Defender of Argus is a tier 4 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Defender of Argus has two distinctions: it is one of the few minions that can buff any minion (particularly tribeless minions) in Battlegrounds, and it gives all strategies access to Taunt. The two benefits are often mutually exclusive since many tribeless support minions shouldn't be given Taunt, but the ability to build any minion into a tank should not be ignored, especially with Strongshell Scavenger available on the next tier. Overall, this card's ability to give Taunt is much more significant than its stat buff, though stacking it on Taunt minions may be acceptable if you have nothing better to spend coins on and have Brann Bronzebeard in play.
