DRY 1337

 

 

It’s time to look at one of the most underpowered silent skill creatures.  Kaemira, the Oracle has in fact received little attention in both the construction and limited environments.  The biggest problem is that it does not have a game-winning effect, although most players don’t realize that the effect could actually be game-saving.

 

Kaemira, the Oracle 

Cost:

Race: Light Bringer 

Civilization: Light

Type: Creature
 

Rules Text:

  • Silent skill (At the start of each of your turns, if this creature is tapped, you may keep it tapped and use its ability.)
    Add the top card of your deck to your shields face down.

     

Power: 1000

 

This is one of the worst power to mana ratios that the Light Civilization has to offer.  Let’s face it, 1000 power for 4 mana is ridiculous, especially when it comes to light.  Granted, there are some useful light cards with the same ratio like Kolon, the Oracle but it appears that Kaemira is not as rewarding.  As a matter of fact, Kolon gets to use its ability right away (shield trigger) while Kaemira is forced to sit back until its silent skill ability can kick in.  Such is the fate of all silent skill creatures… They always have to wait 2 turns before the effect can be activated.  The other issue here is that Kaemira is vulnerable to all forms of attack and nearly every removal spell.

 

Fortuntely, the best way to make up this deficit is by using cards like Pala Olesis.  Pala will add an additional 2000 power during each of your turns, making it a lot easier to keep Kaemira in the battle zone.  After all, the whole purpose for doing this is so we can benefit from its ability.  Once the silent skill ability is activated you get a free shield at the beginning of each of your turns!  This is a superb effect and definitely game-saving.  There’s nothing more frustrating than facing someone with a field of powered-up blockers and shield generation.

 

Overall this card is pretty straightforward and players will definitely enjoy the free shields.  It’s a great card for casual play.  Just make sure you protect it and then start abusing creatures like Razorpine Tree. 

 

The Good:  We all like free shields. :)

 

The Bad:  It’s a silent skill effect.

 

The Ugly:  Kaemira is vulnerable to almost anything.  Make sure it’s well guarded/boosted.

 

Constructed Rating: 3/5 – It’s another unimpressive light creature with a silent skill effect.  Unless you can protect Kaemira, you’re better off without it.  On the other hand if you build a deck around it then you’ll be seemingly invincible.  Just picture having 2 Kaemiras in the battle zone and earning 2 free shields instead.  It can really get out of han.

 

Limited Rating: 1/5 – Kaemira cannot hold its own.  Unless you’re able to pull a handful of blockers, it’s not worth it.
