Today we take a look at
Stop Defense's long lost brother, Block
Select 1 of your
opponent's monsters and shift it to Defense
This card is basically a
compromise between Fissure and Tribute
to the Doomed. You get to pick what
monster you want to use the effect on, but you don't
destroy it immediately, and you don't have to
discard a card. Of course, odds are, it will
be destroyed when you attack. Otherwise, you
just wasted a card =/
This thing makes a nice
counter to the standard F/S deck which now packs Dark
Elf (I knew it would be
popular) and 7 Colored Fish along
with La Jinn and Summoned Skull. Basically,
using Block Attack is a free kill against any of the
above, since their defense is so low. However,
I have seen very few decks actually use this card (I
haven't experimented with it yet), but the ones I've
seen end up doing pretty good.
Block Attack + Barrel
Dragon = If you can't destroy their BEWD
with BD's effect, hit them in Defense mode!
Dream Clown: Yay, they
get to destroy one of your monsters! -_-;;;
Should YOU play
I would sideboard it at
least. If your opponent runs a F/S or Barrel
Dragon (or a hybrid of both), it will help.
If they run a defense deck/Exodia, it will probably
be worthless. It's a situational card.
Block Attack deserves a 3.2.
It makes a nice counter to standard F/S decks, but
it's very situational, as your opponent may play a
defensive stall deck. In that case, use Stop
