Selection Box Vol.04 Mini
update 03/01/2019

Overview

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.

-_- I was second turn, soul exchanged my opponent set monster and it was ice barrier monster, when I so that I didn't set any spell or trap so my opponent can do nothing, btw the duel replay is on my account, and it was my last duel before hit kog.

Agree with above Anon if you even save replay lol If you play with them enough, you wouldn't even bother to save replay now. So it just that you play with them a few time that's why you never lose. I believe you never lose to them though :P But even tier1 deck sometimes lose to 30 cards OTK lol

Dam these ice barriers.. Its not fun losing at turn 2. Ice and naturia are wrecking everyone's gaming pleasure. What can we do about it? Not having a protection spell, trap at starting hand equal gg for the player, this isn't fair at all.

I’m not an Ice Barrier or Naturia deck player and I think players like you are whiny little babies. Boo-hoo you can’t figure out how to win every single time you play. These decks are just better than yours. Put your big girl panties on and figure out a better deck. I play a Daedalus deck and I do fairly well against these decks. Do I win the majority of the time? Maybe not but I don’t whine

Though I faced them and should have lost at turn 2, my Sylvans made me resist until turn 8.

It's funny to read this comment now, the dude was complaining about Ice Barrier and Naturia, and now we have decks like Sylvan and Masked Hero.
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 🔥 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.

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.

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

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

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?
Freezer
I try to build Ice barrier deck without relying too much on Magic Triange. But it seems to be that Ice barrier cards still not be released much enough to lock down the field. Any suggestion about other card to fill up the deck?
<< Anonymous(Freezer)

It's not really that op. Only Magic Triangle is powerful but even Balance skill can't always bring it in the beginning. And there're many cards can be activated Dancer Princess before she sweep the away.
Ice Barrier deck WAS op when they first entry and easily climb to KoG but at present it's not like that.

And...relying only Magic Triangle combo is boring.

the meta hasnt changed at all since ice barriers came out tho, so how could it be op at the start but not anymore?

With magic triangle, most of the time u guys end it in turn 2. Its a make or break deck, anything more will be over powered. If magic triangle is boring, play something else imo.
<< Anonymous(Freezer)

I don't mean Magic Triangle is boring but I mean only one combo with Magic Triangle is boring.
There should be more combo we could come up if we add more different cards in this deck to make it's various and be able to be advantageous even if we play in the first turn or don't have Princess to clear the back row at the turn we attack.

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

Now that 'Balance' got nerfed, what skill should you use?

I'd assume probably Beatdown. Maybe Switcheroo given they have consistency issues and it's the least-nerfed consistency skill.

I personally take out the morays of greed and add more monsters, then run drawsense spell/trap. But then again i'm hardstuck plat 1. I'm thinking about experimenting with the deck listed up there with duel standby as the most important part of ice barriers is having the cards in your hand to reveal

I choose destiny draw. Simply the deck relies on luck. If you cant use triangle in the first two turn or even first turn then you will probably lose. Destiny draw really help when I play first.
