    Feels like a KoTFT card designed to showcase lifesteal. Aggro doesn't need this, Control typically uses applebaums or khartuts. Coming in the turn before your chaos nova feels bad, but maybe coined after Immolation Aura could be a strong stabiliser until turn 5. That probably just reflects more on Immolation Aura though.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Looking at the footage from streamers playing new decks, this card is quietly one of the clutchest Control DH tools out here. This card is better than Bone Wraith in terms of defensive viability, and imo, by quite a bit.

    One of the few real survivalcards that could help enable control-Demonhunters.

    Great card, it does it's thing and could be auto-include in many DH archetypes.

    Maybe this will go to the classic set, reasonable cost and a little power creep from Taz dingo!

    Looks almost fair. Maybe DH won't rule us all!

    Man o MAN if this was a Warlock card I'd be happy.

    and for an aggressive class this is really strong, it's not Khartut Defender strong but it at least restores that health you've been using when you use your face to attack enemy minions.

    Somewhere out there, a single tear slowly made its way down Sen'jin Shieldmasta's cheek as he reflected upon the time he stopped 4 aggro minions during a single championship match.

    Seems like a decent card that’ll probably be run a bit until the class gets more cards

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    This card is seen as only OK today. 5 years ago, Senjin was actually a pretty good card. Just goes to show how much stronger card these days are.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    We often forget that shield master was often played in control lists like warlock for that sweet early game stabilization, in order to get easy acess to board clears, big taunts and Reno. 

    Give it lifesteal and bamm! you got an auto-include in all deck.

    Taz dingo with lifesteal. Nice but only for slower demon hunter.

    I never apologize… I’m sorry but that’s the way I am.

    Insane power creep on Sen'jin Shieldmasta as it's a taunt and a heal most of the time as early as turn 4. Will see play in any defensively minded DH decks.

    For glory, honor, and gold!
