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.

How to Use

Deus X-Krawler

Deus-X-Krawler
Deus-X-Krawler
EARTH Insect ★9
ATK 2000 / DEF 3000
Blazing Rose [UR]
When your opponent activates a card or effect that targets this face-down monster (Quick Effect): You can change this card to face-up Defense Position; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card. After this card was flipped face-up, while it is in the Monster Zone, negate all monster effects activated on your opponent's field. If this card on the field is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can add, from your Deck to your hand, 1 Level 9 monster with a different original Type and Attribute than this card. You can only use this effect of "Deus X-Krawler" once per turn.

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.

“Krawler” Monsters

Krawler Spine
Krawler Spine
EARTH Insect ★2
ATK 300 / DEF 2100
Blazing Rose [UR]
FLIP: You can target 1 monster on the field; destroy that monster.
If this face-up card in its owner's control leaves the field because of an opponent's card effect: You can Special Summon 2 "Krawler" monsters with different names from your Deck in face-down Defense Position, except "Krawler Spine". You can only use each effect of "Krawler Spine" once per turn.If this face-up card in its owner's control leaves the field because of an opponent's card effect: You can Special Summon 2 "Krawler" monsters with different names from your Deck in face-down Defense Position, except "Krawler Spine". You can only use each effect of "Krawler Spine" once per turn.
Krawler Axon
Krawler Axon
EARTH Insect ★2
ATK 500 / DEF 1800
Blazing Rose [SR]
FLIP: You can target 1 Spell/Trap on the field; destroy it.
If this face-up card in its owner's control leaves the field because of an opponent's card effect: You can Special Summon 2 "Krawler" monsters with different names from your Deck in face-down Defense Position, except "Krawler Axon". You can only use each effect of "Krawler Axon" once per turn.

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.

Krawler Ranvier
Krawler Ranvier
EARTH Insect ★2
ATK 1100 / DEF 900
Blazing Rose [N]
FLIP: You can target up to 2 "Krawler" monsters in your GY; add them to your hand.
If this face-up card in its owner's control leaves the field because of an opponent's card effect: You can Special Summon 2 "Krawler" monsters with different names from your Deck in face-down Defense Position, except "Krawler Ranvier". You can only use each effect of "Krawler Ranvier" once per turn.

Receptor and Glial

Krawler Receptor

You can only use each effect of "Krawler Receptor" once per turn.

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

Krawler Glial
Krawler Glial
EARTH Insect ★2
ATK 700 / DEF 1500
Blazing Rose [R]
FLIP: You can Special Summon 1 "Krawler" monster from your hand or GY, in face-up Attack Position or face-down Defense Position, except "Krawler Glial".
If this face-up card in its owner's control leaves the field because of an opponent's card effect: You can Special Summon 2 "Krawler" monsters with different names from your Deck in face-down Defense Position, except "Krawler Glial". You can only use each effect of "Krawler Glial" once per turn.

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.

World Legacy Pawn

World Legacy Pawn

Continuous Trap
Judgement Force [SR]
You can target 1 face-down monster you control; change it to face-up Attack or Defense Position.

You can only use 1 "World Legacy Pawns" effect per turn, and only once that turn.

Gachi Gachi Gantetsu
Gachi Gachi Gantetsu
EARTH Rock ★2
ATK 500 / DEF 1800
Antinomic Theory [SR]

While that target is on the field, cards with the same name as that target, and their effects, cannot be activated.
Shining Elf
Shining Elf
WIND Spellcaster ★2
ATK 1600 / DEF 1000
Shining Hope [R]
2 Level 2 monsters
When your opponent Normal or Special Summons a monster(s) (except during the Damage Step): You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; that monster(s) loses 500 ATK.

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.

Other Cards Option

Retaliating “C”

Retaliating C
Retaliating C
EARTH Insect ★4
ATK 1400 / DEF 1400
Tetsu Trudge Unlock Event [SR]
During either player's turn, when your opponent activates a Spell Card that includes an effect that Special Summons a monster(s): You can Special Summon this card from your hand. If Summoned this way, while this card is face-up on the field, any card sent to the Graveyard is banished instead. If this card 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"".

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.

Noted By Gurifu:

It’s Gurifu Early Kog July Kog with Krawlers! It works as anti meta and you pretty much sit there and wait for opponent to try to pop monsters so you can swarm the field and make everyone’s effects fizzle then beautiful dcs, Galil and spine were the MVPs allowing me to pop my opponents monsters and swarm the field And obviously Deus X carrying the duel, shuts down Thunder dragons and blue eyes like a bad habit and harpies and onomats just cry when you get your combo swarm popping off lmao. Gaia gave me the most trouble though popping my monsters as I set them and so fourth but other than that ggs and sorry to everyone who had to go up against me ;)

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.
