Table of Contents

Shield Slam is a Warrior-only spell. This card can be obtained from expert packs. 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 Slam is a core card in most Control Warrior decks, but in more aggressive or Midrange focused decks, you will not have access to large amounts as armour as often, which makes Shield Slam a poor choice of removal.

2. Constructed Play

Shield Slam is a core component of the Control Warrior deck, which has various methods like Shield Slam, Shieldmaiden, and Justicar Trueheart to gain huge amounts of armour. In more Midrange or Aggro Warrior builds though, it is a poor choice, since you will not be able to reliably gain armour as often.

3. Arena

Shield Slam is fairly weak in Arena. You will rarely be able to build up enough armour to make it hugely efficient, so it will generally function similarly to Drain Life by gaining 2 life and dealing 2 damage when factoring in your Hero Power.
