Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As with all healing-related triggered effects, attempting to restore Health to the player's hero when they are already at full health will not trigger Blackguard's effect.[1]
  • This card's effect is triggered immediately after the healing is applied.
    • As a result, when you attack an enemy minion with Truesilver Champion, Blackguard's effect will trigger before your hero attacks the minion. If the targeted minion is destroyed by the Blackguard's effect, the attack is cancelled while retaining the healing and Durability of Truesilver Champion, allowing you to attack again.[2]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Blackguard synergizes well with cards that heal your hero such as Ivory Knight, Truesilver Champion or Lifesteal minions. Cards that deal damage while healing your hero such as Chillblade Champion can help keep the opponent's board predictably under control.

Though its 3 Attack is low for its Mana Cost, its 9 Health is more than enough to survive multiple enemy attacks.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
My torture continues.
Attack
