Strategy[edit | edit source]

Serving as a potent and immediate source of Armor, this minion has obvious synergy with Control Warrior decks. Specifically, it can serve to immediately make a Shield Slam viable, even if the warrior previously had no Armor. It is therefore similar to Shield Block, but for 3 extra points of mana provides a 5/5 minion instead of drawing another card.

Shieldmaiden is also useful for defensive purposes, providing both a solid stack of Armor and a substantial body with which to challenge the board.

Her Battlecry can be used again if returned to the hand by effects like Youthful Brewmaster, allowing the player to gain another 5 Armor.

If her stats and ability seem underwhelming then use Recombobulator and hope to create a 6 mana rare or legendary.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
I can take the hit.
