We’ve been looking at the Abyss lore as new cards were released, but we never really got to the Fallen of Albaz side of things, so let’s go back and look at his side staring with the main card itself: Fallen of Albaz.
Albaz is a Level 4 DARK Dragon with 1800 ATK and 0 DEF. A good ATK stat on a Level 4, DARK is a great Attribute, and Dragon is one of the best Types in the game. The lone effect Albaz has is that you can discard a card on Normal or Special Summon, except during the Damage Step, to Fusion Summon any Fusion Monster from the Extra Deck by using this card and monsters the opponent controls as material. It’s a nice Super Poly in monster form. You are kind of limited considering you have to use Albaz himself. Starving Venom and Mudragon come to mind if you are in the right matchup. You mostly might want to go for the Fusions that require Fallen of Albaz as material, and those will all be reviewed this week. Albaz is a hard once per turn, which I guess is fine. It’s an overall cool card and you have to use it if you want to use the Albaz-based Fusions, thankfully Albaz himself is solid.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 5/5 I don’t get much Dragon vibes from this, but it’s too sick not to give a 5/5 in art.
Fallen of Abbas is a fun Monster with its own built in version of Super Polymerization. 1800 attack on a Dark/Dragon Level 4 are great things. A Normal or Special Summon of this lets you discard a card to Special Summon a Fusion from your Extra Deck. You can’t do this during the Damage Step, and you have to use this card itself in the Fusion. You’re open to your opponent’s Monsters like with Super Poly, but that’s guaranteed to go through activation. Yes the Monster itself could still be nuked with something but here, the effect can be negated initially and outright. Just something to keep in mind between the two.
Art: 5/5 Glorious; just magnificent
