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.
Destiny Calling (Skill) Can be used after your Life Points are at 2000 or below. Play the Field Spell "Dark City." If there already is Field Spell on your side of the Field, return it to your hand. This skill can only be used once per Duel.
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.
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.
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.
Beside protecting your monsters and allowing you to activate your skill, this card is very good right now in the meta because it almost guarantees you’ll win versus Sea Stealth Attack decks, which are tier 1 right now.
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.
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;
Looks like you've only listed 18 cards for your main deck, so you have more room. I'd personally drop 1-2 drilldarks and add 2-3 vyons. Then you have room for destiny draw when you get it. Otherwise, yeah, looks pretty solid. Good luck.

Can you mask change swamp mirrorer if you make him dark warrior?
Opened maybe 30 packs and pulled 2x Mask Change and 1x Anki. Reset the box and pulled another Madk Change within the first 10 packs! I feel like I won't be getting another Anki for a while though. Still having fun with 1x Anki, 2x Vapor, and 2x Goka
LOL, just like you and all the other people who bet they were going to limit SSA deck when the next box came out. When will people realize that Konami will not limit cards such as these. OP's Salt Level: 10/10 OP's Tilt Level: 10/10
Vapor requires you to run one of the Water heroes, none of which are great in the deck, but it does help a ton against Sea Stealth and against Glads. Goka would almost make sense if you were running Blazeman, but if you're running Blazeman you're probably struggling to decide which 5 cards warrant an extra deck slot, and Goka just isn't quite good enough.
