Constructed Average Rating:
Limited Average Rating: 2
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.
Card Type: Spell
. Whenever this creature attacks, you may look at
one of your opponent's
shields. Then put it back where it was.
Civilization: Light also holds a small collection of
cards that "shield
gaze" but the glory of the Light Civilization still
holds within their draw
power, blockers, shield triggers, and tap ability.
Oracles hold no evolution
creatures and will see most play in Limited Format
events. Power wise they
only hit the 2500 mark and all fall victim to
Searing Wave or Vampire
Cost/Power: 2 mana for 1500 power isn't too bad
given the ability to shield
gaze whenever Wyn, the Oracle attacks. This can help
avoid shield triggers
that could hurt you early/mid game (Burst Shot in
rush decks or Ghost
Touch/Locomotiver when your hand is low in cards.
Abilities: Whenever Wyn, the Oracle attacks you get
a change to look at one
of your opponent's shields. This can be used to find
out what your opponent
swapped with Emeral's effect or placed from the
effect of Sundrop Armor.
Another benefit to this is you can attack shield #1
and look at shield #2 to deside if you should attack
it or not.I'm sure a few people wouldn't mind
sacrifising Wyn, the Oracle to find out if that last
shield is a Holy Awe or not.
Card Efficiency: Wyn, the Oracle will only suprass
standard efficiency if it can get successfully get
an attack and effect off without being destroyed by
Constructed: There are just better options to use in
a format plagued with
Searing Waves and Volcano Chargers. .5/5
Limited: At least in Limited Format Wyn, the Oracle
can help to avoid giving your opponent powerful
creatures to use against you. One of many standard
low cost creatures abused in Limited. 1/5
Hi Everyone, I'm Anh Do and this is my first
post for COTD. I've been playing since the
beginning of duel masters so I hope my comments
are useful and wish everyone good luck with
their awesome duels. And if anyone needs help
with the game just give me a howler (only if
your tired of waiting for the deck doctor to
pick your deck, although I attend UCI I have the
time so chill =)
Too begin I'm going to review a rather unique
and many times discarded card that almost
never enters the battle zone.
Name: Wyn, the Oracle Cost: 2 Race: Light Bringer Civilization: Light Type: Creature Rules Text:
Whenever this creature attacks, you may look at
one of your opponent's shields. Then put it back
where it was. Flavor Text: As the oracles disappeared one by one, they
each proclaimed the dawn of a new era. Power: 1500 Mana Number: 1 Artist: Kou1 Rarity: U Collector Number: 11 Set: Evo Crushinators of Doom
Light civilization has a problem in which their
monsters never round their attack power to the
next level. Oh well, Two mana for 1500 sets this
creature in a bid if your opponent plays any
blocker, and since this creature power is too
low it could only destroy blockers like marrow
ooze the twister or weak nature/ fire monsters.
However, Wyn's ability creates an exception to
this rule and I'll discuss that later. It’s a
terrible shame but this light creature has one
other flaws. It is a major target for fire
spells such as searing wave and volcano charger;
although if you happen to be quick enough and
your opponent doesn't spring a bloody squito on
you then you might be able to break a shield
before getting Wyn destroyed in the process.
Again Wyn gets no
love. No evolutions for light bringers leaves
Wyn hoping for a quick smash and steal with your
opponents shield, and with out proper support
this creature is doomed to a quick life with a
100% chance that it will disappear one by one.
Now things get
interesting. Wyn happens to peak at you
opponents shield when it attacks and for a
measly two mana it is an amazingly cheap
creature. Good so far, but in a mono light deck
with no support this creature is doomed.
However, help does arrive with the light
civilization cards such as laser wing and sonic
wind can back up Wyn allows him safe passage to
attack a shield and continue to use its tricky
ability. Also when teaming up with a
water creature like Sopian and its amazing tap
ability will allow Wyn to bypass blockers
straight to you opponents shields and continue
the onslaught. Looking at your opponents shields
can give you the heads up to take out
potentially hazardous shield with a Bolmetious
and leave regular shields to your cryptic totem,
and if you use cards that make Wyn unblockable
you will not only have a leg up on your opponent
but also valuable information that could
potentially tip the game in you balance. Because
knowing exactly what shields to knock out can
help you should you manage to cast invincible
cataclysm which could potentially send 3 shields
triggers straight to the grave yard with a
little help from Wyn. (assuming you scrapped up
10 mana, a task I have never done =(
There’s no reason
to pass up Wyn in the draft format. He is a
low cost and surprisingly reasonable because
you get an cheap creature, possibly with insight
into a safe attack or a pit fall that
could potentially break it for you, and in
return maybe someday he will get help in the
form of maybe a powerful evolution. And I'm only
stating this because a light bringer is like a
cyber lord in its limited power and strong
sturdy abilities, and since the cyber lords have
an evo its only fair that light bringers with
their vast numbers of creature (possibly
almost 9 different types of light bringers so
far) who knows when an evo might come out for
it. But till then stay away because
you won't have
any cards that can allow you to negate the
hazardous shields but rather delays the
One word comes to mind ... No way. This card has
perks; however, in a constructed deck with no
evo backup and creature/ spells that could
potentially obliterate it from existence I would
stay way from this one for now.
