There are some cards that has the word "destroy a friendly minion".

I was wondering does that stop deathrattle effects from firing off?

IE for example if I have a ravenous pterrordax (destroy minion to adapt twice) in my hand and I cast it on a dreadsteed (at turn end will summon another dreadsteed deathrattle). Will it prevent that deathrattle from firing off?

I am thinking of maybe trying to put dreadsteed's deathrattle to use in the new knight of the frozen throne expansion wild deck.

    As a sidenote: "destroy" cards do circumvent minions that trigger an effect when taking damage (e.g. acolyte of pain).

No it does not prevent it from going off UNLESS they are silenced.If they are silenced, deathrattle has no effect.
