||KOLON THE ORACLE
Sorry I missed out on the two previous CotDs, I was
out with a sprained elbow. Today we have a Light
Bringer card from Shadowclash, it's a shield trigger
creature with a nasty but situational effect.
Kolon the Oracle is a 1 mana higher costing Miele
(godly card) who does all the same things with the
same power. However, with Kolon's ability to be
triggered as a shield when your opponent attacks -
two things happen. The creature that attacked your
shield let you bring out a creature, and is now
tapped. And next, another card that is not yet
tapped is tapped because of Kolons attack. This
ability basically stops one creature from attacking.
This could possibly save you late game, and
eliminate major forces early on.
If your opponent is playing a game where they only
attack with one creature and just support it, you'll
find this guy is very useless, but a good haste
attacker. He also taps blockers, making him useful
in fire/light decks.
As a creature that isn't in your shields he is
struck by all the downfalls that Miele has. Weak
power, but good ability. If you don't hit this guy
as a shield, he'll probably land as mana. Not cool.
Miele had a sort of quickness compared to this guy
though, where one goes over another.
In a tap, kill, cutter mono-light deck this guy
could have his uses. Where I personally think he
really shines is limited however. Being a common you
could probably get 2-3 of these in a dark/light/?
deck then use cards like Sarius to kill them. Pull
these if you can, they are useful!
Constructed: 2.5/5.0 - I would prefer Miele, because
of the cost. If you can manipulate your shields
Limited: 4.0/5.0 - If your playing with just
Shadowclash, this guy is your light trump card. Play
Artwork: 3.5/4.0 - He stands on 2 hand things, which
freaks me out, but he looks staunch and cool.
||Kolon, the Oracle --
Shadowclash of Blinding Night
This guy is a ST Meile that costs one more mana. If
you get him as a ST then he can help stop your
opponent from killing you. Hard casting this guy is
a little harder than it should be, but the ST
ability makes up for it. When you put this guy into
play you can tap a blocker, to help your other
creatures break sheilds, or attack creatures. You
can tap a creature with Kolon, and then attack the
tapped creature to destroy it. I wouldn't recommend
Kolon in a Mono-Light deck. You've already got
enough tapping with Screaming Sunburst, and Holy
Awe. However in a two or three civ deck Kolon is
pretty good. I think he works best in Mono-Nature
since Mana Nexus can put him into the sheild zone,
and Nature's mana gain can make his cost easier to
