General Comments

Silver Vanguard is a slow card that can be used to great effect under the right circumstances. The ability to Recruit an 8-Cost minion from the Deathrattle effect opens up powerful combinations with cards like Faceless Manipulator, however in most situations the initial cost of 7 Mana for a 3/3 minion is too slow for the card to be worth playing.


Constructed Play

Silver Vanguard is generally too slow to be considered for Constructed play.



In Arena, Silver Vanguard is a very weak card. Most Arena drafts will only have a couple of high-cost minions, which are not always guaranteed to be 8 Mana to synergise with the Deathrattle effect. Additionally, tempo is incredibly important in Arena and the initial 7-Mana investment for a 3/3 minion will be far too slow to play most of the time.
