Traptrix: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
New pack: Absolute Inferno!
update 06/12/2018

Overview

“Traptrix” is an archetype that centers around the use of Trap Cards. “Traptrix” monsters are typically immune to “Hole” Normal Trap Cards and have effects that can either facilitate their use or provide support for their own archetype.

Despite the fact that Secrets of the Ancients, the 16th Mini BOX, will seemingly only contain two of the monsters that belong to this archetype, there's a good chance these cards will see some play even before the release of more support.

How To Use

Traptrix Atrax

Traptrix Atrax allows you to activate “Hole” Normal Trap cards directly from your hand while also preventing the opponent from negating the activation or effects of Normal Trap Cards activated on your side of the field.

Traptrix Atrax is essentially able to render useless cards like Hey, Trunade! and Cosmic Cyclone that are commonly used to deal with the opponent’s backrow, turning Treacherous Trap Hole, Void Trap Hole and Floodgate Trap Hole into Hand Traps.

Traptrix Dionaea

When Normal Summoned, Traptrix Dionaea allows you to target a “Traptrix” monster in your Graveyard and Special Summon it in Defense Position. Since the effect does not state otherwise, you can Special Summon another copy of Traptrix Dionaea from your Graveyard via this effect.

Once per turn, when Traptrix Dionaea is Special Summoned, it allows you to target a “Hole” Normal Trap Card in your Graveyard and Set it, but you have to banish it during the End Phase of your next turn if it’s still on the field.

The Third Monster

Snowman Eater, Breaker Magical Warrior, Elemental HERO Wildheart and Amazoness Swords Woman are all great options when it comes to this particular slot. Running only six monsters, unless we are talking about the Balance version, is really not advised as it would be difficult to draw them consistently

Floodgate Trap Hole & Paleozoic Canadia

Floodgate Trap Hole allows you to lock an opponent's monster in face-down Defense Position, it's definitely less versatile compared to Paleozoic Canadia, but, thanks to Traptrix Atrax, you can even activate from your hand.

You can chain Paleozoic Canadia from the Graveyard to another Trap Card and Special Summon it as a 1200 ATK monster; Canadia will be banished when it leaves the field afterwards, meaning it won’t from activating Treacherous Trap Hole.

Treacherous Trap Hole

The ability to activate Treacherous Trap Hole from the hand is one of the main appeals of this deck. Despite being Semi-Limited, Treacherous Trap Hole is still a great card in the current meta thanks to its ability to easily destroy two monsters on the field.

Keep in mind that your “Traptrix” monsters are immune to this card, so you can use them as one of the two targets and destroy just one of your opponent's monsters.

Void Trap Hole

A great card that can deal very well with Masked HERO and Blue-Eyes and that can benefit from Traptrix Atrax's effect.

Wall of Disruption

This deck has trouble dealing with high ATK monsters such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Masked HERO Anki, so Wall of Disruption, Mirror Wall and even Widespread Ruin are definitely advised.

Endless Trap Hell allows you to use Treacherous Trap Hole multiple times during the same Duel, it replenishes your resources and it also prevents you from decking out.

[Skill] descriptionUser
Balance
Your starting hand will reflect the card balance of your deck. This Skill will not activate unless you have at least 6 of each type of card (Monster, Spell, and Trap) in your Deck.
Akiza Izinski

By adding three copies of Super Rush Headlong and another Spell card of your choice, you can guarantee a starting hand with at least a Monster, a Spell and a Trap Card. Given the fact that we only have two Traptrix monsters so far, Balance honestly looks like one of the vest options, as it greatly increases the consistency of the deck.

Weaknesses

  • Saying this archetype is limited would be a euphemism; while the deck can still function properly, further support would definitely be appreciated.
  • “Traptrix” monsters are only immune yo “Hole” Trap Cards, so Mirror Wall, Wall of Disruption and Spellbook of Fate can still be an issue for them.
  • The deck struggles with high ATK monsters, not being able to get over them naturally and having to rely on either Wall of Disruption or Treacherous Trap Hole to get rid of them.

I can beat this with just one card, and if that snow man appear than just use chalice.

Traptrix Attrax prevents your normal traps from negation.

Jinzo can't negate any traps you play directly from the hand.

That is a lie. ANY Trap Card that is activated is placed face-up on the field to do so.

And regardless, Jinzo prevents Traps being activated, so it's irrelevant anyway.

Tried to test this using Atrax against Espa's Jinzo with WOD in the backrow and WOD was not allowed to activate.

Seems Jinzo's Effect > Atrax's Effect

From what I understand, Atrax does not allow the negation of normal trap activation and effects but Jinzo can also PREVENT activation.

Activation Negation =/= Activation Prevention

We need this card ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

If you have enough copies of traps like 3 wod Widespread FTH etc

This is very good. It's a searcher + thin your deck by 2.

There is something REALLY CREEPY about the lore of these cards, I can tell...
But what's really funny is the fact Yummy Bakura said she was a Traptrix type in real life lol.

Faced a Traptrix deck that uses Resonance Insect and Pinch Hopper, with Metamorphosed Insect Queen as the boss of the deck, being summoned through Pinch Hopper.

I would have won had I didn't brick, but either way it seems like a good build. Pinch Hopper and Resonance Insect helps Atrax too.

Meta Insect Queen has 2800 ATK too, so she can destroy opposing Jinzo.

I should try that.

if this deck had their beast card then they would of been tier 0 and way to over powerd and would be stupid so yha they have their crap cards not their best cards

Which is more cancerous? Heavy backrow based decks or OTK decks with backrow removal?

but giving the archetypes their best cards would break the game in this format

Well, how about a comprimise then? Two game modes: Speed duel like we have now and an 8000 lp mode where more cards are allowed. Everybody wins. Doesn't anyone want more of the cards released? Where is the adventure? The challenge?

(Please keep in mind that when I say more cards, I'm mostly just talking about monsters. I understand that having things like raigeki at three-even at 8000 lp- in a twenty card deck is bad. There would probably still be limits, but they shouldn't go so far as to kill decks.)
AJ
Probably the new must have. Plenty of people still don't know the mechanics of this deck and underestimate it. It seems like it's gonna give everyone a BUG surprise !

I think Traptrix is pretty much a strategy archetype and not just some troll stalling-trap based archetype like some actual Weevil deck users would like it to be.

people didn't think this deck was worthy at all and yeah, I guess they are going to start calling it cancerous soon. Imo it's pretty decent, atg least decent enough.

Yeah but they can still only use it 2 times max, maybe some mill cards could be good in this deck

They can actually use it 4 times with dionaea's effect.

Destroy them with card effect, of course

The Troposphere and Monarch Awaken should dominate against traptrix but good luck with your deck's consitency

Jinzo can't work against traptrix, don't even try it.

This deck seems like it could be viable. But will this make more people use the Anti-Trap deck? Traptrix literally can’t touch that deck.

If anti-become a problem, people can just tech in some offering or SRH for that.

The only way to counter this deck, is that you manage to use canadias in traptrix o destroy them when they took the fiel. because they made it's trap inmune, not even jinzo can negate them,

Any thoughts on balance being the deck skill? I have 3 Atrax and dionaea but should I tech any other mons or just fill up with traps?
