Gokai Change! Mask HERO!

With some of the new promo cards announced over in Japan, it was curious to see some new HERO support, but even better seeing as how they were Masked HERO monsters. Now, I'm a very big fan of Masked HERO monsters, especially since they remind me a lot of the Super Sentai (great stuff).

But all Sentai stuff aside, these two new heroes pack quite a punch and will take the deck to an even bigger level.

First up, we have Masked HERO Acid:

Must be Special Summoned with "Mask Change", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. When this card is Special Summoned: Destroy all Spell/Trap Cards your opponent controls, and all face-up monsters your opponent currently controls lose 300ATK.
Acid packs quite a punch! Combine this with Absolute Zero and you have a complete field clearing combo. Zero takes care of the monsters and then Mask Change into Acid and turn it into a Harpie's Feather Duster with legs! And if you don't do it with Zero, then there's still the ATK reducing effect that can come quite in handy. Back row clearing is definitely it's best attribute, as is it's Water attribute.

All in all, Acid is a great card to have in any HERO deck. And it also combines well with the next card...Masked Hero Daian.

Must be Special Summoned with "Mask Change", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. When this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower "HERO" monster from yourDeck.
Daian is the recruiter of the deck. Imagine using this to search for Voltic, who in turn can search for any banished HERO for extra damage. Perhaps you want to bring Stratos for an even bigger plus. Bring another HERO from the deck and then use Mask Change on that one for yet another beater. This card opens so many plays that it's not even funny. Indeed yet another great addition to the Extra Deck for HERO decks.

So whether it's Acid or Daian, these new Masked HERO cards are definitely worth running. Time will only tell if we get Wind, Light and Dark attributes as well. But for now, these will do more than well. I can't wait to use these guys and test them out!
