DRY 1337

Well I’m back from a nice holiday break and ready to start the New Year with some thrilling COTDs.  Berochika, Channeler of Suns has a very intriguing effect and packs a very serious punch.  It’s a wonder why nobody has picked up this cool little gem and abused its sickening effect.


Berochika, Channeler of Suns


Cost: 5


Race: Mecha Del Sol


Civilization: Light


Type: Creature


Rules Text:

·         When you put this creature into the battle zone, if you have 5 or more shields, add the top card of your deck to your shields face down.


Power: 5000


The Light Civilization is almost always on point when it comes to having adequate power to mana ratios.  It’s a race that doesn’t rely on cheap and dirty tricks but instead uses brute force to get the job done.  Berochika certainly doesn’t disappoint.  For the cost of 5 mana we get a beefy creature with 5000 power.  This type of ratio is definitely acceptable and allows Berochika to have its way with most of the creatures being used in today’s meta. 


Of course the good news doesn’t stop there.  Berochika, Channeler of Suns comes with a dominating effect that can be abused to no end.  As soon as you summon this fattie, as long as you have at least 5 shields you’ll be able to pick up the top card form your deck and add it to your shields face down.  The good news is that the Light Civilization is that it’s great at stalling so you’ll have no problem getting an extra shield by turn 5.  In addition, once you use this effect, not only do you get the benefit of the effect, it’ll be ready to rip your opponent to shreds with its 5000 power.  Your opponent will definitely want to use Corile on it but he’d pretty much be giving you the game. ;)


The Good:  A powerful creature with a dominating effect.


The Bad:  The Light Civilization already has too many wonderful 5 mana creatures. (i.e. Petrova, and Mist Rias)


The Ugly:  You don’t get the effect if your opponent broke any shields early.  However, you still get the 5000 power.



Constructed Rating: 4.5/5 – Most light decks that I know of have plenty of stall so this creature will fit right in.  It’s a no-brainer. :D


Limited Rating: 4.5/5 – It’s hard to keep 5 shields by turn 5 in limited but the 5000 power will still be a big help.



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!
