Previous availability[]

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

  • Two copies of Bloodfen Raptor were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the hunter class.
  • Two Golden copies of Bloodfen Raptor were a reward for raising a hunter to levels 57 and 58.

Strategy[]

Bloodfen Raptor is a basic 2-mana Beast minion ideal for basic hunter decks, due to their synergy with Beasts. It's a slightly more aggressive version of LegacyRiver Crocolisk. The League of Explorers card The League of ExplorersHuge Toad is a strictly superior option due to its useful Deathrattle. For hunters, the Grand Tournament card The Grand TournamentKing's Elekk and the Journey to Un'Goro card Journey to Un'GoroCrackling Razormaw also provide strictly better options as they have the same stats, cost and minion type as Bloodfen Raptor, but with an added effect.

The Bloodfen Raptor is not generally recommended for non-Beast-synergy decks, with cards such as LegacyAcidic Swamp Ooze, LegacyFaerie Dragon, LegacySightless Watcher and Goblins vs GnomesRecombobulator offering additional abilities with the same stats for the same cost.
