Masked HERO: deck recipe

update 25/10/2018


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

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

Use these cards so that you can attack your opponent safely. Use Cosmic Cyclone to banish potentially harmful backrow. Xing Zhen Hu pins down your opponent's backrow making them unusable and take up your opponent's backrow space.
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.

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.

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
Destiny HERO - CelestialDestiny HERO - CelestialDestiny HERO - DreamerPolymerizationPolymerizationMask Change
Mask ChangeMask ChangeMasked HERO AnkiMasked HERO AnkiMasked HERO AnkiDestiny HERO - Dangerous

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.

Other Useful Cards

Can be used to replace Cosmic Cyclone, although not as effective for disrupting backrow.
Fire Formation - Gyokkou
Fire Formation - Gyokkou
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.
Forbidden Chalice
Forbidden Chalice
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.

They printed Vision Hero Vyon.

Masked Hero is the only one without a single main deck monster printed, even though Jaden played several in the manga.

I'm just sitting over here with my Bujin Deck laughing at any Anki player that tries to OTK me as I have a deadly crane or I outright stop the OTK as Anki can't search if the monster doesn't go to the GY. So a deadly little rabbit protecting me.

Lol So instead of people being able to play the deck they want in a balanced game, you'd rather people have to build to beat one specific deck.

No offense but you're pretty should consider a live in helper if you plan to survive life.

Adding counter cards doesn't mean that you can't use the deck you don't want to. There is a difference between that and building a new deck. You need a live in helper to assist you with this game since you cannot understand that. Offense intended, loser. But don't worry, Konami will give you and the other babies your pacifiers soon so that you don't have to think too hard.

Amazoness threat : Onslaught, Princess

Fur Hire threat : Dyna, Donpa, Wiz

Heroes threat : Anki

it is because Dakini is free. Amazons are free (Onslaught R card) and Fur Hire is in a mini box. If Konami will ever touch a UR/SR card from a main box, that would be a long long time to go..

Exactly. That was my point. But this one guy refuse to believe that konami haven't limit anki because he is the boss monster and not because he is a main box UR lmao.

If Onslaught were released as a UR instead of R, it would be untouched just like Anki. Even Restructer Revolution too

Nerf is so easy, just semi-limit Mask Change.
What is Mask Charge for ?

And if it is Anki semi limited, decider is there. Still possible to use him 3 times either way. The deck won't be quite as good, though.
