Bojack’s Defensive Shield – Bojack Unbound Subset – Kid Buu Saga Promo/Insert - #29 Energy Combat

Power: Bojack only. Stops an energy attack. Stops all of your opponent's energy attack for the remainder of Combat. Remove from the game after use.

I’m sure we all know the power of Nappa’s Energy Aura. Restricted. Staple for all decks that can run the thing. So what’s up with this card. It has the exact same game text as NEA, but it is Bojack only. Guess what that means. I can see Bojack decks running 4 of these, no if and or buts about it.

Ally decks normally shrug off the physical defense with taking stages with allies and running few blocks to stop choice attacks. Hence, they can focus on energy defense. Bojack, on the other hand, now has 5 energy stop alls. I mean, what can this guy not stop besides 1-3 anger? Physical and energy attacks are being dealt with.

Gohan’s Kick does mess this card up, but even so, NEA is still played. Kick is normally in physical decks to deal with VPS and NPR, so this will still work the majority of the time. Don’t worry about Kick too much. This card will work most of the time. A couple of these to stall out an energy deck and you’ll be fine while you deal out your own damage.

So moral of the story is… if you are Bojack, run this thing. Run 4 of this thing. Five energy stop alls is quite nice to deal with energy decks.

Standard: 4.5 out of 5.0 (deals with energy decks all by itself) Tuff Enuff: 4.6 out of 5.0 (more energy decks with the lack of DB/Anger)
Sealed: 1.0 out of 5.0 (not going to help you because you aren’t going to be Bojack) ~matthewlow

Bojack's Defensive Shield:
Bojack Only. Stop an Energy Attack and Stop all energy attacks for the remainder of combat.

Im pretty sure thats the text on that card. Its a really nice card. Remember when you could have 3 nappa's energy aura? Well if your MP is bojack you have 4 of these in your deck. Most energy decks hardly use Gohan's kick so having 4 of these and a nappa's energy aura will set energy decks back alot of the time. Bojack is all about him and the allies so you have the allies for the physical damage absorbing if need be. Then you have the defensive shields to deal with the energy decks. I havent tried to build the deck though. To much of a hassle trying to get all those movie cards. But it seems like a decent deck.
Rating 3.9

Bojack's Defensive Shield

Two words.  Bojack only.  That determines exactly what kind of deck this will be played in.  As such, it can only be graded on that.

That being said, this card is very very good in it's little niche.  It stops any card not named Krillin's Heat Seeking Blast (or any of the other irreverant unstoppable energies I have forgotten), and every other energy from your opponent for the combat.  Assuming you run four of this, and the standard all blocks (Time is a Warrior's Tool, Nappa's Energy Aura, Frieza's Force Bubble, and possibly Cell's Defense), this gives Bojack a total of 8 ways to say no, whenever his opponent plays an energy (or six, if the energy in question is focused, or they have a Sphere).  Like Bojack needs more power.  Yes, Gohan's Kick (which most everyone runs) destroys this, but that is a small enough drawback.

Constructed (Bojack only) 4.5 out of 5.  Not perfect, as Gohan's Kick, and a few other ways exist to get around it, but quite good.

Limited 1 out of 5.   You pretty much HAVE to pull Bojack to play this, and the odds of that are pretty bloody slim.
