Essential Card

This Quick-Play Spell card is the only card that can Special Summon Masked HERO Anki currently. It can also be searched via Masked HERO Anki’s effect.

Destiny HERO Support

The main reason of using Masked HERO Anki together with Destiny HERO monsters is because all Destiny Hero monsters are DARK attribute, regardless of face-up or face-down, therefore Mask Change can be easily applied to them. Destiny HERO decks have incredible drawing mechanism which makes Masked HERO Anki a powerful addition to their deck. Recommended Destiny HERO - Drilldark because it is able to Special Summon another “Destiny HERO” monster from your Hand, with ATK equal or less than Destiny HERO - Drilldark. This grants you more options to use Mask Change on, and you can also choose to use Mask Change during your Battle Phase, after you have attacked with Destiny HERO - Drilldark, to Special Summon Masked HERO Anki for additional attacks. Destiny HERO - Dreamer is able to protect your HERO monster from being destroyed by battle, while being special summoned to the Field, it can also act as a fodder for you to apply Mask Change on it to Special Summon Masked HERO Anki. Destiny HERO - Celestial mainly is used to be banished together with another Destiny HERO monster from your Graveyard in order to draw more cards, and if it attacks, it can destroy 1 face-up Spell card your opponent controls. D-Spirit allows you to Special Summon 1 level 4 or lower Destiny HERO monster from your hand, provided you do not control another Destiny HERO on the Field.

What i don't get is that I just watched a video by Duel Links Meta and he attacked directly with this guy for double damage without playing anything to double his attack? Is it a bug?

So the Vegabond Special Summoned this card using Mask Change, and I Massivemorphed the card so he could not attack me directly. Yet, he was able to attack me directly with the double Attack Points. Is this a bug or am I not understanding something about this card?

If you activated it during damage step then it's not a bug. It's your misplay

Wow, I thought this was a bug that someone exploited on me... But I just tried it with Submarineroid and it works. You just have to make sure toggle is on and it has to be the damage step not the "declared battle" step or the "battle" step.

Probably at least 2 since he is the best Masked Hero. I'm running one while I try to get my second but there are many times I feel like I need a second since he is pretty fragile.

Practically all Masked Heroes are Kamen Rider reference, so maybe yes.

i love hero decks... but i cant see the full potential in speed duel with 5 monsters in extra deck. Also, no "Form change".

Mask change to first anki, wipe a monster, search mask change, then change into another anki for massive push or even game.

This monster only works for D-Heros(vision heros too) because masked change tribute a hero and special summon a masked hero with the same attribute that the hero tributed, and E-Heros only necroshade is dark attribute.

Pfft, you're so, so wrong. Necroshade isn't the only DARK Elemental HERO available. There's also Elemental HERO Dark Neos. Geez, guys, you're such noobs. ;p (Technically if you were desperate you could also give the opponent a HERO with something like Give and Take or Mystic Box and copy it with Neo-Spacian Dark Panther. Think of the totally super-sweet combo potential right there!11)

My Kiseitai deck is like 80% consistant, but doing 60k ATK Ra is just to good to throw away...
Bought all cards on card trader x3, what to do now?
Seriously?? For one Restructer Revolution to kill the oponent, you would need him to have 20 car...
