Monstrous Macaw is a Tier 3 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Monstrous Macaw is the centerpiece of Beast builds that rely on Goldrinn, the Great Wolf. With Goldrinn, a swing with Macaw gives an enormous amount of stats to all your Beasts, which can be combined with Baron Rivendare for an even larger boost (and this can be further increased if Macaw, Goldrinn, and/or Rivendare are made Golden). A build with Macaws, Goldrinn, Rivendare, and a few other Beasts like Cave Hydra can easily overpower most other compositions short of Murlocs with Poisonous.

It is recommended that Goldrinn not be given Taunt, as that creates a risk of Goldrinn dying before Macaw can attack. Instead, an unimportant Beast should be given Taunt to protect the Macaw and Goldrinn (any non-Deathrattle Taunt minion will do, but a Beast is preferred since it can get buffed by Goldrinn).

In the mid-game, Macaw is a decent pickup should you have Deathrattles that do not spawn minions, such as those of Spawn of N'Zoth, Selfless Hero, and Kaboom Bot. However, Monstrous Macaw synergizes poorly with Deathrattles that spawn minions.
