1. General Comments

Power Word: Shield is a very powerful card. Generally any card that replaces itself in your hand for 1 Mana is worth considering in your deck. What pushes Power Word: Shield over the edge is that the effect it offers alongside the card draw is also extremely powerful. Buffing a minion's health can allow a favourable trade, or preemptively raise a minion's health outside of an expected removal spell's range.

2. Constructed Play

Power Word: Shield is included in almost every Priest deck. It is an extremely flexible card that can function as card draw, enable stronger trades, or combine with Wild Pyromancer.

3. Arena

Power Word: Shield is a very strong card in Arena that can replace itself in your hand while adding value to the minions you have in play.
