How To Play

Masked Hero Anki & Mask Change

Mask Change
Mask Change
Quick Spell
Valiant Souls [SR]
Target 1 "HERO" monster you control; send it to the Graveyard, also, after that, if it left the field by this effect, Special Summon 1 "Masked HERO" monster from your Extra Deck with the same Attribute that the sent monster had when it was on the field (its original Attribute, if face-down).

The way Mask Change works is you send one HERO monster from your field to the graveyard, and then summon a Masked Hero monster from your extra deck that has the same attribute as the HERO monster that you sent. With all the Destiny Hero monsters having the DARK attribute, they are all possible targets for Mask Change to summon Masked Hero Anki.

Masked HERO Anki
Masked HERO Anki
DARK Warrior ★8
ATK 2800 / DEF 1200
Valiant Souls [UR]
Must be Special Summoned with "Mask Change" and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. This card can attack your opponent directly, but when it does so using this effect, the battle damage inflicted to your opponent is halved. When this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: You can add 1 "Change" Quick-Play Spell Card from your Deck to your hand. You can only use this effect of "Masked HERO Anki" once per turn.

The power from Masked Heroes and Mask Change comes from the fact that Mask Change is a quick-play spell card, meaning you can first attack with your Destiny Hero to destroy a monster or deal extra damage and then bring out your Masked Hero Anki for a second attack. You can also activate Mask Change in response to your opponent activating a card like Enemy Controller, Wall of Disruption, Super Rush Headlong etc to avoid those card effects and still get another attack in.

Besides having the highest attack of all three Masked Heroes available right now, Anki also has the best effect. He can attack your opponent directly, but his attack will be halved when you do so but most importantly when he destroys an opponent’s monster by battle, you can add another Mask Change spell card from your deck to your hand, meaning you can then use that Mask Change either on another one of your destiny hero monsters to summon another Masked Hero Anki, or use it on your Masked Hero Anki because he is a DARK attribute HERO monster. However if you do so and destroy another monster by battle you can’t add another Mask Change card to your hand because that effect can only be used once per turn.

Masked HERO Koga & Form Change

Masked HERO Koga
Masked HERO Koga
LIGHT Warrior ★8
ATK 2500 / DEF 1800
HERO Generation
Must be Special Summoned with "Mask Change" and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. This card gains 500 ATK for each monster your opponent controls. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can banish 1 "HERO" monster from your Graveyard, then target 1 face-up monster on the field; that target loses ATK equal to the ATK of the monster banished to activate this effect, until the end of this turn.
Form Change
Form Change
Normal Spell
Jaden/Yubel Lvl 40 [UR]
Target 1 "HERO" Fusion Monster you control; return it to the Extra Deck, then Special Summon from your Extra Deck, 1 "Masked HERO" monster with the same Level as that monster's original Level, but with a different name. (This Special Summon is treated as a Special Summon with "Mask Change".)

Destiny HERO - Celestial

Destiny HERO - Celestial
Destiny HERO - Celestial
DARK Warrior ★4
ATK 1600 / DEF 1400
Destiny Rulers [R]
When this card declares an attack: You can target 1 face-up Spell Card your opponent controls; destroy it, and if you do, inflict 500 damage to your opponent. If you have no cards in your hand, except the turn this card was sent to the Graveyard: You can banish this card and 1 "Destiny HERO" monster from your Graveyard; draw 2 cards. You can only use this effect of "Destiny HERO - Celestial" once per turn.

Destiny Hero - Celestial is great to draw cards, and with Mask Change now in this deck, more monsters will be sent to your graveyard.

Vision HERO Vyon

Vision HERO - Vyon
Vision HERO - Vyon
DARK Warrior ★4
ATK 1000 / DEF 1200
Destiny Rulers [R]
If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can send 1 "HERO" monster from your Deck to the Graveyard. You can only use this effect of "Vision HERO Vyon" once per turn. Once per turn: You can banish 1 "HERO" monster from your Graveyard; add 1 "Polymerization" from your Deck to your hand.

