Arrogant Crusader is a Paladin-only minion. This card was introduced with Knights of the Frozen Throne and can now only be obtained through crafting. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.


General Comments

The idea behind Arrogant Crusader is that you get to choose your trades. Your opponent will not be keen to trade into it because of the Deathrattle. This means that you can either pick a good trade, or use the high Attack value to inflict a lot of damage. The downside is that due to the low Health, your opponent may be able to trade a very small minion into the Crusader, and not lose much to the Deathrattle value.


Constructed Play

In Constructed play, this card is not strong enough to merit inclusion. The downside for your opponent when they kill it is not game-changing enough to promote Arrogant Crusader above more consistent cards such as Truesilver Champion.



In Arena, this is an above-average card. It will usually be able to kill either one big minion, or two small ones, which is a good deal for 4 Mana. The downside is that your opponent gets to choose which of those options happens, and so you will almost always get the worst one. Arrogant Crusader can also push face damage if you can protect it or buff it.
