Argent Squire

Table of Contents

Argent Squire is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained from expert 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

Argent Squire is a strong 1-drop minion that can be a good starting point for your Mana curve. Many 1-drop minions are very fragile, and can be removed extremely easily. Argent Squire's Divine Shield however, means that it will usually require two attacks to remove, meaning it will quite often stick to the board long enough to be buffed or make a favourable trade.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Argent Squire can be used in decks that aim to flood the board with lots of small minions, and then use buff effects to create an advantage. It can also be powerful as an Anti-Aggro tech card in a Control or Midrange deck, but it has been outclassed in this regard by the addition of cards like Zombie Chow and Haunted Creeper to the game.

3. Arena

In Arena, Argent Squire can be a reasonable pick since it is difficult to remove from the board for its Mana cost. However, 1 power is extremely low impact, and you will often find your Argent Squire unable to trade with anything effectively. If your Arena deck contains multiple buff effects already, you can consider picking Argent Squire more highly.
