Mr. Kins, Friend or Foe?

Mr. Kins, Cryptic Familiar is a genius feline who uses magic and charm to gather intel on his enemy. Most suspect Mr. Kins for a typical housecat, but those who look in his eyes can tell their is something special about him.

A siamese cat familiar is looking over the shoulder of an old water-wizard in his study chamber. The emphasis is on the cat. The room is filled with typical water-faction based alchemists and wizard gadgets, books, and other various items. The cat has an ornate collar and its eyes are brilliant sky blue. This cat is a spy for another wizard, so he should appear to be looking more intently on what the old wizard is doing than a normal care-free cat.

Ideal plays with Mr. Kins

Mr. Kins, Cryptic Familiar is a very good unit to play in decks focused around Gillian, the Witch Queen. Mr. Kins allows you to look at the top 2 cards of your deck and rearrange them, so you are able to take full advantage of Gillian’s Exhaust ability.

This combo net you 2 new cards, puts Mr. Kins back into your hand so you can play him again, and you can Shard Drain to put another unit on top of its owner’s deck!
