Krawler: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Duelist Chronicle GX event guide!
update 24/08/2019

Overview

“Krawler” is an archetype of mostly Level 2 EARTH Insect-Type monsters that has recently been introduced in Duel Links. The “Krawler” archetype primarily consists of Flip monsters that all share the ability to Special Summon more monsters of their own archetype when they leave the field because of an opponent’s card effect while they are face-up.

The strategy of this deck revolves around swarming the field with various Flip monsters, slowly depleting your opponent’s resources and then finishing them off with Deus-X-Krawler before they have a chance to recover.

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 Use

“Krawler” Monsters

If a “Krawler” monster leaves the field because of an opponent’s card effect, you can Special Summon two “Krawler” monsters with different names from your Deck. While it’s true that you can use this effect to Special Summon Deus X-Krawler directly from your Deck, which definitely sounds more appealing than using Krawler Glial’s effect, it’s unlikely that your opponent will ever make one of your face-up “Krawler” monsters leave the field, unless they are forced to. Krawler Spine does have 2100 DEF, so it’s slightly more difficult to get rid of, but all of your other monsters are really not that hard to get over.

Retaliating “C”

When your opponent activates a Spell Card that would Special Summon a monster, you can Special Summon Retaliating “C” from your hand. If it was Special Summoned this way, while Retaliating “C” is face-up on the field, any card that would be sent to the Graveyard is banished instead.

If your opponent activates Neos Fusion, you can Special Summon Retaliating “C” from your hand and banish their Elemental HERO Neos, preventing them from using it for Miracle Contact or Miracle Fusion, Bacon Saver and even Neos Fusion itself. Retaliating “C” can also be Special Summoned in response to the activation of Red-Eyes Fusion, Destruction Swordsman Fusion, Silver's Cry, Ancient Rules and Asceticism of the Six Samurai, just to mention the most relevant ones.

If Retaliating “C” is sent from the field to the Graveyard, you can add 1 EARTH Insect-Type monster with 1500 or less ATK from your Deck to your hand, except Retaliating “C”. With only 1400 ATK and DEF and such a disruptive effect, it’s unlikely that Retaliating “C” will stick around for long, but that doesn’t really matter: you can use its effect to search Krawler Spine, Krawler Axon, Krawler Receptor or Krawler Glial.

Krawler Receptor

Use Krawler Receptor’s effect to add Deus X-Krawler (or any other “Krawler” monster) from your Deck to your hand.

Krawler Glial

Use Krawler Glial’s effect to Special Summon Deus X-Krawler from your hand or Graveyard in face-up Attack or face-down Defense Position.

Deus X-Krawler

When your opponent activates a card or effect that targets your face-down Deus X-Krawler, by changing it to face-up Defense Position, you can negate the activation of that card or effect and then destroy it.

You can use this effect to prevent Snipe Hunter, Koa'ki Meiru Maximus, and Koa'ki Meiru Ice from destroying your main monster. After Deus X-Krawler is flipped face-up, all monster effects on your opponent’s side of the field are negated, so, even if Maximus or Ice were not destroyed because of Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru, you will not have to worry about them anymore. With this effect and 3000 DEF, Deus X-Krawler is definitely able to stick around for a few turns and, even if your opponent manages to destroy it, you can still bring it back via Kraler Glial’s effect.

Sealed Tombs works really well against Koa'ki Meiru, Subterror and even Blue-Eyes, slowing them down and allowing you to set up properly.

Weaknesses

  • Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon and Armades, Keeper of Boundaries can prevent your “Krawler” monsters from activating their effects. Skull Meister was added to the Example Deck to try and circumvent one of the main issues you will face on PvP: the Geartown Turbo matchup.
  • The deck is kind of slow and fragile; aggressive decks like Blue-Eyes and Koa'ki Meiru can easily take advantage of that.
  • Lava Golem can punish you for swarming the field with multiple monsters and Amazoness Swords Woman can freely attack your Deus X-Krawler for massive amounts of damage.

Thanks man! :)
I wish they had given us a Skill to go with this archetype; Subterrors were so lucky to get Masked Tribute.

Neos fusion is a just a good engine.
Not only you get a beater on board you also mill your deck and brave neos has draw power too.

Yeah, how dare people take advantage of a fusion card to start their plays. Whoops I just dropped a box of Garnets and Brilliant Fusions.

Too bad this deck is bad, Krawlers have some great artwork.
