Out Of Time

Posted by Ballom , Jun 23 2008 · 77 views

Duelmasters
Well, forget what I said yesterday about doing both the PotW and the DCotW. I ran out of time, although it wasn't quite caused by the wierd and unusual powers of the Duelmaster creature that I will review today. But at least I'm definately doing it right now.

So yeah, here it is, once again, starring:

Mihail, Celestial Elemental!


Aside from Aeris, Mihail is the lowest of the Angel Commands on the rarity ladder, but she offers a pretty good power that is the only one of its kind. Its high Mana cost aside, once Mihail is in play no more creatures can be destroyed. This can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, whenever you try to destroy an opponent's creature by attacking it, the attack fails and both creatures become tapped because they've been used. On the other hand, your Blockers and own creatures cannot be taken out themselves. Once Mihail is down, this effect can only be stopped by destroying her, but with invincible Blockers surrounding it, this can rarely be done except perhaps by a destroying spell or a slayer.

Hence, a good Blocking Light deck is recommended to put her in. Theoretically, (since I don't own this card, unlike many of the DCoTWs) the best method is to attack your opponent's Blockers with some of your smaller creatures or Blockers who can attack creatures, in order for them to become tapped. Then, once this protective barrier is down, just hammer your opponen't shields until they are down, and attack for victory. Of course, this could prove slightly risky if you have less attackers than the opponent has Blockers, in which case they can use Mihail's strategy against you to win, just like shooting yourself in the foot.

Ballom's Rating: 2.5/5. While her ability can be a good end-game if correctly done, Mihail can also give your opponent the same opportunity as well.

If I May Quote Myself

In blog entry "An Analogy -- Life is like a Rubik's Cube: sometimes you need to screw everything up to get it all right."
Or everyone. Posted Image

In response to Seran's WIP image of his Boxor MOC
Although this may be a completely wild guess, I do believe that is a picture.

In blog entry "Dlakii"
Oh my. I didn't know that they made metal sporks.

In "Is there ever a time when you can't post?"
No, since I can always to to GD and post a couple hundred times. XD

In response to "I've forgotten how to blog"
Click "Add entry". Then enter a moronic title. Then click on the text section, mash your keyboard with your fists for as long as you wish, and post it. Congratulations, you now can blog better than the majority of BZP.

In response to "How often do you accidentally post in the wrong topic?
Never. I have these magical devices called eyes and this thing called a brain which prevent that. They're quite handy.

In "The weakest element"
Xenon, or perhaps Radon and Argon. Really, a Toa of Noble Gas can't control much at all, due to how few things they bond with. Xenon hexafluoride is all that immediately comes to mind, in fact.

In "Hardest thing to MOC"
Fluffy pink tutus. Mainly because of the slight handicap of pink Bionicle pieces not existing.

In "Talking to staff members"
Talking to staff members? Well, I'm generally okay with it as long as I have my pepper spray nearby.

In "Mask powers"
Hurr durr.

In "What did you do during the downtime"
I sat in a shadowy corner in a fetal position for five days, rocking back and forth in a crazed manner.

In "How do you imagine yourself on BZP?"
I am a Nidoking, obviously. How these stubby little claws are capable of typing on a keyboard I'll never know. :P

In blog entry "Bascula"
Hooray, I'm a geek.
