Strategy[]

Lightforged Crusader boasts an extreme effect with an equally demanding deck-building restriction, as a deck with no neutral cards locks you out of many tech cards and otherwise useful minions. However, an extra 5 cards and a 7/7 body on the board can allow control decks to outvalue opponents and give midrange decks fuel for one more push.

You can combined a Non-Minion Deck with Lightforged Crusader for a combo with The Boomsday ProjectPrismatic Lens. This will provide some useful resources for the early to mid game.

Like One Night in KarazhanIvory Knight and LegacyLay on Hands, Lightforged Crusader can be used as a Last Resort when you run out of cards.

You can combine The League of ExplorersBrann Bronzebeard with Lightforged Crusader to get a full hand.

One of her strongest effects is to save you a total of 10 cards from your deck, some can be played on the same turn, specially the 0 cost cards. Since you will lack of tech cards, she will give you alternate ways of contour.

You should run her in a deck with LegacyHoly Wrath or The Boomsday ProjectPrismatic Lens but never with Rise of ShadowsDuel! or Scholomance AcademyCommencement. These cards will completely ruin your trades.

Any deck that runs Lightforged Crusader should undoubtedly run Descent of DragonsLightforged Zealot, another Paladin minion with the same deck-building restriction who also has a powerful Battlecry for its cost.

The Lightforged draenei are a group of draenei part of the Army of the Light and the Alliance. For untold millennia, the Army of the Light waged war against the Burning Legion throughout the Twisting Nether. The draenei most committed to their long crusade would undergo a ritual to become Lightforged, infusing their bodies with the very essence of the Holy Light. After finally achieving victory on Argus, the Lightforged draenei have undertaken a new mission: protecting Azeroth from rising threats, and helping their kin from the Alliance push back against Horde aggression. They became an allied race and pledged their loyalty to King Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngAnduin Wrynn.
