Dragon Shield closes our week, and it's certainly one of the more interesting Equip Magic cards out there. Equip cards, if only as a general rule, are bad. Whether or not there are many a card to destroy them in a format, they just usually aren't worth the resource and vulnerability. Having said that, however, this isn't all that bad of one. This can only be equipped to a Dragon, go figure, and that Dragon can't be destroyed by Battle or Card Effects.

5/5

Damn it...there were more lines on the parchment. Neither player takes Battle Damage from Battles involving the Dragon equipped with this card. That about single handedly kills this card, as there are better and more effective ways to go about protecting cards.

We have one last card for you from the new Judgment of the Light Monster Box called Dragon Shield. First, it is an equip card which I do not like as they tend to be a negative one card advantage for you. Yes, it protects your Dragon monster from destruction by battle and card effects, but it does not stop your opponent from targeting it, so they can still bounce it or take it giving you a minus one or two in card advantage.
 
Where I see Dragon Shield benefiting the most it with Big Dragon monsters that can plus you each turn by destroying one of their cards or by summoning more monsters to the field, thus offsetting the disadvantage of being an equip card and not being able to do battle damage. Some examples of these monsters are Dark Armed Dragon, Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, and Hieratic Dragon King of Atum. A good monster that combo’s well with Dragon Shield is White Dragon Ninja as the Ninja protects the Shield and the Shield protects the Ninja.
 
I do not think Dragon Shield will see much play as along with the above reasons, it is a combo card that can only be played when you have a Dragon on the field. A Hieratic deck is the best bet to see this card in and it is not top tier at the moment, so my rating will reflect that.
 
Good luck and good dueling,

Dragon Shield
Equip Spell
Equip only to a Dragon-Type monster. It cannot be destroyed by battle or by card effects. Neither player takes any battle damage from attacks involving it.

To wrap up this week we have Dragon Shield a bit of Dragon Support from Judgement of the Light.  Dragon Shield can only be equipped to a Dragon and that Dragon cannot be destroyed. However neither player takes battle damage from battles involving that Dragon.

Okay protection effects are always a good thing, but what is the point of protecting a monster if you can’t hurt their life points it seems counterproductive. If you wanted to protect your dragon you could use Rider of the Storm Winds which while the protection is a one-shot it also gives you a trample effect. Also it is an equip card so it has all their weaknesses as well.

Overall, not much, protection is all good but a counterproductive condition means this card isn’t worth a place in any Dragon Deck.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
