Question
Hi!

I've been thinking of making a Hero deck but there are just too many options, such as Elemental Heroes, Destiny Heroes, Evil Heroes, and the combo with rainbow dragon and neo-spacian. So what do you think is the best deck (pure elemental/destiny or combined) to build to compete in tournaments?

Please help me build one deck from scratch and I do not really have a budget. Thanks!

Answer
Pure Elemental Hero is the best of these by a long way at the moment, since the Majority of the decent Destiny Hero cards are either Banned or Limited...

Hero can be built in 2 ways currently:

Bubble-beat:

1 Elemental HERO Stratos
3 Elemental HERO Neos Alius
3 Elemental HERO Bubbleman
1 Photon Thrasher
(8)

3 Miracle Fusion
3 Gemini Spark
2 Pot of Duality
2 Mystical Space Typhoon
2 E - Emergency Call
1 Heavy Storm
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Book of Moon
1 Reinforcement of the Army
(17)

2 Solemn Warning
2 Torrential Tribute
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Dimensional Prison
2 Hero Blast
2 Fiendish Chain
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Starlight Road
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
(15)


Or Skill Drain Hero:

3 Thunder King Rai-Oh
3 Elemental HERO Neos Alius
2 Beast King Barbaros
1 Elemental HERO Stratos
1 Evocator Chevalier
(9)

3 Miracle Fusion
3 Gemini Spark
2 Pot of Duality
2 E - Emergency Call
1 Monster Reborn
1 Dark Hole
1 Book of Moon
1 Reinforcement of the Army
(14)

3 Skill Drain
2 Solemn Warning
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Torrential Tribute
2 Dimensional Prison
2 Hero Blast
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Starlight Road
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Mirror Force
(17)

Extra Deck for the 2 is essentially the same:

2 Elemental HERO the Shining
2 Elemental HERO Absolute Zero/1 E-HERO Gaia + 1 E-HERO Nova Master (Build dependent)
1 Elemental HERO Great Tornado
2 Blade Armor Ninja/1 Blade Armor Ninja + 1 Evigishki Merrowgeist (Build dependent)
1 Heroic Champion Excalibur
1 Number 39 - Utopia
1 Number 16 - Shock Master
1 Photon Papilloperative
1 Number 50 - Blackship of Corn
1 Heroic Champion Gandiva
1 Maestroke the Symphony Djinn
1 Stardust Dragon
(15)

Give those a go.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
