Big Shield Gardna (BSG) is one of the well known monster cards that has been introduced since the original series. With a high DEF of 2600, you are very likely to inflict defense battle damage when the opponent attacks this set card. However, BSG is defeated easily if the opponent has more than one monster on the field to forcibly trigger BSG’s effect provided they have the LP to tank the first hit.


BSG is best used with lockdown decks or as a tribute fodder due its vulnerable effect. Avoid having too many BSGs in your deck if you are not building a lockdown deck as its effect is a double edged sword and should not remain on the field for too long once flipped face-up.

How do you get the other EX stones necessary to get this? I can only get 200 by reward and Bakura isnt dropping any.

Practically impossible to get enough EX with Bakura. What a pain. Not worth the effort any more.

Agree. It seems impossible to get Gardna. I achieved all the missions, and got all the EXA tokens, but after that Bakura only doles out 4 EX at a time, very very rarely. How many bloody Archfiend Empresses do I need? The only real value of this event has been to stack up the coins and the UR/SR tokens for future use at the card trader.
When they bring back the first two packs, they should also reintroduce the cards they removed froh the card trader in february which was way too early (like this fine card)

I still cannot reach to 300 Ex stones even I have over 5.5M+ point of the event. This motherf Bakura seem to drop just 4 Ex stones per 20 battles.
