  • Destroys up to 2 cards your opponent controls per turn.
  • Good stats.


  • Requires you to discard a card for every opponent’s card you want to destroy. Which can become costly.


Debris Dragon

You can revive a level-3 WATER monster with Debris Dragon’s effect and use both monsters to make Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.


Atlantean Marksman and Atlantean Heavy Infantry are good discard options for Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier’s cost to let you destroy another card your opponent controls.


Similar to Atlanteans, some Mermail monsters trigger their effects when they are discarded. Mermail Abyssgunde and Mermail Abysshilde let you Special Summon from your graveyard and hand respectively.

I'm still wondering why gungnir material is not generic unlike his brothers, Brionac and Trishula? Also in battle, gungnir is no. 2 because he has higher ATK than Brionac but lower than Trishula. If we look his effect, it's not broken.
poor Gungnir is going to be the only Ice Barrier Dragon that's not UR, since Brionac is UR and no doubt Trishula will be UR too
Has anyone tried making an ice barrier deck splashed with INVOKED? i think you can make a good deck with those
Is the discard a cost? Will it activate Dark World and Fabled effects?

It is a cost. Not compatible with Dark World, but could be used with Fabled. Still Gungnir is more suitable for Water deck, although you can easily summon it in any deck using LV3 tuner + Swamp Mirrorer

Since that the discard is a cost, it will also trigger Atlantean Marksman & Heavy Infantry's effect.
so Dialga is our first Ice Barrier Synchro in DL, huh

I thought it would be Brionac, considering the nerf......

Even with the errata, Brionic is still a powerful card- Gungir being the weakest of the 4 ice barrier synchros getting released first makes sense

When Trishula comes in, the meta will change.

Then Nekroz in Zexal in future

Yea, but them making it along with the discard is not something Aromages can afford to do well
