Mask Change, some of the new Hero support out there, and I'm just not impressed.  I feel like normal Hero Fusion using any tactic from before is better than this.  The Quickplay aspect is nice, I'll give it that.  So you sacrifice this card, and the Hero of your choice, to summon it's Mask counterpart, of the same Attribute as the selected sacrificed Hero.  There isn't much to say.  If you're playing the Mask set, you use this.  It just seems like a waste of resources to me.
 
Ratings:
 
No rating, as specified, you only use it to do one thing, and in one Deck.  Or you don't use it at all.

Art:  3/5

You're probably wondering, "What the #@%& is a Masked Hero?" Well, apparently they're used by Jaden late in the GX manga. Mask Change is the card used to summon Masked Heroes by transforming any Hero (Elemental, Destiny or Evil) into a Masked Hero from the extra deck. Being a quick-play spell is great, letting you dodge cards like Bottomless or D-Prison. All the rest is up to whatever Masked Heroes are available for us to summon.

3/5 -- Right now, it doesn't have many targets.
Art: Lame.
Fun Fact: Jaden's Heroes are all random vanillas, you know.
Tomorrow: The Masked Hero you want to summon.

Mask Change

Hero monsters get new support with Generation Force (as if they needed any more) in the form of the Masked HEROs and the Vision HEROs. Mask Change is the lynchpin for the Masked HEROs, swapping out a regular HERO with a Masked HERO with the same Attribute from your Extra Deck. Some of the Masked HEROs are good, others not so much. The fact that this is a Quick-Play helps it tremendously, being able to save your HERO in a pinch. It's a simple card and gets the new HERO Fusions moving. It obviously won't see play outside of HERO based decks.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5

Today’s card is Mask Change. Mask Change is kind of a hard card to rate since the card doesn’t really do too much. This card is used to bring out the Masked HEROs and that’s pretty much it. Now it does have a couple of pluses, first it is a quick play so it is chainable. So if your opponent targets one of your HEROs then you can activate this and they lose their target. Also you can use it during an opponent’s turn to surprise them with a much more powerful monster. It may not be the best card in the world, but it doesn’t really have a down side.

Mask Change

I’ve always been a fan of Heroes, but the new Masked Heroes aren’t really getting me excited. Mask Change is a -1 spell that you use to summon your Masked Heroes. A few were introduced in Generation Force, but none of them are particularly good. I don’t think I would ever want to lose advantage for a mediocre Hero fusion. I’ve seen a few players use it to combo with Absolute Zero (Activate Mask Change, sending Absolute Zero to the graveyard, to summon Masked Hero Vapor), but it doesn’t seem worth it. Mask Change is obviously necessary if you want to run Masked Heroes, but there are better cards to use in a Hero deck.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
