Overview

There are only 3 Masked Heroes in the game right now, but just one of them seems actually good, which is Masked HERO Anki. This card together with Mask Change can be added to a destiny hero deck, which already had success on its own, but will now get a huge power boost.

How to Use

The main idea is to use a beatstick variant of a Destiny Hero deck with the skill Destiny Calling, but add in 3 copies of Mask Change together with Masked Hero Anki in the extra deck. We are basically revisiting this decklist http://duellinks.gamea.co/c/phu7qflz , which uses Cosmic Cyclone to trigger your skill Destiny Calling putting Dark City on your side of the field.

Anki OTK

(This OTK is only possible because of a bug that doesn't half Anki's attack when he attacks directly with his effect and Titan Showdown is active.)
Use Cosmic Cyclone to banish a spell/trap card and reduce your LP to make Titan Showdown active, then used masked change to special summon Masked HERO - Anki. Anki is able to attack your opponent directly and because of Titan Showdown he will deal 5600 damage. If your opponent does not control any spell/trap card for you to use Cosmic Cyclone on, you can turn on self-chain. First activate Masked Change on your HERO and then use Cosmic Cyclone on Masked Change, you will still be able to summon Anki with your LP reduced for Titan Showdown.

Masked Hero Anki & Mask Change

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.

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.

Destiny HEROes

We use the same three Destiny Hero beatstick monsters as before, because they have the highest attack but also good effects. Destiny Hero - Celestial is great to draw cards, and with Mask Change now in this deck, more monsters will be sent to your graveyard. Decider cannot be destroyed by a level 6 or higher monster, which can counter Cyber Angel decks, he can also bring back (one time) a hero monster from your graveyard to your hand. Drilldark will allow you to swarm the field, which could be very powerful if you have access to a Mask Change spell card.

If you start with Drilldark, one other Destiny Hero monster and Mask Change you can; summon those two Destiny Hero monsters, go in for one or two attacks (depending on the amount of monsters you might want to leave one monster on the field to be destroyed by Anki), then use Mask Change on one of them to summon Anki, destroy an opponent’s monster, add a Mask Change to your hand so you can send the last Destiny Hero monster to the graveyard to get out your second Masked Hero Anki. This combo could easily be an OTK.

Spell/Trap Protection

Beside protecting your monsters and allowing you to activate your skill, you can significantly slow down some decks that rely on a specific spell/trap card like Amazoness, Archfiend, and Sea Stealth Attack.

Forbidden Chalice

Another great card right now in the meta because it can stop Sylvans from activating their effects, but it also has synergy with Masked Hero Anki because if you attack your opponent directly and activate Forbidden Chalice during the damage step you will deal 3200 points of direct damage instead of just 1400.

Destiny Draw

Destiny Draw is a great draw card that can help you get to your combo faster. You can also use the discard to put Destiny HERO - Celestial into your graveyard and use him to draw 2 more cards the next turn.

Vision HERO Vyon

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.

Additional Notes

  • The core of the deck with Destiny Calling is 3x Destiny Hero - Drilldark, 3x Destiny Hero - Celestial, 3x Destiny Hero - Decider, 2x Cosmic Cyclone, 3x Mask Change . The remaining slots can be filled with whatever good backrow cards you own. We included Powerful Rebirth, Super Rush Headlong, Enemy Controller, Mirror Wall and Floodgate Trap Hole to give you some examples.

  • You can also include the Mask Change+Masked Hero Anki package into a fusion destiny hero deck.

A fusion variant of this deck would use this as its core;

Vision HERO - VyonVision HERO - VyonVision HERO - VyonDestiny HERO - MaliciousDestiny HERO - MaliciousDestiny HERO - Celestial

Can be used to replace Cosmic Cyclone, although not as effective for disrupting backrow.

Can be more useful than Cosmic Cyclone in some situations, but if your opponent activates his continuous trap during your draw phase this card is dead in your hand.

Do you not use Fusion? Or Dreamer? or Destiny Draw? or Malicious? or Trinity? or Dangerous? No counter trap?
Your defense or offensive are risky.

Run fusion my friend!! Imo, Dangerous is the trump card in HEROEs decks not Anki!! Besides increasing ATK of your D-HEROES, Dangerous can empty your hand and dump heroes in your graveyad to thin your deck and draw mask change easily with Celestial! running Malicious also helps thinning your deck and havig an extra hero for poly or mask. Depending on the situation, you might rely on Trinity --->>

Trinity helps if the opponent's back row is null and the monster field is full (helps with Fur, vamps, and cipher soldier)!! Dreamer is a good addition to protect your D-Heroes and have an extra target for mask change. Running Milacious & Dreamer + Poly helps with SB because they can only Fate one card!! Bottom line: Poly is the key not Mask especially on the long run!!

WHAT A SOLID POWERHOUSE !

Fusion version. The only thing I can't seem to decide on is if I should drop 2 deciders or 1 decider and one drilldark to add 2 malicious instead. Sometimes I get the worst luck, like only getting dark hex sealed fusion with all spells/traps in my starting hand in my non-fusion version of this and I can just see myself starting with 2 malicious, so I am still afraid. But I will probably add them.

I just try to push for OTK as fast as possible thats all there is to it really

You try to create an opening by baiting/back row removal and get the milling going.

My favorite milling strategy is using 3 vyons. He can not only banish another copy of himself to get the poly and thin out the deck faster, I also like to use him to dump celestial into the graveyard to get his effect going fadter to get 2 more cards.

I run 13 Monsters and always get either Vision Hero - Vyon or the poly and fuse for Destiny Hero - Dangerous. My goal is to get Dangerous out early if I didn't draw one of my two mask changes in the starting hand. I just don't see brick hands a lot worst for me is everyonce in a while I will draw nothing but monster and go first.

That sounds good. I changed this to 8 monsters and sometimes use Balance. I always now include 3 backrow removers and 2 effect killers. Along with Forbidden Chalice, Divine Wrath is a wonderful card that can stop and kill monsters like beat and vampire vamp, while getting celestial or another d-hero into the graveyard to use the first's effect.

Hmm am I the only one that feels Celectial is not needed x2 in the deck?

Getting one in the grave is hella easy and the second one 9/10 won't even see use sinds the duel is over before you can even use it a second time, atm I'm running only one and really don't miss the second which in turn gives me the option to play 1 ECON
