Say what you like about my hatchet-headed hooligan, he’s my battle-friend.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A strong aggressive minion, particularly for demon hunters. With one attack buff, Battlefiend becomes equivalent to Blazing Battlemage or Enchanted Raven with the potential to keep growing. Battlefiend curves into Umberwing, allowing for a high-tempo opener.

If you're playing against a demon hunter, it's a good idea to mulligan for cheap removal like Holy Smite and Arcane Breath. This prevents the Battlefiend from snowballing too quickly.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Battlefiend is a Vilefiend.

From Wowpedia:

Vilefiends (or simply fiends) are a type of demon found on Argus. They are infused with acidic blood through a terrifying ritual.
