The Digimon Card Game Twitter has updated with card previews from Booster Set 10 Xros Encounter. This time it's Baalmon & Beelzebumon.

Baalmon appears to be doing Kamiuchi, a lightning move that is quite effective against Holy Digimon. We also get the Xros-era version of Beelzebumon with a nice level of detail, and really good framing to show off differences from the standard Beelzebumon.



Previous previews for Booster Set 10 Xros Encounter:

Booster Set 10 Xros Encounter will be out on May 27th.






We have clean card images from Starter Decks 12 & 13, Luxury Finished Tamers, plus Battle Pack 11.

Baalmon is always goated. Redesign Beelzemon is trying to have the nicest art it can in an attempt to get me to like it...

After reading the effects, it's weird to imagine redesign Beelzemon evolving from a composite Shoutmon

Baalmon
Ultimate | Free | Wizard / Bagra Army
[When Attacking] You may trash up to 3 cards from the top of your deck.
[On Deletion] If you have 10 or more cards in your trash, you may play 1 [Beelzemon] from your trash without paying its memory cost.

Beelzemon
Mega | Virus | Demon Lord/Xros Heart
[This card can Digivolve from a lv.5 Digimon with [Xros Heart] in traits for 3 memory]
[On Play] [When Digivolving] You may trash 3 cards from the top of your deck. Then for every 10 cards in your trash, delete 1 of your opponent's level 4 or lower Digimon.
<Inherited Effect>: [End of Attack] (Once Per Turn) Gain 1 memory for every 10 cards in your trash.

Maybe if they include Xros Wars Wisemon? or Knightmon?

yeah, those are pretty fitting, so is Baalmon, but it's still able to evolve from Shoutmons as well which I'm not against because I like weird things like that

In the card game, I'm guessing that any effect or evolution that specifically calls for the Xros Wars version of a Digimon will simply state that the Digimon needs to have "Xros Heart" or something as its classification.

Those are variants, giving them distinct names defeats the purpose.

To be fair, it’s safe to assume Wisemon at least would likely be purple and thus wouldn’t need Xros Heart to be able to Digivolve into Beelzemon just as Baalmon can Digivolve into Beelzemon without the need for Xros Heart.

Lots of variants have a different name.

Baalmon's one of my favorite designs to come out of Xros Wars, so it's neat to see them get their debut card. XW Beelzemon conversely was a design I wasn't the biggest fan of, not necessarily because of thinking it's a bad design per se but rather just vastly preferring the original, but I'll give Tonamikanji props for drawing them really well, feel the art here is solid.

Personally I have considered "Zebubmon or Zebulmon" as a name for it taking from the latter half of Beelzebub/Beelzebul.

The latter might be good as Beelzebul is a lesser used spelling of the name.

It does fit even more as the root name Ba'al Zebul was supposed to mean "Lord of the Heavenly Dwelling" while Ba'al Zebub as Lord of the Flies was speculated to be a derogatory twist put on the God Baal/Ba'al by the Israelites.

Honestly as a Catholic I find it very interesting how the Abrahamic Faiths have a long history of "reinventing" other religions Deities as Demons, the Old Testament started it but it continued on well after that with a notable example being a lot of the Demons in the Ars Goetia being based on Old Pagan Gods.

Is a bit hard to pin down what Beelzebumon's (2010) design is, I guess a more para-military Beelzebumon? It looks more like a traditional armor, while the original is a very straightforward leather biker.

I only noticed now that Baalmon is basically Beelzebumon being covered in seals to resemble an angel. As if it was a demon contained. I'm not sure if this is the concept, but I like it.

Edit: turns out they are knowledge amulets, still very cool.

Last I remember checking, he was originally the "lord of the flies" in that he's the God you pray to to ward off flies and other similar pests, a la Myiagros, and then that got turned back on him by later, antagonistic sources to the people of Ekron.
