Category for Shield Saver

Shield Saver is keyword shared among each of the 5 monocolored civilizations.


While it is not keyworded on them, the Shield Saver effect is used on cards in the TCG, Nastasha, Channeler of Suns and Pulsar Tree during DM-07 and DM-08.

It enables the player to sacrifice a creature with the ability to protect a shield. This can help the player protect some Castles or prolong his survival. Note that the shield must be broke, if the opponent uses an effect that simply returns shields to the hand such as Tyranno Link Nova, Shield Saver cannot be used. The same applies to break substitution effects such as those from Bolmeteus Steel Dragon. And as it is a substitution effect, other effects that prevent creatures from being destroyed such as Grand Cross Catastrophe do not allow a creature to save a shield multiple times.
