Traptrix: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Tabletop RPG event guide!
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.

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.

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 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.

I wouldn't say traptrix is cancer but Duel Links really didn't need more of this junk. A lot of people are sick of garbage like this. This deck is fun in real Yugioh but not here.

Yes. I'm sick of Konami's obsession with trap/burn and gimmick decks like deckout stall and wildheart/tenkabito. They need to start actually finishing archetypes that are released in the boxes.

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?

Calling it from now .... Yubel will disappear from Ranked after this deck comes to the game

I don't think Yubel will disappear at all. The deck now use traps as hand traps. The only thing that stops Yubel in this deck is Floodgate Trap Hole and Canadia. Traptrix does activate FTH from the hand but only if it is on hand in the first place.

It's pretty easy to outpower the deck with strong monsters and monster effects. I don't understand why this one is so relevant to a lot of people.
