this really should not prevent the destruction of monsters. nowhere on the text is that said or implied

Why? It works as intended. It didn't speficy what needs to be attacked (so it can be a monster or direct). It protects monsters because they can't be killed by 0 dmg (for example, you attacked with some high beater, they activate this, any dmg you would do with that monster is 0), it's normal ruling at work here.

It specifies damage. Attacking a monster in defence mode is NOT damage.they should fix the text in my opinion

Also, if I attack with 0, I should then recieve damage in return equal to the difference. That would be normal ruling at play
It seems that there is a bug with this trap that causes monsters to not be destroyed - which according to the text on the card, should not be how it works.

Actually, I was wrong. I looked up rulings for the card, and it appears that it does actually prevent monsters from being destroyed... which is ridiculous for a normal rarity trap card.

It works exactly the same as Waboku, outside of the 1 card cost

I'm glad you looked up the ruling. Regardless, that should be included in the text.

that would be because it's a cost for activation rather than discard via effect. Been that way since day one of DW and always trips people up.

Yeah, you really gotta pay attention to which cards discard others as a COST (Tribute to the Doomed) and which discard others as an EFFECT (Dragged Down into the Grave).

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.
Will this card be a staple in glad beasts?

Nope, impenetrable shield more versatile than this.
This card alone makes Destiny Board playable. Free Dark Necrofear dump and stall.
What rubbish is this??.. Remove dmg effect, it never said monster not destroyed. Tried just now, it protect the monster.

Worth the -1
So, in the game it says that it protectes your mosters by being destroyed... is this true or not? Does Duel Links follow the OCG or TCG format?

In the TCG, this card's effect does not protect your monsters from being destroyed by battle.
