Deskbot: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Upcoming roaming event...?
update 01/04/2019


“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.

How to Use

Deskbot 003

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.

Deskbot 004

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.

Deskbot 009

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.


  • Aside from Deskbot 009, none of your monsters have protection from removal. Koa'ki Meiru Maximus, Koa'ki Meiru Ice, Offerings to the Doomed and Treacherous Trap Hole can all be used to get rid of your monsters without having to attack into them.
  • Once you’ve sent all copies of Deskbot 009 to the Graveyard, Deskbot 004 becomes a lot easier to deal with. You want to run at least two copies of the Level 9 monster to be able to boost the ATK of Deskbot 004 and Special Summon an eventual Deskbot 009 you drew, but that also affects the consistency of the deck.

I tried throwing in some good synchros for this deck when I first played it, but they feel like a waste most of the time since the base cards can hold their own. My advice: get stuff like Mist Wurm or Stardust Dragon that are more there for effect support then actual damage. If its machine type, all the better.

You can run Ally of Justice Cyclone Reader as a lvl 3 machine tuner that can clear backrow, then use it to go in to lvl 6 or 7 synchros like Stardust Charge Warrior or Samurai Destroyer. Samurai Destroyer is especially good as it floats into one of your synchro materials if it leaves the field due to a card effect.
One of the many, tragically overlooked decks in the game, purely because it came out in the same pack as Synchro Samurai. Just like with my Aquactress and Aromage decks, its very easy to bait out moves from people who aren't paying attention, especially since no one plays this at high levels.
Too bad half the actual deck is never going to see duel links. Doomed is the day Konami adds Pendulum Summoning.
3 cosmic cyclone
2 econ
1 treacherous is way better

Switcheroo skill of course
trash bots are just trash.
rather play other f2p deck like hazy or lava-zoness
it's only good if ur opponent is a potato
now that most players know how to play against this deck, it really sucks (was an ex-trash bots player)

Do you mean like 95% of the playerbase ? Really, I must have a ratio of 60% wins for about 200 duels in the KC, using this deck, so it's obviously not bad.
And even if your opponent knows how to counter this deck, you can still manage to win if you know how to build your deck correctly.
(But the one showed there does not even counter Yubel..)
Guys, see that weakness about 004 when you have all your 009 in the graveyard and you can't boost its atk anymore ? Here's a tip for you : Use the jar of avarice to put 009 back in the deck, use 004's effect and get a bonus card. Win-win situation.

The thing is you must had 5 cards already in grave first to activate avarice

You can also use Earthshattering Event (each time a card is sent to the graveyard from the deck, shuffle a card from the graveyard into the deck), tends to be useful if you get it on the field alongside 004 plus it's continuous
Playing deskbots, I feel like no one knows how to read card effects. Most of my wins are because people are lazy.
I'm going on a specific strategy to win, but somehow, my opponents are always attacking my 004 and i can OTK them the next turn with 009...

Also, really great deck for F2P. Most cards are easy to get and machine supports are everywhere.

I once saw a replay where an AG player is so idiot, he attacked 004 when he could have attacked a 009 in defense position and inflicted huge piercing damage with his Ancient Gear Golem.

And he attacked 004, even after being made aware 004 can boost its own ATK!

I saw that replay too. Even worse, that was a KOG duel. A KOG shouldn't have been that stupid.....
Puzzle reborn& Transmodify, problem solved.
Without skull does this deck counter yubel?

Sometimes you just can't counter everything.

But I guess you can use Forbidden Chalice to negate Yubel forms' anti/reflect damage effect, and try to OTK the Yubel player.

Add Gravity Blaster to your deck and equip it to 009. That's my way to defeat Yubel and it's pretty good even against other decks.
Plus, if you manage to get your 009 to 4000+ LP, you'll do a nice OTK.
If you play against Deskbots, you need to block that combo before the battle phase, else 009 will block every kind of effect until it attacked.

*ATK, not LP
play this deck with zombie world
i got destroyed because i couldnt use silvers cry to special summon blue eyes

Blue-Eyes would still lose even if you can Summon it, anyway. 004 can send 009 to gain 4500 ATK boost.
Magical Cirlce lvl 2 is pretty nice.

I don't have limit reverse or trunade. What other cards for the backrow will work with this deck?
<< Anonymous(Twixiy)

Could always go with pulse mines

Any generic staple ones, I guess. Things like Econ, a copy of Canadia/Floodgate, or WoD and Windstorm of Etaqua, since without Limit Reverse, you have to make your monster survive instead of being able to revive them.

Windstorm > Pulse Mines, if you just want to run a copy.

Most of the time, you won't use Pulse Mines until after your opponent summon something, sometimes you won't even activate Pulse Mines until Battle Phase, in that case, Pulse Mines is just a worse Windstorm since it also requires you to control a Machine.

Pulse mines is good against OTK deck that uses backrow removal before starting their swarm.

It's personal preference of course.
I saw Dkayed's Deskbot deck running 3x Powerful Rebirth and 3x Limit Reverse. Really expensive for me, but then I remembered there are cheap cards that could work well for Deskbot deck : Power of the Guardians and Intrigue Shield
