Time for some more Gagaga support. As we have seen in the last few days, getting two Gagaga monsters on the field at one time is not that hard. Once we accomplish this feet, we can protect them and any other monster we have from destruction by battle or card effects with Gagagaguard.
 
That’s not too shabby, but you need to have a deck that is dedicated to Gagaga decks. It also does not stop effects that only remove or bounce monsters. In the right deck, I would say to try one or two Gagagguards.
 
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5

Day 3 of Card names you can't say 5 times real fast week brings us to Gagagaguard, A Trap card of the normal kind, Gagagaguard says: If you control 2 or more Gagaga monsters, this turn, monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects. This card is pretty good, and there's more to it than it seems. You have a Gagaga Magician and Girl on your side, activate Gagaga Guard, after that, play Dark Hole and all your monsters are safe and you can attack. The only draw back is that if your Gagaga monsters are in attack mode, they won't get destroyed by battle, but you are taking damage. Also it doesn't save your monsters from bouncing effects such as Raiza, or banishing effects like Caius. A good card that has more than defensive tactics going for it, if/when played right. 
 
Traditional: 1.5
Advanced: 2.5

No. Just no.

The effect, I suppose, is not that bad. What's notable is that it protects ANY monster; having two GGG's out is just the activation requirement. Assuming using GGG is your main focus, this card's text effectively reads: "If you have two or more monsters, they cannot be destroyed this turn."
Just like GGGbolt, however, the problem lays that (between Magician, Girl, and Gardna), those monsters just aren't WORTH protecting, nor should you really intend to have Magician be your main offence or to have Gardna protect you forever. And having two Gardnas out just to have Guard ready for your other monsters is just too situational. Not being a Quickplay is just a further insult. As if that wasn't enough, two GGG's are needed for its requirement; you can't Summon GGG Magician onto an empty field, expect to protect him with this, then just plop down GGG Girl next turn.

Maybe if a really strong Xyz monster with "Gagaga" in its name that mandated Gagaga Xyz Material existed, this card can be considered, as Evo-Miracle is to Evos. However, this is not the case. Stick with Waboku and Forbidden Lance for the time being if you really want a dedicated Gagaga build.

Niche Decks: Gagaga, if the archetype ever gets more specific support

Traditional: 1/5 (because you know how often you'll have this set with two Gagaga Magicians while your opponent busts out CED)
Advanced: 1/5 (strong protection effect, poor application) (FYI, the score I give is an analysis of how well the card can be used in its own deck and how that specific deck works in general - how the card works in decks outside its field is just bonus points, as that means it's a splashable card) Aesthetics: 2/5 I'll give the Gagaga family points for originality. You see that character in the background of this card? That's a stylized version of 我, which is the character meaning "I" or "me" in Chinese. In Japanese, this character is pronounced ga (boku is Japan's main way to say "me"; ga is just the Japanese way to pronounce China's word), so Gagaga Magician can be more accuractely translated to as the Mememe Magician. I find this particularly interesting as I know a very well-known Chinese rap song that focuses on chanting eight 我 times in a row.

Philosophy Corner: Some genetically defunct people lack a certain gene that prevents them from accepting failure.
