Funnily enough, Hisoka himself is much less useful than his guardians. I guess they are his bodyguards for a reason.

Anyway, they are fine for protecting your Goliath Sphinx or whatever you want protecting. A cool little combo I've thought up to accompany them is using a Rings of Brighthearth while having out a second Guard. Activate their abilities on each other and copy up to two times with the rings, and you have two Shrouded Hisoka's Guard and up to two other creatures which are also protected from any Lightning Bolt or Terror. Of course, this would cost, in total, (6)(U)(U), so there are almost certainly better alternatives out there.

I tend to prefer Lightning greaves, but creatures with abilities such as this have their uses

This forces you to remove it first, since targeting anything else will cause any removal aimed at it to fizzle.

If you've got two of them, it eats removal spells!

I usually use this ability on something large but unprotected like Ludevic's Abomination forcing them to waste a removal on hisoka's guard before they can get to my heavy hitter.

4/5 Useful.

Well you could use untap cards and give every targeted creature shroud, that is kinda neat

tiggurix, pretty sure that wouldnt work, because it says "named" instead of "another". So you couldnt target a 2nd one with the first, and vice versa. Even if the ability is copied.

Anyways, if you save 2 mana in pocket, they will not try to use removal on your other creatures. I guess the tap ability when you want to spend that 2 pocketed mana next turn. Be careful, when you put the ability on the stack they might just blow their instant removal on the target, which wasnt an option before you put it on the stack.
