  • Very cheap and easy to build. This deck contains no UR card. Heart of the Underdog is the only one SR card.


  • This deck is just fun to play. If you want to build a competitive Insect deck for ranked duel, you would rather building a simple beatdown deck.

How to use this deck

Let's use Weevil's skill!

This deck is built just to use Weevil's Insect Uprising skill. See a flowchart below.

1Activate the effect of Magical Merchant, then send normal monsters to the graveyard and get Cry Havoc!.
2Next turn, activate Cry Havoc! and summon three Insect monsters using the effect of the trap.
3Now you can use the Insect Uprising skill. It decreases the ATKs of monsters your opponent controls by 800.

Anti-Aircraft Flower OTK

Although Anti-Aircraft Flower does not fit to the theme of this deck, you can perform one turn kill by using the effect of that monster and Cry Havoc! trap.

Essential cards

In case you do not have copies of Grasschopper.


A better insect uprising deck is 3x bladefly combined with 3x worm bait. Worm bait doesn't let you set level 3 or 4 monsters the turn you use it, but bladefly is lv 2 and lets you decrease the attack of earth monsters. It's 1100 attack when summoned, so anything less than 1900 attack is guaranteed to die. A few spider eggs lets you negate an attack when necessary and get 3 insects onto the field.

Millennium scorpion and grasschopper are good tribute summons, and cocoon of evolution and 4 star ladybug help stall. 2 of the best additions to the deck are Desert Twister and The Atmosphere, which take advantage of insects' typing and the deck's readily available tributes. Pinchhopper and Quill Pen of Gulldog are nice additions too.
Awful Insect Uprising deck. A far more consistent version uses Gokipon, Pinch Hopper, Scorpion and Graschopper along with Worm Bait. Worm Bait ensures you can activate Insect Uprising 100% of the time you get it on hand.

I'm trying to build an insect uprising deck. I was grinding with joey to get heart of the underdog, what would you recommend for an insect uprising DECK? I'm really new to making decent decks. I'm stage 30(no pay to win)

Out of everything I named nothing is PTW. Gokipon and Arsenal Bug are card trader cards, Grasschopper and Millenium Scorpion are drops from Weevil and Odion respectively. Pinch Hopper is a rare drop from Flame of the Tyrant and Worm Bait is a normal drop.

Awful Insect Uprising deck."
Agree with you 100%. This deck sucks and is outdated as hell. They need to update asap. A viable insect uprising theme deck does (probably) exist. I'm personally looking for one myself as I am bored of using typical "parasite infestation" burn decks and I want to build a fun competitive insect deck instead.
someone please post their deck tips.
I only won one game with this deck. HOWEVER it made the slug through "summon 60 insects" mission of stage 52 that much easier. 10/10
The term "swarm" has never been more appropriate.
