Mother Spider: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Structure Deck EX: Return of the Fire Kings
update 15/12/2018


“Spider” is an archetype of Insect-Type monsters with particular effects that usually require the opponent's monsters to be in Defense Position in order to be activated.

This deck focuses on changing the Battle Position of the opponent’s monsters to then Tribute them and Special Summon Mother Spider, the main card of the deck.

How to Use

Howling Insect

When it's destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, Howling Insect allows you to Special Summon an Insect-Type monster from your Deck with 1500 or less ATK.

Use Howling Insect to Special Summon Resonance Insect and then banish it for Lair Wire or Doom Dozer.

Resonance Insect

If Resonance Insect is sent from the field to the Graveyard, it allows you to add a Level 5 or higher Insect-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. You can use Resonance Insect’s effect to search Mother Spider or Doom Dozer.

If you banish Resonance Insect from your Graveyard to activate Lair Wire or to Special Summon Doom Dozer, its second effect will trigger, allowing you to send another Insect-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, ready for your next play.

Mother Spider

If you only have Insect-Type monsters in your Graveyard, you can Special Summon Mother Spider from your hand by sending to the Graveyard two face-up Defense Position monsters on the opponent's side of the field. There has to be at least 1 Insect-Type monster in your Graveyard for you to Special Summon this card, but, since it's not stated otherwise, you can still Normal Summon it.

Compared to Reptilianne Vaskii, Mother Spider has a lot more restrictions when it comes to Summoning Conditions, but switching two monsters your opponent controls into Defense Position is definitely a lot easier than lowering their ATK to 0.

As you can probably already tell, the main appeal of this card is the fact that it allows to remove from the field two of your opponent's monsters:

Overall Mother Spider is a decent card; you can use Needlebug Nest or even That Grass Looks Greener to get at least an Insect-Type monsters into the Graveyard faster and then Curse of Anubis or Earthquake to change the Battle Position of all of your opponent's monsters to Special Summon it.

Doom Dozer

Doom Dozer is here primarily for its high ATK, it's not that difficult to Summon, it can easily be searched and, after Beatdown!, it can get over a Blue-Eyes White Dragon.

This Skill is used to get over common high ATK such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Masked HERO Anki.


  • Your opponent is not always going to have two face-up monsters on the field that you can switch to Defense and then Tribute for Mother Spider.
  • The deck takes some time to set up and has to rely on backrow in order to survive; a simple Hey, Trunade! might be enough to enable an early OTK.
  • Mother Spider has no additional effect, it still removes two monsters from the field, if you manage to Summon it, but afterwards it’s literally just a 2300 beatstick.

You should be running a Howling Insect here. There isn't really a lot of scenarios where Gokipon's better.

I can barely understand what you're trying to say; I find it ironic that you are calling someone else an idiot.

He's right though, kuriboh sphere prevents spider's effect to work.
lol Sphere Kuriboh is not in the deck to make any combo with Mother Spider, wtf. It's clearly mentioned that Kuriboh is there to hold off the opponent. Anyway, guys, you made my day lol !
You are soooo silly.

Pointing out their mistake isn't a sign of anger. Unless you're referring to the first reply, in which case... I suspect the original post was trolling (there's no reason to be so pro-Sphere Kuriboh if they didn't think it was a bad idea, since there's no reason to defend a valid choice, and the "so silly" bit is obvious bait), so their response may have been somewhat justified.

People often forget this is just a sample deck.
Another horrible recipe from GameA. Let me give some advices :
- You cannot special summon Mother Spider if there is a non-insect monster in your graveyard. Play only insect monsters if you want to build Mother Spider deck
- You need at least 2 monsters on your opponent's field to special summon Mother Spider. Playing monster removal such as Lair Wire or Widespread Ruin will make Mother Spider more difficult to be special summoned. Stalling cards like Wall of D, Draining Shield or Defense Draw are more recommended than monster removal
- Play Earthquake. It is a normal spell that changes all monsters on the field to defense position so Mother Spider can be easily special summoned
Gamea staffs, Sphere Kuriboh doesn't work with Mother Spider.
With spehere ebola, curse of anubis , and even those 2 banned econs. I bet this deck is going to be really effective.
I think imma try it !

Sphere Kuriboh doesn't work for this deck.

It actually damages it.

Finally a high IQ archetype.
Waooooow that's more brick city than blue eyes deck
Evil Rick
Sorry to say but Sphere Kuriboh doesn't work with this deck.
Mother Spider's effect requiers for your graveyard to only have insect type monsters and Sphere Kuriboh is a Fiend
Evil Rick
So... this Spider deck only has 2 spiders in it...
