Guard Strike is a keyword.

Details

This appears on creature card types and spells.

After a card with Guard Strike is added to your hand from your shields, you are able to show it to your opponent, choose one of your opponents creatures and prevent it from attacking that turn.

While similar to Shield Trigger or Strike Back, the card remains in your hand after being shown.

It is similar to the "Prin Effect", but it only prevents a creature from attacking, and only for the current turn.

Many cards have received new versions of themselves with the Guard Strike ability, but new cards such as Bolshack Momoking and Dolmark-2, Shadow Warrior have also been released.

Reminder Text

Guard Strike (When you add this CARD TYPE from your shield zone to your hand, you may reveal it to your opponent and choose one of your opponent's creatures. That creature can't attack this turn.)
