Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Barrens Blacksmith provides a strong buff along with a decently sized body, but finding a way to naturally trigger the frenzy takes a bit of planning. Warrior decks have plenty of self-harm effects, including Whirlwind and Cruel Taskmaster that can damage the Barrens Blacksmith cheaply. It can be very potent to summon this minion with Overlord Saurfang, giving a strong stat buff once it is revived.
Mages can ping to activate this minion's effect with Fireblast, but this is generally considered too slow and an inefficient use of mana.
