General description:
I love this card. It's the 3rd hightest DEF for a 4 star in the game, and it has a great ability, which I have won in many ways too.

Uses:
This is a great card to hide behind and wait until your opponent's traps are gone and with not a lot of life points. He is great to stall your opponent until you can offer for a kill. Many times I have also won because of direct attacking. If you don't like losing 800 points just to inflict it to them, then power him up for a better deal.

Combos with other cards:
Unity. It is easy to get out 3 of these and finally use Unity and that is 6600 points.

Ways to counteract it:
Nobleman of Crossout would do well here. They wouldn't put it in Attack mode because of the obviouse reason that you would attack it. Magic Cylinder too. The pay to lose.

Strengths/Pros:
He stalls for just about as long as you want to. When you set him, wait for them to attack it then hit them with difference.

Weaknesses/Cons:
The only ones are his low attack power and the reason that you have to pay to attack, even with the low ATK.

Variations:
This also comes in DR2 as a Super Rare if I'm not mistaken.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork is okay relating to the effect. It doesn't exactly show it protecting something.

Overall rating:
I'd have to give it a 7
