- Combo with the effect of "Scrap Dragon" for a + 1 in card advantage.
- If you use this combo with another copy of "Balmung", you will potentially be able to use Scrap Dragon's effect every turn.
- If you have a copy of this card (that was properly Synchro Summoned) in your Graveyard and control a "Des Counterblow", attacking with a second copy of this card creates an infinite battle damage Loop.
- "Ancient Forest" can also serve as a lesser substitute, since it only destroys monsters at the end of the Battle Phase.
- Psychic Gusto deck can setup this combo rather easily, simply by having "Telekinetic Power Well" to Special Summon at least 2 "Esper Girl/"Psychic Jumper" and 2 "Winda, Priestess of Gusto"/"Kamui, Hope of Gusto", then Synchro Summon 2 Balmungs at once and flip "Des Counterblow" to start the loop combo.
- This card also works well with "Call of the Haunted" or "Wicked Rebirth", since it will trigger this card's effect when it is destroyed. Works best when taking advantage of your opponent's "Mystical Space Typhoon".
- You can use cards such as "Torrential Tribute", "Black Rose Dragon", or "Dark Hole" to destroy all monsters on the field. Then because this card will then summon a monster, you will have the only monster on the field.
- With "Marauding Captain" and "Attack Gainer" you can Synchro summon this card in one turn and take full advantage of Attack Gainer's effect.
- This card works well in a "Yang Zing" Deck: Synchro Summoning this card by using "Chiwen, Light of the Yang Zing" and "Bi'an, Earth of the Yang Zing" will make it immune to battle destruction, and the only way your opponent will have to get rid of this 2100-ATK beater is by destroying it with a Card Effect (considering it will not use cards like "Dimensional Prison", "Number 50: Blackship of Corn" etc.), which will trigger its effect and allow you to Summon a "Yang Zing" monster, setting up more Synchro Summons.
