The Inzektor archetype will be introduced in Duel Links in a couple days and, while it’s true that some key cards are still missing, namely Inzektor Dragonfly and Inzektor Hornet, this deck could prove to be very powerful even before Xyz Monsters are added to the game.

The archetype consists of DARK Insect-Type monsters that have the ability to either Equip themselves with an Inzektor monster from the hand or Graveyard or Equip themselves from the hand to an Inzektor monster that is face-up on the field. Some of their effects are active while they are equipped to a monster (Inzektor Earwig, Inzektor Ladybug, Inzektor Ant), others are activated when they are sent to the Graveyard while being equipped to a monster (Inzektor Hopper) or when a card equipped to them is sent to the Graveyard (Inzektor Centipede).

How to Use

Metamorphosed Insect Queen + Cocoon of Ultra Evolution

As long as there is another Insect-Type monster on the field, Metamorphosed Insect Queen prevents Insect-Type monsters from being targeted or destroyed by card effects and this kind of protection is something Inzektors need; Xyz Monsters are not in the game yet, so Inzektor don’t have any of their boss monsters.

After her first attack Metamorphosed Insect Queen can attack again if you tribute another Insect-Type monster on the field: you can attack with the monster you plan on tributing first and then attack twice with her.

Inzektor Centipede + Inzektor Hopper & Inzektor Ladybug

Inzektor Centipede is the card that will enable most of your plays: he can add any Inzektor card from the deck to your hand when a card equipped to him is sent to the Graveyard.

Thanks to Inzektor Hopper and Inzektor Ladybug, you don’t have to run cards like Storm or Release Restraint Wave to trigger Inzektor Centipede’s effect, you can just send them to the Graveyard with their own effects: Inzektor Hopper can be sent to the Graveyard while he is equipped to a monster to allow it to attack directly, whereas Inzektor Ladybug can increase the Level of that monster by 2 for the rest of the turn.

After Inzektor Hopper has been sent to the Graveyard by his effect, no other monsters on your side of the field will be able to attack except for the one he was equipped to, but, let’s say that that monster was Inzektor Centipede, you searched for a Inzektor Giga-Mantis with his effect and then equipped it: you will now be able to attack directly for 2400 damage; since Inzektor Ladybug increases the Level of the monster he was equipped to by 2, if you have sent him to the Graveyard, Centipede will have access to Beatdown!.

  • Centipede’s effect can trigger with any Equip Card, not necessarily an Inzektor monster: you could utilize cards like Smoke Grenade of the Thief to trigger the effect or any other card that is considered an Equip Spell;
  • If two or more cards equipped to Centipede are destroyed, his effect will trigger multiple times;
  • None of these monsters specify that they can’t be equipped to themselves, which makes the deck less subject to bricking.

Inzektor Giga-Mantis

Inzektor Giga-Mantis can Equip himself from the hand to a face-up Inzektor monster on your side of the field, which allows you to get around the “once per turn” restriction Inzektor monsters have.

Inzektor Giga-Mantis changes the original ATK of the monster he is equipped to 2400 and, if he is sent to the Graveyard while being equipped to a monster, you can Special Summon another Inzektor monster from your Graveyard. Giga-Mantis can’t Special Summon himself from the Graveyard and his effect will not trigger if for example you tribute the monster he was equipped to with Cocoon of Ultra Evolution.

If you have Centipede with Giga-Mantis equipped and you use Storm, you will trigger both monsters’ effects, searching a card from the deck and Special Summoning from the Graveyard.

Hey Trunade!

Inzektor’s playing style is quite weak against cards like Floodgate Trap Hole and Paleozoic Canadia: Hey, Trunade! provides a quick way of getting rid of your opponent’s backrow, possibly enabling an OTK.

Memory Loss

While Paleozoic Canadia is a superior option most of the times, there are a couple reasons why you would want to use this card instead: Memory Loss can prevent Amazoness Princess from searching Amazoness Onslaught and also from attacking and Special Summoning another Amazoness monster from the deck at the same time; it can slow down Fur Hires and Spellbooks and it comes from the same box as Hey, Trunade!, Insect Queen, Cocoon of Ultra Evolution (and Sylvans), so you probably already have a few copies of it.

Additional Notes

  • Beatdown! allows you to apply a lot more offensive pressure on the opponent: activating it is not that difficult thanks to Inzektor Ladybug’s effect and Cocoon of Ultra Evolution.

  • Being able to reset your hand, even at the cost of your first Draw Phase, with Restart can be worth it sometimes: the deck still needs to be tested, so this skill might end up being superior to Beatdown!, if consistency is an issue.

