Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Vision HERO Faris

[Warrior/Effect]

ATK/1,600 DEF/1,800

You can discard 1 other “HERO” monster; Special Summon this card from your hand. If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can place 1 “Vision HERO” monster from your Deck, except “Vision HERO Faris”, in your Spell & Trap Zone as a face-up Continuous Trap, also you cannot Special Summon monsters from the Extra Deck for the rest of this turn, except “HERO” monsters. You can only use each effect of “Vision HERO Faris” once per turn.

Faris is a fitting name for Vision HERO Faris means knight, and Vision HERO Faris is a warrior type monster like most Heroes. This warrior is an effect monster with two effects. He provides support for all types of Heroes.

First Effect:

Vision HERO Faris special summons himself from your hand to the field. You only need to discard one HERO monster for the cost of this effect. It is a great tactic for Heroes. The effect special summons a monster and puts a key card in the graveyard for future use.

Furthermore, Vision HERO Faris provides many options. You may use this monster for a Link Summon or Fusion Summon with him as material. This card needs to be on the field for the summons of particular monsters such as Xtra Heroes and Masked Heroes.

In addition, this effect has strong synergy with Miracle Fusion. You are not losing resources in this case. Miracle Fusion may use your Hero in the graveyard as fusion material and fusion summon an Elemental HERO from your extra deck. The monster that you discarded still has value. You special summoned Vision HERO Faris and fusion summon an Elemental HERO with the same HERO that you just discarded for Vision HERO Faris.

Second Effect:

Vision HERO Faris also places a Vision HERO from your deck to the Spell & Trap Zone as a continuous-trap. Many Vision Heroes have effects that activate abilities in the Spell & Trap Zone. This effect provides consistency for their strategy. It places them in the Spell & Trap Zone, and then you may activate their powerful effects.

Vision HERO Increase is a useful card to place in your spell and trap zone with this effect. Vision HERO Increase tributes a hero and allows you to special summon a Vision HERO from the deck. You swap monsters for the best one to counter the opponent.

Furthermore, the second effect of Vision HERO Faris restricts you to only special summoning Heroes from the extra deck. This restriction is not a problem for Heroes. Decks with heroes have many Heroes in the extra deck. You may continue your powerful combo and special summon a HERO from your extra deck.

Support:

Heroes have a huge library of support for Vision HERO Faris. You may play this card with Elemental HERO, Destiny HERO, Evil HERO, and Vision HERO. A lot of cards from these sub-archetypes provide support for each other. Therefore, they will support Vision HERO Faris.

Elemental HERO Stratos is a fantastic card in a deck with Vision HERO Faris. Elemental HERO Stratos adds a HERO from the deck to your hand, and you may use to effect to add Vision HERO Faris to your hand. It is a simple and effective combo. You have quick access to Vision HERO Faris.

Fusions:

Vision HERO Faris is fusion material for many Heroes. He fits the name of HERO and attribute of Dark for the requirements of many Fusion Monsters from the archetype. You have a variety of options for your type of deck.

Masked HERO Dark Law is one of the best Fusion monsters in Yu-Gi-Oh!. You may activate Mask Change with Vision HERO Faris and fusion summon Masked HERO Dark Law. Then, you would have control of the game. Masked HERO Dark Law banishes your opponent’s cards.
