- This card can be searched by "Dogu", "Single Purchase", "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6", "Level Up!", "Draconnection", "The Melody of Awakening Dragon" and "Krystal Dragon".
- This card does well in "Destruction Sword" Decks, since they more or less focus on performing Lockdowns.
- For Dragon-based Decks, this card can serve as an alternative to the Limited "Imperial Order". In that case, "Level Modulation" can be used to Special Summon this from the Graveyard.
- This card can spell doom for Ritual-based Decks, since Ritual Summoning is done almost entirely with Spells.
- This card works great in a combo with "Jinzo", "Royal Decree" or "The Dragon's Bead". This combo would make it so that the only effects that your opponent can use are Effect Monster effects.
- In addition to the lockdown combo above, you can also include "Dark Ruler Ha Des" or "Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou" for a more complete lockdown by preventing Effect Monster effects when "Dark Ruler Ha Des" destroy an opponent's monster by battle.
- You can also use this card with "Destiny HERO - Plasma" instead of "Dark Ruler Ha Des" to nearly finish the Lockdown.
- However, keep in mind that "Plasma" only negate in-field effects, so cards like "Effect Veiler" can still activate.
- If you draw this card, use cards like "Reload", "Card Trader", "Good Goblin Housekeeping", "Lighten the Load" or "Magical Mallet" to put this Dead Draw back in the Deck.
- Combine this card with "Tyrant's Temper" along with cards like "Skill Drain", "Mind Drain", "Soul Drain", and "Gravity Bind" to prevent your opponent from using monster effects and most traps.
- Since many traps activate during the Battle Phase, use "Mirage Dragon" and "Pitch-Black Warwolf" with this card.
- Using this card with"Arcana Knight Joker" will eliminate the need for Spells in your hand for Joker's effect, so you can focus on having Monsters and Traps in your hand.
