For the second card of the week, and the second Qliphort card in a row we have Qliphort Stealth, who, quite frankly reminds me of Wonder Woman's invisible jet. Anywho...
One thing that I find odd about the Qliphort monsters is that all of their one-tribute monsters have 2400/1000 attack/defense, and their two tribute monsters have 2800/1000 defense. Anyways, like all other Qliphorts, this thing has either a pendulum Scale of 1 or 9, in this case 1. It has the same Qliphort clause as the rest, in that you can only special summon Qliphort monsters, and like Helix, Shell, etc. has an attack changing effect, and your Qliphorts all gain 300 attack while this guy is up. 
Like the other non-normal Qliphort Pendulums, you can normal summon this guy without tributes, but his attack goes down to 1800 and his level goes down to four. Also like the other Qliphorts(I swear Konami is just copy-pasting), when he is Normal Summoned, he is unaffected by monster effects from monsters of lower rank/level than himself. His tribute effect is where he really shines. When he is Tribute Summoned by means of a Qliphort monster, he returns an opponent's card to their hand. The real kicker is that they cannot respond to this effect, so only Warning is going to be able to stop this guy.
Keep note of its interactions with Helix and Archive, as if you tribute them for Stealth, your opponent cannot respond to their effects either.
All in all, a great card for the Qliphort deck, and, although it doesn't One-Turn-Kill as easily as Qliphort Disk, it is still right beside it in usability terms.

This is another simple card with long text.  Qliphorts at their core are powerful, and this just increases their options a little.  It's a 2800 ATK monster (with Skill Drain) and it boosts your monsters by 300 ATK with its Pendulum Effect.  It's like being able to run 3 more Disks, so run 3 of these.  And while the return-to-hand effect doesn't sound too profound, it makes this OTK-prone deck even easier to OTK with.



Qliphort Stealth is a Level 8, Machine type, Pendulum Monster, with 2800 attack and 2100 defense, of the Earth attribute.  Like yesterday, for a Pendulum Effect, you cannot Special Summon aside from Qli Monsters, and said effect cannot be negated.  This is a Scale 1 card on the Pendulum scale, also like yesterday.  However, in addition to yesterday, all your Qli Monsters gain 300 attack, so you have a 3100 attack Monster after that.  As for a Monster effect, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing, but its Level becomes 4 and its attack becomes 1800.  If Normal Summoned or Set, Stealth is unaffected by any effect from a Monster whose original Level/Rank is lower than the current Level of this card.  That's a gem of an effect right there, and all the more reason to bring this guy out as a Level 8 Monster.  When Tribute Summoned using a Qli Monster(s), you can target a card on the Field and return it to the owner's Hand.  Said effect cannot be retaliated by card or effect by your opponent.  This guy is the focal point for Qlis and a big, awesome part of the Deck.  It's a boss

Hello Pojo Fans,

Qli week continues on with Qliphort Stealth. Stealth in the beginning follows the script of all "Qli" monsters- EARTH Machine-Types that have high ATK, low DEF, Level becoming 4 and its ATK becoming 1800 if brought out without a tribute. Search this monster out with your Qli support, namely Disk, Scout and Saqlifice.

Stealth's effect is simple to understand and easy to combo with. If Tribute Summoned you get a free Compulse of a card on the field (any card) and effects can't be activated in response. This gives Stealth some flexibility in providing mearely a simple send back of a card your opponent controls, or setting up big plays on your side of the field.

Tribute Carrier and Helix to summon Stealth, and after the effects chain, with Stealth's going last the chain resolves in reverse, making it impossible for your opponent to stop Helix or Carrier, let alone the Compulse Stealth is activating. Helix will kill a spell/trap, while Carrier will bounce a monster back to your opponents hand, a 3-for-3 move. Bouncing Scout back to your hand to drop in onto the field and use its effect again reminds us of the Trampoline play in the previous set.

Stealth on its own part Carrier, part Helix in regards to its effect being a combination of Helix and Carrier, as well as its Scale being 1 like Carrier. It's better than Carrier though as it can target any card on the field, rather than a monster on the field.
