Now we start reviewing the blockers for this week.  Today's card isn't very exciting, but hey, what can you do?  I didn't choose ths week (you can tell, since the cards are actually usable), so I can't complain.  Anyway, today we have a very simple card.

Aqua Guard
Cost: 1
Civilization: Water
Card Type: Creature
Race: Liguid People
• Blocker
This creature can't attack
Flavor Text: "I don't remember, and I don't care."
Power: 2000
Mana Generated: 1
Rarity: Common

Yeah.  A VERY basic card.

Civilization/Race: He's a water blocker, with the standard drawback of not being able to attack at all.  He's also a liquid person, which is the biggest reason anyone would use this card.  He can evolve into the powerful Crystal Lancer, or the rocks-my-world Crystal Paladin. 

Cost: He costs one mana.  Thus, he is a nice, cheap, chump blocker who you can easily accumulate enough mana to use.

Power: His 2000 power allows him to suicicide into cards such as Hulcus, and it stops BAT, Loco, and Kook Paloon in their tracks.  However, it is not enough to slow a Pyrofighter, which is the main reason many people use blockers...

Abilities: He can block.  Thus, he is weak to blocker-hate, but can save your neck and shields in a pinch.  He is bound by the fact he cannot attack at all, which he normally wouldn't want to do anyway.  He IS a chump blocker, remember.

Ok, now that I've reviewed these stats, let's see how they stack up.

Constructed overview: He sees play here for two reasons.  He's a chump blocker, and he's cheap evo-bait into Paladin/Lancer/Jouster.  Use him for these reasons only.  For other blocking purposes, I recommend Hunter Fish or Friday's card, which can at least take a Pyrofighter with it.  2/5

LImited overview: In limited, a blocker is a blocker.  If you think it'll help, draft him.  There are better in the set, but this guy can provide you with at least a temporary shield.  4/5

Friday:  A card I actually use and care about!
