Well we took some time off, and we're back, continuing the Ice theme, with General Gantala of the Ice Barrier.  A general rule these days is that you just don't play tribute Monsters, let alone two tribute monsters, unless they have one hell of an effect, like say Dark Magician of Chaos.  Anyway, this is a Level 7, Water monster, and a Warrior, odd for Water...but he has 2700 attack (great) and 2000 defense (meh.) Moving along, what can General Gantala do?  Once per turn, he allows you to Special Summon (during your End Phase, to be precise) an Ice Barrier Monster in your Graveyard, present company excluded, naturally.  I like this, and remember, A Legendary Ocean could make this a one tribute, 2900 attack Monster.  Bringing a Synchro back to wreak havoc would be fun, although remember Trishula only gets her effect when Synchro Summoned, otherwise you just have 2700 attack on the Field.  I think it's a solid card for Ice Barrier players though.

Today’s card is General Gantala of the Ice Barrier. He is a 2700 atk, 2000 def, level 7, Water, warrior. He allows you to special summon any ice barrier monster from your grave during your end phase, except for himself. When it comes to Ice barrier, this card is amazing. A lot of ice barrier cards are set up for a lock down, and slowly becomes more aggressive through the duel. Gantala can be a key part of it, being a strong attacker and special summoning from the grave another general, or any ice barrier needed for the situation.

Now one thing is that being a 7 star, he is most likely to be pretty slow to hit the field, and you have to give up 2 monsters that are the core of the lock down to summon him normally. There are ways to special summon him, but it may take a little work. All in all, he’s only good late game, trying to rebuild the lock you used to summon him.

Advanced: 3/5 (in ice barrier)
Traditional: 2/5 (in ice barrier)
Art: 1.5/5

Welcome back from vacation guys. Starting of this short week we have General Gantala of the Ice Barrier. Ice Barriers have some of the strongest synchros in the game, yet lack the ability to swarm in order to summon them. Gantala greatly assists with this process. It allows you to special summon any Ice Barrier monster, except him, during your end phase (synchros included). Requiring two tributes in order to summon is a heavy cost but, and I’m not very familiar with the Ice Barrier archetype, I’m sure there are ways to get Gantala on the field and avoid the tribute. 2700 attack gets over most any monster your opponent can summon.
