Notes[]

  • Ancient Shieldbearer's Battlecry can activate whether C'Thun is in the hand, deck, or battlefield, or even already dead.[1]
  • This card's Battlecry takes into account buffs such as Abusive Sergeant when deciding whether to activate.[2]
  • Ancient Shieldbearer will not be included in Arena picks (along with C'Thun and all other related cards).[3] However, they may still appear in Arena matches through random effects.[4]

Strategy[]

This is a more powerful Shieldmaiden for a C'Thun deck.

This minion's Battlecry requires at least +4 Attack to have been granted to C'Thun in order to activate.

Quotes[]

Summon
C'Thun shelters us!
Attack
Taste my shield!

Lore[]

Bearing ancient shields probably sounds like a boring job, but Ancient Shieldbearer picked it up quick and hasn’t put it down since. Though, in fairness, she probably can’t put it down. Ever. Having an eyeball shield permanently fused into your flesh is sure to make finding a comfy sleeping position difficult, but it’s a small price to pay for such eye-catching protection! C’Thun has an eye for safety equipment. And style.[5]

Trivia[]

The shield used in the artwork likely inspired the shield Precipice of Oblivion, which was featured in the World of Warcraft expansion Battle for Azeroth.
