Stallob, an awesome demon command

Even though Stallob is extremely expensive to call, it serves as a good demon command to be evolved in to Ballom, Master of Death. And if your opponent tries to destroy him with Death Smoke, Acopaclypse Vise, and Terror Pit he risks destroying his own creature. Another good thing about Stallob has a good base power that exceeds fire spells like tornado flame. Though he can be taken by volcanic arrows for a shield. And he's a double breaker.

Well, the key to using this card is to keep deck that is filled with creatures that are cheap and don't have much power. Like this, Your opponent destroys his powerful creatures, while you don't.
Or you can combine it with nature for a mana boost. Bronze Arm Tribe is an excellent choice. You may want to keep Elf-X.

It is an awesome combination with Jack Viper, Shadow of Doom.
Evolution-Put on one of your Ghosts.
Whenever another of your darkness creatures would be put into your graveyard from the battle zone, you may return it to your hand instead.

Your opponent won't have a Jack Viper so you basically return all your cards including Jack Viper, Shadow of Doom.

A good way to counteract this card is Mihail, Celestial Elemental.
Whenever another creature would be destroyed, it stays in the battle zone instead.

Collector Number: 12
Rarity: Rare
Type: Creature
Race: Angel Command
Power: 4000
Mana Number: 1
Cost: 8
Civilization: Light
Artist: D-Suzuki

Basically this cards serves as a good way to evolve your Ballom.
Next, it serves as a good way to equalize your opponent's mass army (if he has 2 or 3 mana creatures.)
Overall it is a awesome card.

The main weakness in this card is the ability to destroy all of your creatures as well.
Next, Mihail, Celestial Elemental can easily counteract this card, but then he serves as a double breaker that cannot be destroyed.

This card is currently available in only and only english. There are no alternate artwork of this card. This is not yet a promotional card, but is available in foil. In fact I own a foil Stallob and Jack Viper that are available for trade though I don't think I have listed it yet.
And the set you will find him in is Fatal Brood of Infinite Ruin.

ARTWORK

I think it is the artwork that gives the card its look and seriously Ittoku did a AWESOME job.


Overall, I give it a splendid 9 out of 10.

The Stallob+Eldritch Poison+Speed Attacker combo is nice.

i like the fact that in the favor text he mentions that he was the master of death. it's interesting to note that some cards like stratosphere giant's favor text said that he stopped ballom's reign of terror with his foot, and now ballom returns as stallob from the grave. take all of the favor text of specific cards and you can turn it into a great story about the wars between the civilizations
