First, which post are you responding to? xD
Noble arms of destiny and intrigue shield together still only protect you from one attack. Ludicrous.
Opponent attacks with Metalmorph, I activate this card to protect my monster, it gets destroyed anyway. Is it a bug or am I missing something?

The Monster card must in face up atk position to active the effect of card.
Used in 3 duels and didn’t work at all. Wasted my dream ticket.
noob joey
what will happen to amazoness sword woman if i equip it with intrigue shield?
will it....

a.reflect the battle damage to the opponent if the opponent monster is higher the ATK than your ASW which is 1500atk,ASW will not destroyed in battle. battle damage to opponent because of its 2nd trap passive effect?and also ASW will not be destroyed in battle.

which do you think guys is the result as a pro duelist nerds?

Obviously they used that combination in a video game. (Likely Tag Force Special, not sure there's any others that include both cards.)

Why does it look like evangalion lol i also think it fake at first
I don't see a real use in farm decks for this.
Holy Guard work on ALL your monsters, not only 1.(okay only at your turn)
Spirit Barrier give you the no damage to ALL monsters.
UG don't profit from the non-destruction effect, so even less use.
Don't forget, that 2+ attacks still kill your monster equipped with it, as it only 'negates' one attack.
Other thougts?
2 question: 1.if equip it with amazoness sword woman, the damage inflicted to opponent will be 0 or not?
2.econ take and equip with it,then the monster returns.Who is the one taking effect:"no battle dam" advantage.The one with the equip trap or the monster's owner, or both?
