Notes[]

  • Selfless Hero's Deathrattle will only give Divine Shield to a random minion which doesn't have Divine Shield already.[1][2]

Strategy[]

This card is riskier than Argent Protector, since your opponent can choose to kill your other minions before killing her, wasting her Deathrattle. On a full board her Deathrattle can also end up giving the wrong minion Divine Shield.

It is still great in combination with Steward of Darkshire, increasing her chance to survive until next turn so you can "choose" to which minion she gives a Divine Shield.

This card provides a similar strategic advantage to Dark Cultist or Avenge, forcing the opponent to dismantle your board in a certain order to avoid granting you the buff. As a result it can be useful in disrupting the opponent's plays, and causing them to waste potential damage or effects.

Quotes[]

Summon
Nothing scares me! ...except mice.
Attack
Is that it?
Death
Avenge me...

Lore[]

This card depicts a selfless defender, who through their altruistic death grants a shield of Holy grace to an ally.
