Since their introduction in the Yu-Gi-Oh GX era, Elemental Heroes have managed to compete against a myriad of opponents with an incredible toolbox of cards. One of the most important ways that the Hero tribe has continued to evolve is through the introduction of Hero off-shoots like Vision HERO Faris and Masked HERO Dark Law. In today's video, Sam puts all the pieces together to show off one of the strongest Hero decks in the current format.

The deck makes use of an all-star HERO cast leading into Elemental HERO Grandmerge for massive plays. Curious about how it wins? Check out the video to see how Sam sets up the ultimate HERO OTK!

It's easy to see why so many players gravitate towards the HERO theme. With key cards from everyone's childhood still at the forefront in 2020, playing HERO is a big nostalgia trip that can still take you to the top tables. In 2020, there are few things better than attacking for game with a 5100 ATK Elemental HERO Flame Wingman.
