Flamefreeze Archetype (13/13) - Ice Counters Blazing Return!


Recommended Posts

Flamefreeze is an Archetype of Pyro/WATER monsters with various Levels and 0 DEF. They focus on Ice Counters and Synchro Summoning. Their main playstyle revolves around placing Ice Counters on as many monsters on the field as possible, both your own and your opponent's monsters, and have various purposes for doing so, mainly by manipulating your opponent's monsters for Synchro Summons and other various reasons. Their main boss monster is Flamefreeze Avalanche Eruptor which is a powerful Level 12 Synchro Monster, which gains effects depending on the number of Ice Counters on it.

Their name refers to their strange typing of Pyro/WATER, which was inspired by the recent Suship Archetype that has Aqua/FIRE, and just that I always wanted to do something with the Ice Counters, which has a few members that can also be useful in this Archetype, so that's why I made them searchable with Flamefreeze Former. They are based on various things related to ice and snow, as well as fire and lava, a duality that may not make a lot of sense, but hey, it's YGO nothing makes sense.

  • Zaziuma changed the title to Flamefreeze Archetype (13/13) - Ice Counters Blazing Return!

flake: really nice tuner. the 2nd effect is a bit specific version of Snow Dragon but given you dot want it to battle like ever its still nice with the card that self-pop your stuff (which is job for fire support cards i supposed)

burner: big damage to finish the job while also convert the counter on your monster to opponent, which is neat since all ice counter based effect is negative

former: the choice of making the searcher jump through quite number stipulation is kinda weird tbh. sure it even can search non-archetypal ones but its seems excessive. it has good number of counter generation though

grower: super nice extender that even can modulate levels definite 3-off along with flake for easy 3 material

crystal: okay, its a archetypal kaiju that extend and make tuner. whats not to love?

magma: cool link (yes) that also has unique tuner substitution. but it also begs questions, since it only "have" level with counter and this card have to rely on other card to get it. sure, the means of getting counter is not difficult but can you go tuning level 0 with this thing or the tuner status will not valid? other then that the negation is a bit niche but not bad IMO

match: woohoo a accel synchro kaiju. me likey. counter generation is decent too

melter: really good synchro. its pretty much cruel with Match. you kaiju them and then as your opponent try to rebuild his field you either chip down their 2nd setup or just blast them off again

eruptor: the real boss monster if you have the ideal hand, and terrifying it is. it pop almost anything your kaiju tuner missed. immune to most used card type in the game while having big stat that matters for the double attack and you you can do it safely with the Armades -esque mano-e-mano shutdown effect

I see you didn't comment on the Spells/Traps, not that you have to, but would be nice to have comments on those as well.

ah my bad is kinda my habit to break down reviews to parts unless i have the mood. its complicated personal thing, to be fair i didn't put my usual disclaimer about it

loch: it it does every good thing other than search. enabled gimmick, pushing damage, and protect. its decent

permafrost: powerful recursion that couple as another accel synchro kaiju summon. in the other deck this would be excessive but given the pool of ice counter based archetype the power is curb to fairness IMO

grotto: another searcher, it has stipulation but not as much as Former so we have to take it anyway at 3. it help generate counter on your side while also has removal option for destruction-immune monster albeit temporary

icicle: a better fiendish chain for the archetype. which its good but the main use of course is to put counter for your kaiju-esque synchro gimmick.
