Combine this card with "DNA Transplant", to destroy any monster your opponent controls.
Use this card with "Double Summon" or "Ultimate Offering". You can summon many "Shock Troops of the Ice Barrier" in one turn, and destroy many of your opponent's monsters.
While you control a weak"Ice Barrier" monster and your opponent has 1 monster, Summon "Shock Troop" and activate "Creature Swap" and take control of your opponents monster and give them a weak monster like "Defender of the Ice Barrier". Next, activate "Shock Troopers" ability, destroying defender and adding a monster like "Prior of the Ice Barrier" to revive defender later, but leaving their field open.
Use this card with "Oyster Meister" to offset the card loss. If the monster retrieved by "Shock Troops of the Ice Barrier" requires a Tribute, the "Oyster Token" can be used for it as well.
