|Abilities:||Gain Armor, Summon|
Gain 8 Armor. Summon a random 8-Cost minion.
Don't ask about his right hand. He's still growing into it.
How to get[edit | edit source]
Cenarion Ward can be obtained through Madness at the Darkmoon Faire card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Regular Cenarion Ward can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of a Ranked season.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
Cenarion Ward provides a large amount of armor and a threat on the board. It's a great card to secure the game after stabilizing against an Aggro deck. There is some variance to the minion you summon, but generally the minion you summon will help make up for some of the tempo loss from paying 8 mana. Cenarion Ward also works well with Strongman and Anubisath Defender, putting out 0-mana Taunt minions with whatever you summoned.
Paired with Solar Eclipse, the card gives a monstrous 16 armor while summoning two 8-cost minions.
Possible summons[edit | edit source]
|Name / Desc||Rarity||Subtype||Class||Cost||Atk||HP||Description|
Taunt I dare you to attack Darnassus.
Taunt. Battlecry: Gain +2/+2 for each other friendly minion. We reserve the right to refuse service to any 1/1.
Battlecry: Deal 5 damage. PIT! Not PET!
Deathrattle: Summon a random 7-Cost minion. "What’s in the drake?! WHAT’S IN THE DRAKE?"
Can't attack heroes. Yet, you still feel attacked.
Battlecry: Deal 4 damage to two random enemy minions. They can never agree on whether it's too hot or too cold.
Lifesteal, Rush, Windfury The weirdest part is that it doesn't have legs.
Whenever you cast a spell, gain +2/+2. Likes her magic with a pinch of salt.
|Coilfang Warlord||Rare||General||Demon Hunter||8||9||5|
Deathrattle: Summon a 5/9 Warlord with Taunt. Prepare for the staunch conch launch!
Deathrattle: Summon a 5/5 Dreadlord with Lifesteal. Photo actually taken across the street in the reflection of a doorknob.
|Hulking Overfiend||Rare||Demon||Demon Hunter||8||5||10|
Rush. After this attacks and kills a minion, it may attack again. To hulk, perhaps, to fiend: ay, there's the rub.
Battlecry: Summon a copy of this minion. Also known as an ancient copy machine.
At the end of your turn, summon two 3/3 Ruffians that attack random enemies. "Prepare for trouble!" "Make it double!"
Rush. After this attacks and kills a minion, it may attack again. When it comes to problem-solving, he always uses his head.
Costs 1 less for each time your hero's Health changed during your turns. "A BIG mistake."
Costs (1) less for each card you've played this game that didn't start in your deck. Spell more and save more with a GIANT discount!
Battlecry: Discover a spell in your deck and cast it with random targets. A tortollan made it to the desert!
Your minions with Windfury have Mega-Windfury. And your minions with mega-windfury get... dizzy.
|Al'Akir the Windlord||Legendary||Elemental||Shaman||8||3||5|
Windfury, Charge, Divine Shield, Taunt He is the weakest of the four Elemental Lords. And the other three don't let him forget it.
Battlecry: Summon a random Demon from your hand and deck. One of the demons will do all the work while the other gets the same grade.
Battlecry: Summon 3 Beasts from your hand. Father of Rexxar, Champion of the Horde, and Flexxar, Champion of the Gym.
At the end of your turn, summon a friendly minion that died this game. She always manages to lift your spirits.
|Deathwing, Mad Aspect||Legendary||Dragon||Warrior||8||12||12|
Battlecry: Attack ALL other minions. Bite that one, bite that other one, claw this one, swallow that one whole....
Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, summon King Krush. Brann's new dino-taming hobby is going well—his pet can already make him sit, stand, and roll over!
|Fel Lord Betrug||Legendary||Demon||Warlock||8||5||7|
Whenever you draw a minion, summon a copy with Rush that dies at end of turn. Nobody else likes rush hour.
|G'huun the Blood God||Legendary||General||Priest||8||8||8|
Battlecry: Draw 2 cards. They cost Health instead of Mana. All of the other Old Gods used to laugh and call him names. They never let poor G'huun join in any Old God games.
Has +6 Attack while damaged. Grommash drank the tainted blood of Mannoroth, dooming the orcs to green skin and red eyes! Maybe not his best decision.
At the end of each turn, gain +1/+1 . He's Gruul "the Dragonkiller". He just wanted to cuddle them… he never meant to…
|High Exarch Yrel||Legendary||General||Paladin||8||7||5|

Deathrattle: Go Dormant. Restore 5 Health to awaken this minion. Always feels refreshed after a little dirt nap.
|Murozond the Infinite||Legendary||Dragon||Priest||8||8||8|
Battlecry: Play all cards your opponent played last turn. "Well, I'm glad YOU knew what I should be doing this turn."
Battlecry: Destroy a minion and gain its Health. She discovered Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire, a terrible weapon of shadow magic that could both swallow a soul and cut a mean julienne.
Deathrattle: Draw 8 cards. Eight arms of sand-flinging, foe-wringing, card-slinging fury!
Divine Shield. Taunt. Deathrattle: Equip a 5/3 Ashbringer. If you haven't heard the Tirion Fordring theme song, it's because it doesn't exist.
|Turalyon, the Tenured||Legendary||General||Paladin||8||3||12|
Rush. Whenever this attacks a minion, set the defender's Attack and Health to 3. "Let evil flee before righteousness; let the innocent live in peace. Let the day come when none need fear. For that day, I give my life gladly."
|Zzeraku the Warped||Legendary||Dragon||Warlock||8||4||12|
Whenever your hero takes damage, summon a 6/6 Nether Drake. The extra Z is for "zesty."
