Strategy[edit | edit source]
Lightforged Crusader boasts an extreme effect with an equally demanding deck-building restriction, as a deck with no neutral cards locks you out of many tech cards and otherwise useful minions. However, an extra 5 cards and a 7/7 body on the board can allow control decks to outvalue opponents and give midrange decks fuel for one more push.
You can combined a Non-Minion Deck with Lightforged Crusader for a combo with Prismatic Lens. This will provide some useful resources for the early to mid game.
You can combine Brann Bronzebeard with Lightforged Crusader to get a full hand.
Maybe Lightforged Crusader's strongest effect is to give options for you to save some cards from hand and deck. You may get an extra Avenging Wrath, Shirvallah, the Tiger, or, you may get an useless combination, but even if your extra cards doesn't fit in your deck, you have 5 free cards to play, and, at least one will have a good impact
Any deck that runs Lightforged Crusader should undoubtedly run Lightforged Zealot, another Paladin minion with the same deck-building restriction who also has a powerful Battlecry for its cost.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- The Lightforged draenei are a group of draenei part of the Army of the Light and the Alliance. For untold millennia, the Army of the Light waged war against the Burning Legion throughout the Twisting Nether. The draenei most committed to their long crusade would undergo a ritual to become Lightforged, infusing their bodies with the very essence of the Holy Light. After finally achieving victory on Argus, the Lightforged draenei have undertaken a new mission: protecting Azeroth from rising threats, and helping their kin from the Alliance push back against Horde aggression. They became an allied race and pledged their loyalty to King Anduin Wrynn.
