The Pit of
Double breaker (This creature breaks 2 shields.)
While this creature is tapped during your opponent's
turn, if it hasn't been attacked that turn, your
opponent's creatures must attack it if able.
"Knocked a mountain over once. Really hurt my toe."
I'm back to review this big 12000 powered fattie.
8 mana. Not good. This cards cost to power ratio is
This card has a nice effect it's good to take down
your opponents field but you have to wait one turn
to actually make this work. So this card can be...
Bazd, Pited,Coriled, Smoked, Vortexed etc etc.
Nice effect wit a big body.
Destroys your opponents field.
Has to wait one turn to actually make it work.
A bit too costly.
Constructed: Nice effect but not very good though
you can build a deck around this. 2/5 (tourney play)
Limited: Don't play it! Too high costing.1/5
Giant (Shockwaves of the Shattered Rainbow – DM10)
When I first saw this card, I was dumfounded. I had
to read it a few times, because the new mechanic is
fairly unique. At first, I read it as “when it is
tapped, all the opponent’s creatures gain “this
creature must attack if able.” I realized that might
REALLY hurt a nature deck (what with the lack of
blocker support) so I traveled onto the FAQ section
again for clarification. The official Duel Masters
FAQ’s went as follows:
Q: How does this [card] work?
A: Let's say your Bodacious Giant is tapped during
your opponent's turn. If your opponent has any
creatures in the battle zone that can attack
creatures, one of them must attack Bodacious Giant.
Until one of them does, your opponent's creatures
can't attack anything else and he can't end his
turn. After one creature has attacked Bodacious
Giant, Bodacious Giant's ability is over for that
turn. The rest of your opponent's creatures can then
attack whatever he wants, or he can end his turn.
Now it all makes sense. If this creature attacked
(or somehow otherwise got tapped) and it was tapped,
one of the creatures on your opponent’s side MUST
attack the Bodacious one before ending the turn or
going after shields or other tapped creatures. With
a power of 12,000, there are not many creatures that
can live after the attacking this HUGE beatstick.
This will force your opponent to, essentially,
destroy one creature per turn while he is tapped.
Wow…now that is nature destruction at it’s finest.
Just picture a swarmer who is just waiting to gain
enough creatures to take out all your shields at
once. Bodacious come out to play, and one by one,
the little pests visit the other world…pretty nice.
My only two problems with this card are the costs
and the fact that he is a giant (what with only 9
other available giants, none of which evolve). I
like to have options, and all the giants are pretty
costly (the cheapest giants are 5 cost). This would
be difficult (not impossible) to base a deck on
giants now, but he is one of the better giant
1) Puts on a target when tapped (come on…you knoooww
you want to fight me little ones…)
2) Costly, but as a nature card, mana is rarely in
3) Double breaker (‘nough said…)
4) HUGE POWER LEVEL (That whole 8 cost, 12,000 power
1) Pretty costly creature with double breaker and a
“kick me” sign for a single attacking creature.
2) Lack of evo choices, and lack of focus on the
race (not really that big of a deal...what could you
evolve a giant into, a “Really Giant Giant?”)
Overall, he gets a 4 out of 5 for any nature
concentrated deck. The thing I love the most is that
this creature is that just because you might stop
his attack, it doesn’t mean his usefulness ends. He
might want to see the mana zone against a darkness
opponent (”sure, I’ll fight with my puny 1,000
power, I am a slayer after all!”). He is a good
muscle addition later in the duel, and will slowly
sap the opponent of weaker creatures (and by
“weaker” I mean less then 12,000 power…shesh…).
