Evaluation

Will work well if you have a high ATK monster on the field and can remove all monsters your opponent controls.

It happends that the faced up monsters in defence dont atack. Its an error or did i missunderstand the efect. I though that every faced up monsters Will attack even if they are not in atack position. The card says nothing about that.

That keeps throwing me off guard, too. The card text implies that even face-up defense position monsters are switched to attack position and have to attack, but they don't. This is either a bug or a poor card explanation, and I hope that it gets some attention by the devs.

It's poor explanation, the ruling for this card says it only affect opponent's monsters "that can attack".

Basically yeah, they should errata the text to make it clearer.

Yeahhhh no. If that's battle mania. It merely works if you have a high atk monster and a low atk monster so you trick your opponent into attacking the low atk monster to force them to attack to the high atk one

It says only face up monsters. But it didn’t mention anything about whether it was defense position or attack position.

Wrong. Its when they declared an attack. Learn to read.

You can stall a few turns with this card + Aurora Wing, when played right. Due to the wording of the card monsters your opponent controls can't attack any other monsters OR your life points for the rest of the turn.

Will it force mosters with 0 ATK to attack?

Think this card is bugged, i use it to try to protect lord of D while i have a darkflare dragon i summoned with the summoning flute card and i can only target lord of D as the protector

You should learn your cards. The very card you are trying to protect is that same thing preventing you from protecting it. XD

Works well with Insect Queen, because everytime she destroys a monster, she special summon a token with 100 ATK in ATK position.

Staunch defender appears broken? Could not activate. Yes card was face up.

yes bc even though its a direct attack, they are still declaring an attack, regardless of the target. now is staunch defender said if your opponent declares an attack on a monster then it wouldnt bc of the fact that they attack directly.
