Battlegrounds Compositions Hearthstone

When and How to build Demons in Battlegrounds

Compositions are one of the toughest aspects of Battlegrounds. We hope our guides to Demons & all other tribes help you learn.

A common problem that struggling players have is figuring out for what cards they should be looking. One of my tips on how to improve in Battlegrounds is knowing what minions you should be searching for so you know how to spend your gold. But before you can do that, you have to know the optimal builds that can win you the game. Here are the optimal end game builds as of Battlegrounds patch 21.2. The article you are reading now is part of our Compositions series for Battlegrounds. Find our guides to all other compositions here.

There are three builds you can do with the Demons tribe. One focuses on Wrath Weaver, another focuses on Soul Juggler, and the final utilizes the new tier-six minion: Famished Felbat.

When should you go for Wrath Weaver Build?

Wrath Weavers is a build where you want to play as many demons as you can per turn to make multiple minions scale higher. Wrath Weaver is an investment that not only uses your health but also needs you to buy constant demons to keep strong. While incredibly powerful, you need many Demons to make sure you can keep your strength up. I would normally go for the build once I have an early enough Wrath Weaver to keep playing demons. Afterward, it is all about getting the ride demons to scale more than just Wrath Weaver.

Mid Game Build:

Wrath Weaver | Wrath Weaver | Imprisoner | Icky Imp | Bigfernal | Impatient Doomsayer | Acolyte of C’Thun

The common late-game build:
Golden Wrath Weaver | Golden Impfernal | Insatiable Ur’zhul | Voidlord | Voidlord | Imp Mama | Kathra’natir

You are trying to play as many demons as you can to buff up Wrath Weaver, Bigfernal, and Insatiable Ur’zhul. Cards like Impatient Doomsayer and Soul Devourer are important to have constant free scaling. Famished Felbat and Selfless Hero are other important cards that can make your build stronger. While Famished Felbat is important, this build focuses more on early power and fast scaling minions. Always keep one extra slot in your Warband to keep buffing your Bigfernal, Wrath Weaver, or Insatiable Ur’zhul.

When should you go for Soul Juggler Build?

This build is much more powerful in the mid-game than the other builds and just as easy, but it falls off significantly harder than the rest. Until you get something like an Insatiable Ur’zhul, Bigfernal, or Famished Felbat, then you won’t be able to scale into the late game.

Mid Game Build:
Imprisoner | Imprisoner | Acolyte of C’Thun | Icky Imp | Soul Juggler | Soul Juggler | Impatient Doomsayer

The common late-game build: 

Golden Bigfernal | Insatiable Ur’zhul | Voidlord | Voidlord | Ring Matron | Imp Mama | Golden Soul Juggler

The difficulty with this build is having your minions be destroyed in an ideal way so that you have enough board space for your deathrattles. Not only that, but you have to make sure your Soul Jugglers do not get sniped by Zapp Slywick. Once again, this build falls off once your opponent has enough stats to eat up your shots from Soul Juggler.

When should you go for the Famished Felbat Demons Build?

The Famished Felbat Demons composition focuses on making all of the demons on your build strong and scaled-up. The problem with this build is that you need Famished Felbat early enough to get proper scaling. Once you get enough triples from a card like Impatient Doomsayer, you should find a Famished Felbat and Insatiable Ur’zhul to help scale your minions fast.

Mid-game Build: 

Imprisoner | Imprisoner | Icky Imp |  Acolyte of C’Thun | Acolyte of C’Thun | Impatient Doomsayer | Impatient Doomsayer

The common late-game build:
Golden Taunted Impulsive Trickster | Golden Self-less Hero | Famished Felbat | Golden Bigfernal | Golden Insatiable Ur’zhul | Imp Mama | Baron Rivendare

Optionally you can have a Soul Devourer in your build so you can continue to recycle demons for Ur’zhul and Bigfernal safely. The one downside to this build is that Baron Rivendare may take the buffs from your deathrattles, so consider buffing Baron with Blood Gems if possible. Alternatively, you can replace Baron Rivendare with Monstrous Macaw or Poisons. Worth remembering is that when you find Famished Felbat, you should try and reach Tavern-Tier Six to buff all your Demons.
