This is really good in Libram and/or Pure. A 4/2 Divine Shield for 3 is honestly just good, but getting a 2nd shield makes it really nutty.
Can you use spellburst once per turn for this minion, or just once overall?
Because if you can activate the divine shield each turn, that is very, very powerful.
Not completely sold on this card just yet. It has good stats and the effect is interesting, but it feels like it's easy for your opponent to remove. Seems like a decent 3 drop (mainly for pure paladin) so far, but we will have to see what other kind of cards paladin will get this expansion. Actually i do see some synergy with Libram of Wisdom. IF you manage to keep this alive.
But hey as long as it's not a murloc paladin card, i'm happy!

Once overall. it's like a delayed battlecry of sort.
Anyway rating, I rate this 5/5, 4/2 DS for 3 is already quite amazing, we saw a 4 mana 4/2 with DS see no play, but 1 mana difference is a lot, plus it has quite a great upside.. though it's weird in sequensing, since you can't buff it to trade, you trade and then buff it, sometimes wasting the spellburst will be the right play though.
A nice 3-drop, but doesn't slot into any paladin archetype right now.
The divine shield granting ability is good, but I think it will rarely matter, especially as paladin does not have a real midrange strategy for this minion to go in where the ability could enable 3-for-1's.
If one emerges, I wouldn't be surprised if this is just too slow to compete with aggro decks.
This post is discussing the wild format.
The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.
Either good or bad depending on what else Paladin gets, but right now it seems good.
Seems pretty good in Libram Paladin since you'll likely be able to proc the effect somewhat consistently. Definitely a bit worrying at 2 health since so many things can clear it though.

Nothing I'd consider stand-out, but it should be a nice addition to divine shield synergy. Reminds me a bit of the Glass Knight from Witchwood.

as a current fan of paladin due to their cool books, I like this card since its super easy to trigger.
Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing
If you manage to reliably get the spellburst divine shield, this minion would be op. But since it doesn't have rush, you have to wait for a turn to use the first one and with 2hp it won't be hard to get removed, before you get the chance, I think.

Arena > Wild > Standard
the statlline alone is already great, but I wonder how the mechanic works? Will it activate on a spell even if it still has DS or do you actually have to hold off on spells until the first shield was popped?
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
The ability is a bit hard to get going sometimes, but a 3 mana 4/2 with Divine Shield is already fairly strong by itself, so it might see play.
The main thing keeping me from really liking this card is that you can't use the Spellburst effect on the turn you play this card, which makes it much easier to deal with her. But I am probably underestimating it.

Way too slow. Maybe if this had Rush this would be valuable. But that 2 HP makes this a 3-mana waste.
4/2 with divine shield is already pretty imposing on 3.
The spellburst effect means its possible this just gets more than 1 value trade, which is pretty nuts.
Goes into pure paladin for sure, but can it cut it in a non pure lists? Maybe in secret pally. Its just on the borderline of being good really.

I think it gives it a divine shield right after you play a spell, after this is played on board.
Means if it already have a divine shield, then nothing will happen if you happen to play a spell after it. Works only once though.
Curving this card into Blessing of Kings is bonkers. And yet I'm still not so sold on the card. It's an aggressive card in a class whose best aggro tools live in Wild.
That being said, If this card plus some more aggressively stated cards are released in Paladin, they can make Librams into more of a aggressive Midrange deck rather than the slow Midrange deck we currently have that can't find a consistent spot on the metagame right now. This also synergises really well with First Day of School, which I also believe is a more aggressive oriented card.
We'll see if aggro Pally resurfaces again next expansion, but I believe this card is not the card that will make the deck but rather a card that's splashed in the deck for curve purposes (and will most likely do an amazing job at it).
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)Golden portraits' progress (this will be easier to update after the new profile page goes live in-game):(19/Apr/20) Demon Hunter - 1; Druid - 548; Hunter - 589; Mage - 401; Paladin - 518; Priest - 338; Rogue - 337; Shaman - 557; Warlock - 480; Warrior - 483