Vision HERO Vyon is used to mill Destiny HERO - Celestial out of your deck so that he can later be used to draw cards. You can also banish a HERO monster from your graveyard to search out Polymerization. Since your monsters except for Celestial don't really do much in the graveyard, it is fine if you use Vyon to search Polymerization even though you do not plan to fusion summon just to thin your deck.

Fusion monsters

For added utility you can use fusion monsters in your deck. Sometimes you won't be able to summon Masked HERO Anki or there are some situations where Masked HERO Anki would not be effective. In case you did not draw Mask Change you can fusion summon monsters to send Celestial to the graveyard and deplete your hand so that you can use his effect. In case Celestial is not in your hand Dangerous can send him from the deck to the graveyard to gain attack. When there is a monster you cannot overpower on your opponent's field, you can fusion summon Vision HERO Trinity for a 5000 attack beater and with his ability to attack 3 times during each battle phase, you can use him to clear your opponent's monsters.

Destiny HERO - Dangerous
Destiny HERO - Dangerous
DARK Warrior ★6
ATK 2000 / DEF 2600
Destiny Rulers [R]
1 "Destiny HERO" monster + 1 DARK Effect MonsterDuring either player's turn: You can discard 1 card; send 1 "Destiny HERO" monster from your hand or Deck to the Graveyard, and if you do, all "Destiny HERO" monsters you currently control gain 200 ATK for each "Destiny HERO" monster currently in your Graveyard, until the end of this turn. You can only use this effect of "Destiny HERO - Deadlyguy" once per turn.
Vision HERO Trinity
Vision HERO Trinity

Its just another otk deck. I don’t understand the hard on you guys have for otk decks, all they do is one combo, or more if they are a particularly good deck, destroy everything and beat for 4000. How is it “cool” in any way?

It's very efficient. You can end your duels very fast and have a consistent deck.

what would be a good replacement for Elemental HERO Stratos if I don't pull any?
<< Anonymous(Reaper)

There is no good replacement. It's the card that makes this deck so consistent. But I guess you could add some additional copies of the other monsters if you still want to build that deck.

This post-banlist version is just like mine except that I only use 2 faris and have one trap card used instead (tth right now, but I will have to change that soon), and I sometimes use decider instead of plasma for extra protection and because some people still don't understand his effect, amusingly enough. Or I use my other version: swap plasma for vision hero witch raider and have 2 fiendish chain (or 1 fiendish chain and 1 canadia) instead of destiny draw for the second trap. Idk about anyone else, but ever since fortress of gears was released and we have had this new version of the deck, I still have not seen any other hero players in pvp besides myself. I believe Konami is making a mistake already putting limits on this deck.

I've been using this deck with just 1 stratos and it's very explosive and fun. Hopefully they'll release adoration and stratos in a proper box soon.

Yami Aster 11days ago Reply
Sometimes I'll put one ehero solid soldier in it instead for the different monster since it works so good with stratos and so I can use dian. It is also a lot easier to get plasma out now. I just hope we get some other new hero stuff, too. I am hoping that disk commander and prisma could have a chance since they had errata for their effects.

Hey, the deck doesn't look so bad now right? The nerf only forced you to remove TTH. Why not to replace it with Floodgate? It's really great.
<< Anonymous(ABN)
Yami Aster 10days ago Reply
Probably since it can take care of Lunalight Sabre Dancer. But I am still leaning towards Divine Wrath, too. Idk yet. You know, ever since fortress of gears came out and we got this version, I still have yet to see even one hero player aside from myself in pvp. Everything is blue-eyes, shiranui, DM, Lunalight, and some Lightsworn things. Nerfing heroes was stupid since almost nobody uses it.

this deck is good but it needs blast you lose a lot of consistency without blast, he's well worth the level up

For anki f2p users this is a mistake stratos should've been added in a box but knowing konami they'll add it when this deck will be off the tier list again

Stratos itself is the ceiling of heroes powers level, so unless they eat too many limit 2/3s the deck should be fine. Even stuff like Increase and Faris are used in the TCG.
Anonymous
For those unlucky with the selection box, is there a way to build this without Stratos and Adoration? With more copies of Faris and Increase.
Candend
Tbh, running at least 2 chalice is great. 3200 direct damage is critical. You can also disrupt your opp. Tactic by negating his monster. I used to play Anki with it.
