Strategy[edit]

Abusive Sergeant is a staple of aggro decks, granting an unexpected damage boost that can help kill an opponent or their defences without warning. As its Battlecry effect only lasts until the end of the turn, it would be wise to apply the +2 Attack bonus to a creature who can do the maximum amount of damage during that turn while trying to minimize loss in short term and long term scenarios. This works especially well on creatures with Windfury as they are able to deal their Attack damage twice (including Abusive Sergeant's Battlecry bonus), essentially doubling the potential damage gained from this effect. Abusive Sergeant is useful for giving Attack to 0 Attack minions that normally could not attack, like Nerubian Egg.

The Attack bonus can also provide more uses beyond increasing the damage output of your minions. Crazed Alchemist and Reversing Switch can swap the temporary +2 Attack into a permanent +2 Health. Similarly, Void Terror can be used to permanently add the +2 Attack to its own stats. Targeting enemy minions with the Attack bonus can make them targets of cards like Big Game Hunter or Shadow Word: Death.

Quotes[edit]

Summon
Get in there and fight, maggot!
Attack
Suffer my wrath!
