|Golden Shielded Minibot||400||50|
An excellent early-game minion, and one of the strongest 2-cost minions in the game. With its Divine Shield, the Shielded Minibot can easily trade with common 3/2 or 2/2 minions, and will generally take extra cards/mana from your opponent to remove. As a hard to kill early game Mech, the Shielded Minibot can be useful for allowing Mech synergy with cards such as Cogmaster and Tinkertown Technician. It boasts excellent synergy with all Magnetic cards if the Divine Shield has not been popped.

- This minion's quotes are all references to Star Trek. When asked about the connection, Ben Brode responded, "everyone [on the team] watches Star Trek".
- The flavor text is a reference to the episode "The Honking" from the animated science fiction series Futurama.
