Card Text:
Whenever you attack, put a shield counter on target attacking creature. Until end of turn, it gains "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, remove a shield counter from it. If you do, draw a card." (If a creature with a shield counter on it would be dealt damage or destroyed, remove a shield counter from it instead.)
Card Number:
4/29/2022 If the attacking creature loses its last shield counter at the same time it deals combat damage to a player (for example, if the attacking creature has trample and would be dealt damage by a blocker), then you will not be able to pay the cost of removing a counter when the triggered ability resolves.
4/29/2022 Neither the triggered ability that puts a shield counter on a target attacking creature nor the triggered ability that removes a shield counter from it are optional.
4/29/2022 Shield counters don't prevent players from sacrificing creatures.
4/29/2022 Removing a shield counter in this way isn't the same as regenerating a creature.
4/29/2022 If a permanent that would be dealt damage has more than one shield counter on it, that damage is prevented and only one shield counter is removed.
4/29/2022 If a permanent with a shield counter is dealt unpreventable damage, that damage will be dealt and a shield counter will still be removed.
4/29/2022 A creature with a shield counter on it may still be destroyed by state-based actions if it has damage marked on it equal to its toughness or has been dealt unpreventable damage by a source with deathtouch.
4/29/2022 “Shield” is not an ability that creatures have and shield counters are not keyword counters. If a creature with a shield counter loses its abilities, the shield counter will still protect it as normal.
