Description[edit | edit source]
Opening Gambit: Give ANY nearby minion +2 Attack, but -2 Health
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- Since this card modifies a minion's base health, it can circumvent effects that trigger from taking damage (Soulburn Obelysk, Nimbus, Rawr, Lantern Fox, Battle Panddo, etc).
- Arclyte Sentinel's effect can be dispelled. See Lasting Judgement.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Frequently but not universally played, Arclyte Sentinel is a worthy removal option for Lyonar. Effectively, this card deals two damage to a minion, efficently dealing with cards such as Abyssal Crawler, Gloomchaser, Ki Beholder and Cannon of MECHAZ0R (to name a few). In addition, Arclyte Sentinel's statline is quite serviceable. It receives buffs such as Roar, Afterblaze, and even Divine Bond well. Along with its removal capability, Arclyte Sentinel can be used to push additional damage onto the enemy General by applying its effect on a friendly minion. Further, it can transform minions with weak attack values but strong health pools (e.g Ironcliffe Guardian, Bonereaper, Suntide Maiden, Eclipse) into more threatening bodies. Its respectable removal ability, usable statline and buff potential makes Arclyte Sentinel a strong candidate for any Lyonar deck.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- So far two cards share the "Arclyte" name, Arclyte Sentinel and Arclyte Regalia. Both of which are Lyonar cards and share a yellow coloring scheme.
