Low base stats.
Must be sent to the graveyard with a Spell effect to activate revival.

HERO decks are known for their abitily to Fusion summon. And using them a fusion Spell will trigger the revival effect of Elemental HERO Solid Soldier. You can use the Fusion monsters with the more generic fusion materials so that you can use your Elemental Solid Soldier easier.
Yeah, it's not like the shortprinted Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier and Nekroz of Brionac were limited for a long time or anything. ;p
Skystriker's still just too new to hit in the TCG. (Which, incidentally, is really not a problem Masked HEROes have in Duel Links. They're probably the longest-lived top-tier deck at this point. Nobody would be pissed at Konami for nerfing them at this point.
I've played it for so long now that even I'll admit that it won't feel like the end of the world when they do whatever it is they have planned for the list for the heroes. I've already got other options worked out.
Got lucky and got a single copy from my pulls. Used him with Jaden in the tag duel, was able to fusion summon 2 Gia and 1 Nova master using only him, blazeman and stratos. God I wish E Heroes got more support
