Faction Lyonar
Cost 3
Attack 2
Health 4
Ability Opening Gambit

Arclyte Sentinel is a Lyonar Rare Minion. He costs three cores, has two attack and four health as well as "Opening Gambit: Give ANY nearby minion +2 Attack, but -2 Health." This Opening Gambit is extremely versatile, as it kills low health enemy minions without technically dealing damage, which is important against cards such as Lantern Fox. It also gives your units more attack which can be used on your Windblade Adept to create a 6/1 minion, or even create a 4/6 with Celerity if used on a Dagger Kiri.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card only takes a one stat penalty for its effect, which is amazing considering how powerful this effect can be. Its high health also makes it a Divine Bond target in a pinch. It trades evenly with 2/3s and unfavorably with 4/3s.

Its versatility gives it a spot in many different Lyonar decks, from Control who use it as removal to Aggro who use it to buff their own minions.

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.
