Evaluation

Rating7.5 /10

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.

Tips

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.

Why doesn’t this card work against Dark Magical Circle?

Because DMC is UR and this one is less rare. So your activation priority goes down. Try to also use a more expensive card and see what happens.

Always funny to watch someone lose a duel by ramming their monster into this while it's facedown

Known Issue reading ftw! To troll you: It's bugged. They will fix it in 2.9 or so(I think?).

This card is a lot better now than when the game got released. Surprised it isn't getting more attention being in the Card Trader again.

Because back then 95% players don't have econ.

Regardless, econ was still used in most decks back then. With stuff like Inverse Universe, Ojama Country, and Super Rush Headlong existing, it is definitely better. Also being immune to cards like Tribute of the Doomed and Magic Triangle of the Ice Barrier when Set can be useful. People would just rather use meta decks.

Why are people wasting EX jewels and UR ticket on this when you could just go into the card trader's inventory?

i made a pretty good deck with him:
3 BSG
3 EH Woodsman
2 EH Ocean
1 EH Clayman
1 King of Swamp
1 Gaia the fierce knight
3 Inverse Universe
2 Mirror Wall
2 Wall of Disruption
2 Polymerization

Aditional deck:

2 EH Terra Firma
1 Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion
1 EH Thunder Giant
1 UFOroid Fighter

i'm thinking in change gaia for another warrior with a good fusion, like EH Neos or Notable Blader, but i'm not sure

Other option, more consistent, but less technical, since you cant tribute BSG when he is no more usefull in field

I call 🔥 on the vagabound challenges. Gardnas effect activated even when it was the "no effect activation" challenge. So it should have stayed in defense position after being attacked.

I'm with you on the Vagabond "No effect" crap. I made a deck filled with high stat effect monsters like Boar Soldier and the like. Some of them still activated their effects. Like wtf?

No effect activations meaning any effect you have to activate doesn't work

Because it doesn't stop the negative effects

Same. Used all 3 UR tickets on it straightaway. Might do some Ojama Land shenanigans with it at some point

(Set Gardna, let enemy attack it, then on your turn use Ojama monster (ideally fusion summon Ojama Knight or King) to switch ATK and DEF values and attack with surprise 2600 ATK Boomstick.

But why did they remove from card trader? I could use tickets on another card :(

If used in an ojama deck BSG will be an offensive powerhouse with 2600 attack.

Yup, can beat most monsters under Ojama Country, even BEWD.
