Exploding Bloatbat — Hunter Card

Table of Contents

Exploding Bloatbat is a Hunter-only minion. This card can be obtained from Knights of the Frozen Throne packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Exploding Bloatbat is a weak minion with a very strong AoE effect. Although the AoE effect is strong, it is attached to the Deathrattle effect of a minion which allows opponents to preemptively manipulate the board so that they take the least possible damage from the effect. Additionally, as it is best when played when an opponent already has many minions on board, it can be too slow as each minion gains an additional turn to inflict significant damage.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Exploding Bloatbat does not fit directly into any existing Hunter deck. As Hunter is naturally a very proactive class, AoE effects are generally not required as the board should already be under control. However, if Hunter successfully becomes a Control class, Exploding Bloatbat is a very reasonable choice.

3. Arena

In Arena, Exploding Bloatbat is a good card. AoE and removal cards of any cards are highly desirable in Arena. Although this is unlikely to get huge value due to the delay on the Deathrattle effect, it still forces inefficient plays out of opponents and carries minimal risk as the Deathrattle only damages enemy minions.
