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
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
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.
