Price/Power (2/5)
Brought down in price purely by a givaway event, has a very good chance at raising back into obscurity as this item is used. Still, the combination of a semi-decent attack and a full air block makes this an interesting prospect indeed. The goatee only works to strengthen this.

Countermeasures (4/5)
Mainly good for taking down air-based weapons like the Sword of Ari. Since it is single use this is of limited value, but still would provide a good defense and surprise move in an air based set.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
This upgrades to a full air multiuse blocker such as a Shield of Faerieland. No really cheap alternatives

Other Points (No Bonus)

Final Thoughts
Love the goatee-

Value 2/3: 8 icons and 100% air defense is decent for 2k, I put this near the Slippery Floor Potion in value while it remains cheap. It's also a lot cheaper than a Triple Turbo Dryer or Shield of Faerieland. Only slightly more useful than the inexpensive Double Dryer.

Tactical 4/6: This is only going to be worthwhile when facing mass air. If you know that your opponent is going to use a Sword of Ari or Ghostkersword next turn then this could put you ahead. Against other air-heavy weapons it probably isn't work a 1.2k bomb for a little bit of defense. The fact that this is only good for 1 turn diminishes it's tactical value as it's unlikely to be worth a space in your set.

Other 1/1: This has the potential to help give you an unexpected edge in a battle, and that's pretty cool. Still, it's range of use is very limited and it probably won't be helpful to the vast majority of battlers.
