Kobolds and Catacombs Guide
Your hero can only take 1 damage at a time.
Try putting it on. Wait, let me get my camera.
I think this card ought to fit well in a deck that runs 2x Ice Barrier, 2x Ice Block, maybe Majordomo and a lot of control tools to stall out to the fatigue game, as this card really shines in fatigue.
Had an animated armor up when I played a Yogg (It survived the entire enslaught, Yogg did not) in the extreme late-game. Yogg kept drawing me cards, but because of the animated armor I was able to survive and keep the pressure on my opponent. Such a sick card.
i've done all wings of leauge of explorers, except the last one, but when and where do i get this card?
It's obtained from one of the class challenges, specifically the one where you face off against the Animated-Armor-like boss as mage.
yeah, figured that out after completing the fifth wing. got it now. thanks anyways!
LoE only has 4 wings?
AI wont ignore it anymore after old gods
A precious card against heroic bosses, they will just ignore it and go face. However, they will try to kill it with direct damage spells if it's alone on the board or it is the most valuable minion you have in terms of stats, with board clears if you summon another AI-threatening minion or have lots of minions, and or trade it with minions if when the armor is injured. That could make your runs thouger if you don't have Duplicate in your deck or Echo of Medivh as a more expensive solution. Anyway, great card! If you enjoy running heroics with your mage and have nothing to do with your dust I would even suggest to craft this card in gold!
This card counters Emperor Thaurissan's Power of the Firelord.
This helps in heroic mode for almost all bosses so well because the AL for some of the bosses just keep going face instead of taking this down. Freeze other minions and Ice Barrier with some duplicates. You win lol
Doesn't decrease fatigue damage.
so I found a bit of a bug with Animated Armor so when I was against an aggro mage and I had four life left with Animated Armor on the field they decided to go face with the spell Fireball and my secret Ice Block activated. So this is a major bummer, because ice block activated when it was NOT fatal damage.
My best guess why Ice Block activates is that the game thinks the fireball will kill that triggers ice block to activate before it hits.
it depends which was played first.

Imagine if Warlock could use it... Pit Lord might actually be viable.
Turn 3: Coin --> Animated Armor
Turn 4: Pit Lord for 1 life. =D
Plus, 1-Life Hero Power.
As I've seen others say, it'd be cool in some other classes, but it's kinda "meh" for Mage.
It was originally a neutral card, but cards like Master of Disguise limited it and forced it to be a class card
Most targeted card with fireballs.. :D
It has a synergy with Wee Spellstopper and Ice Barrier.Could be used in Majordomo Executus decks KappaPride
Most of people see this as 4/4 taunt but what they miss out is that it has taunt for the spells aswell which is really important in some matchups.
This card is ridiculously good in the heroic adventures. The AI is usually too face hungry to remove it.
This feels like an incomplete concept that they could flesh out down the road. Tanky Ice Mages for Control?
Really interesting concept for a card, but i think this should be a warlock card in that class has a lot of potencial
