They will never limit this card.
One floodgate as soon as your opponent want's to activate it and that's bye bye. Same goes for canadia or econ take.

Same thing happens with Amazoness Onslaught, Penalty box and Magic Time hammer.

Damn son, I just mentioned like 6 different ways to counter this card, 3 of them are with R/N rarity cards, next time check your facts before asking for limits.

This card is far from being broken. It doesn't protect your monster from being banish, E-Con and Canadia. Although you could just banish PotG ...

Of course not, because ACTUAL overpowered broken cards don't get nerfed, only meaningless cards no one even used in the first place.

"One floodgate as soon as your opponent wants to activate it"

By the time your opponent wants to activate this card, the summon window (and thus the chance to use floodgate) has passed a long time ago.

Should have been a SR at least. This is the only generic "N" card which is widely being played, which tells something is off..

Meta decks have no problem with this card.

Mostly non-meta decks have a hard time dealing with it.

If broken cards like this one, wall of disruption, drowning mirror force, canadia, etc.. didn't exist casual cheap decks would perform too well.

Those cards are necessary to make the game livelier by forcing you to buy new cards.

Exactly, a game becomes much better to play when everyone are willing to make some effort by purchasing contents.

Free-To-Play players whine too much.

Just use some cash on a meta deck, cards like power of the guardian will stop being a problem

Yeah, the structure decks are super cheap and the sales can give you great box cards for only a few dollars. My favorite are the 99 cent UR's, and the reopenable pack deals. With reopenable ive gotten the card i wanted most of the time because resetting it increases your odds a lot. It's really cheap if you take advantage of sales

Next time, try to build a deck with 3 copies of this card. You will see that it is not that easy to win with it.

Of course, opponents who have no counters to this card just rage quit at the sight of it, but most don't because they can deal with it.

Observe how they deal with it to learn how to fight Power of the Guardians

Just equip this with Jinzo. Then it's over. Provided that you have the right spell cards for defense

Cosmic Cyclone, Darklord Desire, Dark Magic Attack, Dark Magical Circle, Elementsaber Molehu are for the most part UR super hard to get and deck specific.
From this list, Cosmic cyclone is what I would personally recommend because it is not deck specific.
If you are using a dragon deck consider using Arkbrave dragon.
If they have 3 PotG equipping 3 monsters it gets rid of all of them.

Man, I don't think the guy is asking for an UR or a SR card as a solution for his problem.

If he has a hard time with PotG he's likely a beginner who can't afford more than Rare or Normal cards.

This would help the other beginners more too.
won't be surprised if KOMONEY limited this next card :Y

Try using a deck based around 3 copies of this, you will find it hard to win against experienced players.
When you are not used to this it does look OMG broken though.

Oh yes, the usual "They better not touch my broken overpowered crutch, else I can't play waaaaah waaaaah" comment xD

This card really needs to be limited to 1, or reworked in such a way that it can't be used as it does, i.e not being completely broken and overpowered.

I find it really sad that people are so 🔥 at this game they need cards like this as a crutch to even have a chance...
Magician girls effect of halving the ATK for some reason cause a bug that the ATK increase from PotG is cancelled and only DEF increases. Idk how often people read this but...... maybe it was not a good idea to post this

Its like the ultimate 🔥 card to run no skill involved in playing this 🔥 at all.

Cards like this are the reason why I now believe that every deck, without exception, needs to have back row removal to be playable. And yeah I know that sounds obvious, but at the same time it means that other archetypes, decks, and strategies that don't are categorically inferior to those that do, and that kind of sucks.

Non-destruction monster-removal is the better counter against this card though.
This card should be banned, it breaks almost any other equipment card

This card is so easy to counter. You only need to run a Spell/Trap removal or anything that can get rid of a monster without destroying it (or flipping it face down)

Dark Cavalry can still be defeated. Use a row-wide remover like
R - Righteous Justice or Thousand Energy, or Mirror Force, summon effect such as Yaksha...

Dark Cavalry is far from immune.
Use this card with another monster and yubel terror incarnate= Lays 🔥 flavor
