Appropriately, at least in my opinion, this card is
the second best card in the set, and the best XYZ
Monster. Heroic Champion-Excalibur is a beast.
This guy clearly should be a Machine, just putting
that out there, but we have a Rank 4, Light
attributed, Warrior type Monster, with 2000 attack
and defense. By discarding an XYZ Material from
Excalibur, his attack is doubled to a whopping 4000.
Now, if that weren't awesome enough, it doesn't
last until the End of your turn, but until the End
of your opponent's next turn. How beautiful is
that? Heroic Champion-Excalibur will end many a
game my friends. He's great support for his
Archytpe, and equally good, if not better, outside
of his own Deck.
We are down to the last two cards so you know
they must be good. Today’s card is one of those
cards that I would rate as a staple extra deck card
for a Warrior deck. With two simple level 4 warrior
monsters, you can Xyz summon Heroic Champion –
Excalibur and attack for at least 4000 points of
damage or get over that huge monster your opponent
controls. I know what you are thinking. Yes, but we
already have Blade Armor Ninja which can attack for
4400 in damage. By all means, keep that monster in
your extra deck, but make sure you add this one as
well; because Excalibur can do things that the Ninja
If your opponent has a boss monster out with over
2200 attack, Excalibur is your answer. If your
opponent has 4000 or less life points with no cards
on the field and at least one card in hand,
Excalibur is the card to attack with as Blade Armor
Ninja’s first attack may just hit a Gorz and ruin
your whole day. If you have a Miracle Fusion in your
hand and need both of your monsters on the field to
summon say Elemental HERO the Shinning for a total
of 7200 in damage then you need Excalibur to ditch
both of them to the graveyard. If your opponent has
no monsters or answers then an additional Bubbleman
would mean game.
Let’s take a look at the Heroic archetype real
quick. All of the Xyz monsters are called Champion
while the effect monsters are called Challenger.
There is a monster called Heroic Challenger – Double
Lance that can summon another Double Lance from the
hand or Graveyard making it easy to summon
Excalibur. The Heroic theme is all about power-ups
and it has a card called Heroic Chance that doubles
the attack of your Heroic Champion – Excalibur to
8000 attack. Can anyone say “GG”? By the way, Heroic
Champion – Excalibur is also a light monster so if
your opponent has a monster in attack mode, a well
played Honest will make you a pro. Yes really, trust
me on this.
If you are playing a Warrior themed deck like
Heroic, X-Saber, Six Samurai, and Elemental HERO’s,
then you will definitely want to make room a Heroic
Champion – Excalibur.
Chopping his way to #2 on our list is Heroic
Champion - Excalibur. This guy may not look like
much with him being a Rank 4 Xyz monster, needing 2
level 4 Warrior type monsters and stats of 2000 ATK
and DEF, his effect has OTK written all over him and
Once per turn, you can detach 2 Xyz materials
from this card: This card's ATK becomes double it's
original ATK until your opponent's next end phase.
Getting him on the field is rather easy. In a Six
Samurai build, you can get Excalibur out on your
first turn if you tried. Rescue Rabbit can get you
two normal Warrior-Type monsters. Even Ninjas and
Photons decks can use Excalibur as well. Now for his
effect, being 2000 ATK and DEF off the bat is pretty
good. But Excalibur can double his attack to 4000
when you remove 2 Xyz materials from it. That can
usually end a game right there if it attacks
directly. But you can use other cards like Honest to
really lay in the damage after raising his ATK. If
your opponent manages to survive all that, you can
use cards like Overlay Regen and Spirit Converter to
get 2 more Xyz materials back on Excalibur to do it
over again. This guy can and will end games real
quick if he hits the field.
Tomorrow: X = our number 1 card.
Heroic Champion Excalibur
My personal favorite card in the set. I love
warriors, and this will be very welcome to my
Samurais/elemental heros/destiny heros and more will
benefit from this. Easy to summon card, and can be
4k attack allowing you to take any monster down or
hit for game? You are going to run this card if you
can make it, staple
