Legacy of a HERO

 

Let me make this clear right off the bat: Legacy of a HERO is one of the stupidest cards ever printed. How is it that we have come to a point where there’s any justification for making a card that lets a player just draw 3 cards for no outrageous cost? We got people banishing 10 cards here and dropping their whole hand there, just to draw, but then this spell card comes along that acts as if Instant Fusion and Diamond Dude don’t exist.

 

That’s my long-winded intro for a card that is clearly bonkers. It’s not enough that dedicated non-masked hero decks can abuse this easily through its normal operations. The real kicker is the ways it can be utilized through the abnormal methods I mentioned above or others. Instant Fusion can bring out Steam Healer or Mariner, Diamond Dude can activate Legacy of a HERO without cost, and then there’s stuff like Gale Dogra (which I think is a mistake to run, but it still exists.) Whichever method you use, you’re likely to find success. This card is especially chilling in D-Hero decks, which already had a hoard of draw at their disposal and now have three new targets for Diamond Dude to bust. But now, instead of using Plaguespreader to put that Destiny Draw on top, why not draw three cards instead of two? And of course, being all dark types gives easy access to Mask Change as well as Predaplants, which lead to Instant Fusion, which leads to food for Legacy. It’s hooliganism I tell you! (Seriously, go check out Predaplant HERO decks… it’s so dumb.)

 

I like the idea of bringing back Heroes. They are a big mascot of the game to this day, and Konami gave us three excellent new cards to revive them (not to mention returning Stratos to 2 in the OCG), but unlike Honest Neos and Vyon, this spell card shouldn’t exist, and I am sure it will be abused one day. How can it not be? I don’t like it, but it’s obviously busted.

 

Advanced: 4/5

Future Potential: 5/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Legacy of A Hero is another draw power Spell Card for the HEROS we love.
 
Put two of your Fusion HERO monsters back into the Extra Deck to draw three cards. There aren't many downsides to this card. You get back your fusion targets and plus +2 off the draw, not to mention if you run this card you can afford to run one copy of certain Fusion HERO monsters and just keep recycling them. Leaving them in the grave does lend you Miracle Fusion fodder, but this card is too good to pass up. HERO decks fuse and this card wants to give them advantage all-around.
 
It's a Spell and you draw 3 from your deck for putting targets back in your Extra Deck, sounds like a win-win.
 
Advanced-4/5
Art-4/5 The first Fusion HERO we saw in the show, a worthy choice for the art.
 
Until Next Time

Legacy of a Hero, depending on how you look at this card, is either a break even (a 3 for 3) or you could view it as a +2.  You give up this card (and two Fusion Monsters from the Graveyard) to Draw 3 cards.  I side on the side of this being a +2, and appropriately, you can only use one of these a turn.  The Fusion Monsters return to the Extra Deck, which is helpful, and there's enough Draw involved to make this worthwhile.  Short and simple.
 
Rating:  4/5
Art:  4.5/5

Syn

Legacy of a HERO

Today's COTD is Legacy of a HERO. Probably the single best draw card for any archetype right now. Legacy returns 2 fusion monsters from the grave to the extra deck and you draw three cards.

There's no recycling of cards back into the main deck, and it draws a trio of new cards. No other draw power boasts that ability. The only real downsides are that it has a "once per turn" clause, the fusions need to list a HERO monster as material and it's a normal spell card.

The HERO monster can be generic, so fusion monsters like Vision HERO Trinity and Contrast HERO Chaos are eligible to be returned to the extra deck aswell.

Advanced 5/5 for HERO
