ExMinion OfDarkness
D-Hero Dreadmaster

This is the D-Hero's big hitter, and it has three effects we can look at.

The first requires it to have come out through Clock Tower Prison, which is insanely difficult as it requires CTP to stay out through four of your opponent's turns in order to activate. If you manage to pull that off, you nuke your non-D-Hero monsters and Special Summon 2 D-Heroes from your Graveyard. It's a wannabe Return swarm.

The second effect occurs either through CTP OR if you Special Summoned it through Premature or Call; you have a built-in Waboku for battles involving your D-Heroes, and D-Heroes can't be destroyed that turn (so no Saku/Mirror Force).

His ATK is only as good as the ATK of all the D-Heroes you have out, so you have to go full-blown D-Hero to actually get any use of it, lest you want it to be stuck with an ATK that can be taken out by a Cyber Dragon.

There are reasons to play Destiny Hero monsters -- this ain't one of 'em. Heck, you can probably trade this for a complete copy of Vincent Tundo's Nationals deck (the Blasting the Ruins/Life Equalizer first turn kill.)

1/5 all
 

Dark Paladin
Today we're looking at another D-Hero, supposedly the big daddy of them all, Destiny Hero Dreadmaster. Is this guy all he's cracked up to be, we'll see. Like with our other D-Hero card this week, below I have posted the rulings on this card from UDE website.

“Destiny Hero – Dreadmaster’s” second sentence is applied if he is Special Summoned by any method, not just by the effect of “Clock Tower Prison”.

(Insert: Second sentence is: Then you can Special Summon up to 2 monsters from your Graveyard whose name includes Destiny Hero)

“Destiny Hero – Dreadmaster’s” first effect (to destroy your non-“Destiny Hero” monsters and Special Summon 2 “Destiny Hero”
monsters) is a Trigger Effect and his other effects are Continuous Effects.

Destroying all your non-“Destiny Hero” monsters and Special Summoning 2 “Destiny Hero” monsters is resolved in the same chain link. Even if you have no monsters that will be destroyed you still get to Special Summon
2 “Destiny Hero” monsters.

If “Royal Oppression” is face-up on the field you can activate its effect to negate the Special Summon of “Destiny Hero – Dreadmaster”
when he is Special Summoned by the effect of “Clock Tower Prison”. If your “Royal Oppression” is face-down when “Clock Tower Prison” is destroyed, you can chain its activation (flipping it face-up) to the effect of “Clock Tower Prison”. “Royal Oppression” will resolve first, and be face-up when “Destiny Hero – Dreadmaster” is Special Summoned, and then you can activate its the effect of “Royal Oppression” when “Destiny Hero – Dreadmaster” is Special Summoned in order to negate the Special Summon.

So, how do you determine Dreadmasters attack and defense? When in battle, you combine the attack and defense of all Destiny Hero monsters attack and defense, so he has potential for some high numbers.

Ratings:

3.95/5 D-Hero He is a bit hard to play, and you need Clock Tower Prison, but will be hard to get rid of when you get him to the field.

Art: 4.5/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

004 DESTINY HERO - DREADMASTER
(ULTRA RARE) ATK - ? DEF - ? DARK 8* WARRIOR

(EFFECT) - IF THIS CARD WAS SPECIAL SUMMONED BY THE EFFECT OF "CLOCK TOWER PRISON", DESTROY ALL MONSTERS ON YOUR SIDE OF THE FIELD EXCEPT THE ONES THAT INCLUDE "DESTINY HERO" IN THEIR CARD NAMES, THEN YOU CAN SPECIAL SUMMON UP TO 2 MONSTERS FROM YOUR GRAVEYARD THAT INCLUDE "DESTINY HERO"
IN THEIR CARD NAMES. DURING THE TURN THIS CARD IS SPECIAL SUMMONED, MONSTERS ON YOUR SIDE OF THE FIELD THAT INCLUDE "DESTINY HERO" IN THEIR CARD NAMES CANNOT BE DESTROYED, AND ALL BATTLE DAMAGE INFLICTED TO THE CONTROLLER OF THIS CARD BECOMES 0 DURING BATTLE INVOLVING MONSTERS ON YOUR SIDE OF THE FIELD, THAT INCLUDE "DESTINY HERO" IN THEIR CARD NAME.
THE ATK AND DEF OF THIS CARD ARE EQUAL TO THE COMBINED ORIGINAL ATK OF ALL MONSTERS ON YOUR SIDE OF THE FIELD (EXCEPT THIS CARD), THAT INCLUDE "DESTINY HERO" IN THEIR CARD NAMES.

Well, this card is extremely situational. Basically you’ll have to have a full field of D heroes to utilize the full potential of this card. If drawn early game, it’s pretty much a dead draw. If you want him to hit the field for free, you have to use clock tower prison, and even then, clock tower will have to stay out for 4 turns, which can be a hard thing to do. I don’t even really see a purpose in running this card in a D hero deck, because after all that time you’ve wasted getting this card out, your opponent will have most likely come up with a new strategy, and will most likely get rid of your d.m. next turn. Highly situational, and not even good for a D hero deck in my opinion….

All formats: 1/5

D Hero Dreadmaster

Ohh good god. Now there’s a long effect. A friend of mine recently got one of these.

To be honest, I don’t like it. it’s a bit long winded of a thing to do, I mean that Clock just sucks, and I don’t like the summoning method, but I do like the special summoning and effect otherwise. I also like the immunity he grants himself, among others. I’m sitting on the fence for this one, I can’t really pretend to have my head completely round this thing. I’ll just leave you guessing and give him a rating based on his attack score. (why oh why couldn’t I do that for Blue eyes white dragon?)

Rating : ???
