General Comments

Shirvallah, the Tiger is an extremely powerful defensive tool locked behind a huge Mana Cost. As the card decreases in Cost as more Mana is spell in spells, it will often reach a point of Costing 0 Mana in the late game. This allows it to be used as powerful defensive tool due to its Rush, Divine Shield, and Lifesteal effects and it can often be played multiple times per turn when returned to your hand with Youthful Brewmaster.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Shirvallah, the Tiger is used in a range of slower Paladin decks. However, it is most notably used in Holy Wrath Paladin decks, that exploit the high base Mana Cost of the card by used Holy Wrath to deal 25 damage.



In Arena, Shirvallah, the Tiger. It is almost possible to assemble enough spells in Arena, making the card, quite literally, unplayable.
