Strategy[edit | edit source]
This card is designed to be used in decks that run many Divine Shield minions. Divine Shield and 7 Health makes him very durable for his cost, but his low base Attack makes him a weak card on his own. It is best played on a board with multiple friendly undamaged Divine Shield minions or keep him protected behind Divine Shield Taunt minions like Righteous Protector plus enemy minions to trade with, potentially strengthening Bolvar quite a lot for a 5-cost minion. Even one other broken Divine Shield gives enough value for his cost. Note that Bolvar's own Divine Shield will also strengthen him, similarly to a card with Enrage, making him dangerous to leave on the board for too long, especially if the user can place more Divine Shields on him.
Gift of Luminance gives you a Round Two and potentially +4 Attack for each Bolvar.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- Highlord Bolvar Fordragon was a venerated paladin of the Alliance and served as the Regent of Stormwind following the disappearance of King Varian Wrynn. Upon Varian's return, Bolvar was named the commander of the Alliance forces sent to take the battle to the Scourge in Northrend. After the treachery of Grand Apothecary Putress at the Battle of Angrathar the Wrathgate, Bolvar was killed by the Forsaken Blight and reanimated by the flames of the red dragonflight.
- Bolvar's body was altered by the dragons' flame, and was taken by the Scourge into Icecrown Citadel, where he was tortured by the Lich King in an attempt to bend him to his will. However, the noble spirit of Bolvar resisted the Lich King's depravations. After the death of Arthas Menethil, the mortal host of the Lich King, Bolvar demanded that Tirion Fordring place the Helm of Domination, containing all of the powers of the Scourge, on Bolvar's head so that he would forever be the jailer of the damned - imprisoning the Lich King within the Frozen Throne once more and containing the threat of the Scourge.
