PROTECT YOUR EFFECT MONSTERS If the strategy of your Deck requires that you have a certain Effect Monster on the field to gain the benefit of its effect, you will need to make sure that your monster is protected. "Equip Spell Card that is perfect for this task, if your monster has 1300 ATK or less. If you are playing a Deck that uses mostly WATER monsters, "Maiden of the Aqua", can be an important part of your Deck. By equipping her with "Heart of Clear Water" she can no longer be the target of effects or destroyed as a result of battle. Change "Maiden of the Aqua" to Defense Position next turn, and your opponent will not be able to destroy her in battle even though she is protecting your Life Points. - click here for another Dueling Tip.
