Kizar Basiku, the Outrageous
Type: Evolution
Civilization: Light
Race: Initiate
Mana Cost: Five (5)
Rules Text:
*Evolution - Put on one of your Initiates.
*Blocker (Whenever an opponent's creature attacks, you may tap this creature to stop the attack. Then the 2 creatures battle.)
*Fire stealth (This creature can't be blocked while your opponent has any fire cards in his mana zone.)
*Double breaker (This creature breaks 2 shields.)
Power: 8500
Rarity: Rare
Set: Thundercharge of Ultra Destruction
Power/Cost: You can’t expect any better than 8500 power for just five mana. Aside from having an incredible power to cost ratio, Kizar Basiku comes with Double breaker. Factor in mana acceleration and you could feasibly be swinging with him on turn four. Fun stuff.
Civilization/Race: There have been fourteen Initiate creatures released so far. That’s good enough to tie them as the largest race in Duel Masters. There is also another Initiate evolution in addition to Kizar Basiku. The double-tapper, Craze Valkyrie, is a solid card with nice combo potential. Kizar Basiku has three main creatures you should use as Evo-bait for him: Sarius, Miele, and Magris. None are outstanding but they’re at least average.
Effects: Let’s run through Kizar Basiku’s many abilities one by one to make things easier. First on the list is Blocker. You will normally be attacking with him, so Kizar will be tapped and unable to block on your opponent’s turn. It could still come in handy though when you’re in a pinch. On the flip side, Paladin really screws this guy over just like Ladia Bale. Fire Stealth is the next big ability Kizar possesses. Water and Darkness are probably the best Stealth effects to have, but I would guess at least 40% of the decks out there run Fire. Being unblockable goes well with Kizar’s final ability, Double breaker. Cheap creatures that can swing for two are always nice.
Limited: 3/5
Rom, Vizier of Tendrils is the only compatible creature to evolve from in Thundercharge. Fortunately Rom is only a common and has a decent ability, which in turn boosts Kizar Basiku’s usefulness. Jump on this guy if you get two or more Initiates to use as bait.
Constructed: 4/5
In the regular deck-building format, this guy is even more deadly. One of the decks I’m working on right now has both Valkyrie and Kizar Basiku in it. Keep an eye out for them in a report sometime down the road.
