Set Skill

[Skill] descriptionUser
Parasite Infestation
After starting hands are dealt, 1 or 2 "Parasite Paracide" cards are added to your opponent's deck face up. This Skill can only activate if you begin the Duel with a Deck that has 4 or more Insect-Type monsters with different names.

How to Play

Digital Bug Monsters

Digital Bug monsters' first effects are all used to gain resources, mostly Special Summoning the monsters to your field to for Xyz summoning.

The second effects activate when they are used as Xyz material. But since currently your Main Deck monsters can only directly make Scaradiator, it's only possible to give these effects to Scaradiator.

Digital Bug Websolder
Digital Bug Websolder
LIGHT Insect ★3
ATK 500 / DEF 1500
Infinite Ray [R]
Cannot be used as an Xyz Material for an Xyz Summon, except for the Xyz Summon of an Insect-Type monster. Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up Attack Position monster you control; change it to Defense Position, and if you do, Special Summon 1 Level 3 Insect-Type monster from your hand in Defense Position. An Xyz Monster that was Summoned using this card on the field as Xyz Material gains this effect.
● If it is Xyz Summoned: The DEF of all face-up monsters your opponent controls become 0, also change them to Defense Position.

Websolder's first effect is inferior to your other Digital Bug monsters because Special Summoning from the hand is much less efficient than Special Summoning from the graveyard or deck.

Its second effect however, easily makes it worth running.

Digital Bug Centibit
Digital Bug Centibit
LIGHT Insect ★3
ATK 1500 / DEF 500
Infinite Ray [N]
Cannot be used as an Xyz Material for an Xyz Summon, except for the Xyz Summon of an Insect-Type monster. Once per turn, when this face-up card is changed from Attack Position to Defense Position: You can Special Summon 1 Level 3 Insect-Type monster from your Deck in Defense Position. An Xyz Monster that was Summoned using this card on the field as Xyz Material gains this effect.
● This card can attack all Defense Position monsters your opponent controls once each.

Centibit is the best Digital Bug monster early game. Normal Summon Centibit then Special Summon Websolder from the Deck, use both monsters to make Scaradiator. The summoned Scaradiator will then be able to destroy all your opponent's monsters.

Digital Bug Cocoondenser
Digital Bug Cocoondenser
LIGHT Insect ★3
ATK 0 / DEF 2000
Infinite Ray [N]
Cannot be used as an Xyz Material for an Xyz Summon, except for the Xyz Summon of an Insect-Type monster. Once per turn, if this card is in Attack Position: You can target 1 Level 3 Insect-Type monster in your Graveyard; change this card to Defense Position, and if you do, Special Summon that monster in Defense Position. An Xyz Monster that was Summoned using this card on the field as Xyz Material gains this effect.
● If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, your opponent's cards and effects cannot be activated until the end of the Damage Step.

The first effect revives a Digital Bug monster which is useful for recycling monsters you only have a single copy of such as Websolder and LEDybug.

When used as material, Cocoondenser gives the Xyz monster an Armades-like effect while attacking defense position monsters. The deck has a ton of ways to put enemy monsters in defense position so this effect can keep you relatively safe.

Digital Bug LEDybug
Digital Bug LEDybug
LIGHT Insect ★3
ATK 500 / DEF 0
Infinite Ray [N]
Cannot be used as an Xyz Material for an Xyz Summon, except for the Xyz Summon of an Insect monster. Once per turn, when this face-up card is changed from Attack Position to Defense Position: You can add 1 Level 3 Insect monster from your Deck to your hand. An Xyz Monster that was Summoned using this card on the field as Xyz Material gains this effect.
● When this card destroys a monster by battle, draw 1 card.

Unlike other Digital Bug monsters, LEDybug cannot trigger its own first effect. You'll need to switch it to defense position with Websolder, Curse of Anubis, or manually.

The second effect is great for gaining resources especially when paired with Centibit and Websolder or Curse of Anubis.

Book of Moon

Book of Moon
Book of Moon
Quick Spell
Selection Box Vol.04 [UR]
Target 1 face-up monster on the field; change that target to face-down Defense Position.

Bud Emergency

Bug Emergency
Bug Emergency
Normal Trap
Infinite Ray [N]
Target 2 Level 3 Insect-Type monsters in your Graveyard; Special Summon them, but their effects are negated. You can banish this card and 1 Xyz Monster from your Graveyard; the Levels of all Level 3 Insect-Type monsters you currently control become equal to the banished monster's Rank until the end of this turn, also you cannot Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn, except Insect-Type monsters. You can only activate 1 "Bug Emergency" per turn.

Extra Deck

Digital Bug Scaradiator
Digital Bug Scaradiator
LIGHT Insect ★3
ATK 1800 / DEF 1400
Infinite Ray [R]
2 or more Level 3 LIGHT Insect-Type monsters
Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 2 Xyz Materials from this card, then target 1 monster your opponent controls; change its battle position, and if you do, it has its effects negated until the end of this turn. Once per turn, when this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: You can attach that destroyed monster to this card as Xyz Material.

Scaradiator will be the one receiving the effects from your Digital Bug materials so it is sometimes better to not "evolve" him. Scaradiator's first effect works well with Cocoondenser's second effect. It also has an inherent way of gaining Xyz materials which also prevents your opponent from recycling the destroyed monster.

