Shouldn't this card be named "Selfless Heroine"?
Nothing scares me, except dice.
Cuz the dice always gives divine shield to a minion that already has it.
Sacrificed her for effect the other day. As per usual, it went to the one already-shielded minion out of five on the board. Good times.
Pretty worthless, it's 1 health means it gets destroyed by anything before your second turn so it will almost never cast it's effect on curve. Oh and it doesn't help that your other 1 drop minion already has Divine Shield, stick to Argent Squire instead
I have been playing this card since the expansion release, and I have never had it's effect actually go on a card (unless it already had divine shield)
"Nothing scares me ... except Blood Knight"
This is my new favourite summoning quote
I recently had this situation, when I had 3 other minions on the field, but it gave shield to already shielded Argent Squire. It was really annoying. I see no reason why this is programmed differently than Demented Frostcaller only that they wanted to make Frostcaller seem at least somewhat playable.
Yea, this thing happened to me recently its so fuckin stupid I mean come on Blizzard fix your shit it's a rare card for god's sake.
Hope this card gets a nerf. Using is feels unfair, having it used against me, infuriating.
I'd suggest swapping the atk & hp to make it a 1/2. It then won't be able to trade up into a 2-drop AND give a 2 for 1 trade for the minion receiving the divine shield.
Let's say you you used N'zoth and created a board. Youhave a board with several random minions and this, and one of the other minions have a deathrattle that summons a 5/5 minion. If the board got wiped completely at the same time, would her effect give the shield to the newly summoned 5/5? or would it go to waste?
deathrattles trigger in the order they are played so if you played SH before your minion that summons a 5/5 it wouldnt trigger but if you played SH after the other minion the 5/5 would get divine shield.
Every time I see this card played against me, I wish I had a mouse to throw at her.
"Nothing scares me... except mice."
...That's pretty much the cutest opening line I've ever heard in Hearthstone.
She's not scared of tentacles. Nope.
can this give itself divine shield?
Considering deathrattles don't activate unless the minion dies, I would assume that no, you cannot give Divine Shield to a dead minion. Suppose if you somehow got it as a Hunter it could hypothetically work with Princess Huhuran, or Feign Death in Wild, but that's not gonna be nearly a common enough situation.
