Well I’m back from a nice holiday break and
ready to start the New Year with some thrilling
COTDs. Berochika, Channeler of Suns has a very
intriguing effect and packs a very serious
punch. It’s a wonder why nobody has picked up
this cool little gem and abused its sickening

When you put this creature into the battle zone,
if you have 5 or more shields, add the top card
of your deck to your shields face down.
The Light Civilization is almost always on point

opponent to shreds with its 5000 power. Your
opponent will definitely want to use Corile on
it but he’d pretty much be giving you the game.
A powerful creature with a dominating effect.
The Light Civilization already has too many
wonderful 5 mana creatures. (i.e. Petrova, and

any shields early. However, you still get the

plenty of stall so this creature will fit right
in. It’s a no-brainer. :D