Digital Bug Corebage
Digital Bug Corebage
LIGHT Insect ★5
ATK 2200 / DEF 1800
Infinite Ray [R]
2 or more Level 5 LIGHT Insect-Type monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by detaching 2 Xyz Materials from a Rank 3 or 4 Insect-Type Xyz Monster you control, then using that Xyz Monster as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 Defense Position monster your opponent controls; shuffle it into the Deck. Once per turn, if the battle position of a monster(s) on the field is changed (except during the Damage Step): You can attach 1 Insect-Type monster from your Graveyard to this card as Xyz Material.

You can summon Corebage by detaching 2 materials from Scaradiator. Corbage has a powerful removal effect that can only target defense position monsters. It also has an inherent way of replenshing Xyz materials.

Digital Bug Rhinosebus
Digital Bug Rhinosebus
LIGHT Insect ★7
ATK 2600 / DEF 2200
Infinite Ray [R]
2 or more Level 7 LIGHT Insect-Type monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by detaching 2 Xyz Materials from a Rank 5 or 6 Insect-Type Xyz Monster you control, then using that Xyz Monster as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; destroy the face-up monster(s) your opponent controls with the highest DEF (all, if tied).

Rhinosebus can be summoned by removing 2 materials from Corebage. The piercing effect is good for pushing damage since you'll be putting enemy monsters in defense position a lot. Rhinosebus' mass removal effect can be used to destroy all enemy monsters when combo-ed with Websolder or Curse of Anubis.

Gaia Dragon, the Thunder Charger
Gaia Dragon, the Thunder Charger
WIND Dragon ★7
ATK 2600 / DEF 2100
Infinite Ray [SR]
2 Level 7 monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by using a Rank 5 or 6 Xyz Monster you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.

Gaia Dragon actually works really well in this deck because of his piercing effect and his ATK is equivalent to the Digital Bug boss monster's. For these reasons you may want to opt for Gaia Dragon if Corebage doesn't have materials and you only need to push damage.

Other Useful Cards

Bachibachibachi

Bachibachibachi
Bachibachibachi
LIGHT Insect ★3
ATK 800 / DEF 800
Shining Hope [N]
An Xyz Monster that was Summoned using this card on the field as Xyz Material gains this effect.
● If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.

Number 28: Titanic Moth

Number 28: Titanic Moth
FIRE Insect ★7
ATK 2400 / DEF 2200
Shark Fang [R]
2 Level 7 monsters
If you control no other monsters, this card can attack directly, but when it does so using this effect, the battle damage inflicted to your opponent is halved. When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; inflict 500 damage to your opponent for each card in their hand.

Jade Insect Whistle

Jade Insect Whistle
Jade Insect Whistle
Normal Spell
Standard duelists [N]
Your opponent selects 1 Insect-Type Monster from their Deck. After shuffling the Deck, place the card on top of the Deck.

Puts Parasite Paracide at the top of the opponent's deck for guaranteed burn damage during their next turn and wasting their draw. However, you should never use this in a mirror match because it effectively gives the opponent a free search.

Bug Signal

Bug Signal
Bug Signal
Quick Spell
Infinite Ray [N]
Target 1 Insect Xyz Monster you control; Special Summon from your Extra Deck, 1 Insect monster that is 2 Ranks higher or lower than that monster you control, by using it as the Xyz Material. (This Special Summon is treated as an Xyz Summon. Xyz Materials attached to that target also become Xyz Materials on the Summoned monster.) You can only activate 1 "Bug Signal" per turn.

Techs

Hey, Trunade!
Hey, Trunade!
Normal Spell
Rampage of the Forest [SR]
Selection Box Vol. 02 Mini [SR]
Return all Set Spells and Traps on the field to the hand.

Change to Defense

Both these Trap cards are able to change all enemy monsters to defense position. This is used for defense and because Digital Bug monsters excel at fighting defense position monsters.

Preemptive use of Curse of Anubis before you summon your Xyz monster is useful when you use Centibit or Cocoondenser as material without Websolder.

Windstorm of Etaqua
Windstorm of Etaqua
Normal Trap
Mai Valentine [R]
Change the battle positions of all face-up monsters your opponent controls.
Curse of Anubis
Curse of Anubis
Normal Trap
Odion [R]
Change all Effect Monsters on the field to Defense Position. Until the end of this turn, the original DEF of those monsters becomes 0, also their battle positions cannot be changed.

This deck is much reliant to their first normal summon. Much like Shiranui. The big difference is, Dig-Bug can't recover well if they got banished or interrupted.

Either you deck can survive/dodge 1 interruption or can carry tons of backrow without losing consistency

Digital bug does neither

Digital Bug. Disappointing in TCG/OCG...

Wonder if they will perform better in Duel Links. The deck could actually work but it looks like you could easily disrupt them.

The issue was that they came out towards the end of the pendulum era. Similar to Zarc it just wasn't able to attract interest before it became obsolete, what with it's core mechanic of forcing the oponent's monster into defense position not working against Link Monsters.

Too useful, maybe. Resistrider would make the deck too busted.

If you were doing a private tournament with a rule against using any ur/sr cards, then you might have a solid deck for such a format here.

Not only is the whole archetype n/r, bachibachibachi, photon lead, and power of the guardians are all n/r as well!

This really seems like one of those "My turn will be 20 minutes or 20 seconds" decks

Why Not using Doom Dozer and Carma Cut? instead of photon lead

You can use some copies of Lair Wire in this deck

This deck is primarily control oriented with its only otk being websolder + bachibachibachi on an opponents full field
