General description:
Hm... Petrova, Channeler Of Suns. I love it : D It's my favorite DM card, and decided to make a review for it because of that. It has cool abilities : D
Uses:
Not so good as a shield breaker, but very useful if you have much creatures from a same race. You can choose a race and that race gets +4000 power. Nice. Sadly, you can't choose Mecha Del Sol.

Strategies and game play:
Well, strategies... Read the combos, that might be useful.

Combos with other cards:
One card can make this creature very good; Alcadeias, Lord Of Spirits. When Alcadeias is put your battle zone, no one (not you, not your opponent) can't cast any other spells than light spells. Petrova can't be even the creature your opponent chooses for something, so when your opponent can only use light spells and this creature can't be chosen; it's almost unbeatable. It can be destroyed only by attacking or blocking.

Ways to counteract it:
This creature doesn't have very much power, so it's easy to destroy. Only problem is; you can't destroy it with a spell. It needs to be destroyed by attacking it or blocking it. But only 3500 power, it's not hard. Really.

Strengths/Pros:
-Gives +4000 power for a race (sadly, Mecha Del Sol can't be chosen)
-Can't be the creature your opponent chooses fro something

Weaknesses/Cons:
Well, I would say it has too less power to be a good creature. It just leaves good creatures to battle zone : D

Variations:
It's super rare, so of course it has a foil.

Artwork and aesthetics:
It has 2 artworks; I like both. Petrova is just so cool...

Overall rating:
9/10. Simply, very cool creature : D

Mi hail is useful because if mi hail and petr ova in the battle zone then mi hail's power rises and it would be tough to destroyed and petr ova is un destroyable because of mi hail. so it creates a great combo.

Yes, but mihail makes your opponent's creatures immortal so there's no point of "powering up" then.

There's a mistake here. You said it can't be killed with a spell, but it can. Blizzard of spears can kill it. If it's the only creature in the battlezone, proclamation of death can kill it.

It's your favorite DM card, so why don't you add which race you like to use it with? Guardian? Initiate? Beast/Tree folk?

A friend of mine cast tornado flame yesterday and i had petrova and two starlight trees who got +4000 as per petrova's ability. Now what my freind said is Tornado flame says Destroy one of your opponent's creatures that has power 4000 or less.
according to him, since petrova is the only creature below 4000 (the other two were 7000 and 8000 respectively) there is no question of choosing petrova in that sense. hence it can be destroyed.

he did it again in another duel using Slaphappy's turborush ability.

I need to get this problem sorted.

P.S he lost both duels

Oh don't worry, Tornado flame can't kill Petrova. Though Tornado has no wording on 'targetting' mechanism, it is understood that it does so cause one needs to specify what it should destroy. In your case the spell won't work and your opponent wasted his turn. Tell your friend that.
