Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer's the single most hyped card from Burst of Destiny.

We've seen it warp competition in the OCG; everyone just splashes Fusion Destiny and two HERO monsters to splash it into a variety of decks, dominating the field with renewable disruption and a big, recurring body. It's super easy to summon, it's massively powerful, and today we're going to look at everything you can do to get the most value out of it.

Let's Break Down What It Does

Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer has a Continuous Effect that lowers all of your opponent's monsters by 200 ATK for each HERO card you have in your Graveyard. It gets really nasty in a pure HERO deck.

Its Quick Effect destroys a card you control, as well as any card on the field, potentially interrupting your opponent's plays. It's like a Spell Speed 2 Scrap Dragon that doesn't target, which is crazy.

You'll usually want to use that effect to destroy Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer itself, because when it's destroyed, you can activate its effect to Special Summon any Destiny HERO monster in your graveyard in the next Standby Phase, including Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer. You'll see a lot of players summon multiple boss monsters, then summon this card with Fusion Destiny, just to have that Quick Effect as another layer of disruption.

This card is so good, that at some point everybody has to ask themself, "Should I play the Fusion Destiny package in my deck?" And nine times out of ten, the answer will probably be yes! But only if you can answer yes to these questions beforehand…

If you said yes to all three questions, then you'll probably want to play Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer.

What's Included In The Fusion Destiny Package?

Good question. First of all, you can safely play up to three copies of Fusion Destiny. You can just play one if you'd rather not draw the card, but usually you don't mind since its restriction - after you resolve it - doesn't conflict with whatever else you're playing. If Fusion Destiny is your last summon for the turn its restriction doesn't matter since it doesn't restrict your actions prior to playing it. But Fusion Destiny still a possible one-of, because you can use Predaplant Verte Anaconda to copy its effect directly from the deck, just like the infamous Red-Eyes Fusion package with Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon.

Beyond that, you've gotta play Fusion Materials, and you can make Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer with any Level 6 or higher HERO monster, and any Level 4 or lower Destiny HERO. I'm not gonna list all the legal cards you could use, but I will give you a quick rundown of the best options.

Destiny Hero - Dasher

Destiny Hero - Celestial

The two most common options you'll probably see are Destiny HERO - Dasher and Destiny HERO - Celestial. Most players are calling these two the optimal choices, since both of their graveyard effects are pretty good, and unlike Destiny HERO - Malicious, you only need to play one of each.

Once per duel while Destiny HERO - Dasher in the graveyard, if you topdeck a monster, you can activate Destiny HERO - Dasher graveyard effect, reveal what you drew, and Special Summon it. Make sure you don't shuffle that card into your hand when you do this; you obviously need to be able to verify that it is indeed the card you drew!

Destiny HERO - Celestial also has a once-per-duel effect: when you have no cards in your hand, you can banish it along with another Destiny HERO to draw two cards! Few draw power and a boss monster with a disruptive Quick Effect all in one package is pretty good.

But that's not the only way to play Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer.

Destiny HERO - Malicious is infamously known for being an amazing free Level 6, provided you play multiple copies. It's limited to 2-per-deck right now, so you'll usually only activate its effect once to summon your second copy. But with the new Destiny Hero - Denier from Burst of Destiny, you can recycle the banished Destiny HERO - Malicious to Link climb even further!

You'll probably only see this duo in a more pure HERO deck, but I can see this package being really strong as a follow-up play for non-HERO decks too, as long as it's not the same turn you resolve Fusion Destiny (since it locks you into Dark HERO monsters specifically).

Those four cards are probably the strongest choices for Fusion Destiny, since they have amazing graveyard effects that make for great follow-up plays. But there are a few other niche picks you can try!

Destiny HERO - Drawhand can revive itself on the next Standby Phase after it's sent to your graveyard. And when it's summoned that way, or by a HERO effect, both players draw a card! That can be good if you just want a draw, but letting your opponent get one too? Well, that's why this is a niche pick and not as popular as the other options. But! If you just so happen to have Droll & Lock Bird, you can use it after you and your opponent draw with Destiny HERO - Drawhand, locking out any other search or draw cards for the rest of the turn.

Destiny HERO - Plasma is my favorite out of all of Aster Phoenix's ace monsters, and it's got some powerful abilities. If you draw it, you can Special Summon it by tributing any three monsters. From there it's great on the field since it's basically a one-sided Skill Drain. It can also take an opposing monster and equip it much like Relinquished does, for a possible attack buff!

I've seen some cool interactions with Destiny HERO - Plasma when it's played in a dedicated Hero deck, and you're up against other decks splashing Fusion Destiny. While both players have a Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer, it's a sort of standoff situation, since whoever uses their Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer effect last will always win the trade. But if the HERO player summons Destiny HERO - Plasma along with their Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer, then they're in a much stronger position than their opponent!

I think Plasma can be neat whether your deck can search for it or not. So if you can't play the more optimal Destiny Heroes that I've mentioned before, and you'd rather not play multiple cards like Destiny HERO - Malicious demands, you could try Destiny HERO - Plasma since it can be a good card to summon off a draw.

Destiny Hero - Disk Commander

Last but not least, Destiny Hero - Disk Commander was a fan favorite back in the day before it was ummm… banned… and of course, before its latest errata. Even though its "draw 2" effect is now limited to once per duel, I think it can still be viable if your deck has a lot of cards that can revive it.

For example, after you destroy your own Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer, you can use its effect to revive Destiny HERO - Disk Commander and draw two! Then, if you have something like World Legacy Succession or Monster Reborn, you can bring back the Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer afterwards. That's probably a stretch for most decks, but I can imagine that there could be a scenario where you may not be able to Special Summon the Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer with its own ability. In that case, having Destiny HERO - Disk Commander as an option could be good.

