Lock your cage doors and hold on to your Yamatagotos, it's time for a Magical History Tour!

Sandalphon is an interesting being. He is an archangel (like Raphael, Michael and formerly Lucifer), and is known as the guardian of unborn children (which may explain the weird baby-caging in his other artworks). He primarily appears in both Jewish and Christian writings. A surprising find is that according to some sources (mostly in the Jewish Torah), he is the "twin brother" of Metatron. His musical affinity may come from him being a "Hazzan", or Master of Heavenly Song. In contemporary Christianity Sandalphon is basically the relaxing ambient CD you hear during a Yoga class, healing others ailments through music.

He is described in the Babylonian Talmud as insanely tall, which explains why he easily dwarfs even the sun in this artwork. He is an incredibly benevolent and heroic figure, waging constant battle with Satan alongside his fellow archangel Michael. He also collects prayers and sends them up to God for him to listen to.

I know I'm neglecting to talk about a particular poem about Sandalphon named after him, but I wasn't looking at that as a source. I focus more on his descriptions in religious texts.

I initially gave you the upvote for the intro alone but the rest was actually very interesting, that and it was short and sweet so here is a second honorary upvote that isn't actually a real upvote.

lmao I forgot how absolutely massive Sandalphon is.

To give you a better idea of his size as described in mythology, that orb directly in front of his midriff is the sun.

I didn't know that. That's very interesting.

Does that mean the baby he keeps in the cage is ginormous as well?

How is that the sun when the earth right in front of him is much bigger?

By Dakine 3 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
Makes for a great sub with that new unbindability and SBR, but it's hardly like his leader skill is lacking. All things considered he's about on par with LMeta, I'd say:
++ Farmable
+ More HP
+ Unconditional attack boost (though I think she's due a buff to remove this soon)
+ SBR
+ Row/OE
~ Marginal RCV loss
- Slightly lower attack boost
- No bind clear
- No skill boosts
- High CD

I mean Amaterasu still nukes them both from orbit, but since this guy is farmable the fact he can stand alongside a GFE is either incredible on his part or poor on hers. Probably a bit of both.

Awoken/Super Ult Metatron WHEN?

I suppose ominent is a perfectly cromulent descriptor of this embiggened depiction of Sandalphon.

the art is pretty icky. I find myself liking the new years art more. He looks like a gold and white butterfly except not looking as pretty. well the red eyes on his face make him more creepy.

By Trioniks 3 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
The only reason I am considering this over the New Year version is that he is unbindable now. Other than that...I still like the New Year version better.

It might be because I am an IAP/casual player but can someone explain why this card will be better on an AAma or LKali team if you have to choose between the two (NewYear vs this Sandalphon)? Please...thank you in advance

Since awoken San Quan is now boosting water. Looks like I really have to look at sandalphon....

FlyingKing in reply to Trioniks 3 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
If you're purely IAP, get this guy. Heck, even if you are IAP, get this guy. He's worth having for the art alone, also since he'll be fusion material for the upcoming descend Dragonbound, he's worth keeping even more. He may take awhile to skill up, but he's one of the best farmable cards in the game now, up there with L. Valk and Athena.

Farmable: Izanami+mini DQXQ+mini LZL+Sandal+Takemikazuchi+Izanami

Pros:
Extreme recovery.
Burst? LZL and Sandaphon.
Lack orb? mini DQXQ.
3K heal compensation. LZL skill can resplenish HP.
Farmable. MINI LZL and DQXQ from pal rem.
10% light guard.
Sandalphon can't be bound. Active skill reduce damage while waiting for bindind to end.
Both orb enhance and row.
Duo color, light-water.
Can use rem like amaterasu or metatron for maximize effect, mostly bind clear and SB, SBR.

Cons:
Extreme cost. The team has unbelievable cost. So it is sooo unrealistic.
Low HP, even with 297+, even lowered with Izanami's LS. 12K-ish. Any hit above 13K kill you instantly. Can use Takemikazuchi to tank a hit.
Can get easily bound.
No bind clear.
mLZL and mDQXQ hard to get.
Very lacks skill boost. Very lacks SBR.
Very high CD for Sandal.
Noone would use it if they have Amaterasu or LMeta anyway.

Not being a healer team guy, for the most part, this is a pretty nice unbindable leader, considering it's not REM, and with multiplayer it's not hard to max skill. Glad I found out about this evo.

This artwork is creepy but cool, but he is actually an excellent lead for non-rem players.

So cool and yet this art terrifies me for some reason. I mean, his caged cupid became the Earth. That's scary.
On the subject of the card itself?
Unbindable and SBR?
Sweet.

So, I have to wonder, how does it really compared to CNY (Chinese New Year) Sandalphone? 50% more bind resist for a full 100% and a SB compared to missing out on 4 OE and 2 Dark Resists.

1.5x HP boost instead of 1.25x and same attack boost.

Seems like a decent, farmable leader, but the other is obviously better if you need a healer boost.

Wish he had a prong or more enhance orbs or something more. His awakenings are meh for my A Ama team. Unbindable is nice but not essential since binds aren't really an issue on an A Ama team. SBR is completely unneeded since dual A Ama already has 4 SBRs; no problem finding another sub for the last one needed. And finally, rows are nice but tpas are more versatile; ideally I like to see both on a card. I've been using SQ despite her off color but with her awoken card coming and the change to 2x water instead of healer I'm seriously considering Sandalphon as a replacement on my core healer team. Awoken SQ is just too good to pass up for my water team. Wish I had 2! Choices, choices! Anyone else have this dilemma?

I don't get it. The earth is in the foreground? The sun is so far back that it is the little ball Bye his stomach? He is so huge that he could crush the world with one hand but his HP is 2745 and his atk is 1307? I love this game but maybe I had too much to drink before I looked at this tonight
