    THis is such a Safeguard to even a Guarenteed Leathal Card for your other minions.

    It’s really good.

    A well Deserved 4 Stars.

    The fact it’s neutral frightens me…
    Decks that can frequently play strong minions on curve (Embiggen Druid for example) can make great use of this.
    Example: You have a 3/4 and a 4/5 on board. You play this on Turn 5 with a 2/3.
    Targeted Removal doesnt work. AoE is too expensive. Well, Mage just lost.

    But this is the perfect scenario. There is Rush, there is Taunt, there is Battlecry, ectr. The “elusive” effect is not as good as it used to be.
    The fact it protects itself is very annoying though.

    This is another card that rises and falls with the Meta, but I think there will always be a deck to beat this, so I rate it 3 Stars. With 2/4 most aggro deck cant afford something that MIGHT protect their board. Maybe some midrange decks fill their list with this.

    Insane. What kind of brain can design such a card?

    High likely hood of nerf. But it only protects from targeted effects so this is still vulnerable to random shots and aoe.

    Freaking insane. Anti-magic shell (with no buffs) on a cheaper stick. Will be perfect for aggro/zoo decks to protect one’s board, especially with the fact that this minion also can’t be targeted by spells/HP.

    Can definitely see this being nerfed to ‘Your *other* minions have “Can’t be targeted by spells or Hero Powers.”‘ (if this card actually is too powerful)

      You sure about that? The main spells aggro/zoo decks have to watch out for are AoEs, and this card doesn’t protect your minions from them.

      This card also doesn’t protect your minions from battlecries or even other minions. Your minions would still be dead after your opponent plays a Reno, or rushes something at you.

      In my opinion this card’s just gonna be a 2/4 most of the time.

    This is honestly mega annoying to play against and no fun at all, it should only give the protection to other minions… The fact that it protects itself removes all interractability from the card, you either have an AoE and lots of minions or you’re not gonna be able to do ANYTHING.

    This is one card I’m like 95% sure will get nerfed at some point if aggro and aggressive mid range decks are a thing.
