Previous availability[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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 River Crocolisk. The League of Explorers card Huge Toad is a strictly superior option due to its useful Deathrattle. For hunters, the Grand Tournament card King's Elekk and the Journey to Un'Goro card Crackling 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 Acidic Swamp Ooze, Faerie Dragon, Sightless Watcher and Recombobulator offering additional abilities with the same stats for the same cost.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Raptors are one of the most iconic beasts of the Warcraft universe and can be found both in Azeroth and Outland. Bloodfen Raptors are tameable level 35-36 mobs found in Dustwallow Marsh.
