Ice Barrier: deck recipe

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.

Decks that counter Ice Barriers:

1. Ninja -> Can use Ninjutsu Art to dodge magic triangle (They don't get to special summon their Boss monster and are stuck with their bricky hands)

2. REBD Combo: Champ Vigil shut them down completely.

Why even bother talking about Toons? It does't really counter any specific decks. It simply shuts down every opponent deck when it gets a god hands.

You don't always start with 2 Magic Triangles, and it is not easy to search for another Magic Triangle when your first one got negated. The thing with Magic Triangle is that it requires 3 different monsters in your hands so Ice Barriers players usually lack decent backrow. Both Ninjas and REBD players can still comes back because they often have more backrow than Ice Barrier players.

2 is ideal, any more and you risk having too many of the same name in your hand.

Meh. I gave up on this deck. If I don't get magic triangle or draw it with moray I lose the game. It's pretty much a feast or famine deck.

Make sure you are using the draw cards well. It doesn't hurt to throw the samurai out and flip him into defense the next turn. Also get rid of duplicates by activating the strategist for another chance to draw your spell card. All in all, if you don't get the ice barrier spell card you should be able to penetrate about half your deck in 2 turns, yes it can brick but really, so can all decks.

Problem with this deck is if you fail to otk once, recover from it is almost zero chance, you dont have protection or plus mechanic. Same if your spell got negate. So we need luck not to get countered by opponent.

Well I knew this deck could brick, but boy the power of dark version bricks even more, haha. Why these japanese players play them in high plat makes me wonder, but.. I like it.

I know Moray of Greed is a necessary evil in these decks, but I fucking hate it. I can't count how many time it's screwed me over, either because I played it instead of Magic Triangle, or because I drew it with balance and my deck decided to clump all three Magic Triangle at the very bottom, for some reason.

I wish i got more Dance Princesses. I only have 1. But Legendary Ocean works wonderfully with this deck. I'm running Legendary Ocean with Royal Knight. This is a 2200 attack beater with no tribute. Ya'll sleeping on it
