Deathrattle: If it's your opponent's turn, summon a 2/2 Ghoul.
To be honest, he was kind of a jerk even BEFORE he was bitten by that ghoul.
How to get
|Golden Arrogant Crusader||800||100|
This minion's aggressive initial stats are abysmal, equivalent to the rarely seen Ice Rager for one more mana. This card's edge comes from its sticky aftereffect, where your opponent might kill it to leave behind a 2/2. As a result, removing this from the board does not actually remove 5 attack, but only removes a net 3 attack unless they can kill the Ghoul as well.
When on the board, Arrogant Crusader is not useful for trading, since you will not receive the ghoul. Instead, Arrogant Crusader will provide a consistent 5 damage to the enemy hero until they deal with it, which characterizes this card as highly aggressive.
Overall, Arrogant Crusader isn't considered a powerful or strong card, since it is designed with an aggressive statline and Aggro Paladin has so many strong options already. The basic card Truesilver Champion is often more preferable since it has an instant effect and is harder for opponents to deal with.
This card provides light insurance against Doomsayer, since it leaves behind a 2/2 instead of nothing at all.
- Oh, I'm drop dead gorgeous.
- The name "Arrogant Crusader" may be a pun on Argent Crusader.
