Strategy[]

While Silver Vanguard's stats are pitiful for its cost, it has an enormously powerful Deathrattle, allowing it to Recruit an 8-Cost minion. When including Silver Vanguard in your deck, you want to make sure you include 8-Cost minions that would benefit from being summoned straight from the deck; while minions with a positive Battlecry like Journey to Un'GoroTortollan Primalist and Journey to Un'GoroKalimos, Primal Lord would decrease in value, those with persistent effects such as Knights of the Frozen ThroneThe Lich King and Knights of the Frozen ThroneRotface, or even those with negative Battlecries like Journey to Un'GoroCharged Devilsaur would be more beneficial. Be wary of Silence effects, as they will render Silver Vanguard nearly worthless. Journey to Un'GoroSpiritsinger Umbra and Whispers of the Old GodsN'Zoth, the Corruptor synergize fantastically with her.

Silver Vanguard can be used to create a nearly infinite loop with Rastakhan's RumbleDa Undatakah. If Da Undatakah is given the Deathrattles of Rastakhan's RumbleImmortal Prelate and this card and you have two copies, it will repeatedly resummon itself until there are no more copies processing death sequence. This can be used to generate huge amounts of armor with Kobolds & CatacombsPlated Beetle or/and deal high damage to your opponent with LegacyLeper Gnome.
