Continuing the Ice theme, we look at Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrior.  Gungnir is a Level 7, Water attributed Synchro Monster, with 2500 attack and 1700 defense, Synchro Summoned with one Tuner and one or more non-Tuner, Water Monsters.  Immediately notice the difference from yesterday, the non-Tuner(s) must be a Water Monster(s).  Still, once per turn you can discard up to two cards to destroy the same number of cards your opponent controls.  Now, one immediate upside here over yesterday is that you can )potentially) reuse the effect.  The 2500 attack on a Level 7 is solid, the only real thing hurting Gungnir is the fact that the specific type of Monster to Synchro.

Finishing this short week is Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier. Gungnir is the only dragon in the archetype to require some kind of specificity when summoning him, a WATER non-tuner. 2500 attack is great for a level 7 synchro. At the cost of discarding up to two cards to the graveyard (fishborg, treeborn, or ronintoadin as ex.) you can destroy an equal number of cards on the field. The WATER non-tuner requirement hurts its playability, but not all dragons can be as easy as Brionac, my bad he is a Sea Serpent.

Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

The level 7 Ice Barrier Dragon, Gungnir is probably the worst of the three. Although he isn’t bad, Trishula and Brionac are just better. Level 7 isn’t necessarily difficult to make, but Gungnir requires a non-tuner Water monster which could be a problem for some people. The key play I think of when it comes to making Gungnir is using Debris Dragon to bring back Snowman Eater. However you make him, his effect still isn’t as good as the other Ice Barrier Dragons. Because he is a little bit harder to make and his effect isn’t as good, Gungnir hasn’t seen as much play. Consider it for your extra deck if you’re running Water monsters, but it probably isn’t necessary

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3.25/5

Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

Short week this week folks, and starting off is Gungnir, Dragon if the Ice Barrier. This was once one of the more sought after cards when Hidden Arsenal 3 was released because of Snowman Eater's heavy usage. Now, it has fallen somewhat out of favor due to better Extra Deck options and a lack of usable WATER monsters. That's not to say it's bad at all. In fact it's still quite potent and is a threat once it hits the field. Discarding up to two cards to destroy the same number of your opponent's cards is good. Obviously some decks utilize Gungnir better than others, having access to WATER monster easier, but a this card is an easy Summon with Debris Dragon and a teched Snowman Eater. While it's not as popular as it once was, it's still a good enough Synchro, and be aware of it so it doesn't take you by surprise.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5
