Tips, Related Cards, Rulings

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.

1. You can't chain this to counter trap cards

2. Turn self chain on. Then you can use second one after first one is negated and resolved by counter trap.
sad when spells and traps are more powerful than the actual archetypes. some arhetypes cant even function without staple spells and traps. not even there own spells and traps are equal or better than staples lmfao what a lame archetype we have

Why are you posting this here? Defense Draw's far from one of the strongest Spells/Traps in the game. (It's not weak, but it's certainly not better than your typical good archetype support that we already have.)

Defense draw is literally Enchanted Javelin and Jar of Greed in one. It's a great freaking trap card. Wish they actually gave smth like this as an event award, people would maybe use it unlike others.
Good for an Odion Chain reaction deck
And again... Konami give buff for burn and stall deck

Legend is half burn now and will always be
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].

Hopefully the same place where Pegasus gets his cards from the 'Creator' skill.
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.
how is this rated B- this is the best card in this box

It isnt. Take 1 hit and draw a card or use draining and in theory eat 2 attacks instead

It may work in exodia or card heavy decks
