The latest structure deck Destiny Rulers has been the perfect addition to the game to finally make Destiny Heroes viable on the ladder.

There are two possible variants, a beatstick version that relies on Aster’s Skill “Destiny Calling” and a fusion version that either uses the Restart or Destiny Calling skill, this version also runs Red-Eyes Slash Dragon.

How To Use [Previous]

Using Cosmic Cyclone or paying for Mirror Wall allows you to activate your skill and get the field spell Dark City on your side of the field. There are a few reasons why you’d prefer the Destiny Hero version over the Elemental Hero version, but the main reason is for the effect of Destiny Hero - Celestial, which can refuel your hand later on in the duel when you are in a tough position. One copy of D-Fusion is included which can be very powerful if you have 2 destiny Heroes on the field because you can attack with both of them and then use the trap to summon Destiny Hero - Dangerous for a third attack. You can also use D-Fusion defensively if your monsters are targeted/affected by your opponent’s spells/traps.

When you use the fusion variant you’ll quickly notice how easy it is to fusion summon with the deck, often you’ll be able to summon Destiny Hero - Dangerous and Red-Eyes Slash Dragon in the same turn.
The featured decklist runs two copies of Cosmic Cyclone, which is preferred if you use Destiny Calling. Cosmic Cyclone is your way to deal with your opponent’s backrow so that it’s safe to attack with your big monsters. If you prefer more defense you can swap those out and run Enemy Controller/Super Rush Headlong and switch your skill to Restart.

Destiny Hero - Dangerous & Red-Eyes Slash Dragon

Although Vision Hero Trinity is also included in the extra deck, most of the times you’ll want to summon Destiny Hero Dangerous, and Red-Eyes Slash Dragon with the effect of The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion.

Although Dangerous’ attack is quite low, he can raise it with the help of his effect. His quick-effect allows you to discard one card and send one destiny hero from your deck to the graveyard to increase this card , and every other Destiny Hero’s attack by 200 for each Destiny Hero in the Graveyard. This effect is also useful to get Destiny Hero - Malicious, Destiny Hero - Celestial and Destiny Hero - Dreamer in the graveyard, three monsters that have good effects when they are in the GY.

Summoning Red-Eyes Slash dragon will always be done with The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion, and often the other fusion material will be your Destiny Hero Dangerous because that way you can equip your Destiny Hero-Dangerous to your Red-Eyes Slash Dragon , bringing him back if something happens to your Red-Eyes.

Vision Hero Vyon & Destiny Hero - Malicious

A great way to fusion summon is with Vision Hero Vyon. You can normal summon him to get Malicious in the graveyard, banish one Hero monster (not Malicious) to get polymerization in your hand and banish Destiny Hero - Malicous to get another Destiny Hero - Malicous on your field.

Dumping Destiny Hero - Celestial in the graveyard on your first turn is also a great way to set up for your future turns.

The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion & Powerful Rebirth

To use The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion’s effect you’ll need to have two monsters on the field (The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion included). That’s why Powerful Rebirth synergizes well with it, you can either get back The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion from the graveyard and normal summon a Warrior/Destiny Hero (depending on which monster you want to fusion summon), or get back a warrior/Destiny Hero from the GY and normal summon The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion.

If you normal summon The Dark and special summon a warrior with Powerful Rebirth (to fusion summon Red-Eyes Slash Dragon afterwards), pick Vision Hero Vyon if he is available so that you can use his effect to send a Destiny Hero from your deck to the graveyard again.

Because this deck can quickly fill your graveyard with monsters, Powerful Rebirth is also a great pick in general to put more pressure on your opponent, or quickly go for game.

Destiny Hero - Malicious, Destiny Hero - Dreamer & Destiny Draw

Although it might seem bricky to have two copies of Malicious and one copy of Dreamer, there are a lot of ways to get them quickly from your hand (if you drew them) to the graveyard for their effects, which is why it’s still worth it to run them in your deck. Mainly polymerization, the effect of Destiny Hero - Dangerous and one of the most effective ways is with Destiny Draw.

Destiny Hero - Celestial & Destiny Hero - Decider

The only two beatstick monsters in the fusion variant, and great picks to bring back with Powerful Rebirth if you are going for extra pressure/quick lethal.
Everyone who has tested out Destiny Heroes knows how amazing Celestial can be. Destiny Hero - Decider is included once because his effect (which can only be used once per duel) to add a Hero monster from your graveyard to your hand can be very powerful to bring back for example Vision Hero Vyon.

Additional Notes

A lot of the Destiny Hero cards have a lot of effects and text. Consider reading them carefully one by one before starting a duel, because you’ll quickly realize that there are a lot of plays possible when using Destiny Heroes, and you’ll have to think ahead about which monsters to send to the graveyard and their effects you could activate.

