General Comments

Arfus is the amusingly-named dog of The Lich King. Although the body is small, it has a very strong Deathrattle effect. Arfus is also a Beast, which means that it can be fetched with cards like The Curator, and buffed with Houndmaster. The Death Knight cards that Arfus can add to your hand are very powerful, and are as follows: Anti-Magic Shell, Army of the Dead, Death and Decay, Death Coil, Death Grip, Doom Pact, Frostmourne, and Obliterate.


Constructed Play

In Constructed play, Arfus is best used when it can make use of its Beast synergy as well as the Deathrattle. This means that it is best suited for slower Hunter decks, where the generated removal will often be of use. If it can synergise with N'Zoth, the Corruptor in the same deck, all the better.



Arfus is a good card in Arena. Although the card itself barely challenges the board, the removal that it creates with its Deathrattle more than makes up for it. It should be treated as a strong removal card, and you should change your evaluation of the card based on how much removal you already have.
