  • Effect returning a monster to hand is good and reusable, but slow.


The problem with Subterror decks is that all Subterror Behemoths are high-leveled monsters, so getting your first flip monster on the field to start Special Summoning can be a problem.

Guardian Statue works well in a Subterror deck by letting the bigger monsters trigger their Special Summoning Effects. He even has a similar playstyle to Subterrors by flipping himself down to reuse his effect.

Similar Effects

These monsters have similar types and attributes to Guardian Statue, with effects that similarly remove an opponent's monster from the field. Golem Sentry is basically this card but with higher defense. Medusa Worm is similar but by destroys the opponent's monster instead of returning to the hand.

"Once per turn, you can flip this card into face-down Defense Position."
Is this effect only activated when you flip it yourself? Or does it activate after it is attacked?

Only when you flip it yourself. That's what you call a Flip Summon. Flip effect is the one that activates when it is attacked
Guys, is this basically the same as Hane-Hane? in fact, it would be an even better card, i presume..

No, this is definitely worse than Hane-Hane because Hane-Hane's effect is a Flip Effect whereas this card's is a Flip Summon effect

But if you have a windstorm or enemy controller it's pretty much a gg
you get this through the card trader by donating 5 black orbs, 3 blue orbs and 12500 gold coins
