Protection is a Patience deck specific effect card. It gives Taunt to an ally monster of your choice and draws a card.

This is best used on monsters with high HP or saved for when you need to protect a monster with high attack. Can be cancelled out by Silence effects from cards like Penetration and Nacarat Jester.

Can also be very useful on monsters such as Mad Dummy, Mettaton NEO and Mettaton.

Small Bird can also counter this, as it can bypass the Taunt and, ever since Beta 26.0, will gain Charge if the owner's opponent has a Taunt or Armor monster on the board.
