, but if Baron is on board, she will grant four). He also works well in builds that can benefit from token and minion summoning, such as with cards like Mechano-Egg, Sneed's Old Shredder or Ghastcoiler. As a result, Baron Rivendare can be a natural fit in a Mech build running Kangor's Apprentice and Deflect-o-Bot, along with the aforementioned cards.
Combined with Unstable Ghoul, damage would be dealt repeatedly on all minions, you can let it kill your Kaboom Bot and Kangor's Apprentice, or Rat Pack and Goldrinn, the Great Wolf, making huge value while counter opponent's strategy.
Because of his powerful effect, he is best placed in a position where he is attacked, and attacks, last, such as the far right. However, keep in mind Cleave effects (such as that of Foe Reaper 4000) and play around these accordingly.
Beware of Zapp Slywick, as, if your side contains no other 1-Attack or lower minions, Baron will immediately die to his effect. This is a noted vulnerability of builds running Baron Rivendare. He can be made significantly harder to get countered by buffing his stat in some way; tripling him, using Hero Powers or Cobalt Scalebane, or even a Steward of Time, and get a lower-attack minion like Mechano-Egg or Mecharoo to redirect Zapp.
