Strategy[edit | edit source]

Divine Shield gives the Scarlet Crusader a free extra hit. While it may seem that a 3/1 for 3 Mana is a bit expensive, she can take out fairly large threats and still stay around for another swing. In certain situations however, even with the Divine Shield her 1 Health is a big drawback, as e.g. an Unstable Ghoul that costs 2 Mana is going to trade up with the Scarlet Crusader.

A good choice for an arena deck looking to deal out damage quickly. Keep in mind that Silence will remove the shield, so if you are able to buff her, you may be able to pull one of your opponent's Silences out onto her and save your more important minions at a later point in the game.

Lore[edit | edit source]

"The Scarlet Crusade shall smite the wicked and drive evil from these lands!" - Scarlet Purifier

From Wowpedia:

The Scarlet Crusade is a religious organization dedicated to the eradication of the undead. They are a major adversary of the Forsaken, and several quests in Tirisfal Glades involve attacks on Scarlet Crusade troops, leaders, and strongholds. The Scarlet Crusade maintains several bastions throughout the former lands of Lordaeron, namely the Scarlet Monastery, and up until the Shattering, Hearthglen, Tyr's Hand, the fortified cathedral of Stratholme, and several smaller camps and watchtowers spread throughout the area.
As they wander the blasted wastes, the undead creatures who call the Plaguelands home have learned to scan the horizon continually for the crimson garb of the Scarlet Crusade. Scarlet Crusaders come from many vocations — warrior, priest, wizard, scout — but all have one obsession: the complete and utter destruction of the plagueborn creatures who have conquered and occupied their ancestral homelands. Whether a red robe, a red tabard or red lacquered armor, a Scarlet Crusader wears the bright color as a brazen declaration that the red blood of the living still flows in her veins and a beacon calling her undead foes to battles. Though often seen traveling in squads, even a lone Crusader will charge into battle with a zealous rage to destroy both the undead and any she fears may be "plagued".
