hey how much do u wannna get for this card?
This Hero Ability WILL stack with itself and other Armor sources. Assuming you don't get attacked, you can keep stacking on the Armor Points.
Armor functions exactly like additional HP. It does not reduce incoming damage.
You can stack Armor with no limit, unlike the Priest class ability
which cannot heal the player above the initial 30 health. The Priest ability is far more versatile though, because it can target any minion, or be used offensively by using
is currently the only card that can bypass enemy Armor, by setting their health directly to 15. See the Alexstrasza page for old behavior prior to the

This hero power is on the lower side of useful. Its key advantage is that it's never, ever unusable as long as you've got the mana free. There is virtually no situation where an extra 2 points of armor won't help you, and you don't need some special board state to make it useful.
That said, this power also does very little to -improve- your board. Yes, it has its uses, but all you're really doing is buying yourself some time. It's never useless, but it's also never stellar. Aggressively middle-of-the-road as far as hero powers go.
