DRY 1337



Today we take a look at a creature that sees very little action.  Lemik, Vizier of Thought is pretty exciting and allows your water and nature creatures to adopt the blocker effect.  With a creature this exquisite, it’s amazing that duelists haven’t given it a chance.  Let’s take a look.


Lemik, Vizier of Thought


Cost: 5


Race: Initiate


Civilization: Light


Type: Creature


Rules Text:

  • Each of your water creatures and nature creatures in the battle zone has "blocker." (Whenever one of your opponent's creatures attacks, you may tap a creature that has "blocker" to stop the attack. Then the 2 creatures battle.)


Power: 3000


Obviously when we pay 5 mana we get a creature with 3000 power.  This is very uncommon for the Light Civilization because light creatures typically come with a lot more power.  We also need to understand that this creature has the same cost as Mist Rias and Petrova, which is why it’s so difficult to find enough room for it in a typical deck.


On top of that, the effect is only half-good.  The reason I say this is because the Water Civilization already has good blockers and most creatures (except for Aqua Soldier) would be worthless as blockers.  So basically, this creature would be mostly helpful with the Nature Civilization.  We all know that nature has a weak defense but in turn we get some powerful creatures.  Lemik helps to fill the void.  Interestingly enough, nature duelists now have a new way to defend themselves.


Aside from these benefits, Lemik doesn’t appear to be overwhelmingly helpful.  At 5 mana, it enters the battle zone a little late and by that time you could have had effectual blockers in the battle zone to stop the little guys.  On top of that, all it takes is one simple removal effect and your blocker tactic gets blown away.


The Good:  Nature decks finally have a way to defend themselves.


The Bad:  Once Lemik gets removed from the battle zone, you’ll be left wide open.


The Ugly:  Scarlet Skyterror and Crystal Paladin will pretty much shred through your strategy.


Constructed Rating: 2.5/5 – It’s not the greatest card but it’s also not too bad.  There are better creatures to play on turn 5, while summoning early blockers instead.


Limited Rating: 3/5 – Lemik is a little more useful in Limited because blockers are so hard to acquire.  This is certainly an effective tool if you’re able to get it out.

Tom Rogers Lemik, Vizier of Thought

I used three copies of Lemik, Vizier of Thought
at the shockwaves of the shattered rainbow release event. Its
a very good card! Being able to add an ability onto creautres and make
them more flexible gives you a plethora of options.
Water creatures can be unblockable yet be able to block which is
pretty cool, and nature creatures are typically beefy so making
them blockers can't hurt you at all unless your opponet
is playing scarlet skyterror! The Vizier of Thought, if you aren't following
the game's name patterns, is also an initiate which means it has two
evolution creatures. I'd rate Lemik, Vizier of Thought a seven out of ten,
since the only thing that makes me a bit iffy when looking at it is that it
is a 5 mana, 3000 power creature without a raw advantage engine.
