Bodyguard is a great intercept card for Metris. It's exceptionally cheap, and can allow you to setup your board with the generally weak allies that Metris has. Although it does not have the redirect property of Misdirect, it can be healed(particularly from Apothecary) and has a chance to not be destroyed, as compared to the 100% of Misdirect. Decks focusing on Assassin, Poison, Brigands, or simply Lackey will always appreciate Bodyguard.
