Legendary Bynor

Type: Creature

Civilization: Water

Race: Leviathan

Mana Cost: Six (6)

Rules Text:

  • Evolution — Put on one of your Leviathans.

  • Your other Water creatures in the battle zone can not be blocked.

  • Double breaker (This creature breaks two shields.)

Flavor Text:

"I can see my ocean from here."

Power: 8,000

Rarity: Very Rare

Set: Rampage of the Super Warriors

 

Power/Cost: Six mana to 8k attack is standard fare among evolution creatures. Bynor comes with the Double breaker ability tacked on, and he can survive all power-limited destruction except Vise. So far Bynor sure looks like his field presence is deserving of that Legendary tag.

 

Civilization/Race: This category is where the love fest comes to an end. Being an evolution, Bynor receives beefed up stats but he is also extremely dependant on the other creatures of his race. In this case, the Leviathans of Duel Masters are more a liability than an asset. There are currently eleven of the behemoths, each of them costing about seven or eight. The exception is King Coral (who?) at three mana. Now that could be okay if they were at least decent cards, but the Leviathans are terrible on top of costing way too much. Not good for Bynor.

 

Effects: Legendary Bynor’s main ability deals with unblockability, much like favorites Crystal Paladin and Lancer. But the big boy only allows all of your other Water beasts to bypass blockers. That sounds okay on the surface, but honestly it’s just too situational for my liking. Six mana could be spent in so many better ways.

 

Limited: 1.46/5

Evolutions in general should probably be avoided in drafts. Throw in the craptastic-ness of Legendary Bynor, and even the most inexperienced player would know better than to use him.

 

Constructed: 1.47/5

Bynor is naturally much better in constructed play. Its cuz all the chicks dig his sweet nunchuck skills.
