Strategy[edit | edit source]

Sen'jin Shieldmasta is a good Taunt minion. This is because the card is equally suited to any deck, and does not require any specific synergy (like Dread Corsair) or board state (like Abomination). The card is of average stats suited to any stage of play, but can have an advantage towards the onset of play. It has a good stat distribution to take advantage of its Taunt ability.

Sen'jin Shieldmasta is a solid choice for newer players, although it will usually be replaced by more powerful upgrades as their collections fill out. Sen'jin is the Taunt-equivalent to Chillwind Yeti, a solid body for a good price that can have a powerful impact on the board especially if played on curve.

Shellshifter is a more versatile of Sen'jin Shieldmasta without any downsides (but only available to druids), and Ashtongue Battlelord is strictly better (but only available to demon hunters). Circus Amalgam is a neutral card that is a strictly better version of this and Chillwind Yeti.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Taz'dingo! Ye-e-es!
Ja-ha-ha-ha mon!

Lore[edit | edit source]

Sen'jin was the witch-doctor former leader of the Darkspear Tribe, and father of Vol'jin, former Warchief of the Horde.

There is also a troll settlement named in his honor. Some of the Sen'jin Guardians watching Sen'jin Village carry shields similar to that in the card's image.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This card is affectionately known to many players as "Taz'dingo!" due to its signature warcry in Hearthstone and in the Warcraft series of games.
  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Fires of Outland" series, for the card Ez'trin.
