Baron Rivendare is a tier 5 minion in Battlegrounds game mode.

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 Piloted Sky Golem, Sneed's Old Shredder or Ghastcoiler. As a result, Baron Rivendare can be a natural fit in a Mech build running Replicating Menace and Cobalt Guardian, along with the aforementioned cards.

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.
