Destiny Hero Dystopia

Again, I'm not seeing any common interconnected overarching theme with this archetype.  It burns some damage based on a DHERO in grave, but most LV4 and lower DHERO monsters aren't that strong to begin with.  Not bad for some situational late game burn I guess.  It destroys a card when its stats are altered, so now a DHERO deck needs some equip cards (or something) in addition to dozen other weird combos the deck is tasked with pulling off.  Nice stats I guess.  No easy ways to bring this card out as far as I know.  Mask Change II?  Meh, but Dark Law is better most of the time.

1.5/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Destiny HERO – Dystopia is the first fusion for the Destiny Hero archetype.
 
Any two Destiny HERO monsters is a great advantage to allow you access to this boss monster. Burn damage upon Special Summon is a nice touch. CoTD, Soul Charge, etc. will give you more chances to reuse the burn effect Dystopia has. Level 4 or lower Destiny HERO gives you several choices for targets. Diamond Dude immediately comes to mind. If you change Dystopia's ATK you can destroy a card once per turn, before returning its ATK to its original 2800. Either turn is great, and you can use both of Dystopia's effects once per turn, increasing your potential damage with this card. Summon, do burn damage, change the ATK somehow to then destroy a card.
 
D-HERO Dystopia is easy to summon, can be repeatedly summoned, rewards you for it each time, and has a new and unique effect revolving around ATK change. There are many ways to change the ATK of this monster, so its destruction effect shouldn't be a problem.

Destiny Hero - Dystopia is a Level 8 Dark Warrior-type Fusion Monster with 2800 Atk and 2400 Def. The stats are exactly what they should be. Even the requirement of any 2 Destiny Hero monsters for its Fusion Summon is not that bad. It also has two decent effects. But they can only be used once per turn. 
 
The first effect triggers when Destiny Hero - Dystopia is Special Summoned. You get to inflict damage equal to a targeted D Hero Monster's attack in the grave so long as it's Level 4 or lower. Currently that means at most 1600 Damage, but damage is damage. During either player's turn, Dystopia can change its attack back to its original attack if it has changed. You have to do that after successfully targeting to destroy any card on the field. Targeted destruction is problematic, but having an effect that triggers after they try to mess with Dystopia's Atk is good. I don't think it needs to be run at more than 2, but the first effect could turn a Polymerization into 1600 Burn Damage. Not bad for a beater that stays a beater.

Destiny HERO-Dystopia is a Dark, Level 8 Fusion, with 2800 attack and 2400 defense.  Fusion Summoned generically with two Destiny Hero Monsters.  So, if Special Summoned, you target a Level 4 Destiny Hero from your Graveyard and inflict Damage to your opponent equal to the attack of that Monster.  Free burn Damage is good, and it's not likely to be much (probably 1000 or so on the average) but could be more if you use something like Diamond Dude.  Also, during either player's turn, if this cards attack is different than its original attack, you can destroy one card on the Field.  Said card is targeted, always worth noting.  Then, Dystopia's attack returns to normal.  Dystopia isn't game breaking, but he's not awful either.  The 2800 is nice, a modest burn effect, and a not too difficult I suppose destruction effect.  There are better Fusions, but certainly worse ones too.
