Strategy[]

Shieldbearer is a very cheap taunt minion that can be placed early to help stall a game until more mana is available for stronger cards. A combination of Divine Spirit followed by Inner Fire can turn this into a potentially game-ending powerhouse very early. That being said, you should take care, as always, to make sure that your opponent does not have any hard removal like Shadow Word: Death. A safer and cheaper move may be to use a single Inner Fire to create a 4/4 for only 2 mana, as well as being safe from both Shadow Word: Death and Shadow Word: Pain.

Shieldbearer differs from Mirror Image in some key ways - Shieldbearer will deal more effectively with AoE attacks, but will only be able to stand a single hit from stronger minions. Due to mage decks regularly featuring spell synergy from cards such as Flamewaker and Mana Wyrm, it is rare for Shieldbearer to feature in a mage deck.
