DRY 1337


It’s time to look at the “Godfather” of all Mecha Del Sols… Er, I mean Godmother.  Petrova, Channeler of Suns is absolutely the most famous, loved, hated, hyped, broken, and feared card from the entire Light Civilization.  Let’s review the stats.


Petrova, Channeler of Suns


Cost: 5

Race: Mecha Del Sol


Civilization: Light

Type: Creature

Rules Text:

·         When you put this creature into the battle zone, choose a race other than Mecha Del Sol. Each creature of that race gets +4000 power.

·         Whenever your opponent would choose a creature in the battle zone, he can't choose this one. (It can still be attacked and blocked.)

Power: 3500

By now almost every Duel Masters player, both new and old, has heard of the legendary creature known as Petrova (a.k.a. PET).  Because of this familiarity, there’s no need to really address Petrova’s mana to power ratio.  Let’s just say 3500 is good enough.  It’s certainly enough to escape Burst Shot and Searing Wave, which makes it evident that Petrova was designed to stick around for a while.  The other great thing about Petrova is the fact that your opponent cannot target it with spells or effects.  This means that despite your opponent’s efforts, it cannot be “Coriled”, “Vised”, “Terror Pitted”, “Spiral Gated”, “Natural Snared”, etc.  Let’s also include the fact that Burst Shot and Searing Wave cannot harm it and we can see that Petrova is truly something special.


So what could be better than a creature that’s immune to almost anything?  How about the fact that Petrova gives a race of your choice (except Mecha Del Sol) +4000 power?  This is truly amazing.  With this effect your creatures, no matter how meager, will be to trample over almost anything.  Your opponent will be rendered helpless thanks to the fact that he/she cannot touch Petrova, except by attacking it.  If they do choose to attack it then they’ll need a lot of luck because your blockers will more than likely be boosted by +4000 power.  Also, if you’d like to add insult to injury then stack another Petrova and you’ll potentially boost your field by +8000 power.  Wow!


So is this card invincible?  Actually no.  There are still Ballom players and Bazagazeal spammers out there, which will be incessantly looking to get a piece of Petrova.  Make sure you’re prepared and you’ll have no problem snagging an easy victory.


The Good:  Power up a race by +4000 and watch your opponent squirm.


The Bad:  It can’t power up Mecha Del Sols. ;)


The Ugly:  N/A


Constructed Rating: 5/5 – B.R.O.K.E.N.  It’s too bad that 5/5 is the highest I can go as far as rating Petrova.  We have a virtually indestructible creature that can potentially power up a field by +4000.


Limited Rating: 5/5 – No matter what the format, there’s always a way to abuse Petrova.


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!
