Aganej2 Guardian Steelhorn

The worst protector hord has. It can't attack, which is the nail in it's coffin. It can push back for 3 but once you have no more need to protect and go on the offense like hord loves to do, this guy drops off the map. One of the very few examples I can conjure that would merit use of this guy would be totems. In the early game, he'll kill whatever is trying to go up against a totem. The excuses end there, making this card not very useful at all.

Constructed: 1.5/5 (unless there is something worth protecting at all stages of the game)

Sealed: 1/5 (you are looking for more of an attacker in sealed, strict protection doesn't win a thing if you can't deal damage)

Raid: 3/5 (in a game where a player is designated to do a task, the healer shaman player would use this card to defend from ony)
Guardian Steelhorn brings us half way through protector week. And that’s all he does – protect.

Steelhorn has the nice bonus of being a 3/3 for the cost of 2. He can be zapped by Watcher Mal’wi, a Searing Totem, or any other ability card for 1-2, and still stick around to protect. Plus, he’ll take out a Kagra or Veshrall that strikes.

The down side is that Steelhorn can’t attack. He is there for pure defense. That part of his effect severely limits the combinations he can be used for. If you play him, there will surely be moments when you have an open field, Steelhorn ready, and you still can’t tag the opponent. But at least, with this Tauren on the field, you won’t be tagged either.

Draft: 3.5 – Steelhorn will slow down any attacking opponent, for a cheap summoning price.

Constructed: 3.0 – He’s real good for the cost, at defending. But constructed decks need more than just defense. You need something to knock down the opponent with. His non-attack status restricts his playability.

Raid: 2.0 – I like Steelhorn just a hair better than Ophelia, for facing the dragon. Most of the time, protectors won’t get a chance to protect. That being the case, I’d rather have invested less mana.
