Closing the week, we come to Aegis of Gaia, and I would start by asking how the hell do you say "Aegis?" I have a good idea, but am not sure.

Anyway, this isn't a bad card...gaining 3000 lifepoints instantly is amazing. Granted, this card has quite a cost. When destroyed, you lose 3000 lifepoints.

To your credit, or whoever may play this card, there are really only three cards that are floating everywhere to destroy. Mobius the Frost Monarch, Mystical Space Typhoon, and Heavy Storm. Though, odds are you will be facing a Gadget or Monarch deck.

That Monarch deck is probably using two or even three copies of Mobius.
Suppose after you played this card, your lifepoints drop below 3000.
Then, this card is destroyed and you lose the duel.

I wouldn't play this card anywhere except perhaps the Fire Princess burn/recovery deck. It's very dangerous elsewhere.

Ratings:

2/5 all around Not a bad card, but so easily destroyed, and that could cost you the duel.

Art: 4/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Aegis of Gaia :
As if collecting a complete set wasn't hard enough already, they go and make 18 billion secret rares to add on top. Sigh...

Eh, a reasonable card. It gives you LP to use various Fairy "my LP is higher than yours" effects and can keep you alive another turn or so in a tight spot.
And, if the card is destroyed, there isn't any net loss, and you did drag S/T destruction away from something more useful. The question is whether there is something more useful to put in your deck in the first place. I'd say Fairys could have some fun with this, but otherwise its nothing special.

Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced: 2.5/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga

Aegis of Gaia

What a weird card. Life point gain is useless, and it gets even more useless when you eventually just lose what you gained.

1/5.

Tebezu
Aegis of Gaia

If Cyber Stein was legal I'd expect it to see some play. As a side deck choice for end of match procedure it will totally own. Last Turn is banned and as such the only deck I can see relevance in is Injection Fairy Lily. I am curious where the risk comes? It is a minus one (no big deal cause 3000 LP can alter a game state) that can laugh in the face of a burn deck (another good option to side against) that gives you 3000 free LP. If you lose 3000 to its removal your back were you should be?

3/5

As a side deck choice it has some application. 3000 LP makes me want to give it more than a 2 thus a 3 is pushing it.
Turkeyspit Aegis of Gaia

I'll make this one short and to the point. This trap card's primary use is in a life-gain deck. Since I've never played with or against such a decktype, I have little to say about it.

Outside of a life-gain deck, I can't fathom why you would want to use this card.

Is this card good in a life-gain deck? Only if by activating it you can then pull out a win. Leaving it on your field to be destroyed (and thereby inflicting 3000 LPs of damage to you) in a subsequent turn is just a bad idea.

---------------------------------------

Traditional:

1/5 - lol!


Advanced:

3/5 - in a life-gain deck. Don't use it anywhere else.


Card Art:

2/5 - Raigeki strikes down another environmentalist!
BobDoily Aegis of Gaia

Hey the Immortal of Thunder got a make-over!!!!! But lost all of his cool tricks. Aside from the possibility of being included in some future otk or burn deck this card is essentially useless for the main meta.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
