Quote from quitequieterAnything with power greater than four or death touch kills jar jar. Not a great situation for you if you're trying to stay alive.
Quote from quitequieterI don't think jar jar is that great at keeping you alive. He blocks some stuff aetherling doesn't, but aetherling blocks dudes jar jar can't as well. And while you're using jar jar to block you're not closing out the game, which just gives your opponent more time to kill you.