Race: Light Bringer
- Whenever this creature attacks, you may look at
one of your opponent's sheilds. Then put it back
where it was.
Flavor: As the oracles disappeared one by one, they
each proclaimed the dawn of a new era.
Well this is my first review and what do you know!!!
One of my favorite Civs. Card is being reviewed
today!! It's Alcadi.......oh wait, no it's "Wyn the
Ora.....why do I try?"
Well as everyone knows, Light is about tapping,
sheilds, some drawing power, and blocking. Light is
also known for having it's fair share of good cards,
this is not one of them.
Cost/Power: This card gets 1500 for 2 mana, which
puts it 500 below 2000 and 500 above 1000...but did
I really need to tell you that? Well it can beat up
up on all the weak 1000 creatures without killing
itself, but still being at 1500 makes him vurneable
to all the kill spells out there at the present
moment. Frankly there are better Light cards out
there at the same cost and at the same power.
Race: Light Bringers have no evolutions and no
support, so I don't feel any real need why one must
have them in their deck. Better cards out there
folks, just keep on moving.
Effect: "This must be where the card gets good!!"
You must be saying to yourself. Well it's creepy to
talk to yourself so please stop. When you attack
with Wyn you can look at one of your opponent's
sheilds. So if you use this card you can see if your
going to hit a Terror Pit sometime soon. Sheild
peeking isn't really popular and even if you use it,
all you'll be able to do is look. No touching. You
can avoid attacking that sheild, but sooner or later
your going to have to attack it, and it's going to
suck if it's a sheild trigger. What's more worse
than seeing a Terror Pit lying in wake while you
know you can't do anything about it?
Of course, if you have a Bazagazeal dragon then this
could help. But then again if you have a Bazagazeal
out then why are worried about Sheild triggers?
Snooooorrrreeeeee, boring card, boring power, boring
effect, does I really need to say anymore?
Such a pitiful card for my very first review....why
can't they make a Ferret type card....

Wyn, the Oracle
Race: Light Bringer
Ability: When this creature attacks, you may look at
one of your opponent's shields. Then put it back
where it was.
Flavor Text: as the oracles disappeared one by one,
they each proclaimed the dawn of a new era.
A cost of 2 makes this guy a pretty cheap drop as
far as attackers go. Wyn's ability can help you from
hitting early shield triggers that can stop your
Light bringers have no good evolutions at this point
and none at all that I can think of for that matter.
The real deal breaker for me on this card is the
very low power. A power of 1500 will not get him
past any good blocker and he is easily taken down by
your opponents attackers. Wyn dies to all removal
commonly played as well. I would rather play one of
light's 2000 attackers for 2 that have no ability
and at least make my opponent trade with my guy to
to take him out.
Wyn's downfall like all the other cheap light
creatures is that light is far more defensive and
has more to support your blockers than attackers.
Wyn has no come into play ability that can generate
card advantage. The ability Wyn has does not help it
survive in combat unlike most cheap fire creatures
who have decent to excellent combat abilities.
My opinion of speedy light decks will remain the
same until the release of the tenth set for DM. That
set has the 1 cost 500 power light creature with no
drawback. That paves the way for a great light/fire
rush deck type. Then maybe I will give Wyn a second
Constructed: I give Wyn a 1.5/5. I just don't see it
going into a competitive deck and being effectively
used as anything but mana.
Limited: I give Wyn a 3/5. Due to the limited number
of blockers in in any limited format Wyn's cheap
cost could give you a couple of free shots at your
opponent before they can get rid of it.
Art/Flavor text:I give Wyn a 4/5. I like the art
quite a bit and the quote is fairly good as well.
