Effects that Special Summon monsters during the opponent's turn, such as "Call of the Haunted", "Scapegoat", can be used to trigger this card's effect and wipe the opponent's field.
This card can be combined with monsters that replace themselves, such as "Yang Zing" monsters. By Special Summoning them to a Monster Zone this card points to, it is possible to wipe the opponent's field without losing card advantage.
This card's effect can potentially backfire to controller if a monster is Special Summoned to its top Link Arrow. This strategy is more effective if the Special Summoned monster's effect can be triggered upon destruction, such as "Zombina", "Dragon Dowser", "Samurai Skull", "Crawler" and "Yang Zing" monsters.
This card can be combined with "Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis", by destroying it each time it is Special Summoned by its own effect during the End Phase, which will gradually drain the opponent's LP and cause it to Special Summon itself, provided there is a Plant monster in the Graveyard to be banished, possibly resulting in an OTK/FTK.
"Lost Wind" or "Fire Prison" can be used to negate this card's negative effect while allowing monsters to be safely Special Summoned to a Monster Zone a Link Monster points to.
