Let's be honest.
Alsahm is the weakest link amongst the
With 1400, its stats are pretty much
Its effect of inflicting 1000 damage makes
for quick burn, but that's not what the deck's
If you're going to Special Summon a monster, you're
going to go with the other 4.
Deneb will +1 a card to your hand.
Unukalhai will fill your graveyard for a combo.
Vega will give you another summon for an XYZ.
Altair will let you summon another monster.
This card.... doesn't fit.
The deck bases on XYZ summoning and this card
It's generally a -1 for 1000 damage which
goes against the mentality of sacrificing life
points for card advantage.
There's a reason why people run Solemn

The only reason this card would be worth any play is
Take an extra 1000 damage to attrition down

Soul Charge with an extra 1000 damage or punish them

But this is really situational.
And that describes what this card is.
If you can get an extra target off Soul
Charge, hey why not?
But don't waste any resources summoning this.
It's not absolutely horrible.
It's just not something I would use in
I'd splash in 1 a copy of Alsahm in a locals
for fun, but never use more than 1 of this card in
Even burn decks wouldn't waste their Normal Summon
Power - 2/5 ; Can hurt Soul Charge players a little
Versatility – 2/5 ; 1000 damage is never bad but its
rare to see a situation where you need it.
Dependability – 2/5 ; You can summon it without
Altair or Soul Charge, but you wouldn't want it.
Card Advantage – 1/5 ; Unlike the other cards in the
archetype, this card does squat
Speed – 3/5 ; The effect happens on summon, which is
But the overall card itself isn't quick, and fast
doesn't mean good.
Traditional – 1/5
Advanced – 2/5
