Phalanx Commander was a Tier 3 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

All tribes could make use of Taunt, so Phalanx Commander had potential value in any build. Demons in particular had good access to Taunts with cards like Vulgar Homunculus and Voidlord.

However, this card didn't scale well into the late game, as its buff lost relevance over time and the minion itself lacks a tribe tag which made it difficult to buff outside of playing Tirion Fordring, so it was normally sold for more specialized cards. Furthermore, Strongshell Scavenger rendered this card obsolete at tier 5 since it provided a better, persistent buff.
