Table of Contents

Shieldmaiden is a Warrior-only minion. This card was introduced with Goblins vs Gnomes and can now only be obtained through crafting. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Shieldmaiden is a strong new Warrior card that synergises well with many existing Warrior decks. The combination of the Shield Block effect with a 5/5 body is a nice way to gain life without being forced to play passively. It is also a powerful swing in the game when used in combination with Shield Slam.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Shieldmaiden fits perfectly into an existing Warrior deck in the form of Control Warrior. The synergy it has with Shield Slam as well as the additional life gain make it a powerful inclusion.

3. Arena

In Arena, Shieldmaiden is an average pick. Since life totals are generally unimportant in Arena, this minion is often just an over-costed 5/5. However, Warrior does have a tendency to lower their own health in Arena by clearing minions with weapons, which increases the value of life gain cards a little.
