Destiny Hero -- Dogma

This guy can lead some very unconventional burn decks.

For 3 Tributes (one of which must be a D-Hero), you get a 3400 ATK monster that automatically halves your opponent's Life Points. If you can protect him long enough to survive until your opponent's Standby (basically, don't attack into a Saku and hope your opponent doesn't have Ring or can't use it), then he halves your opponent's Life Points -- which is enough for most burn decks to finish off with their effects. I've heard others talking about Cold Wave (to make sure he survives) + a juiced up Wave-Motion Cannon counter, and that's one of the types of setups that will win games with this guy.

...so if you can work around how bad D-Heroes are on their own initially, there's hope for a good deck with the right combinations.

1/5 Traditional
2.25/5 Advanced

That sword looks nowhere near big enough to me to halve someone's life points.

A nomi 3400 requiring three tributes, including a DHero. That's a lot of set up for something with no protection from Torrential. The problem is, unless staring at a clear field, you don't want to attack with this guy on summoning as he has to stay alive to halve your opponent's LP, and in most cases, attacking directly actually does more damage than his effect. An interesting, but impractical monster.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5

Destiny hero Dogma

Wowza, that’s a GREAT card.

Huge attack AND defense, AWESOME art, and a game breaking effect. Easily the best D hero.

Dogma is the god of D heroes. 3400 attack, 3 sacrifices, and in need of a D hero in order to be summoned. In dedicated d Hero, sweet too. From the wording, you can tribute goat tokens too. Combo this with a cool D hero and you’re in for a huge summoning for a minimal cost. That’s cool.

The best part is that once you crush them with your 3400 then, at the beginning of their next turn, their lp is HALVED !! How cool is that? Especially with lp being so needed right now. A good card, and some great support all in all.

Traditional ; 3/5
Advanced : 4/5

Art ; 4/5
MPS : 5/5


Destiny Hero Dogma: POTD-EN014


Destiny Hero Dogma is an interesting monster. He requires 3 monsters as a Tribute to Special Summon him, 1 of which MUST have “Destiny Hero” in its name. The card ‘Scapegoat’ automatically comes to mind here. You CAN Tribute tokens for the Special Summon of this card as long as one of the 3 monsters you are Tributing is a Destiny Hero.


Besides his summoning requirement he has a pretty nasty effect when he is Special Summoned the right way: He slashes your opponent’s LP in half on the next Standby Phase! I think it would be kind of fun to make a deck around this guy. His Burn effect could spawn a nasty Burn/Stall deck that you can use with the following cards:

  • Stray Lambs
  • Scapegoat
  • Messenger of Peace
  • Level Limit – Area B
  • Gravity Bind
  • Des Koala
  • Secret Barrel
  • Etc…


His stats are pretty impressive as well: 3400ATK/2400DEF. Nice. It’s perfect with Messenger of Peace (since its Stall capabilities can be disabled at your discretion). Also, throw a couple of the smaller Destiny Hero monsters like Doom Lord and Captain Tenacious and you’ve got yourself a nice Burn subtype. (I choose Doom Lord and Tenacious because they have effects that benefit you while you are stalling, plus they fulfill the requirement for Dogma’s Special Summon.


Last Word: I like this guy’s effect, I love his stats. Tell you what…I’ll make a deck out of it.


Traditional: 1/5 (Burn decks don’t work here)

Advanced: 4/5 (I’ll be bold and give this guy a high score for his own deck).

This is power. Raw power.

I absolutely love this monster, his effect is killer (literally) and his stats, don't get me started.

YOWZA poeple, YOWZA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only draw back to this monster is his special summoning requires 3 monsters and one must be a D-Hero. Whoopy do, we got scapegoat, Soul Exchange, Brain Control, etc. to help out with that. Plus all of the D-Hero's are dark warriors. Let me think a bit........... Mystic Tomato, Last Will, Reinforcements of the Army, Sangan, etc.

His summoning requirements are not hard to meet and if they are met his stats reward you for your investment b/c he will kill something. 3400 attack is nothing to laugh at.

His other effect gives your opponent one turn to kill him before they lose half of their LP. A smart player will figure out ways to prevent that (My Body as a Shield, Cold Wave, etc.)

Absolutely devastating and one of the coolest pictures I have ever seen. Definitely one of the more playable hero monsters and definitely one of the most destructive.

4/5 in any deck capable of utilizing him.

Pure Evil.

"I activate Cold Wave, I summon Destiny Hero-Dogma, I attack you for 3400... Your LP are now at 4600. My turn? I attack you again for 3400. Your LP are now 1200. Your turn, LP stand me 8000 you 600. Ring of Destruction anyone? How about Ceasefire? Maybe you should just attack into my Magic Cylinder:P"

I love him.
Pippin Here we have a BEAST of a warrior. Special Summon only means good for you. Requires 3 tributes and one has be a D-Hero. Used in conjunction with Double Dude from yesterday, this should not be that hard especially since he is special summoned meaning you can summon a D-Hero then pop it for this guy along with 2 other monsters.

Atk 3400, 2400 def. There is nothing played today that will take this card down save a fusion (monster that is. It still chats up other graveyard fodder after being smacked with any of the NUMEROUS 1 for 1 out there.) Its second effect is never game ending, but it makes it DERN close.

HALF your opps LP during their next standby phase. Double yikes. This can do some serious damage, but it is never game ending, but hey, you have a 3400 atk winged beatstick on the field, you have more than enough to finish him/her next turn.

Bottom Line:
Traditional: 3/5 There are better cards in this format, but if you brave the chaos waters to groove yourself a D-Hero deck here, God go with you.
Advanced: 4/5 for D-Hero decks. With Double Dude this guy is not that hard to summon.
Art: 3.5/5 - Its what a love-child between Summon Skull and Baraka from Mortal Kombat 2 would look like. Still cool looking though.

Until Next Time, Anyone who isn't dead or from another plane of existence would do well to cover their ears right about now.
