Core set[]

Two copies of regular Battlefiend (Core) are obtained for raising demon hunter to level 1.

Two copies of golden Battlefiend (Core) are obtained for winning 50 games as demon hunter.

Battlefiend (Core) is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[]

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.
