Strategy[]

By itself, this card is similar to LegacyFiery War Axe. But if you have minions with Divine Shield on board it'll provide a massive tempo swing in your favour and open up a lot of options in terms of trading. Examples include having a Whispers of the Old GodsSteward of Darkshire on the board, then playing Whispers of the Old GodsStand Against Darkness and Rallying Blade, to get five 2/2 recruits with Divine Shield, forcing an enemy to burn a board removal on tokens. It can also be a great turn 3 play if you have an LegacyArgent Squire on the board, or any minions buffed by LegacyArgent Protector.

However, much like LegacyEaglehorn Bow, it is also used in decks and situations where it's Battlecry is of little to no effect, as 3 mana is still a relatively cheap price to pay for the utility of having a 3/2 weapon.

Lore[]

This card's 'rallying' effect is connected to the Divine Shield ability, and may depict imparting Holy strength to those already illuminated by the grace of the Light.

Trivia[]

  • The art for this card appears to depict Shalamayne, the legendary weapon of The Grand TournamentVarian Wrynn. This could be an intentional reference to the king's role in rallying his forces, or simply be a reuse of previous art. Shalamayne has no known connection with paladins or Rallying Blade's effect, making a direct connection highly unlikely.
