How to getEdit

Two copies of Shield Block are a reward for raising a warrior to level 8.

Two Golden copies of Shield Block are a reward for raising a warrior to levels 28 and 30.

Shield Block is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.


Shield Block is a cheap draw card when you consider the 5 Armor it provides. It also synergizes well with Shield Slam, allowing for a 4 mana 5 damage removal.

If you are in a control vs control match, or any other match expected to go into Fatigue, it is usually a good idea to not play Shield Block if you draw it late. The extra draw will put you further into Fatigue than your opponent, eventually negating the Armor you gained.
