Evaluation

RatingA-

Pros

  • Decent base ATK.
  • Can search any “Inzektor” card from the deck and add it to your hand.
  • While equipped to a monster, it increases its Level by 3 (Beatdown!).
  • The effect does not state that you can't equip Centipede with another Centipede from your hand.

Cons

  • The searching effect does not trigger during the Damage Step.
  • Inzektor’s playing style is quite weak to cards like Floodgate Trap Hole and Paleozoic Canadia, both of which are quite common in the current META.

Tips

  • Cocoon of Ultra Evolution can allow you to quickly Special Summon the boss monster Inzektor Giga-Mantis from your Deck, as you will almost always have an Inzektor monster equipped with an equip card.
  • The flexibility of Inzektor archetype to equip/unequip themselves to one another, creates multiple possibilities and strategies to play this archetype.
  • The archetype is still missing some key cards like Inzektor Hornet and Inzektor Dragonfly, but this doesn't necessarily mean that an Inzektor deck with Metamorphosed Insect Queen as its boss monster wouldn't be effective. The synergy with cards like Release Restraint Wave and Storm in a META in which decks rely on back row so much is particularly good: Centipede's effect makes up for the card you lose to activate the effect.

Synergy

Cocoon of Ultra Evolution allows you to Tribute 1 Insect-type monster that was equipped with an Equip Card to Special Summon 1 Insect-type monster from your Deck. Additionally, this card can be banished from the Graveyard to shuffle 1 Insect-type monster from your Graveyard to your Deck and draw 1 card.

Parallel Twister allows you to destroy the equip card equipped to your Inzektor Centipede, and destroy any card on the Field. Double Cyclone destroys the equip card equipped to your Inzektor Centipede, to destroy 1 Spell/Trap your opponent controls. By doing so, Parallel Twister and Double Cyclone are able to trigger Inzektor Centipede’s effect to draw 1 “Inzektor” card from your Deck.

That Grass Looks Greener can quickly fill your Graveyard with Inzektor monsters so that you can directly equip them from the Graveyard.

Inzektor Archetype

These are the Inzektor monsters that can be equipped to each other to gain certain benefits.

Archetype Support

Inzektor Sword - Zektkaliber is an equip Spell card that can be equipped to any Inzektor monster and boosts their ATK and DEF by 800. Additionally, if this card was sent from the Field to the Graveyard while equipped to a monster, you can retrieve 1 Inzektor monster from your Graveyard to your Hand.

Inzektor Orb is an Equip Trap card that can increase 500 ATK and DEF to your equipped Inzektor monster, additionally it can be sent to the Graveyard to negate 1 card effect that targets your “Inzektor” monster (can be any Inzektor monster you control). Final Inzektion is able to destroy all cards your opponent controls, and your opponent cannot use monster effects that activate from Hand or Graveyard during the Battle Phase for this turn.

Variable Form is a Continuous Trap card that allows you to either equip 1 face-up Inzektor monster to another face-up Inzektor Monster, or Special Summon 1 Inzektor monster that was used as Equip card, to face-up Defense position. You can even activate 1 of these effects during your opponent’s turn.

Other Support

Unfortunately Centipede can't be Special Summoned by Howling Insect nor searched by Resonance Insect, but it can be Special Summoned from the hand by Pinch Hopper.

Searches

The effect does not state that Centipede can not search another Centipede. Centipede can search Inzektor Spell and Traps too.

Useful Skill

[Skill] descriptionUser
Beatdown!
This turn, the ATK of all face-up monsters on your field increases by the number of monsters of Level 5 or higher on your field times 300. This skill can only be used once per turn

Decks

Rulings

  • If two cards equipped to Centipede are sent to the Graveyard, the search triggers twice.
  • You can equip a monster to Centipede with his own effect and then equip a Giga-Mantis or Earwig from the hand with their effect to get around the once per turn restriction.

If they do add hornet and dragonfly, then there will finally be a viable deck that can counter Fur Hires.

Except there is nothing can counter Inzektor then.

Hornet Dragonfly combo is stupid and should not allowed in Duel Link until the future when powercreep finally reach some stupid level, as TCG one.

Maybe Konami doesn't brought them because they must be limited or maybe semi-limited, with 1 Dragonfly and 1 Hornet in the Deck

Please for the love of god do not add hornet or dragonfly.

D. Hero Celestial would destroy a lot of the mechanics of this deck in that it destroys spells and attached monsters face up in the spell field.

Finally with inzektor metamorphosed insect queen become much more viable. Can't wait to try it out

Yah insects are like the most under-supported archetype in duel links. Hopefully new arche's bring them back from the dead
