Question,

this shield is worded to block physical attacks, if a creature is antimattered it's still a physical attack, it just helps rather than harms, but it still has to hit to actually deal the health.  My question is why does an antimattered creature still hit through this shield? 

if this belongs somewhere else I apologize, just figured this one made sense...maybe I should put it in the antimatter section instead.

Antimatter passes through EVERY shield, not just Phase Shield. Try it out sometime.

(I think ) the reason this is is because when a creature is antimatter'd, it no longer does damage. It deals out healing rather than damage, and healing can bypass shields because shields are intended to block damage. For example, if you have 6 creatures out, a Phase Shield, and a Feral Bond, the bond will still heal you, even with the shield. The same applies to all other forms of healing - Shard of Gratitude and Heal, to name a few, are unaffected by shields.

For single player - I love this shield
For PVP - I despise it.
Permanent control is usualy a must in order to beat a deck with multiple copies of Ps.
That means that this single card counters mono- Earth, Life, Light, Water, Air, Time and and Phase shieldless Aether (though theres few of those) Death decks may be able to bypass through poison but it's still a very serious damage reducer. Enthropy has the destroy ability, which again is a rare enough card in PVP. Gravity has momentum and many momentum decks (again rare) are built solely to counter Phase Shield reliant decks. Fire and darkness are great against it, pulvy too but then thats about it (I'm excluding all rainbow decks, which regardless probably wouldn't have more than 3 Perm controls). And now heres my problem; PVP is largely dominated by Fire, Darkness and Aether decks. I think that this domination revolves around this one card. Now, I know that there are many other fantastic reasons why these three are great PVP'rs and that if it wasn't this permanent it'd probably be some other permanent I'd have gripes with etc. But still.. I think PVP is hampered by lack of variety and that this card (or the lack of other elements ability to deal with it) is the root of the problem.

Sorry about the long rant.. I just got pwned by a Phase shield deck  :-[

18 Aether Pillars
6 Phase Dragons
6 Dimension Shields

It's the only deck I know to have a 99% win rate against AI-3.

Even with Fire Shields (the only thing that can damage Aetherial/Immortal creatures), it only takes 3 Phase Dragons to kill your opponent, considering they have 5 hitpoints, meaning they attack 5 times = 40 damage...

It doesn't have a 99% win against AI3. Gravity shield. And phase dragons have 6 hp, not 5.

But it's still a good deck :).

One of the best shields in the game if not the best.  Disappation shield is the only one that matches it.  I've got 6 dimensoinal shields in my deck.  The only problem is there is no point in even upgrading it, just 1 less quantum.

Since a while, antimatter doesn't pass through Dim Shield. So, it is another point against it.

one of the best shields in the game up with bonewall procrastination permafrost and dusk
Personally, and most people would agree, Procrastination and Dusk aer pretty crappy shields. Procras is a delay, and Dusk is based off luck. DS and BoneWall are guaranteed blocks, and im not sure about Perma. DS is one of my favorite cards of all time though, especially when buging my friends in PvP.

Obviously one of the most annoying cards in the entire game.

Good shield. Too bad it only lasts for 3 turns.
