Previous availability[]

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

Hand of Protection is a relatively cheap way to save a minion from potential death or force a favorable trade. Divine Shield can be placed on a friendly or even an enemy minion to shield it from a single attack. This card can be used even if a minion has lost their own Divine Shield, and is useful in preparation for a Blood Knight.


Hand of Protection is a paladin spell from World of Warcraft.

Players may only have one Hand on them per paladin at any time. Hand of Protection also places the 1 minute Forbearance debuff on the target, and cannot be used on targets with Forbearance.
