Strategy[edit | edit source]

An excellent early-game minion, and one of the strongest 2-cost minions in the game. With its Divine Shield, the Shielded Minibot can easily trade with common 3/2 or 2/2 minions, and will generally take extra cards/mana from your opponent to remove.

As a hard to kill early game Mech, the Shielded Minibot can be useful for allowing Mech synergy with cards such as Cogmaster and Tinkertown Technician.

As a cheap Divine Shield minion, this card has good synergy with Blood Knight or Redemption.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Shields up, red alert.
Weapons ready.
Shields... Failing...
