Destiny Hero -- Dogma
This guy can lead some very unconventional burn
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.
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.
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.

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
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:
Messenger of Peace
Level Limit – Area
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
Traditional: 1/5 (Burn decks don’t
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.
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.
"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.
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.
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.
