DRY 1337



For the past few sets, the Fire Civilization has committed itself to being unrivaled when it comes to masochism.  Today we feature a card that keeps this momentum going.  Eviscerating Warrior Lumez is another one of those weenie nukers that manages to kill itself.  Let’s find out how it works.


Eviscerating Warrior Lumez


Cost: 3

Race: Armorloid


Civilization: Fire


Type: Creature

Rules Text:

  • Wave striker (While 2 or more other creatures in the battle zone have "wave striker," this creature has its Wave Strikerability.)
    Wave StrikerWhen you put this creature into the battle zone, destroy all creatures that have power 2000 or less.


Power: 2000


In comparison to the previous wave striker creatures, Eviscerting Warrio Lumez displays a better power ratio.  For 3 mana we get a creature with 2000 power.  This is still not a favorable ratio but it at least comes with a nifty little nuking ability.  However the real problem is that this creature is wave striker, which means that unless you have 2 other wave strikers in the field it does nothing.  This is really unfortunate because if the effect could truly work on turn 3 we would be able to really cause some damage.  The reason why this creature’s effect does not work until turn 4 is because as long as you’re the only one playing wave strikers (which is usually the case) you will not have enough on the field by turn 3.


Fortunately, once you do have enough wave strikers you’ll have a really cheap nuke.  At only 3 mana you can clear out all creatures with power 2000 or less.  It’s pretty devastating but unfortunately this creature dies in the process.  In order to prevent this you can go with Merlee, a Light Civilization wave striker, and power up Lumez so that it doesn’t kill itself.  Merlee is also great because it’s one of the few wave striker creatures that cost only 2 mana.


Overall this creature has a great cost and a great effect.  However, with all of the control being used in today’s meta, it’s difficult to maintain a constant supply of wave striker creatures in the battle zone.  Without this key ingredient this creature is useless.


The Good:  Only 3 mana for an ability that’s identical to Burst Shot.


The Bad:  It suffers the drawbacks of wave strikers.


The Ugly:  Once it kills itself it means that you’re back down to 1 less wave striker.



Constructed Rating: 2.5/5 – It’s a good effect but unless there are other wave strikers in the battle zone you can’t really do anything.  The effect is still pretty useful for a 3 mana creature so it’s worth a shot.


Limited Rating: 4/5 – It’s decent in limited.  I’d recommend using it.


Please feel free to post your comments, questions, and/or objections on the Message Board and I’ll be more than happy to respond.  Happy dueling!
