Dance Princess of the Ice Barrier, another Ice Barrier card, who is a Level 4, Water type monster, and a Spellcaster, with a respectable 1700 attack and a rather low 900 defense.  Now, stop me if you have heard this before...once a turn, if you control another face-up "Ice Barrier" monster, you can reveal any number of "Ice Barrier" monsters from your Hand to return an equal number of Magic or Trap cards your opponent controls and return them to your opponent's Hand.  Not bad, especially if she is helping you win this turn, and she certainly fits in well with the rest of the Ice Barrier monsters.
Traditional:  2/5

Dance Princess of the Ice Barrier …
FINALLY! New cards to play with!
First off. This is probably one of the stupidest named cards ever. Dance Princess? Hahaha ok. Whatever.
1700 ATK – solid. Water – fun. Spellcaster – great. The effect? … well that’s where things get a little chewy … Ice Barriers like to bounce, so Dance does it fairly well, but she’s too reliant upon other things. Firstly, she needs another Ice Barrier out with her in order to do it. Fail. And then u need MORE Ice Barriers in your hand. U need to reveal them in order to send only set spells and traps back to ur opponent’s hand. Double Fail.
If she could do this herself without reliance upon another Ice Barrier being with her, and could send any and all spell/traps back to either owner, u might have something … but that isn’t the case.
She’s pretty, so … put her in ur binder to dress it up. But don’t ever bring it out or put it in ur deck.
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5


Dance Princess of the Ice Barrier is pretty strange. The name, I mean. Why? Why have a dance princess? The Ice Barrier has some odd jobs.

The Dance Princess doesn't do much. Really. She has a stable attack score and is level 4, but she's just an Ice Barrier Trunade. And Ice Barrier is one of the worst new-ish themes, because it can't actually do anything. It can't summon. It can't bring out beatsticks. It can't hold the field. If you're lucky, Dance Princess of the Ice Barrier will be able to spin a few cards, but what then? Trunade on a monster isn't very useful, because if your normal summon is Giant Trunade, then your Giant Trunade better double as the field of monsters your normal summon is supposed to help you spam.

Art: Dance Princess is kawaii!
Fun Fact: LittleKuriboh also has an abridged series for Naruto.
Tomorrow: I wouldn't want to SNEAK a PEEK at this MO.

The Legion

Hey Pojo, today’s card is Dance Princess of the Ice Barrier. This Monster is a 1700ATK 900DEF whose ability lets you reveal any number of ice barriers in your hand to return face down magic and traps on your opponent’s side of the field, equal to that number, to your opponent’s hand.

Now this card seems pretty good if you’re running an ice barrier deck. It has decent attack, and a tricky effect. Now I say tricky, because this card’s effect, if I am reading it correctly, states that you return the set spell and traps equal to the number of ice barriers you reveal. By changing the number of face downs by using MST or similar strategies then the effect wouldn’t go off.

But that is not always the case, and therefore is a pretty decent card. If her effect doesn’t get you, she can still attack with some decent strength.  But if you don’t want to run ice barriers, I suggest a Giant Trunade.

Art: 3/5 (Canadian DDR meets Yu Gi Oh?)


Hey Pojo, Pheano here with another Card Of The Day For you.

Today we will be taking a look at one of the new cards from Starstrike Blast, Dance Princess Of The Ice Barrier. Dance Princess Of The Ice Barrier is a Level four Water Spellcaster with seventeen hundred Attack and nine hundred Defense. Once per turn if you control another face-up Ice Barrier Monster you can reveal other Ice Battier Monsters in your hand to return the same number of Set Spell or Trap cards to the opponents hand.

This card has a lot of potential some day. If Ice Barriers get a card that will let them summon out multiple monsters at once much like Rekindling then this card will be great due to its OTK potential. To my knowledge they do not have a card like this and are lacking enough support to make good use out of this. On top of the lack of good Ice Barrier support there is a lack of good Water support. The only Water support that this card can really use would be Salvage so you can get some extra Ice Barrier Monster in your hand, Spiritual Water Art – Aoi so you can discard some of the cards from their hand after you return them to their hand, and Moray Of Greed so you can return all of the Ice Barrier Monsters back to your deck for more live cards after you have used them for this card’s effect. While those are good support for this strategy its just not enough to make this a viable and relevant combo in the current metagame. Until it gets the support it needs, like a Rekindling for this arch-type, to string together OTK’s don’t expect this card to do anything.

In the Traditional Format this card is virtually useless due to how broken everything else is in that format is so broken and there are far better ways to clear the back row like Harpies Feather Duster and Heavy Storm.

Bottom line:
It’s a good card with potential but it lacks the support to make a solid combo with it.
Advanced: 1/5
Traditional: 1/5
Art: 5/5 I usually don’t do a thing on the art but I really like the art on this.

Hit me up on Pojo or Youtube (pheanoblack) if you have any comments or questions, I’m always open to constructive criticism.
