Heroes were one of the most explosive decks of the previous format, but they were quickly overshadowed in most metagames by SPYRAL and Lunalight Orcusts. Now, with some of their biggest competition out of the way and almost nothing lost to the F&L List, Sam's got a brand-new deck list and a full profile to get you up to speed.

 

What impact does Destiny HERO - Malicious moving to 2-per-deck have on the strategy? What are the deck's most important moves going first and going second? Find out, and see how the deck can adapt to keep your opponent on lock with Masked HERO Dark Law in today's featured video.

 

 

If you want to build the deck yourself, you can find the entire deck list and grab the cards you need below. But make sure to watch the video to find out how to run it, as Sam goes combo by combo to show you the biggest plays.
