Welcome! Today we are reviewing a very cool
Heraldic Beast monster. I personally have played
with Heraldic Beasts and it’s actually a pretty good
deck if it’s built right. So let’s get down to one
of the key monsters of this archetype.
Heraldic Beast Leo
During the End Phase of the turn this card was
Normal Summoned: Destroy this card. When this card
is sent to the Graveyard: Add 1 "Heraldic Beast"
monster from your Deck to your hand, except
"Heraldic Beast Leo". You can only use this effect
of "Heraldic Beast Leo" once per turn.
This monster is easily the best monster to use in
a Heraldic deck. It is a 2000 attack beater that
destroys itself at the end of the turn that it’s
summoned. Now that destruction effect might seem
like a bad thing but afterwards you can search out
another Heraldic Beast monster from your deck. This
monster’s effect also resembles Dandylion because
Leo’s effect activates if it’s sent to the grave in
any way. This means you can even send Leo to the
grave as Xyz material and still get its effect. It
is a very good card that can be used in many
A great way to abuse this card and other Heraldic
Beast monsters like Aberconway and Twin-Headed Eagle
is to use them with a Lightsworn engine, like the
one used in Chaos Dragon decks. I’ve personally
tested out this engine and it can make the deck very
consistent and pretty fast. Lightsworns can help
trigger your monsters’ effects and make the Heraldic
monster revival cards live more often. And that’s
just one way you can build the deck. There are
plenty of other versions of Heraldic Beasts to
-This card is easily one of the best Heraldic Beast
cards. It is really good. The only thing that would
make this card better is if it could search out more
Leos or if its effect could be activated more than
once per turn.
-Heraldic Beast decks are probably too slow for this
format but it’s still not the worst card here.
-Very nice art. It couldn’t really look much better.
