Hanusa, Radiance Elemental- Super Rare- #S1
Here is my Short review today (though not as short
as yesterdays >.<) Hanusa, Radiance Elemental
Well people I'd have to say I am very disapointed in
this card, sure he is a 9500 double breaker, has the
highest base attack, but you only get that for 7
mana. I'd rather have a Kingdepthcon for 7 (the same
amount) and get a double breaker unblockable. Now
lets look at the bright side of this card. Just
plainly put nothing, not even Gran Gure, Space
Guardian, can defeat this dude in combat. The only
way to defeat him is to have him attack then you
attack this guy with something like a Roaring
Great-Horn, or you could kill it with a Kill Spell
(Terror Pit), and last you could bounce it with aqua
sniper or Spiral Gate.
Constructed- 3/5 Im Just stuck half way on this
card, but I think there are better White cards you
can use *cough*Urth, Purifying Elemental*cough*
Limited- 5/5 A 9500 double breaker is nothing to
scoff at in this format.
Final Thought- I have come to a conclusion about
this card: Only play him in Limited, otherwise there
are better choices in my oppinion, if you don't
agree E-Mail me.
Double Breaker (This card breaks 2 shields.)
The sky was scorched by Dragons’ fire, and the
earth was gouged by elementals’ rays. The battle
raged for seven nights and seven days.
Base Set, S1/S10, Super Rare
Hanusa is a creature
of light and an Elemental, which currently only
affects one other card (Iocant,
Still, that’s more than most other races affect.
For a whopping cost of 7 mana,
you get a whopping Power of 9500. This seems very
impressive at first, and is the highest base Power
in the game right now, but for
7 mana, it needs to exceed the “1000 Power
per mana” of the 4 mana or less crowd. So an
extra 2500 Power is okay, but it needs more…
…and it gets it: this is a Double Breaker as
well. Nothing wrong with being a double
breaker-it’s one of the most potent creature
effects right now in my opinion.
Simply put, this is a great card for mono-light
decks, or multi-color decks with Light in them
if Light is going to be their source for heavy
hitters. Just summon and destroy!
4.25/5-Probably the top dog for Light decks. The
only thing to worry about is creature removal, and
every creature fears that.
4/5-Sort of a tie between this and
Urth has the advantage
of untapping at the
end of each of your turns, so it takes effort to
take Urth down through
battle. This is so huge that it takes some effort
to bring this down through battles. Both are
Double Breakers. Urth
is only Power 6000 though.
5/5-the only reason not to use it is if it is like
one of only three Light cards you pulled. If your
opponent doesn’t pull any creature removal, or
wastes it early on, they will pay.
It’s big, it’s beefy… and best of all,
it looks to still be
Right now, Hanusa is nothing more than a really big
beat-stick. It’s the biggest creature in the game.
Anything it attacks is going down, including two
shields at once. Being the biggest creature on the
board doesn’t make it insanely amazing though, just…
well… big. It will see increasingly less play as the
days go on.
In draft, you’ll usually be found saying “I win
because I’ve got the biggest creature in the game,
derp derp derp.” First pick, as nearly nothing can
take it down.
Oh, and did I mention it’s big?
Constructed - 3
Limited - 5
"The Big Daddy."
Hanusa, Radiance Elemental: Light Creature, 7-Mana,
9500 Attack, Double Breaker. Do I really have ask?
This is a good card; no, a GREAT card. Hanusa,
Radiance Elemental is THE highest attack creature in
the game right now, minus any unique abilities or
Spell cards. I mean, seriously: a 7-Mana, Double
Breaker, 9500 Attack Creature with NO drawbacks? Not
even Gran Gure, Space Guardian can block this
creature and be around the next turn. I don't think
I have to go into detail about this card.
Pros: "a 7-Mana, Double Breaker, 9500 Attack
Cons: CAN be destroyed using removal Spell cards, I
I would highly recommend playing this card, at least
one, if you are playing Light at all. Sure, Urth,
Purifying Element costs one less Mana and has 6000
Attack, but for an extra Mana you could get a
creature with +3500 extra Attack. In Limited; first
pick. DUH! =P
