|Shield Trigger creature |
(Shīrudo Torigā Jū)
|Water / Creature |
■ When you put this creature into the battle zone, you may choose a creature in the battle zone and return it to its owner's hand.
|Fire / Creature |
■ When you put this creature into the battle zone, destroy one of your opponent's creatures that has power 1000 or less.
A creature with the shield trigger ability is read as the following:
|Shield Trigger (When this creature is put into your hand from your shield zone, you may summon it immediately for no cost.)|
Depending on the card, the reminder text may be committed.
Due to the ability, it allows you to summon creatures during your opponents turn if shields are broken. Creatures such as Aqua Surfer and Moel, Love Sniper can act as additional defense as acting as removal.
While this allows you to put creatures into the battle zone for no cost, these creatures have a high cost to power ratio.
As they are summoned during your opponents turn, they are allowed to attack and have a pseudo-speed attacker ability as they are in the battle zone at the start of your next turn.
- The highest costing Shield Trigger creatures is Atlantis, Deepsea Evangelist at 10 mana. This is followed by Holy, Flash Guardian, Mauchu, One Extreme, Duenurse, Three Extremes, and Trap Giant each costing 9.
- Creatures such as Javier Nature and Express Dragoon are Quasi-Vanilla creatures that have no abilities other than Shield Trigger. However, this prevents them from being affected by Vanilla support cards.
- Often the ability of Shield Trigger increases the usual cost of a creature by its usual cost to power ratio by +2, or between 1–3. Cards such as Balza, Seeker of Hyperpearls or Closed, Destroyer of Secret Room that have both Blocker and Shield Trigger often cost even more due to the extra defensive capabilities.
