Protection Combo

You can turn on Self Chain, and activate Enchanted Javelin after you activated Defense Draw, the sequence is very important because you want Enchanted Javelin to resolve first in order to gain LP. You cannot use Draining Shield because it will stop the attacking monster from attacking.


You can also include Impenetrable Attack as an alternative if your deck is themed around negating Battle Damage, as a form of protection.

This is good 4 when u want damage redcued to 0, it all ows u to draw 1 card. This effect is similar 2 the trap, Jar of Greed. JAR of greed [trap card, normal trap card] allows u to draw 1 card from the top of your deck [not the bottom]. Send this card to the Graveyard after activation. [After].

This card is pretty good, basicly a winged kuribo without card disadvantage.

Nope. Winged kuriboh save you 1 turn regardless of any number of monster your oppenent have. Defense Draw only save you from 1 attack. You are still vulnerable and open to attack when you only have this card in backrow.

It may work in exodia or card heavy decks
