Target 1 "HERO" monster you control; send it to the Graveyard, also, after that, if it left the field by this effect, Special Summon 1 "Masked HERO" monster from your Extra Deck with the same Attribute that the sent monster had when it was on the field (its original Attribute, if face-down).

Evaluation

RatingA-

Pros

  • Great way to summon a powerful monster.
  • Being a Quick-play spell gives you lots of timings to activate this card.

Cons

  • Requires a Hero monster on the field to activate, otherwise a dead card in your hand.
  • A Hero can only change into a Masked Hero of the same attribute.

Tips

Anki OTK

(This OTK is only possible because of a bug that doesn't half Anki's attack when he attacks directly with his effect and Titan Showdown is active.)
Use Cosmic Cyclone to banish a spell/trap card and reduce your LP to make Titan Showdown active, then used masked change to special summon Masked HERO - Anki. Anki is able to attack your opponent directly and because of Titan Showdown he will deal 5600 damage. If your opponent does not control any spell/trap card for you to use Cosmic Cyclone on, you can turn on self-chain. First activate Masked Change on your HERO and then use Cosmic Cyclone on Masked Change, you will still be able to summon Anki with your LP reduced for Titan Showdown.

Extra attacks

You can use Masked Change on an Extra deck Masked Hero you control to special summon another copy of himself from the Extra deck. Use this during the battle phase to gain extra attacks. Masked Hero Anki can do this most efficiently. Attack with your DARK Hero monster, activate Masked Change to special summon Masked Hero Anki and then let Anki destroy a monster. Anki will let you search a Masked Change from your deck, which you can use on him to special summon another Anki ready to attack. Repeat till your opponent runs out of monster.

Masked Hero

Here is a list of masked hero monsters that can be summoned with Masked Change.

Multiple monsters

Drilldark lets you special summon another monster when it's summoned, this can let you use Mask Change on one of them without leaving your vulnerable to cards like Enemy Controller. Use Drilldark's effect to special summon Destiny HERO - Celestial so you can use its effect when it's in the graveyard. Vyon can also be pretty good since you can use its effect to send Destiny HERO - Malicious from your deck to the grave, then activate it from the grave to special summon another Malicious from your deck, which thins your deck as well as letting you use Mask Change using your deck as a resource.

Return from the graveyard

Decider's effect lets you return a Destiny HERO monster from your grave at the end of the turn. This can let you use Mask Change on him after he attacks to return Decider back to your hand at the end of your turn.

The fact that is says once per turn instantly makes it way more balanced.

If balance then nobody bought it

We only have a dark, water and fire masked hero, so hero cards that are wind, light and earth arent supported

Screw that. I want to see the meta break down with Dark Law.

I feel like we might get Dian eventually. (I'm actually surprised we got Anki before it.) Divine Wind would be interesting. It's better than the three we currently have, but you'd have to use Avian since there's literally 2 non-Fusion WIND Heroes. (The other being Stratos, who I doubt will ever be player-obtainable.)

Do you think prisma will ever come?

The only masked heroes i think would be too powerful are acid, dark law, and koga (blast might be a bit too much, but at least he has low stats and reliance on avian). I could see the other ones getting added to the game at some point.

Limit this card, Konami.

No, because it will kill any other Masked Hero deck...

Anki semi-limited to 2 would solve the problem. If you can deal with the 1st Anki then you're guaranteed safe from OTK and you'll have a bigger chance to make a comeback

Limiting this card is fine as long as they give us Mask Change II in exchange.

The fact that this card is NOT limited, BUT silent sword slash is limited is absolute HORSE URINE. sick of this nonsense

What is the point of limiting it?
There is also a card that allows you to play it up to 3 times from the graveyard.

They won't semi-limit this card because it will affect other Masked Heroes too, especially considering we'll have Dian in main/mini box in the future.

If they would limit something from the Anki deck, it will be either Decider/Drilldark, or Anki itself.

This crap or Anki should be once per turn...

Well, anki's effect IS once per turn though.

So I can not chain and use my second floodgate trap hole after changing the mask? (no option for it) I hate Anki decks with passion, tier 2 lol
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
the reason is that u miss the timing to use floodgate. Cause u can't activate cards in a middle of a chain so first is summon then is the effect of ur first floodgate
<< Anonymous(Anonymous)

I think you are trying to chain Floodgate to Mask Change?

You cannot do that, Floodgate can only respond to a summon, and using Mask Change is not a summon. You have to wait until Anki hits the field THEN you should be able to use Floodgate.

Same. I’ve opened at least 100 by now and I’ve gotten every masked hero twice at least but not a single “masked change” spell.

This card is broken...10/10 times I play against Anki decks they start with at least 1 of this card. How is it possible? BS draw luck

Well....last night I played against an Anki deck user who didn't draw any Mask Change in his first 3 turns. I defeated him easily.

But yeah, that was such a rarity.

I use balance, so among the 6 spells I run in my deck, there should be a 25-50% chance I get it in my starting hand.

Would my Anki be destroyed if I chained Mask Change to Widespread Ruin? For example, I have 2 monsters then my opponent use Widespread then I chained Mask Change.
<< Anonymous

Yes, as Widespread Ruin doesn't target.
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
The fact it doesn't target doesn't in itself make it go after something else. A card like Floodgate Trap Hole doesn't target, either, and only goes after a specific card. But in this case, Widespread Ruin doesn't even "pick" until it resolves. Aside from them requiring an Attack Position monster to legally activate it, what they have at that time has no bearing on what will be destroyed.

Why isn't possible to chain "Wall of Disruption" with this card? Example: The opponent attacks, I skip "Wall of Disruption" activation, then he uses "Mask Change". After its activation, the game doesn't ask me if I want to activate "Wall of Disruption".

u cant activate wod during damage step, the one time they ask u to activate wod is the only moment u can.

Sorry, I wrote chain but I meant after "Mask Change" activation, specifically when the Mask Monster declares an attack.

If dark law will ever be added, it will become a tier 0 deck

More like anti-meta since most meta decks right now rely greatly on graveyard

This is one of those cards that are made for people who lack a pair of danglers
