Gagaga Gardna tries to do better what Tasuke Knight
did "well" yesterday. This is a Level 4, Earth
attributed, Warrior, with 1500 attack and 2000
defense, and a welcome addition to the Gagaga
family. When you are targeted for a Direct Attack,
you can Special Summon this card from your Hand.
Furthermore, when targeted for Battle, by
discarding a card from your Hand, you can protect
Gardna from being destroyed in that Battle. It can
certainly be a combo card, dumping something you
don't need at present for later or to set something
up (like yesterdays card). I'd really rather the
card were protected from Battle for the turn, as
opposed just the selected Battle, but it's not bad.
We're reviewing another of Yuma's Gagaga
monsters, Gagaga Gardna. Gardna is one of those
cards that can stop a swarming attack. When your
opponent declares a direct attack, you can special
summon this card from your hand. Also, when this
face up card is targeted for an attack, you can
discard 1 card to have this card not be destroyed by
that 1 battle. With 2,000 DEF, this card can fend
off a lot. This card is also good at getting other
cards you may want in the grave. Remember, Discard
is in the card's text, that means a lot. Gardna is
good for stopping those OTK swarms, by being able to
special summon itself when your opponent and being
able to save its self from battle. I like to think
this is an ok card for the side deck.
Tomorrow: Hammer time.
So...so far this week we got two Normal Monsters,
and two Battle Fader wanna-bes (and both being
2000 DEF can fend off attacks from generic monsters,
but it quickly crumbles when the opponent plays a
Synchro or Xyz. For every time Gardna is going to
fall to one of these heavy hitters, you can use a
card from your hand to make an instant Spirit
Reaper; this does, however, promote very bad hand
It's name does grant it special Gagaga privileges. I
suppose with his longevity, you could use
Gagagathunder. His own effect usually makes
Gagagaback moot and oftentimes he's not important
enough to use with Gagagaguard, though. Combined
with Gagagarush, he does make a sturdy wall, though.
He's not amazing enough to warrant his splashability.
I'd only really use him in a Gagaga Deck, and even
then he doesn't really add much to the theme. He's
not terribly bad, but...even in Gagaga Deck he can't
help contribute to the purpose that Gagaga Magician
and Girl already have going.
Granted, Gagaga Girl will still get her own effect
if she Xyzs with Gardna, but that is an extremely
rare occurance, and I strongly advise against any
attempts to push it.
Advanced: 2.5/5 (bonus .5 because of the name)
Aesthetics: 4/5 That is NOT the Gagagashield Trap
Card...and there aren't even any generic Gagaga
support cards for non-monsters. It's still a
cool-looking shield, though.
Hey Duelists, Coming to you with today's COTD is
Team Sentinel's BlackMarketYuGiOh and Shad0wslayr.
Today we will be discussing Gagaga Gardna. Level 4
earth attribute warrior 1500/2000
When an opponent's monster declares a direct attack:
You can Special Summon this card from your hand.
When this face-up card is targeted for an attack:
You can discard 1 card; this card cannot be
destroyed by that battle.
SS- So um, is this card like the futuristic version
of Yugi's Big Shield Gardna? It does follow along
with Yugi's theme. High Defensive card, hard to pass
over; however no drawback like BSG, but it does
provide the ability to combo off with the other
BMY- Yeah, I'll agree with the line of Zexal version
of BSG, For me however; I actually see this card
being used in certain graveyard fueled decks. No,
you wont see it in the meta, but you may see it on a
local level. The ability to discard as many times as
you can to stop his destruction by battle renders
him mildly useful in certain strategies other than
the gagaga decks.
SS- I completely agree, this card may fuel certain
decks to help with further strategies along with
waiting on the side for the continuing Gagaga
archetype cards to be released. This card may indeed
see some play.
Advanced: 2.5/5 "Like I said, could be used but we
are playing the waiting game with this archtype"
Artwork: 3/5 Has the whole Steam Punk Hobo Vibe