Unfortunately because of the way Konami set up structure decks, you are obligated to spend money on the game if you want to copy these example decks because you can only buy each structure deck once with gems. (Destiny Hero - Celestial and Vision Hero Vyon are only included twice and once (resp.) in each structure deck).


Hot New Top
I feel like it is hard to run the big ones (plasma and dogma) if there is any fusion focus at all. So I put dasher here instead. If anyone thinks I can still do plasma, any advice is appreciated.

To continue what I was saying the faster you can get polymerization with Destiny Hero the better you changes of wining. :) hope this advice helps you man gl on your Deck.
Ridiculous that celestial and vyon are still on the banlist. Just because this wasn't an EX deck doesn't mean that we didn't pay money for extra copies of this, too. And if they are still THAT worried about the f#%!*/g enemy controller getting abused here, then they should also just make it so that it can't be used with anything that used to be on the list.

2700 DEF monster that can be summoned without tribute "garbage"?

Wow, the guy above belongs in the trash can

Well it is not that broken, but with 4000 LP this card cast provide some surprise element which is hurt. The same reason why they relase Dangerous but no Dystopia

No, if you know anything about Yugioh, this card is garbage. It'll rarely progress your own plays outside of being used as poly material, and it'll give your opponent free resources. It might see some lower level experimentation but it's nowhere even remotely close to being OP.
Celestial is limited...
You guys have any ideas on which Aster drop card I should tech? Dasher or Diamond Dude?

Fear Monger's much better than either of them (especially in a Polymerization build). Dasher's Summon effect does nothing for the deck, and Destiny HEROes don't usually run many Normal Spells, so both are pretty useless. If you want a Destiny HERO out of the norm, go for Fear Monger or Blademaster. There aren't really any other options that make sense.
You do know that Elemental Hero on Destiny Hero can be used simultaneously how is the best way to make a mix of these cards
Now with celestial and vylon being limited, i feel bad for those who spend bucks on it

Lovely Aster Reply
With the sale, I only spent $1 for each deck (I bought 2 and used gems for the first one a long time ago). So it wasn't expensive in terms of real money. But I still wish that they would stop the nerfs already. Forget Anki, I just like Aster's cards.
If u putting powerful rebirth, consider using witch rider since u can tribute both powerful rebirth and its recently special summon monster.
Celestial now is gone and we Ned a new one to fill the blank, any idea??
I find it hilarious how Anki, a Judai card, gets better use in an Aster deck lmao

I kind of feel sorry for Judai, but at the same time, I'm happy it helps Edo.

i agree! Judai's theme deck never get improvement since GX world open.

Before (Deck Rank)
Alexis > Chazz > Dr.Vellian > Judai > Aster > Bastion.

Alexis/Aster > Dr.Vellian/Chazz > Bastion > Judai/Jesse. sad!

The irony is that when GX first got released in Duel Links, Aster/Edo was the one who was stuck with basically nothing for his deck theme, and it was basically just Plasma decks. Judai/Jaden actually had more to start with in the beginning. But now it is more the other way around, but I think that they are starting to get better with the E-Heroes now. For more irony, my Aster uses E-Hero Woodsman.

I honestly think the same since Anki (Shadow demon) is a Jyudai's card.
And now celestial is semi limited card and vyon is limited card so sad :(
Surprised to see the lack of love for Plasma, much easier to summon/protect with the structure deck, plus the blanket effect monster negation absolutely kneecaps a lot of popular decks.

I admit that my love for Big Red (Trinity), Dangerous, and Slashy (Red-Eyes) has been winning out these days, and I don't combine fusions with Plasma. But I plan to make a second D-Hero deck with Plasma, some different 4-stars, and possibly Witch Raider with Powerful Rebirth. If Aster is really getting D-Shield, that would rock. D-Hero decks and Aster are my fangirl love, and I'll keep using them!

Plasma is one of my favorite cards, it's just so damn hard to summon and so easy to counter (Floodgate, SRH, etc). But as soon as I finish building this deck I'll throw in a copy of Plasma. Very cool card.

Yeah, Plasma is more better in original game which has 5 monsters and 5 spell/traps slot. In DL is quite risky since if u already had normal summon 1 monster to tribute for Plasma then ur Plasma has no protection or monster support since his DEF is weak

One of my very first deck is plasma turbo with reinfocement as the skill.

I use cosmic compass for the tribute fodder since it can summon 2 tokens if your opponent control at least 2 monsters. The deck is pretty good and can get me to plat in the early days (back when the meta is still backrow reliance)
