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.

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.
