  • Searches a HERO monster.
  • Destroys opponent Spell/Traps.


  • Spell/Trap removal effect requires you to have other HERO monsters on the field.



Contains a large pool of monsters including Destiny HERO, Elemental HERO, Evil HERO, Masked HERO, and Vision HERO making Elemental HERO Stratos a very versatile search card. They are adept at Fusion Summoning, so a good use for Elemental HERO Stratos is to search out fusion materials.

Elemental HERO Brave Neos

Search Elemental HERO Neos and combine with Elemental HERO Stratos to Fusion Summon Elemental HERO Brave Neos or Elemental HERO Neos Knight.

Elemental HERO Fusion

Some Elemental HERO Fusion monsters can be made with an Elemental HERO monster plus a monster of their respective attribute as material. They are quite easy to make when using Stratos as the Elemental HERO monster while using his effect to search out a HERO monster with the appropriate attribute.

HERO Fusion

Monsters like Elemental HERO Core and Vision HERO Trinity simply require multiple monsters of the archetype. You can use Elemental HERO Stratos to search for another materials while also using Stratos as a material.

Elemental HERO Solid Soldier

Normal Summon Elemental HERO Solid Soldier and use its effect to Special Summon Elemental HERO Stratos. This will let you destroy at least one of your opponent’s Spell/Trap cards when using Stratos’ first effect.

What your talking about?
Rod is never banned or limited
Could somebody please explain why a notably broken card, known to be an issue in the tcg that has a higher power level so it was forbidden for a long time, in a 40 card game, has been fully available in a 20 card game for a long while with not one single limit (not even limit 3)?

Its easy. Hero cards is still locked behind the future box. Moreover many deck currently overpowered hero, which is why it doesnt have any reason to be nerfed.
I mean what kind of TCG combo you could expect with our limited card and space in duel link?

They have the regular Mask Changex3 and 1x Form Change, can Xyz summon very easily. I don’t know what’s lacking in power.

And only because one guy in R&D hated the card.

Thankfully the guy doesn't work with Konami anymore, or at least not in R&D anymore.
I feel so much respect for this card because it destroys backrow and calls friends at the same time. It’s highly effective.

If Konami really releases Stratos in a box that have nothing to do with HEROes, that will be low...

Sadly the box have nothing to do with Heroes.

Only Stratos & Adoration in the box.

why? heros are dead at this point even with stratos good luck

Heroes come and go but they are never actually dead. Even when they are not tiered they are still a strong deck to use with tons of support and more to come in the future. And stratos is a staple in all hero decks.

Luckily pulled my first Stratos in a selection box way back. Then managed to pull a 2nd copy after using the 500 gems from Konami yesterday. Reset the box, and somehow pulled my 3rd copy on the first pack... unreal luck

We saw Dian/Solid soldier in selection box 2 and that came in the Vahalla box in August. So if everything goes right, Stratos/Adoration will be in the August box this year before Zexal drops.

Yes please. Stratos has became p2w material for quite a long time. By the time it reach the main box or mini box, anyone could play 3 of it.

Sadly we can expect the same thing for shadow mist and dark law. They gonna put those card in limited time box for sure.
I don’t understand why it’s so good there are monsters that can search for monsters that not part of an archetype
Example sangan Dogu etc

It's the fact that it can also destroy backrow, AND has access to all the HERO supports/allows fusions into the omni-heroes, due to its name.

Basically, unlike normal searchers, this one is not just a searcher, that's why it's so good.

(besides, Dogu is a much terrible searcher)

It is because how the effect work.
Stratos can add card as soon as you successfully summoned it, which mean you can use the added card right away. Sangan and such need to be sent to the GY that cant be manually done. Not to mention each searcher has its own restrictions. Stratos has a wider choice for heroes cards

also, 1800 ATK means it can be a decent beater if necessary, with just little or even no support, depending on the condition.
