Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Destiny HERO – Celestial is one of the more useful Destiny HERO support cards that has come out in some time.
 
A great Level 4, with all the support traditional D-HERO monsters have behind it, 1600ATK is pretty good. The ability to destroy a face-up spell your opponent has is a two-punch combo that you could use each turn. Pendulum monsters and Continuous spells are toast if this card gets in some direct attacks, and if the opponent doesn't have an answer for Celestial they won't be playing any of those cards face-up.
 
Even in the grave Celestial remains useful. Banish it and another D-HERO to draw 2 cards. Destiny Hero Malicious with removing itself combined with the benefit of Disk Commander's draw ability. You can bring Celestial back with a card effect and banish it again to get more cards the very next turn. Destiny Heroes lost some support with the limiting of RoTA and haven't had anything like Disk Commander in monster form since it was banned. The “no cards in your hand” restriction isn't even that big of a restriction. Set everything and then activate the effect, or summon your only monster and then benefit from Celestial. If you are bogged down by monsters you at the very least have a contingency option in the grave.
 
This is a huge boost to D-HEROS and any deck that would work them into their strategy. Lightsworn/D-Hero, Zombie/D-Hero, LaDD potentially, anything and everything that wants to main some Destiny Hero monsters now have a new target they don't even need to summon to have it be effective.

Destiny Hero - Celestial is a Level 4 Dark Warrior-type monster with 1600 Atk and 1400 Def. The stats are ok for Level 4, but there is and there always will be a ton of support for Hero monsters. The first effect targets one opponent's face-up Spell card for destruction and then burns them for 500 LP. All Celestial needs to do is declare an attack. This can happen more than once if Celestial gains a multi attack effect. Even sacrificing this card to attack a stronger monster might be worth it to destroy a Spell Card and burn for 500 LP.
 
The second effect activates from the grave the turn after Celestial was sent there. It banishes itself and another Destiny Hero monster to draw 2 cards once per turn. You do have to have no cards in your hand to even activate the effect, but Elemental Hero Bubbleman usually makes it so there are no cards in the hand. Two good effects that can be used in Hero or other decks simply by splashing 3 copies of Destiny Hero - Celestial make this card really good. 
 
Score: 4/5

Destiny HERO – Celestial
 
I really feel like D-Heroes are the theme that could one day make the most out of Pot of Acquisitiveness, Friday’s card of the day. Along with Malicious, Destiny HERO – Celestial seems to have that perfect harmony where you really want to put it back in the deck to reuse it.
 
I love this card, and it singlehandedly makes me wish D-Heroes could be could again. There’s just so many uses, especially in an era where pendulum decks are still very good. With an above-modest attack power, the ability to pop any spel/trap, some bonus effect damage, the ability to cycle two spent cards into two new cards, and the great main attraction of being a target for Mask Change, there’s so much to love. Even if you were to never use his first effect, the fact that he can go into Dark Law and then banish both himself and another D-HERO later for two cards can’t be underestimated. He’s made in the vein of Disc Commander, the most broken card ever made.
 
So the question to really ask is, “Will D-Heroes ever come back?” And that’s a hard one to answer. It’s a fan favorite, to be sure, and it’s received a ton of support over the years, but it’s not the theme of one of the main protagonists of any of the anime spin-offs. The reason we’re getting new D-HERO cards is because Edo Phoenix was brought back in Arc-V, which is ending. And even if they do revive D-Heroes, will they get enough support to be relevant? That may not be as important a question, because any more support would be good enough, most likely. And I say that because Celestial is that busted. Being a dark warrior (and thus easily dumpable) and drawing 2 cards without any cost to your current resources is just outrageous. This is one awesome hero.
 
Advanced: 4/5
Future Potential: 5/5
