Ice Barrier: deck recipe

Duel Links Top Story
Yami Marik event part 2 is live now!
update 03/08/2017


This deck can quickly brings out high leveled monsters and also offers great draw power to keep up your swarm tactics. With balance your starting hand would always be 3 monsters and 1 spell card. This is good because both spells in this deck need monsters in your hand to be activated.

How to use

Summon your big monsters

Use Magic Triangle of the Ice Barrier to destroy a card your opponent controls and special summon your strongest Ice Barrier monster on hand. For offense and swarm, the best choice would be to special summon General Grunard of the Ice Barrier or General Gantala of the Ice Barrier. For defense best choice would be to special summon special summon Dai-sojo of the Ice Barrier.

Draw cards

Drawing cards will help you thin your deck faster so you can get the cards you need.

Protection from spell/trap cards

You would want to protect your monsters from spell and traps, especially your generals, since it would be very bad if your biggest monster on the field was destroyed.

With the change to balance triangle is less consistent. But you can use restart or duel standby. The deck is not dead.

but the cards?
Konami really needs to release General Raiho already. Deck is great but punishing Hand size for effect activations would really help match ups.

op? compared to Cyber Angels, Red Eyes, Toon, Reliquished and Naturia beatdown decks? Ice barrier decks lack consistency and their principle removal is spell based, and so it countered by the smattering of silent magician budget decks on ladder, as well as counterspell cards.

Where did he say Naturia was OP? He said compared to Naturia, which is stronger than Ice Barrier. Learn to read, kiddo.

It's not. It's just not as consistent as it used to be before balance nerf, but it can still pull off quick wins.

there is so mutch ice barrier cards in the real game and powerfull ones they have to pit more in duel links
So boring deck
I am so boring to see and use this deck - it's cheap more than even naturia deck, and it even nooob more than Naturia. If you get lucky, show your noob hands and you can destroy one card your opponent even it's is a spell trap card and you can able to summon 3 stupid monster and kill your opponent in turn 2 that logic too depend on luck and it's so brainless...

I think he means if both players have 20 cards in the deck then it can be countered easy. But yeah sometimes you dont get the cards you need right of the bat.
