This card can make for additional boss monster for the Deck (either along side, or independent of "Rainbow Dragon"). Since "Rainbow Dragon" counts "Crystal Beast" monsters from the field or Graveyard, sending "Crystal Beast" monsters from the Spell & Trap Zones to the Graveyard to Summon this card before "Rainbow Dragon" can give the player two 4000 ATK beatsticks.
This card's Defence Position effect can work well alongside "Crystal Beast Emerald Tortoise" and "Amethyst Cat". The former can switch "Hamon" to Defense Position after attacking, while the latter can attack directly each turn, while being safe from being attacked.
By using this Defence Position card along side another monster that prevents other monsters from being attacked, such as"Batteryman D" or "Morphtronic Magnen", a lock can be established.
While this card is in Defence Position, equip "Mist Body" in make the opponent's only attack target unable to be destroyed by battle.
Since this card has the highest original ATK among Thunder-Type monsters, cards like "Makiu, the Magical Mist" and "Wattcine" can be used to their maximum potential.
Using "Convulsion of Nature" and "Archfiend's Oath" together can help speed up drawing (and Summoning) "Hamon". This strategy can be enhanced using "Recycle", to retrieve lost Continuous Spell Cards, and "Card Shuffle". "Convulsion of Nature", "Archfiend's Oath", "Recycle" and "Card Shuffle" are all Continuous Spell Cards, and thus can be sent to the Graveyard to Summon "Hamon".
"Destiny Board" can potentially be used to gather Continuous Spell Cards onto the field. However, by the time this card can be Summoned there will only be 1 "Spirit Message" Spell Card required to place before being declared achieving an an instant win.
