Use this card in a "Chess" Themed "Archfiend" Deck. It makes for a strong defense when applied to "Infernalqueen Archfiend" because her effect includes raising the attack of your monsters by 1000 during the stand-by phase. It's also good to use on "Vilepawn Archfiend" possibly disrupting the opponent's flow of attacks for the turn.
In a Gemini Deck, this card works wonders with "Gemini Soldier" thanks to a built-in effect to escape destruction by battle.
Use with monsters that can attack directly, because these monsters usually have low ATK. Alternately you can protect a monster equipped with "Shooting Star Bow - Ceal" and regain the ATK lost by the card's effect.
Use this on your "Exploder Dragonwing" when it is attacked by a stronger monster, since it will not be destroyed in a battle with a monster with the same ATK, and can also inflict Burn damage if it destroys a monster.
This card is a good counter against a monster that gains attack rappidly, such as Dark Paladin. It's especially deadly if used with the Exploder Dragonwing strategy, depicted above.
Combine this with Maha Vailo so that if it is targeted as an attack the next turn it should have 500 more ATK than the monster that attacked it.
This card would work very well in a Fortune Lady deck, because most of the Fortune Lady monsters gain attack power during the standby phase, allowing the monster to survive, and overpower the attacking monster the next turn.
Activate this card after Alchemy Cycle or chain it to this cards activation to gain an ATK boost equal to the opponents monsters ATK.
