Strengths

  • Contains aggressive and powerful monsters. Both the Main Deck and Extra Deck monsters have great effects and respectable stats, making it hard to fight against from just battling.
  • Engaging and strategic gameplay. Masked HEROs provide a variety of options for players to branch out depending on the situation, making the deck very hard to predict.
  • Good chance to OTK your opponent. The various effects of the Masked HEROs can clear the field enough to launch a lethal attack that can go over 4000 LP easily.

Deck Concept

A Masked HEROs Deck consists of several HERO monsters in the Main Deck, whose primary purpose is to continuously summon and search cards that allow you to bring out your Fusion Monsters from the Extra Deck. These Fusion Monsters can inflict devastating blows to your opponent, quickly taking them down in as few turns as possible.

Card Alternatives

Reasons for Card Alternatives:
  • Vision HERO Poisoner can half the ATK of a monster whe you turn it into a Continuous Trap via its effect, and can be special summoned back to the field to use either Change card.
  • Hey, Trunade! clears out the back row into your opponent's hand, which can effectly clear anything that can stop an attack, or even an OTK.
  • Because the Masked HEROs primarily use Spell Cards in their Deck, Treacherous Trap Hole can be a viable option to destroy monsters on the field that are threats to the Masked HEROs.
  • Equip Spells are normally not viable, but Favorite Hero can boost a HERO's attack based on the enemy mosnter's DEF, offers protection, and can activate a Field Spell as soon as the Battle Phase starts.
  • While the deck does not primarily use Level 3 monsters, Wind-Up Zenmaines can avoid being destroyed by battle, and destroy a card on the same turn if the first effect is activated.

6. Banish a HERO monster from your Graveyard to add Polymerization to your hand.
7. Fusion Summon Vision HERO Trinty by using monsters you do not need as Fusion Materials.

Counters for Masked HEROs

Weaknesses

  • Requires several Fusion monsters. Any hindrance against Fusion Summons--and Special Summons in general--can severely weaken the deck's strength.
  • The Deck is not always consistent. Bad hands and bad draws will definitely result to a slow start, and may cost the Duel.
  • Best used in quick Duels. The longer the Duel goes, the more chances the opponent can deal with the Masked HEROs' constant swapping and summoning.

Block their Extra Deck

Masked HEROs Decks are heavily reliant on their Fusion Monsters. You can easily gain the advantage by preventing the other player from accessing their Extra Deck or negating their Polymerization and Change cards.

Prolong the Duel

The strategy of Masked HEROs Decks benefits from short and quick Duels. The longer the Duel lasts, the more chances your opponent gets to turn things around and win. This counter-strategy is best performed with Decks that can handle or benefit from longer Duels.
