Target 1 face-up monster you control; equip this card to that target. Once per turn, while the equipped monster is in Attack Position, it cannot be destroyed by battle. You take no battle damage from attacks involving it.
When a Defense Position monster you control is targeted for an attack: Change that Defense Position monster to face-up Attack Position. Then, if the attacking monster is destroyed by that battle and sent to the Graveyard: Inflict damage to your opponent equal to that monster's original ATK in the Graveyard.
Target 1 Quick-Play Spell Card in your Graveyard, except "Quick Booster"; shuffle that target into the Deck. If this card you control is destroyed by your opponent's card and sent to your Graveyard: You can add 1 Quick-Play Spell Card from your Deck to your hand, except "Quick Booster".
When this card is Normal Summoned, you can select 1 monster your opponent controls. The selected monster cannot attack or be Tributed, while this card remains face-up on the field. During each of your End Phases, pay 500 Life Points or destroy this card.
I don't like this event because is boring, I play it only for gems. My favourite event is dd tower. I know gives not very good rewards (except for windrose), but I like this event for its style, it's so original...
Agree with you, it’s quite hard to get free gems if all of your char already maxed out. I usually duel a gate LD to get a lot extra gems, but since gx came out, komoney minimize the rate of gems drop and also, recently they removed the skill from dropping again if you already got it. So, yeah for me, altough the rewards from duel-a-thon isn’t that good, but at least we got gems.
