This spell requires a whopping 10 lessons in play before it can be cast. That's quite a challenge. If you are going to put that much time and effort into playing a card, then you're going to want it to do something fabulous, like "win the game". Surely, some of you are thinking this card qualifies, as when it is played, you can't be damaged by your opponent. Woohoo! You play "Defence!" and then break into a little victory dance, because you know your opponent can't hurt you on their turn. Patiently, your opponent lets you hoof it up for a while. Once the dust settles, they'll smile and play that Venomous Tentacular Juice in their hand. Oops! Forced card drawing is not damage. I guess you lose after all! Don't be lulled into a false sense of confidence because of this card. And if you want good advice, listen to your football coach. They'll tell you that the best defense is a good offense. When you have 10 lessons down, don't try to avoid losing. Try to win instead. It works much better.

Rating: 2


For 10 power, blocking all damage isn't that good. It takes quite a while to get up to 10 power these days. (please don't tell me that I said it takes a short time to get up to 10 power in other reviews. I'm right on both of them!) If you find that you are getting creature damage use Wingardium Leviosa! instead. If it's spell damage use cards like Injured and Restoration Potion. I've never used this card and never will.

Rating: 1.5


Unless you plan on blocking some major, life threatening damage, I wouldn't recommend this version of damage prevention. It is a bit expensive, but works superbly. Most of the time a good Sloth Grip can do almost as good a job for a lot cheaper. Though, this is only uncommon, if you think you will be able to make good use of it fast enough, go for the gold. ;-)
