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
Lemik, Vizier of Thought
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
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.
Nature decks finally have a way to defend
Once Lemik gets removed from the battle zone,
you’ll be left wide open.
Scarlet Skyterror and Crystal Paladin will
pretty much shred through your strategy.
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
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.
