Continuing this week we come to an interesting card....
 
Shield And Sword
 
Tourney Play: 3.0
Casual Play: 4.0
Overall Play: 3.5
 
Pros:
+ Good in defensive decks
+ Anti f/s
 
Cons:
- Its only good in 2 decks.
- things with a high attk and defense own this card.
- magic jammer ownz this card.
 
RFP:
Well, the only deck this card should be playing this card in is a defensive exodia deck, or a defensive burner. If you play it in any other deck your just asking to commit suicide. The other good thing about this card is that an aqua madoor can now kill a summoned skull.
 
RFC: Well this card is only can be really succesfully used in two decks.
Defensive attack, and defensive exodia. So there isn't really a lot of good times to use this card. This card should gain more popularity when Millenium Shield And Labrinth walls comes out. This is a situation where dark magician is better then summoned skull, because either way it has a high attack and defense. So in that case you would lose. Also magic jammer negates this card since its a magic. So right now, this card isn't HORRIBLY useful, but in the future I am sure this card will gain some popularity. I mean joey uses it....=/
 
Combos:
 
Catapult Turtle + High defensive monsters=tremendous fires without the 500 lp cost.
 
Magician of faith + Catapult turtle + high defensive monse= rinse lather and repeat.
 
Well again I am sorry if this cotd was so short, its just there isn't really much to say about this card. It helps high defensive decks and kills high attack low defensive decks. As always good luck and happy dueling....

We have another of Joey's gamesavers today, Sword & Shield. As Joey was about to lose to an army of invincible zombies, he drew this, and made their attack points all 0, killing them, and winning the match. Is it really that great a card? Depends on the deck you use it in, as do most cards.

Sword & Shield has an obvious use in an obvious deck. Stalls love this magic. Say you use Raigeki and your opponent thinks you can do very little with your weak defense monsters. Then you pull this, and do 6000 direct damage with your 3 2000 attack monsters. The duel will then be won somewhat easily. However, you must play this card at the exact right time, or it's all for nothing.

Drawbacks? As with anything, it's not a monster, and you will pretty much hate your luck if you draw this with no monsters on the field. It also could be quite annoying if your opponent also has higher defense strength monsters on the field. That's about it.

The basic combinations are...well, basic. Monster removal + def mons + this = lots of damage. Another is Shield & Sword VS Summoned Skull. Nearly guaranteed way to kill it. As with any strong level 4 attack monster.

Rating - 3.7 Good, but in specialized decks is where it really shines. Try it out in a defensive deck, you may be pleased.
