  • Greatly increases equipped monster’s attack


  • Equipped monster loses alot of DEF
  • Need to pay 1000 LP during each of your standby phase to maintain this card.
  • Equip Spell may clog your backrow.


  • This card is only useful if your deck relies on swift beatdown to defeat your opponents, otherwise this card does more harm than the assistance it provides.

Maintenance Options

Paying 1000 Life Points every standby phase is a steep price, therefore we will require heavy healing options to sustain it.

Sorry, but I just laughed at you.
mask of brutality + secret pass to the treasures + Destiny HERO - Double Dude = OTK!!!

This + cure mermaid = instant trolling
just thinking about using this in farm decks where you need 1 equip for 10k reach. well its one of my two prismatics so I'm gonna try to use it anyhow lol
Can this be combined with the also new Spell Economics card?

Yeah but just use 2 equips that give 500 atk each and you have the same result
Honestly I think this mask can be pretty useful. You could boost your monster for one or more turns if you pay. Or equip it to your opponents defensive monster to get over it.

unless komoney release the "Destiny hero" monster card.

well i don't use equip card, but this card remind me a card name "destiny hero dystopia".
good to farm LD
Life point cost 0 + this = that's why they call it brutal XD

I dont think it can work that way. (1)Life Cost 0 says you can activate a card without paying LP cost as it usually do. But this doesn't require LP to activate, but only to maintain it during next turn. (2) You dont activate a skill before "standby phase"
With so many change position tech card in meta now, lose 1000 Def is not good at all ...
