 Full Defensor--at first I didn't care for this card at all. I'm not very fond blockers or cards that turn creatures into blockers, though I do run blockers if I'm playing Control. It's starting to intrigue me a bit more in civs that have interesting creatures to play with the card, like Darkness' slayers (funny and sure to be effective stall in that situation) and Nature's bounce-to-the hand Shouters. This spell isn't really needed for Water and Light (unless you play more of their underpowered weenies like Wyn and Hypersquid Walter--but still...) and doesn't have interesting effect creatures for Fire--though a chump Braid Claw blocker sounds funny.

I think this card can be nice in Shadowclash limited because of the lack of blocker hate if it's pure Shadowclash packs and b/c blockers are generally better to have in this format. Otherwise in Constructed, it's like Sieg--you can leave your best creatures out for Blade hits or Paladin bounce or worse--a Skyterror drop. Overall, I don't think it's that good, simply because I'd rather splash Holy Awe or just run some blockers creatures.

Well today we have a intresting card, Full Defensor

Even tho this card is very intresting there isn't much to be said about it. Full Defensor is a pure defensive weapon, but doesn't light already have enough defensive options? Light has already more blockers than any other civ. and even the main light deck (dimond cutter) runs almost all blockers. And why use this when u have better choices like Holy Awe (works great defensively and offensivly) and Screaming sunburst.

Constructed- 1/5 Lots of better cards are around
Limited- 3.2/5 this can be a nasty suprise for your opponet

final thought- Its not a crap card, in fact its quite good, but its just not needed in the current format. If we get a banning here like Yu-Gi-Oh did than this thing will see a while bunch more play

I don't see the advantages of giving all your creatures blocker for a turn. There are just too many ways to deal with blockers. And your opponent can just choose not to attack for that single turn. This thing is only decent as a Shield Trigger. Even then it pales in comparison to Holy Awe. Anyway I'm not sure if I'll even try this out.

I havenít done a whole lot of play-testing with Light to be honest. But the decks Iíve run across are already full of weenie blockers that turn into attackers after a Holy Awe & Diamond cutter hit the table. Full Defensor does not really benefit those decks.

Maybe itíll help multi-color decks with no blockers that are looking for blocking capability at times.

Iím just not seeing it right now though.

Constructed Rating 2.0
Limited Rating 2.5

Hey Everyone! I find this card very useful in any deck. If all of your creatures are blockers, chances are, your opponent won't get many attacks in. It's also a shield trigger, so you can activate it while getting attacked. It's also very cheap and cost-effective. You can add this to a fire deck to get some fire blockers too. All in all, a useful card.
Constructed: 4/5
Limited: 3/5 You won't be able to organize your deck to work with it as well here.
