Table of Contents

Shield Block is a Warrior-only spell. 2 copies of this card are given to you when you reach Level 8 with Warrior. Later, when you reach Level 28 and 30 with that class, you get a golden version of this card. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Shield Block is a poor value card, but one that is powerful in many decks since it fits so well with the game plan of the Warrior class. It can function as an immediate activator for Shield Slam, as well as a way to dig deeper into your deck to find better answers, while gaining some armour to stall the game.

2. Constructed Play

Shield Block is used in many builds of Control Warrior. It is an excellent activator for Shield Slam as well as a way to stall the game and outlast more aggressive decks.

3. Arena

Shield Block is a below average card in Arena. It is rare in Arena that you will be able to use your armour for more than stalling the game, which means this card is simply a 3 Mana card draw in most situations.
