Strategy[edit | edit source]

Ancestral Guardian, though having low health for its cost, makes up for it with Lifesteal and Reborn. It can be used for trading which not only heals your hero but also providing another body with its Reborn, which also has Lifesteal and the same respectable 4 Attack.

Ancestral Guardian is very powerful with Making Mummies, both working towards the quest and being a good target for Emperor Wraps. This can allow you to generate 2/2 Lifesteal minions which leave behind 4/1s, outputting decent pressure and plenty of healing.

In arena, this is a great card for keeping your hero alive, as there are not many healing cards in arena. Additionally, having two bodies helps it trade up against minions.

Quotes[edit | edit source]


Lore[edit | edit source]

Ancestral Guardians are human ghosts that protect the subterranean Chamber of the Moon in Uldum. Their origin is notably unclear as humans are not native to Uldum.
