Of all the Riotspolis Council members, Prof Balthazar was one of the rare few to see the opening up to the outside world as a positive thing. And indeed the discovery of Vortex portals and strange dimensional faults appearing sporadically in Clint City had allowed him to develop new advanced theories on the time-space question (theories which were then applied by Prof Hartnell to his clock). But Prof Balthazar wants to go much further and create an independent portal generator, so not only can he can become the first Kaironaut, but also the first to cross an artificially created real "vortex". And thanks to thermonium, all this is now possible, but does it not also risk setting off a time travel paradox with potentially devastating consequences?

It was during recent work on the new Clint City subway line that the underground shelter, housing Riotspolis, was drilled apart. This Utopian city, dreamt up by wise men at the turn of the century, could now wave goodbye to its tranquility and isolation. Unsurprisingly upset by this turn of events, the Riotsville Council, led by the Patriarch Pericles, decided that the time had come for them to at last emerge from their isolation and impose their “wise rulings” on this barbaric bunch of hoodlums inhabiting the surface.

    pr balthazar 8 (pwr) 6 (dmg) ability: stop opponent ability , bonus: victory or defeat + 1 pillz

    pros:
    - a massive power of 8
    - stop opponent ability can help closing some annoying abilities
    - 6 dmg can make 2HKO with octana and some other cards
    - +1 pillz can help you a lot
    - good artwork

    cons:

    - stop cards hurt him a lot like josephine
    - attack manipulation clans
    - rare card ( cost a lot of money )
    overall rating: 9.5
    this card is beast just like hawk and the bonus will give you another pillz so it's just like u can get extra attack and if the ability was sob this card will be way much better since it can cancel attack manipulation bonuses this card is really great and will be very fun to use at T2 along side with Pericles and Dr Copernica

    Everyone is saying that this card is "pretty much Hawk" however he isn't.
    Now I get why people might think that because he has 8 power and with his bonus he can over pill effectively meaning as he can play 1 extra pill that's +8 attack which is the same as Hawk.
    However, Hawk is actually better for a few reason.
    1st reason is that Hawk has +8 attack even against all stars and other power reducers.
    2nd reason is that Hawk can also be played on the last round and still have +8 attack.
    These are two of the main reason she why Hawk is better and could potential win the match.
    I get that you could argue that Pr Balthazar wouldn't be effected against cancel opp. Attack manipulation, but you could also say that Hawk isn't effected by cancel opp. Pill manipulation, so really it's tit-for-tat looking at all these different scenarios. However the two advantages Hawk has are two advantages he has over this card with his ability to be used at any round and not being restricted being his main advantage.
    I know it doesn't seem like much but having that last round option could win the round.

    Older players may remember a Yugoslavian cartoon, professor Balthazar.

    I have been playing this card a lot in elo and it is a power house. The card is what riots needed. I would not be surprised of a permanent ban on the card.

    I'm not saying this card isn't op, but it shouldn't be banned( now maybe that's just because I play riots but whatever) the card is good but like some one said earlier our only real good DR is already banned we kinda needed this.

    This card in a sense has +8 attack because you can use an extra pill since you're going to get one win or lose. So he pretty much is Hawk.
