You can only use this effect of “Elemental HERO Solid Soldier” once per turn.

Elemental HERO Solid Soldier is a Level 4 monster with two archetypes. This card is an Elemental HERO and a HERO monster. This card is playable in a variety of “HERO” decks. Our hero made his debut in the 2018 Mega-Tins. He is a fantastic card to upgrade your “HERO” deck.

You can create many combo plays from this effect. There are many powerful Level 4 “HERO” monsters that have synergy with this Elemental HERO Solid Soldier.

Elemental HERO Solid Soldier’s second effect triggers when he is sent from the field to the graveyard by a Spell effect.

Finally, Elemental HERO Solid Soldier has an Earth attribute. His attribute gives you access to “HERO” monsters that require monsters with an Earth attribute. One of the best cards is Masked HERO Dian. Then, you special summon another “HERO” monster when Masked HERO Dian destroys a monster by battle.
