Name: Stratosphere Giant
Cost: 8
Race: Giant
Civilization: Nature
Type: Creature
Rules Text:
When you put this creature into the battle zone, your opponent chooses up to 2 creatures in his hand and puts them into the battle zone.
Triple breaker (This creature breaks 3 shields.)
Flavor Text:
Born from the pain of the Fiona Woods, it finally put an end to Ballom's reign. With its foot.
Power: 13000
Mana Number: 1
Artist: Yarunoca
Rarity: S
Collector Number: S5

Well we finnally meet the one responcible for ballom's death, is he worth it?

Civilization: we've seen this efffect before, so it goes with the civ.

Effect: 8 mana For a triple breaker with 13000 power. Baza has nothing on that now does he? But what if your opponent is ready for him to come out?
Say you summon him, what does your opponent respond with? How bout a corile and a baza. The end result?
Your giant is on the top of your deck and your opponent is ready to smack you next turn with the fresh baza you brought out. Fun...
The best time to play this thing is when your opponent has no hand.

Cost: Yes it has a big power and triple breaker, but the opponent summons free monsters effect is just too much of a draw back.

Constructed 1/5 There are better choices,
Limited: 1/5 no need to help your opponent out.
 
Ferret Mage Stratosphere Giant
Nature
Race: Giant
Cost: 8
Effect:
-When you put this creature into the battle zone, your opponent chooses up to 2 creatures in his hand and puts it into the battle zone.
-Triple Breaker
Flavor: He is Iron Man.

Race: Giants are pretty much unseen in any competitive deck running Giants. No evo's, no support, no...anything pretty much.

Cost: 8 is unacceptable for what this card does, simply unacceptable. Since it's a Nature creature you could possibly summon him by at least turn six or so, but why do that when you could summon a cheaper Giant. Not to mention that at 8 mana is leaves it completely open to all of Darkness's kill spells, save Abyss. Snore....

Power: 13000 power is impressive for the cost, but considering that they're are cheaper cards out there with equal to near power then it's not all that impressive. Yeah, if evades power kill spells...but is that really all that impressive.

Effect: The killer part cometh at last. First off, it's a cheap, non evo, Triple Breaker. I don't need to say how awesome it is to have Triple Breaker. Second...WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD USE THIS!!!! By summoning this fattie you allow your opponent to gain a huge advantage by summoning ANY creature for no mana what so ever. Like Triple Breaker, I don't need to say anything. It sucks, pure and simple. You summon Strato Giant, your opponent summons two creatures who won't have summoning sickness next turn, unlike your sitting duck.

This only situation this might work is if you cast Lost Soul, but then again you'll rarely find yourself in a situation where you could use both on the same turn.

Constructed: 1/5 I don't need to give this a score, it barely even deserves a 1.
Limited: 1/5 HAHAHAHAHA.....
Art: 3/5 Nobody wants him...he just stares out at the world...
 
Eric Draven

Name: Stratosphere Giant
Cost: 8
Race: Giant
Civilization: Nature
Type: Creature
Rules Text:
When you put this creature into the battle zone, your opponent chooses up to 2 creatures in his hand and puts them into the battle zone.
Triple breaker (This creature breaks 3 shields.)
Flavor Text:
Born from the pain of the Fiona Woods, it finally put an end to Ballom's reign. With its foot.
Power: 13000

 

Cost: 8 mana. With Nature on your side, you could summon this faster. But why?

 

Effect: Triple Breaker and your opponent gets to summon up to two creatures from hand. Sure, triple breaker is great, but the opponent summoning is not. If your opponent doesn't have a hand at all when you summon this, then great. But how often will that happen?

 

Power: 13000 is strong, but with that effect, and costing 8 mana, surely there are better Giants. Oh, wait, there are. Like Avalanche Giant.
