“Deskbot” is an archetype of EARTH Machine-Type monsters of various Levels whose effects primarily focus on swarming the field and increasing their ATK and DEF. Despite the fact that all monsters in this archetype have an original ATK and DEF of 500, they can quickly reach numbers that rival some of the biggest monsters we’ve seen in Duel Links.
When it’s Normal Summoned, Deskbot 003 allows you to Special Summon from your Deck 1 “Deskbot” monster, except Deskbot 003. If you Special Summon Deskbot 002, it will allow you to add a “Deskbot” card from your Deck to your hand.
Once per turn, during either player’s turn, Deskbot 003 is able to increase the ATK and DEF of a “Deskbot” monster you control by 500 for each “Deskbot” card you currently control until the end of the turn. Since it’s not stated otherwise, you can use this effect to increase Deskbot 003’s own ATK and DEF. Activate Deskbot 003’s effect before Deskbot 009’s effect to increase its ATK even more or wait for your opponent to try and destroy one of your monsters.
If Deskbot 004 battles an opponent’s monster, during damage calculation, you can send a “Deskbot” monster from your Deck to the Graveyard to increase its ATK and DEF by the sent monster’s Level x500 during damage calculation only. Keep in mind that, if you activate this effect, your opponent will take no battle damage for the rest of the turn.
If you send Deskbot 009 to the Graveyard, Deskbot 004 will gain 4500 ATK and DEF, which means it will be able to get over pretty much anything. If Deskbot 004 destroys an opponent’s monster by battle, it allows you to Special Summon 2 “Deskbot” monsters from your hand or Graveyard in Defense Position. Send monsters to the Graveyard to increase Deskbot 004’s ATK and then Special Summon them with its effect or via Limit Reverse. Prioritize sending Deskbot 009 to the Graveyard to get it out of the Deck and avoid drawing it.
Once per turn, during your Main Phase, Deskbot 009 is able to gain ATK equal to the combined ATK of all other “Deskbot” monsters you control. The ATK boost will last until the end of your opponent’s turn, but, if you activate this effect, Deskbot 009 will be the only monster able to attack during that turn. Similarly to Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon and Armades, Keeper of Boundaries, if Deskbot 009 declares an attack, your opponent cannot activate cards or effects until the end of the Damage Step.
Paleozoic Canadia, Enemy Controller and Offerings to the Doomed can still be used to prevent Deskbot 009 from attacking, but Sphere Kuriboh and Drowning Mirror Force are completely useless against it. Additionally, if Deskbot 009 is about to be destroyed, you can destroy another “Deskbot” card you control instead.
You can use Switcheroo to shuffle Deskbot 009 back into the Deck and then send it to the Graveyard via Deskbot 004 or Special Summon it via Deskbot 003.
