Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion has average stats, but a very powerful effect. It can be used to halt an enemy minion, allowing you to gain Tempo. It becomes more powerful when used against bigger threats, meaning it can be quite impactful even in the late game. Unlike other 1 health minions, it can be safely played against a Rogue or Druid by targeting the enemy hero, preventing them from killing it with their Hero Power.

Thanks to its Elemental tribe and usefulness throughout the game, this minion is great for triggering your Elemental synergies.

Glacial Shard synergizes nicely with cards such as Shatter and Ice Lance as well.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Ice to meet you!
Chill out!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This card's flavor text is a reference to the song "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice.
