Strategy[edit | edit source]

Plated Beetle is a great defensive card. Compared to Earthen Ring Farseer, it's playable a turn earlier and has better stats for its mana cost. However, its effect is a Deathrattle; this can be useful for decks with synergies (such as N'Zoth, the Corruptor), but also means the Beetle doesn't offer immediate protection when played.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Beetles, also known as scarabs, are insects found in a few areas of Azeroth. A hardy insect that can dwell in just about any climate, the beetle is known to thrive on battlefields after the fighting has ended.
