Hero Beat in September 2011 list

August 26, 2011

Most people write off trap base decks in the September format, simply because of Heavy Storm and MST. There isn’t much difference with the formats before Heavy Storm is banned.

Back then it is normal for control decks to run 10-15 traps, e.g. Black Feather, Gladiator Beast, Hero Beat and D.D. Eatos. Most played 1x Starlight Road to protect the traps and board presence. Personally, I feel it is alright not to play Starlight Road. I just change the play style and do not set multiple traps and lose to Heavy Storm.

I thought of playing Hero Beat. Partly it is because I’ve most of the cards.

1x E.Hero Stratos
3x E.Hero Neos Alius

1x Dark Hole
3x Pot of Duality

3x Gemini Spark

1x Future Fusion

Trap: 10

1x Torrential Tribute
1x Trap Dustshoot
2x Solemn Warning
1x Solemn Judgment
2x Bottomless Traphole
1x Hero Blast
2x Dimensional Prison

Extra: 15

1x Elemental Hero Gaia
1x Elemental Hero Nova Master
1x Elemental Hero Great TORNADO
1x Elemental Hero Absolute Zero
2x Elemental Hero The Shining
2x Dark: Elemental Hero Escuridão
2x Number 39: Utopia
2x Steelswarm Roach
1x Gem Knight Pearl
1x Vylon Disigma
1x Stardust Dragon

First of all, I’ve not tested this deck. So it is just theorycraft.

Summoner Monk is a personal preference. It can set up a first turn No. 39 Utopia or Steelswarm Roach. By summoning E.Hero Stratos (and search for E.Hero Neos Alius), the exceed monster can be summoned without having a -1 card advantage. Another reason is that I’m just trying to squeeze in a Black Luster Soldier. I doubt a 4 stars tuner is a necessary inclusion.

Future fusion can be used to send Summoner Monk and E.Hero Neos Alius in grave, which can set up for Black Luster Soldier. Another reason to send Summoner Monk and not another monster is that it is more likely to be a dead draw than other monsters. Summoner Monk is restricted to 2 now, so it is possible to summon Vylon Disigma by special summoning another Summoner Monk through Summoner Monk.

MST isn’t played because of MST itself. Most of the time I will have one to two set cards, which means opponent will chain his MST on my set cards if I use MST on his set MST (very likely). MST should be in side deck though. Gemini Spark can be used as MST if needed to. (Actually I just want to squeeze out the space for other cards >_<)

I’m not sure about Hero Blast. I suppose it depends on match up.

Stardust Dragon is in the extra deck because I plan to have Starlight Road in my side deck. Probably I will play 1 copy of Debunk in side deck.



  1. in extra deck, better than the vylon disigma = Shock Ruler

  2. My hero deck doesn’t run summon priest, but instead runs gale and zephyros. FF escuridao, bounce FF, then target absolute zero (i run snowman eater too). Also, I included a chevalier evocator for easier access to nova master (as well as being a dual). Gale also allows access to blackrose and armored wing (which, although situational, can combo with hero blast).

    unfortunately i don’t run duality (because i can’t really afford it). Using fragment of greed, and so far it has good results (as I notice most people rather use their MST/breaker on my other set cards most of the time)
