General description:
Expensive mana, so I'd suggest having quite a few blockers in your deck to get up to 8 mana.

Uses:
I would use this card only if I had a full dark deck. It's too much of a risk with a mixed element deck.

Strategies and game play:
Mixed deck: save him for the end
Dark deck: Have blockers in your deck so that you get up to 8 mana without much trouble.

Ways to counteract it:
Many dark spells make you destroy creatures. If you're going up against a dark deck, use caution. The moment you summon him he could be gone. If not, counteract him using blockers which you may have to sacrifice. Try to "Slay" him if possible.

Strengths/Pros:

Powerful. Too much hassle just to summon a double breaker, but he has 12000 power. He can get rid of virtually all blockers in the opponents deck unless he comes across a Slayer.

Weaknesses/Cons:

Destroys other creatures except dark, but just gives double-breaker. He should be triple breaker because there are quite a few 5 mana dark creatures with double breaker which are a lot less hassle to summon.

Variations:
English, Japanese.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork is nice.

Overall rating:
6/10.
