Pixie Ring
Defender of the Weak

General description:
A lot of people don't realize this card's potential! Pixie Ring prevents the weakest monster ATK-wise from being targeted by an attack as long as there are 2 or more Attack Position monsters. Every deck should have at least 1... ... [read more]

Haha, everytime I make a new deck, I set Pixie Ring aside and think to myself "I'm actually gonna try it out this time" only to find myself putting back in with the rest of my commons. But yea great review! Brought up many points that have come to mind whenever I look at that card lol. Also though, with cards like Dupe Frog and Marauding Captain, as long as you control a monster with more attack than Dupe Frog or Marauding Captain, your opponent cannot attack. Like, play Marauding captain, special summon Blade Knight. Marauding Captain states you must attack him, but Pixie Ring says you can't. Same works for any card like that, like Solar Flare Dragon and Command Knight as well. Oh and people...I wouldn't use 2 Ring of Magnetism's...that's setting up for 2 card combos, which almost never help out a deck...I used to use Heart of Clear Water and Ring of Magnetism and I thought it was a great combo, just now I look back upon it in shame...lol. Also, use Raregold Armor over Ring of Magnetism anyday, as it has no drawback. Great review!

Wow, I never realized! I have many copies of this card, but I never thought of putting it in my deck. This would force my opponent into attacking my stronger monsters (I have a Blackwings deck) and would really help to protect my Gale the Whirlwind. Great review, and good luck!

If all my monsters have equal ATK, with 2 of them in Attack Position, and Pixie Ring activated, can my opponent attack?

No, they can't. Since they all have the same attack, they're all considered to have the lowest ATK. That actually got me during the ANPR Sneak Preview.

there is a small gap in this cards strategy. say there are 3 attack position cards you own with atks 1900,1400 and 1300 your opponent can still attack 1400 atk powered monster.
heres a plus and i think the card rule bends for it.
when you have 2 or more monsters with the same atk say 1300 and this is the weakest monster/only monster you have your opponent can't attack.
another strategy to beat this combo is to change the monsters attacks.
another thing is if my opponent rely's too much on it i can play a card like trap stun and do mayhem to my opponent.

Thank you for your comment! I don't want to sound rude, but I think you need to reread my review. If you hav3 monsters with different Attacks, then they aren't all protected by Pixie Ring. And I've already covered the rest in the review.

But thank you for your comment!
