Shield trigger (When this creature is put into your hand from your shield zone, you may summon it immediately for no cost.)
■ When you put this creature into the battle zone, destroy one of your opponent's creatures that has power 1000 or less.
A creature with the shield trigger ability is read as the following:
Shield Trigger (When this creature is put into your hand from your shield zone, you may summon it immediately for no cost.)
Depending on the card, the reminder text may be committed.
Due to the ability, it allows you to summon creatures during your opponents turn if shields are broken. Creatures such as
Aqua Surfer and Moel, Love Sniper can act as additional defense as acting as removal.
While this allows you to put creatures into the battle zone for no cost, these creatures have a high cost to power ratio.
As they are summoned during your opponents turn, they are allowed to attack and have a pseudo-speed attacker ability as they are in the battle zone at the start of your next turn.
Often the ability of Shield Trigger increases the usual cost of a creature by its usual cost to power ratio by +2, or between 1-3. Cards such as Balza, Seeker of Hyperpearls or Closed, Destroyer of Secret Room that have both Blocker and Shield Trigger often cost even more due to the extra defensive capabilities.
Cards such as
Alphadios, Lord of Spirits and 5000GT, Riot can be used to prevent shield trigger creatures from being put into the battle zone.
As they are a
For No Cost ability, they are susceptible to Magnum, Allshot Puppet. Gravitz Zeta, Lord of Extinction can also be used to destroy the first creature put into the battle zone.
