<Type> Block: This monster ability will stop the first applicable attack that would affect the creature. This is a “dumb defense” in that the monster cannot choose when to use it. Any attack that falls under the listed Effect, Delivery, or Qualifier will be stopped.
For example, a “Poison Block” would stop a “Poison Enfeeble” or a “30 Poison Paranoia,” while a “Paranoia Block” would only stop the latter of the two. A “Spell Block” would stop either a “20 Spell Flame” packet or a swing for “10 Spell Ice,” while a “Flame Block” would only stop the Flame Evocation Bolt. It cannot be used as a defense against touch-casting. When used, the monster should call “<Type> Block.”
