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.
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:
If you send Silent Magician to the Graveyard in order to Special Summon Mother Spider, your opponent will not be able to Special Summon Silent Magician LV8 from their Deck or hand because the effect only triggers when the monster is destroyed.
Wow gamea, you surprise me more, because you made really garbage decks. atleast learn to read please. "mother spider effect: If you have only INSECT-TYPE monsters in your Graveyard" sphere kuriboh it's a fiend idiots.
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.
Hey man c'mon just play security orb instead of sphere kuriboh, remember this is nothing more than an ´´example deck``. Why are u so pissed anyway? some of you shouldn't be playing Yu-Gi-Oh! but RAGE 2 !! iykwim
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.
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
