Icicle Burst is one of the cards in Stormbound: Kingdom Wars.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Icicle Burst is a common spell that deals damage to a frozen enemy. The strength limit can be increased by leveling it up. Icicle Burst can be found in freeze control decks.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Icicle Burst can only be used if you have a frozen enemy, so build your deck to have lots of freeze cards.

  • Use Icicle Burst to instantly destroy strong enemies that might withstand the weaker effects of Wisp Cloud or Midwinter Chaos.
  • Icicle Burst is great for emptying a tile for you to play Wisp Cloud on, especially in very crowded board situations.
  • Pair Icicle Burst with Frosthexers for an insane amount of damage to an enemy for very little cost.
  • Icicle Burst also serves as an easy and cheap way to set up combos with other cards like Spellbinder Zhevana.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Alongside Midwinter Chaos and Moment's Peace, Icicle Burst's art contains an icy figure that represents a frozen enemy. The figure is also very similar to the figures in Call for Aid's art.
