Hearthstone: Descent of Dragons: Winged Guardian, new rare Druid minion revealed

The Druid class gets a powerful new Rare minion in the form of Winged Guardian.

Sorry, Soggoth the Slitherer. The Old Gods look like they’ve chosen a new herald; or at least they should, if they care anything about power creep and maximizing their cards’ stats. That’s because Winged Guardian, the latest Rare Druid minion revealed in cohesion with the new Galakrond’s Awakening solo adventure makes you look a bit obsolete.

  • Winged Guardian
  • Class: Druid
  • Card type: Minion
  • Rarity: Rare
  • Mana cost: 7
  • Attack: 6 Health: 8
  • Card text: Taunt, Reborn. Can’t be targeted by spells or Hero Powers.

This Reddit post from NLplays pretty much sums up the situation:

Do you think Winged Guardian is an example of Hearthstone powercreep? Will it be useful in Hadronox Druid? Sound off in the comments.