  • The current META is not exactly favourable: aside from Fur Hires, Amazoness can be very problematic with their ability to banish your monsters, so cards like Storm, Double Cyclone and Parallel Twister might be necessary.

  • A Spellbook of Fate can stop the deck right away by banishing the first monster summoned.

  • Being weak to Floodgate Trap Hole and Paleozoic Canadia at a moment in which both of these cards are almost necessary to play in PvP is definitely not great, it makes Hey, Trunade! even more of an essential card.

  • You could run more copies of Metamorphosed Insect Queen, but she is not the win condition of the deck and drawing her would make her a dead card, so you want to decrease the chances of that happening.

Other Useful Cards

Inzektor Ant
Inzektor Ant
Ant can protect once the monster he’s equipped to from destruction by both battle and card effect.
Forbidden Chalice
Forbidden Chalice
Very versatile card that can help in the Fur Hire matchup: it can prevent a Fur Hire monster from activating its effect without destroying it, which is relevant if the opponent has a Mayhem Fur Hire in his hand.
Enemy Controller
Enemy Controller
Excellent card in any deck that can be used both defensively and offensively to enable some OTKs.
Inzektor Sword - Zektkaliber
Inzektor Sword - Zektkaliber
Zetkaliber is an Equip Spell that boosts an Inzektor monster’s ATK and DEF; if its sent to the Graveyard, it allows you to add an Inzektor card from the deck to your hand, just like Inzektor Centipede, so if this is the card equipped to that monster, you can search for two cards when you destroy it.
Paleozoic Canadia
Paleozoic Canadia

Floodgate Trap Hole
Floodgate Trap Hole
Needless to say, these cards are a great way to defend yourself from a particular threat: the most popular deck in PvP.
Inzektor Orb
Inzektor Orb
A Trap Card that can be equipped to an Inzektor monster and prevent that monster from being targeted by a card effect by sending it to the Graveyard. Great choice in a pure Inzektor deck, it can trigger Inzektor Centipede’s effect while also providing protection from cards like Treacherous Trap Hole, Canadia and Enemy Controller.

I'm considering trying to build them with evocator chevalier, but since the only wsy to pull him is drawing into it, or maybe using jaden's ability, it probably won't do ttoo well...

What is the correct combo here?
1. Summon Centipede
2. Equip Hopper,
3. Unequip Hopper,
4. Search for Giga Mantis or Lady Bug or Earwig,
5. Equip Giga Mantis
6. Attack

That's still only a 2400 attack.
How do you OTK with it?
What am I missing?

Assuming you have Centipede, Hopper, Giga-Mantis, and Inzektor Sword in hand:

1. Summon Centipede
2. Equip Hopper
3. Unequip Hopper
4. Search Inzektor Sword
5. Equip Giga Mantis + Inzektor Sword * 2
6. Attack

Your attack would be 2400 + 800*2 = 4000. It's inconsistent but very satisfying when it does happen.

I run Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce in my Inzektor deck. They don't mind the discard, and it's easy enough to get over 2k atk with centipede and beatdown, so it's an easy otk.

IMO, this is a rather underated deck. I was surprised at how fun and versatile it can be, particularly if you take the time to learn it. Actually managed to topple some HFH and Amazoness with it.

YTDan also has a good template to build around.
if only we could get atleast one hornet and dragonfly this would be tier 1 they should release it.

Yeah, but if both are at 1, you can only run either Hornet or Dragonfly.
Finally, now I can create a Kamen Rider themed deck.

Hope they release the rest soon.
The deck just needs a few small changes and it's totally tier 1 worthy.
Wcs reward pls. So only limited card that who can use.

This card is limited in TCG ... How is it supposed to be in duel links with 3 copies ?

To be fair, Hornet being limited isn't THAT big a deal. You only need 1, it just helps consistency since you hit it earlier and, being an Inzektor itself, can also start plays if you don't have anything better.

If they were uber-concerned, though, they could just give it to an LD like Weevil at some point. (Wouldn't even be out of place given he uses Inzektors in Legacy of the Duelist.)

And obtaining them.

I like this deck alot because it actually requires thinking and making good plays which can be rewarding. I dont like insect queen bcause shes too bricky. Parallel twister goes along with this deck pretty well(for those who watch ytdan) .

Are you trying to say that:
a) beatdown is too strong and it needs a nerf
b) beatdown's nerf is too much
c) beatdown is so lit but you chose to use another word as your description
d) you can't speak english
