General Comments

The Divine Shield on Argent Squire means that it is a great 1-drop in decks that contain buffs. Such decks often require minions to stick around for as long as possible, and the fact that Argent Squire needs to be hit twice to die means that the owner can usually build up a wide board reasonably easily if the Squire is played on Turn 1.


Constructed Play

Argent Squire is particularly good in decks with multiple buffs, or decks which rely on going very wide. This means that it often goes in Zoo variants, which buff using Dire Wolf Alpha or Defender of Argus, or in cheap Paladin decks which use Blessing of Kings. Since the release of Knights of the Frozen Throne, Argent Squire also finds a home in decks which include Corpsetaker.



Argent Squire's worth in Arena is very variable, depending on the rest of your deck. If you have several buff effects, or cards that synergise with Divine Shield, then Argent Squire can be a strong card. With no backup at all, then it is reasonably weak. As a first pick, it is a little above average. As the Squire is not strong enough to build an entire deck around, taking it early leaves you at the mercy of your draft to some extent.
