This card is bugged. Monsters should still be destroyed after you activate this card.

Too bad junk deck is actually kickin some much bujin 🔥 !, guess junk synchron is getting popular at least for a while.
Duel Links is under OCG format so it's should be a UR card, because SR is not enough.
I got a ticket and didn't know what card to get and then I saw this one and thought "waboku"? But it's a different one and I'm surprised because it has helped a lot xd :o
This card cannot protect monsters in anime but in DL. lol
Recently, i used this card and my monster was destroyed. What happen with this? Was the effect got nerf also? Because before all the rebalancing and nerf my monster will not destroyed if i use this card
I feel like this is an underrated card. I don't know if it's due to the confusion of the ruling, or because it's not used a lot, but I've had more than a few duels where people honestly don't understand that it protects monsters for the whole turn, and will still try to attack me multiple times after I have used it. This card is a hidden gem in my Right Back at You deck.

It's definitely confusion over the ruling. You look at the card and think, ok they don't take damage that's fine. I can still 🔥 their monsters. Then you think to yourself, OK no way I missed something with a continuous effect that protects monsters, maybe it's a once per turn thing. Then you go read the ruling page and realize that Konami is lazy about errata.
Why defense draw still destroyed monster while this card doesn't?

A quote stolen from Frapplejacks on Reddit. "Duel Links uses the most updated TCG printing for the effect, yet uses OCG rulings. This is why we have some dumb 🔥 like Hollowed Life Barrier having battle protection despite it not being listed anywhere on the card, or having archaic wording of effects like Dark Elf. Darkness approaches got an erratum released online, but has yet to have a printing
This card should be SR or UR. Even the cost is just discarding 1 card is too good. In Addition, your monsters cannot be destroyed by battle in the turn you activate this card. Although, There is no description about "monsters" in the text

I think because damage taken is 0, 0 atk monster can't destroy another 0 atk monster so the card make atk damage from their monster to your monster became 0 so your monster not destroye imho
For some reason this card does not activate dark worlds and I don’t know why...

budgetter glad beasts sure. but impenetrable comes in the same pack so its debateable

main advantage of that card is because you protect your monster and don't get dmg so it's is like both effects of impenetrable attack together. As a bônus it's protect you from effect dmg too.
If I have to choose between cloning and hallowed life barrier, which do u think is better? I can't take both because I wanna have pairs of the card or should I take both? With one each?

hallowed life barrier is a cheap Impenetrable Attack with a cost of a discard yet does both effects of impenetrable attack so i prefer it, cloning is a drop reward for kaiba i believe so i won't go for it with a ticket
