|Golden Argent Protector||400||50|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Argent Protector is very useful when used in conjunction with a hard hitting minion. Use Divine Shield on the minion and attack your opponent's strong minions. The Divine Shield will protect your minion from damage while your opponent's minion is damaged or destroyed. This is also very useful in conjunction with a Taunt minion. Cast Divine Shield on your Taunt minion to absorb any damage dealt to it and keep it alive, protecting you from damage.
Alternatively, this card is very useful in an aggressive paladin deck that consists of low cost, efficient creatures, of which Argent Protector is an excellent example.
It is generally considered a slightly better play to grant the Divine Shield to a minion that can make use of it that same turn, rather than allowing it to remain intact at the end of the turn. This is because when played and immediately consumed, you are dictating the use of the Divine Shield and are therefore in control of its effectiveness; while if left to the opponent it may be removed with a Silence or cheaply countered by means such as Fireblast or a weak minion attack. However, when playing a key minion, Divine Shield can be very useful for protecting it from attack until the next turn.
