DRY 1337



Like most of the Light Civilization silent skill creatures, Flohdani, the Spyroid  has received very little attention.  There must be a problem with the fact that these light creatures display uninspiring and passive effects.  Fortunately, all is not lost with Flohdani, the Spyroid.  Even though it doesn’t directly damage the opponent, there is still some combo potential.


Flohdani, the Spyroid


Cost: 4


Race: Soltrooper


Civilization: Light

Type: Creature

Rules Text:

  • Silent skill (At the start of each of your turns, if this creature is tapped, you may keep it tapped and use its ability.)
    Choose up to 2 of your opponent's creatures in the battle zone and tap them


Power: 4000


As usual with the Light Civilization, the power to mana ratio is on-point.  4000 power for 4 mana is certainly acceptable, especially with silent skill creatures.  The nice thing about having 4000 power is the fact that it can hold its own in the battle zone.  In addition, Flohdani is able to evade some of the Fire Civilization’s destruction spells.  In other words, Flohdani has a good chance of being able to stay out in the battle zone for a good amount of time, allowing you to continue reusing its effect.


Surprisingly, the ability is quite good.  As long as Flohdani, the Spyroid is tapped you will be able to tap two of your opponent’s creatures in the battle zone at the beginning of your turn.  The reason why this effect is so good is because the Light Civilization is stocked with high-powered blockers.  You’ll be able to wipe out your opponent’s offence without breaking a sweat.  I also can’t help but consider the possibilities when combining this effect with the Fire Civilization.  For one thing Heavyweight Dragon would serve a greater purpose.  You can also cripple your opponent by combining this effect with Cutthroat Skyterror.  Just tap, summon, and then kill.  The light civilization doesn’t have much to offer in the form of silent skill abilities (most of them are passive) but Flohdani’s effect is definitely something worth considering.


The Good:  Another method of field control for the Light Civilization.


The Bad:  It’s a silent skill effect.


The Ugly:  Control and rush decks will make this card useless.


Constructed Rating: 3.5/5 – Flohdani almost deserves a 4 but the silent skill ability holds it back.  However there is a tremendous potential when combining this effect with the Fire Civilization.


Limited Rating: 4/5 – There’s nothing wrong with a little muscle in limited.  You’ll be able to attack relentlessly or tap those pesky blockers for the win.
