Elemental Hero Nova Master, one of the better
Elemental Hero Fusion Monsters to come out in ages,
is a Level 8 Fusion, with 2600 attack, and 2100
defense, appropriately a Fire Monster, and a
Warrior. Nova Master is Fusion Summoned with an
Elemental Hero and a Fire Monster. Now, this card
can only be Fusion Summoned, and not Special
Summoned in another way, kinda of a drawback from
the beginning. For positives, when he destroys a
Monster, Nova Master lets you Draw a card. 2600
attack, while low enough for a Level 8, is strong
enough to hold its own, maybe even for a while, and
Drawing is always a good thing. I really feel this
is one of those cards that isn't bad, but not great
either...maybe waiting for a Deck or potential to be
broken open (not necessarily broken, however.)
3/5 for reasons listed above

Elemental Hero Nova Master is our next general
Elemental fusion--now we're just missing Wind and
Dark. You can make Absolute Zero with Ocean, Gaia
with Wildheart and The Shining with Neos Alius, but
who can you make Nova Master with? E-Hero Heat, or
Command Knight. There aren't many Fire monsters
you'd have in an Elemental Hero deck. But this at
least gives you more of a reason to use Heat. I use
him in my super consistent Hero deck, which focuses
on running lots of removal and just a few Heroes,
recycled with Ocean and Hero City.
2600 ATK is a little disappointing. The
ever-popular T G Rush Rhino beats this with Horn of
the Phantom Beast, and it's under the magic 2800. If
you're using cards like Burden of the Mighty,
though, it doesn't matter. Drawing a card for each
destroyed monster is a huge boost if you're using a
control-style deck, with Stratos and Righteous
Justice to clear the back row.
Nova Master really isn't the best Hero fusion.
Zero and Shining are much better in this
Trap-infested, TG-tastic metagame, and those two
Fusions can net more advantage, faster.

Fun Fact: I will not acknowledge the "HERO".
Tomorrow: I guess we're not done with Synchros.
HEROs, the new term for the Elemental, Destiny,
and Evil Heroes, get a big boost in Elemental HERO
Nova Master. This Fusion requires an Elemental HERO
and a Fire type monster. Its Effect is what makes it
so viable; if it destroys a monster by battle then
you draw 1 card. The monster does not even have to
go to the graveyard so tokens are fair game and
Dimensional Fissure/Macro Cosmos will not turn it
off. With 2600 attack this HERO is running over a
LOT of stuff in the format right now. Card advantage
is so important right now in the metagame that most
HERO duelist should at least run one. Guess it is
time to dig up those Evocator Chevaliers from
The 4th element out of 6 to be released for the
Elemental Heroes, Nova Master certainly doesn’t hold
anything back. Like his cousins, Nova Master
requires any Elemental Hero and another monster of
his attribute (Fire). Notable Fire monsters include:
Lonefire Blossom, Black Rose Dragon, Evocator
Chevalier, etc. I’ve seen a few decks run the Plant
engine in a Hero deck to cover Earth, Wind, and
Fire. I’ve also seen a few Miracle Gemini decks
running Chevalier to cover the Fire attrirbute. Both
are solid ideas and I will definitely test them
both. Anyway, Nova Master has solid attack and
defense and a pretty nice effect. Whenever he
destroys a monster by battle, draw 1 card. You
should note that he doesn’t have to send the monster
to the graveyard so if there’s something like
Dimensional Fissure on the field, it doesn’t affect
him. This card gives Heroes a bit of the speed
they’ve been lacking. He is probably the most
difficult to make, but his effect should make up for
it. I really like this card and every Hero deck
should consider it.
Elemental HERO Nova
Another Elemental HERO Fusion in the same line as
Gaia and Absolute Zero. This one is slightly harder
to make due to a lack of commonly used FIRE
Attribute monsters (Lonefire Blossom comes to mind,
but that's about it). Drawing a card whenever it
destroys a monster is really good, since it's
technically a +2, and 2600 attack isn't too shabby.
HERO decks get a boost with him nonetheless, as it
adds another powerful monster to their Extra Decks.
With Great Tornado on the horizon, Debris HERO decks
will probably become popular, combining the Plant
Engine (or what should be left of it) with the HERO
beatsticks for fun Extra Deck shenanigans.
Today, we take a look at a brand new Elemental
Hero card for the TCG.
It stands at a nice 2600ATK and a respectable
2100DEF. Also, whenever this card destroys a monster
by battle, you draw one card! Pretty nifty.
This card also comes in handy as another target
for Super Polymerization, being a FIRE attribute.
This also gives better synergy for gemini decks that
use Evocator Chevalier. This card is also needed for
the Future Fusion FTK/OTK deck, regardless of it's
consistency or lack thereof.
