So, this card basically waits for the opponent to destroy it. At which point you shuffle this card back into the deck and you draw a card. Most people play Heavy Storm and MST as their main forms of S/T destruction. Monarch decks play Mobius and D-hero beatdown decks play Stratos. So, overall there just aren't enough cards to trigger this. And the fact that it goes back to the deck doesn't help this card either, as when you draw it again, there are even less probability of it going off again.

If you want a trap that lets you draw a card, play Jar of Greed.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
Art: 2/5

A one for one, that recycles itself...that's what we have here folks. I don't see this being worthy of a Deck spot, even in the E-Hero Deck where it belongs, because there are better cards for you to play. Sorry E-Hero fans....

Ratings: 1.25/5 all

Like so many cards in this game, a simple phrase or word in the effect text can take an otherwise useful card, and turn it into a waste of cardboard.

In Hero Medal's case, that phrase is "by a card effect controlled by your opponent". If Hero Medal's effect would be activated when destroyed by anyones card effect, then it would be a worthwhile card.

Mobius the Frost Monarch, Greenkappa, Icarus Attack, Dark World Lightning, the potential for combos is huge.

Sadly, poor card design neuters yet another potential addition to the game.

---------------------------------

Traditional:
1/5 - Despite the fact the Harpies Feather Duster is ran everywhere, there are better cards.

Advanced:
1/5 - Pure garbage.

Hero Medal
Normal Trap
When this Set card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard by a card effect controlled by your opponent, shuffle this card into the Deck. Then draw 1 card.

This card is very slow and you have to wait until your opponent chooses to summon a Mobius the Frost Monarch or plays Heavy Storm. You then get this card back for and possible second draw. This card will be more useless if you keep seeing it when the opponent has already used most Spell or Trap Removal. We have Jar of Greed which allows us to draw one card from our decks. That thins it down and it is much faster, but then again you'd rather have the card you want in the deck ready instead of waiting to draw into it.


Traditional: 1/5 - Evem though there is Feather Duster it still doesn't help that much.
Advanced: 1/5
Art: 1.5/5

Hero Medal
Normal Trap Card
When this Set card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard by a card effect controlled by your opponent, shuffle this card into the Deck. Then draw 1 card.

Here is another card just like Statue of the Wicked and Dark Coffin. I really don't like this card, sure you draw a card if it's destroyed by an opponent's effect, but you can draw this card again by the effect. There are so many bad parts to this card. It's dependent on your opponent to destroy it and the fact you can draw this card by its effect is really bad. I'd rather play Dark Coffin or Statue of the Wicked over this card. If you really wanted to draw a card, Jar of Greed or when it's released, Legacy of Yata-Garasu would be a better bet than this. Also, with the decrease of play of Mobius the Frost Monarch, it's even harder to really have this card go off to work.

Traditional: 1/5 Bad, just bad
Advanced: 1/5 Really bad

Today is Hero Medal. It is filler, plain and simple. Your opponent will be bummed when they hit this, but then will be even more agressive since they know you play it, and therefore less defensive cards.

It is not better to play this than Dark Coffin. Jar of Greed does the same thing better, only your opponent won't know that it is coming. Not to mention that Hero Medal WILL come up when you need that all important Snatch Steal instead. Even in Jaden's deck this is bad.

Traditional- 1/5 (You have too many good cards here to play bad ones)
Advanced- 1/5 (more of a chance here, but still none)
