Steel Beetle is a rare druid minion card, from the Galakrond's Awakening set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular Steel Beetle are obtained by defeating Rafaam and Galakrond in Galakrond's Awakening's Chapter 4 of Explorers campaign.

Once the regular version has been obtained, both regular and golden versions can be crafted and disenchanted.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Steel Beetle 100 20
Golden Steel Beetle 800 100

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card gives a healthy amount of Armor and has good stats to boot, but its requirement makes it tricky to use, like Garden Gnome. As a defensive card, it has clearer usage with decks that Untapped Potential, which often runs Starfall, Nourish, and Hidden Oasis to trigger the Armor gain, and has a weak early game that Steel Beetle's low cost and Armor gain covers for.
