Supports ArchetypesHERO / Masked HERO


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).

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


  • 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.


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.

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.

Thank God for saving us from getting another piece of cancer on the ladder
This card should be limited
Mask Cancer, I do love seeing them manage to pull all of these out their ass while my modest and straightforward deck bricks.

Not to mention "what is this trap thing you're doing? Silly goose, MASK CHANGE!! Oh you had two? MASK CHANGE!! Mask change all the things."

"Modest and straightforward deck." That's a weird way to call normal monsters beatdown deck lol.
Should be limited. The fact that someone can open their hand with two copies and thus attack four to five times three of which with a 2800 attack monster on turn one is rediculous.
This is one of those cards that are made for people who lack a pair of danglers

Fr bro
one or two of this card in the first hand is very commom, it'ts so weird...
Feels like enemy Always has it in Hand with my yubel deck and used 3 on me last game omg I died round 2
This shit need to limit max 2 card
Changin mask to the same monster. Gr8 meta. Masked hero anki changed his mask... to masked hero anki. Omfg why cant limit this mask change or anki to maximum 2 card?! And yeah chaining to forbidden chalice negate his effect (halvin atk at dorect attack) but not negate the direct attack effect. WTF komoney?! Who ruled this?! Kys all fur hire and mask change players. Thank you!

There are two phases during an attack: The declaring attack and damage step. When something pass the declaring attack, it doesn't matter if there is a card effect played that negate that attack during damage step.
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.