What Decks Play DPE The Best?

It's no secret, but Heroes are probably the deck that benefits the most from Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer. Heroes used to struggle to find any sort of strong set-up going first, but now their Fusion Destiny brings even more value to the deck than it did before. I've even seen players cut Fusion Destiny from past HERO lists, but now, with Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer legal, it's definitely a must have!

With the new Regionals season upon us, we've seen lots of players competing with Heroes. At a glance, Steinnman's list looks very well thought out. For instance he's opted to keep Destiny Hero - Dangerous in the Extra Deck, so that not only can Fusion Destiny summon out Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer, but he has other options as well.

Why would you want to summon Destiny Hero - Dangerous instead of Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer? Well, you can make Destiny Hero - Dangerous with any Destiny HERO monster and any Dark Effect Monster. That means if you didn't see Elemental HERO Stratos or Vision HERO Faris in your opening hand, you can still use Fusion Destiny to send Elemental HERO Shadow Mist to the graveyard to search for them and get something started.

Steinnman's list is so focused on consistency that he's even dropped the Evil Hero package, so that his opening hand has fewer bricks. Very optimal.

But of course, Heroes aren't the only deck that wants to play the Fusion Destiny package. There are plenty of strategies that can support it, and some have more synergy than others.

It's a new strategy, but Swordsoul's currently one of the best decks in the game. And while some players are opting to play the Tenyi version, there are others who have taken a page out of the OCG handbook and splashed in the Destiny Hero package instead.

Once you resolve your Swordsoul plays and make all of your Synchros, you can use Fusion Destiny to summon Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer and make your field even stronger.

But that said, there's actually some unique synergy between Swordsouls and Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer, specifically if you opened with Incredible Ecclesia, the Virtuous. If you activated Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer or it was sent to your graveyard this turn, you can trigger Incredible Ecclesia, the Virtuous effect in the End Phase to get it back to your hand for a follow-up.

210227 || 210229

Of course, plopping a big body and controlling the game with that destruction effect isn't the only use for Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer. In this era of Yu-Gi-Oh, the ability to destroy any kind of card on your opponent's turn will always mean that you can destroy Artifacts and trigger their effects. Out of all the Artifacts available, Artifact Scythe is every combo deck's worst nightmare, and unfortunately, Scythe ' easily searchable with a generic Link 2, Artifact Dagda.

How do you set it up? Well, you just need to make Artifact Dagda and then find a way to summon Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer, either activating Fusion Destiny or using another two monsters to make Predaplant Verte Anaconda to copy Fusion Destiny.

When you activate another card on the field, like the Fusion Destiny or Predaplant Verte Anaconda, you can chain Artifact Dagda effect to set Artifact Scythe if your opponent doesn't have a response. From there, you just use Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer's effect on the opponent's turn after they draw a card, destroying Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer and the Scythe. You'll Special Summon the Scythe and trigger its on-summon effect. From there the combo player has to have a Forbidden Chalice, Infinite Impermanence, or Forbidden Droplet to have even a chance to stop Scythe from resolving.

While that's the most generic way to search Artifact Scythe, it's even easier to do in some decks. Take Drytrons, for example: they have enough monsters to make Artifact Dagda, and sometimes they'll even search the Scythe off Cyber Angel Benten if it's the most efficient option. From there they can easily make Predaplant Verte Anaconda to finish the setup.

Here we have Mike Sanchez's local-winning Drytron list featuring the Scythe and Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer combo. This event was just a local, but this kind of list is something you're going to see in competitive environments moving forward.

Sanchez's deck features a lot of other neat tech choices, such as Zombie World and Necroworld Banshee, which you can send to the graveyard with Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal. This option's even more viable now, since not only is it a blowout against Tri-Brigades, but it's a beating for Floowandereeze, which are rising in popularity. Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal can also send the Token Collector if Sanchez gets to go first against Swordsouls.

What Does This All Mean?

The Artifact combo with Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer is very generic and very easy to play in almost any deck. I know it's trending in Phantom Knights, and I've even tried it in Dinosaurs. Whether you're a combo deck or a control-heavy trap deck, if you have the space and no restrictions? Go for it.

Is it better than Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon? In my opinion you can't even compare the two packages because they serve such different roles. Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon a boss monster that's really tough to beat, and it helps defend any card that can stop your opponent from winning. It can also destroy your opponent's board to help you go for the win.

On the other hand, the Fusion Destiny package gives you more card advantage over the course of a much longer game. Having a "draw 2" effect in your back pocket, and being able to destroy any card including spells or traps, every single turn, will chisel away your opponent's card economy very quickly. That said, once it's in the graveyard, it's very vulnerable to banishing effects.

Both of these cards aren't something a trap-heavy deck wants to deal with. After you set five cards, the Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer going to destroy one of them in the End Phase and then you'll lose another if Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer hits the field again on the next Standby. Right away, you're left with only three set cards. Meanwhile Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon putting you on a clock with its 3000 ATK and its immunity to targeting and destruction effects.

Long story short, you'll usually win games faster with Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon, while the Fusion Destiny package gives you a lot of card advantage across the long term. Will Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon be banned soon so that the TCG Advanced Format becomes a mirror of the OCG? Probably not, unless we have a sudden rise of tournament-winning decklists playing the Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon package.

I hope you all picked up your copiers of Fusion Destiny and prepared yourself to play Destiny HERO - Destroy Phoenix Enforcer in your combo deck, because it's definitely here to stay for a while. And be sure to activate Destiny HERO - Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer effect to Special Summon from the grave on the resolution of its destruction, because that IS when it triggers!
