go away. I don’t care about power attacker…

Let me just say that
I hate Alcadieas, because I can never spell his
name right. Why couldn’t he just be B0b, Lord
of Spirits, or Johnny, Lord of Spirits?
Probably to makes Lee’s life miserable… I’m
just going to call him B0b for today, alrighty?
Now, on to the review, yes?
He’s Light. He’s an Angel Command. Angel
Commands are very strong, have some support, and
can evolve into a bad-*** evolution… Oh… Right.
Alcadieas IS the evolution.
Mana is about standard for a really good
evolution. Unfortunately, you have to figure in
the cost of the Angel Command B0b evolves from,
so it will be 11 Mana at the CHEAPEST (evolve
from Aeris)(No, I’m not counting Elf-X or the
like). Still, this guy can be worth each of
them, and you don’t necessarily have to pay all
eleven in one lump sum.
He’s an evolution, which has to evolve from an
Angel Command. I already covered the cons to
that under cost. He also can benefit from
Supporting Tulip, King Aquakamui, and Rimuel.
Being an evolution, he has no summoning
Sickness. Combined with his other abilities…
That is 1337.
He is a double
breaker, which guarantees he will swing when
he’s first summoned to whack a two shields
(unless he is blocked, or you decide not to for
some weird reason).
Finally, this is the
ability that makes B0b playable. Only light
Spells can be cast by either player. Meaning…
All shield trigger spells except Holy Awe will
not be able to trigger, cards like Death Smoke
and friends can’t be used, and there is no way
to destroy B0b with a spell. This ability
targets you as well, don’t forget, but you
shouldn’t find this to be a problem anyway.
is unrivaled by any card in the CURRENT English
game (aside from a pumped Bolshack). This guy
defines power, and he is in a league of his own
Ok, now that I’ve
reviewed these stats, let’s see how they stack
overview: If you build a deck around this
guy, he is awesome. If you just throw him in a
deck, expect to see him warming the bench in the
mana zone. That being said, if this guy hits
the field, there is a really good chance your
opponent will lose. About 1/3 of their deck,
their spells, will become useless. Since B0b
has such high attack stats, he won’t lose a
battle, except under rare conditions. He cannot
be destroyed by a spell. The best way to kill
Alcadias? Chaos Worm. Corile, Ballom, Rothus,
Wailing Shadow Belbethingy, and Swamp worm work
well too, but Chaos Worm is THE surefire
method. This guy is hard to kill, so there’s a
good bet he won’t die.
He’s difficult to
summon, but the best way to kill him is to
destroy his evo bait. That is the best solution
running. If he hits the field… duck for cover.
Out of five, I’d
rank him 4/5.
Sure, he’s big enough, but he won’t hit the
field often. Since he’s an evo, you have to
draft another angel command to even attempt
using him. What does SoBN offer? Rimuel, which
is yet another (over-costed) foil, so good luck
getting him, and Aeris, who will show up in
packs from time to time. Still, you’ll want
more than one lower level Angel Command. This
guy is awesome here if you can summon him, but
it just won’t happen nearly often enough to
warrant using him. Draft him for his rarity, or
don’t draft him at all. 1.5/5
