Battlecry: Destroy an enemy minion with Taunt.

He was sent by the Lich King to disrupt the Argent Tournament. We can pretty much mark that a failure.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Black Knight is a minion meant to start some game-ending momentum. He gets a Taunt minion out of the way so that you may begin hitting your enemy as soon as possible. As a utility, he is very good, as most people buff their best minions with Taunt so as to kill any minions that would try to attack them.

Buffs such as Mark of the Wild, Mark of Nature and Ancestral Healing can be used on an enemy minion so that The Black Knight can take it out. In Wild format, decks that have a lot of Spare Parts also have a chance to get Rusty Horn, with the combination of Rusty Horn and Black Knight producing a 7-mana Chillwind Yeti with a destroy-effect, effectively removing an enemy minion for only 3 mana.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
None shall pass.
Attack
I'm invincible!

Lore[edit | edit source]

"Enough of this insolence! Prepare to die!"

The Black Knight is seen during the Argent Tournament, the predecessor to The Grand Tournament. He is challenged to combat, and eventually defeated by champions wielding the Argent Lance.

He appears later in the Crusaders' Coliseum for a rematch with undead skin and in the process of fighting, he loses his flesh, becoming The Skeleton Knight. He later loses his bones during the fight, turning into a ghost.

From Wowpedia:

The Black Knight is an agent of the Lich King, sent to disrupt Tirion Fordring's Argent Tournament in Northrend. He can be found near the eastern end of the Argent Tournament Grounds in Icecrown.
After flying into the coliseum and slaying a herald of the crusade (either Arelas Brightstar or Jaeren Sunsworn), the Black Knight was defeated by the champions who were training there.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The name of this minion, as well as its quotes, are a reference to the character of the same name from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Voice[edit | edit source]

The Black Knight was voiced by Lance Henriksen, who also voiced Thrallmar Farseer.
