From Zero to Hero
 April 13, 2010

I'm Kick-Ass!
 
Everybody loves a hero. Every movie has a hero, and it is a very large part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! game, thanks to Jaden and friends and all of their Elemental, Destiny and Evil Hero cards. Most of these actually pretty good cards got translated intot he card game, and of course the big bruiser of the bunch so far is Absolute Zero. The standard Absolute Zero deck uses Destiny Heroes as well as a scattering of WATER monsters in order to get out Zero. The deck is flawed, relying on the out of date and limiting Destiny Hero engine.
 
What nobody ever really considered was the fact that Zero can be brought out with Evil Heroes as well, and that opens up a whole new funbox of opportunities. The Evil Hero cards are faster and arguably more versatile than the old school Destiny Heroes, although there are far less of them. The stars include Evil Hero Infernal Gainer, Evil Hero Infernal Prodigy and Evil Hero Malicious Edge. We can combine these cards with some good WATER and EARTH monsters and suddenly we can fuse for Elemental Hero Gaia (possibly) and Evil Hero Dark Gaia.
 
The deck at this point is highly unstable, prone to bad draws and can really take a beating from Royal Oppression, but the deck is so much fun that i simply cannot wait until it is perfected to show you all. This is my take on the New Hero deck!

Hear the Call
 
The deck is very straightforward. You fuse into hero monsters and beat face. Heavy Storm, Mystical Space Typhoon, Dust Tornado and Trap Stun are the cards that get this done, stopping an opponent's defense before it can even begin to be a problem for Zero or Evil Hero Dark Gaia.

Miracle Fusion fuses to make Absolute Zero or E-Hero Gaia, which will be the main cards in the deck. Dark Calling allows access to Malicious Fiend and Evil Hero Dark Gaia. Either way, you can do some serious damage with these heroes, especially since Dark Gaia can get to a whopping 4700 without breaking a sweat.
 
Add to the fray Infernal Gainer, and suddenly you have a 4700 ATK monster that can attack TWICE. or a 2600 Piercer that can attack TWICE. This is huge in the game, as double threats of say a Monarch and Stardust Dragon are common plays nowadays. He also has 1600 ATK and acts as an EARTH monster for Gigantes and E-Hero Gaia.
 
Infernal Prodigy is no Cyber Dragon, but searchable Special Summons are hard to find, and an opening play of Special Summoning him and then dropping Diva or Edge can put a lot of pressure on your opponent way early, ofrcing them to waste their removal on these lesser threats while you bid your time for a swarm of Hero Summons.
 
Malicious Edge is a very good card. An EARTH for E-Hero Gaia and Gigantes, and Hero for Zero and Dark Gaia makes him as versatile in the deck as Infernal Gainer as well as having the added bonus of being a threat on his own. He also fuses with his other copy for Malicious Fiend, not the best Hero in the book, but no slouch.
 
The rest of the cards in the deck allow you to get your heroes to the field whil making those cards threats as well. Hand Destruction works well to get the materials to the graveyard in a pinch and Juju Master stops Gladiators cold.
 
The one deck that this one cannot win against is Gravekeepers. They plop a Necrovalley onto the Field and youa re in some serious trouble, hence the use of Dust Tornado instead of Royal Decree.
 
Well, I am pretty tired now, so it is going to be a short article. As you know, you can always contact me at raptor1k@hotmail.com for advice, questions or ideas. Please put YGO in the title of your email so I do not throw it out.
 
Thanks for Reading!
