Overall Rating: 7.5 / 10

This has been the card in the eyes of many who use darkness, but is it really that good? Let’s take a look.

RACE/CIVILIZATION- Darkness and light are receiving lots of support in this set. Especially with those Aquakamui and Alcadeias and Supporting Tulip, Re Bil and Shadow Moon (I’ve 4 Shadow Moons but I’m not playing Darkness!!!), you can see the popularity rising. But BEWARE – this card is deadly in non-pure-darkness decks. Just like the Nazis in Germany many many years ago who killed whoever wasn’t what Hitler thought was “truly German”. And when I say deadly I mean deadly to yourself. That’s why I never bother about Ballom even though I WILL use it if I started using Pure Darkness decks.

POWER- Hey, 12000! This is the highest from the first four sets and it can kill anything except the other 12k-18k freaks. (By the way, whenever I talk about power, maximum is 18k because I included Japanese and promo cards.) What’s more 8 mana for 12k power is more worth than few Triple Breakers, like Syrius (which I have) and King Tsunami (which is actually my favourite card) and then you still get another effect that is measly but cool. What’s that?

EFFECTS- Double breaker is good although it really deserves Triple. (But if it had triple breaker it would surely be half banned.) As for its other effect, this is what Darkness players are CRAZY about. This is mass destruction except for Darkness. However this is only a one-turn and once-occurring effect so better have 2 or 3 as backup. Or else you could have a Darkness deck with Water spells. Spiral Gate back your Ballom and then summon it again!

Good: 12000 and effect that kills all non-dark!!! A pure darkness must-have!!! What’s more NO summoning sickness!
Bad: Can easily be gotten rid off and effect only happens once.
Ugly: One of my friends went to trade Hanusa, Urth, Mazelan, Oquanos, Dakma Balgarow, Core Crash, Galklife, Supporting Tulip, Giriel etc for a Ballom! And then he got 2 Cruel Nagas and traded one away for another Ballom!!! See the obsession?
Artwork: 7.5/10 -looks like a bat with gigantic wings and a claw!
Limited: 5/10
It can kill you if you don’t use it right…
Constructed: 10/10
You can set a deck around it especially Pure Darkness. If you need the effect repeat, you can use Pure Darkness with Water Spells too!
Overall Rating: 7.5/10
