King Baz Hello Pojo people! My name is King Baz, and I come from a country known as New Zealand. Same as The Pit of Terror. But enough about me, lets get on to our COTD. Today, we review a very interesting card. King Oquanos...

Name: King Oquanos
Cost: 8
Race: Leviathan
Civilization: Water
Type: Creature

Rules Text:
This creature gets +2000 power for each tapped card in your opponent's mana zone.
While this creature has power 6000 or more, it has "Double breaker (This creature breaks 2 shields)."

Flavor Text:
The Merfolk fear, despise, and respect the Leviathans.

Power: 2,000


Well, this card is very annoying to the opponent. It's a bit like Smash Horn Q. The power lies to you...

It's an 8 Cost 2000.... or is it? What do I mean you ask? See the effect and you will understand...

King Oquanos gets +2000 power for each tapped card in your opponents mana zone. That means when you Hammer it, it has 6000. When you PDF it, it has 8000. In fact, there are only a few ways that a Fire spell can kill this. A Volcanic Arrows or a Sheild Triggered PDF. Tricky card. It also gets Double Breaker when it has 6000 or more. Double Breaker is good to have.

Hmm..... There's not much to this card. It's a weenie that grows to a fattie and back to a weenie...

Time to rate!

Constructed: 2.5

Limited: 2

Till' next time!

Heya all, ~Zephyr~ here once again with another COTD for you's to enjoy.
Next up on our list of Very Rares from Set 10, is a very odd looking Leviathan in King Oquanos

Name: King Oquanos
Cost: 8
Race: Leviathan
Civilization: Water
Type: Creature
Rules Text:
This creature gets +2000 power for each tapped card in your opponent's mana zone.
While this creature has power 6000 or more, it has "Double breaker (This creature breaks 2 shields)."
Flavor Text:
The Merfolk fear, despise, and respect the Leviathans.
Power: 2,000
Mana Number: 1
Artist: Masaki Hirooka
Rarity: V
Collector Number: 3


Lets break it down.......

Cost, Power & Effect: Similar to Ryudmila, this creature has a very low power at only 2000 but unlike Ryudmila being only 5 mana, this guy, like most of the Leviathan's, is a massive 8 mana, a spot which is usually keep open for the likes of Bazagazeal Dragon or the rare use of Chain Sacrifice!
8 mana for 2000 power is very poor but again, this creature's effect is linked to its power but in a very different way to Ryudmila! For you see, this creature gains +2000 power for every TAPPED creature in the OPPONENT's Mana Zone, and even better is that once it reaches 6000 power, it gains a nice double breaker ability. The main thing that must been said about this creature's effect is that it relies entirely on how your opponent is playing their deck. 99% of the time, duelists will put creatures into their mana zone, allowing you to use Oquanos' ability to its max. But if the particular duelist is either using a very high spell deck (they do exist, played one recently against Cloud) or even rarier appearance of an Earthstomp Giant deck, then u are in trouble, but I wouldn't worry as most duelists won't do that! The only bad thing that I dislike about this's creature effect is that it gives your opponent and not you the oppurtunity to decide its power and if your opponent is clever, they will avoid raising its power too high that it will be impossible to block!

Race: Leviathans have been around since the Base Set with King Depthcon and like always this guy fits in with the rest quite nicely. Has a nice evolution in King Bynor but otherwise, its nothing new.

Availability: Tough but easily for trade!

I like this creature personally and I could see it being a major problem for the majority of decks to deal with unless they have plenty of removal as people will not realise that their creatures in their mana zone of all places will end up deciding how strong King Oquanos becomes! Its like a double-edged sword as such, they tap their mana to summon or cast, but at the same time, they are possibly powering King Oquanos up for cause some damage against them the next turn, nice!

Limited: 2/5 - The effect is this creature is pretty good for matches but since its 8 mana, you'll be very lucky to get a chance to summon it personally, so I'd be careful if you decide to use it!

Constructed: 3/5 - Other than the high mana cost & the way your opponent can decide King Oquanos' power boost, this creature is a solid double breaker but there are definitely better choices to use over it!

~Zephyr~'s Score: 3/5

If anyone wants to discuss anything that I have mentioned in this COTD, feel free to email me @ - mexflash@hotmail.com. Generally always up for a friendly chat & discussion. Also available on Msn & for duels on DMC v2.0!

Until the next COTD!

What is on his head, a boiler-like thing?

King Oquanos is a Leviathan from Shockwaves Of The Shattered Rainbow. He is a Leviathan, so he's evo-bait for Bynor. His Mant to Power ratio, much like Ryudmila, is based on his effect. So for every tapped card in your opponents mana zone, he gets +2000 power. Once again, if the rules text read "for every tapped card in both players mana zone..." than this creature would see play in most decks. Sadly it doesn't so your opponent can spend 5 mana on his turn, while this creature is on the field, to summon a powerful monster. On his/her next turn, your opponent can use that beast to obliterate the King Oquanos.

Pros: Evo-bait for Bynor

Cons: HORRIBLE Power to Mana ratio.

Only evolution creature for leviathans is Bynor

Art: 1/5 Next cards art is going to be better

Overall Rating: 1/5 Next cards is going to be better

See ya guys, or girls, next time
 

Oversoul

 

I'm back again for another CotD. Today we look at King Oqanos.

(I'm going to start getting my data from duelmasters.com's database.)

Name: King Oquanos
Cost: 8
Race: Leviathan
Civilization: Water
Type: Creature
Rules Text:
This creature gets +2000 power for each tapped card in your opponent's mana zone.
While this creature has power 6000 or more, it has "Double breaker (This creature breaks 2 shields)."
Flavor Text:

Power: 2,000
Mana Number: 1
Artist: Masaki Hirooka
Rarity: V
Collector Number: 3

I never liked Leviathans because of their cost and some pretty pathetic effects. This is a card similar to Ryudmila, but it gets it's power from your opponents tapped mana. I prefer Ryudmila over this because A. Ryudmila is cheaper for a better effect and B. Ryudmila has the offchance of being drawn again.

2/5 (still a slightly good card.)

1/5 Art (This is a leviathan? It's a big ball.)
