CDP: Inzektor 2023, with P.U.N.K., Bystial, and Infernoble

Destructive Combo Insects do Combo Things.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back for today’s Creative Deck Profile, this time showcasing the Inzektor archetype in all of its TCG-Legal glory. On a side note, this also marks a promise I made two and a half years ago, where I promised to cover Inzektor again when Zektrike Kou-Ou was revealed. Well, at least I’m covering it now. Anyways, the Inzektor archetype consists of DARK Insect monsters of various levels, that can equip other Inzektor monsters from your hand/GY as Equip cards. Additionally, certain Inzektor monsters, specifically Inzektor Hornet and Inzektor Ladybug, can send themselves to the GY. On one hand, Hornet can destroy a card on the field and Ladybug can increase the Level of a monster on your field by up to 2, but you also would want to activate those effects to trigger the effect of your Inzektor monsters that activate when an Equip Card equipped to it is sent to the GY. It really all comes down to abusing the effect of Inzektor Dragonfly, which can Special Summon a different Inzektor monster from your deck each time one of its Equip Cards goes to the GY. A typical Inzektor combo will trigger Dragonfly up to 6-8 times in a single turn, especially with the help of Inzektor Giga-Mantis and Inzektor Giga-Weevil, which Special Summon an Inzektor monster when destroyed.

Now all of this Inzektor madness is well and good, but I want to take a moment to talk about how I’ve filled out the rest of the deck in 2023. First up is the P.U.N.K. engine, which consists of Emergency Teleport, Noh-P.U.N.K. Ze Amin, Noh-P.U.N.K. Foxy Tune, and Noh-P.U.N.K. Deer Note. If you Teleport out Ze Amin, you’re able to tutor Foxy and use its effect to Special Summon Deer. Amin and Deer can then Synchro Summon Diabolantis the Menacing Mantis, which will then get your pivotal copy of Inzektor Hornet sent to the GY. Since Diabolantis can treat itself as a Tuner, you even have easy access to Ultimaya Tzolkin with this combo, even before Normal Summoning! The second engine is the Bystials, which give you a set of monsters that can disrupt the opponent’s GY on the fly by banishing a LIGHT/DARK monster from it, as well as giving yourself even more material to work with. As for the last engine, “Infernoble Arms – Almace” and “Infernoble Arms – Durendal” each carry an effect to destroy themselves while equipped. In other words, you should read this as two more Dragonfly triggers, no other Inzektor monsters required.

What truly makes this deck special and stand out is that the Inzektor archetype has unparalleled access to one of the strongest floodgates in the game – Number 67: Pair-a-Dice Smasher. This Rank 5 Xyz monster can detach 2 materials to make each player roll two dice. The player with the higher total cannot activate monster effects or declare an attack, until the end of the next turn. If you make Pair-a-Dice with 3 material, you can make one of the results 7, giving your opponent a much higher chance of winning the dicerolls. If that’s not enough of a floodgate for you, this deck also has access to Herald of the Arc Light by Synchro Summoning using any Level 3 Inzektor and Infernoble Knight Oliver. When it’s sent to the GY, you can even tutor a copy of Sauravis, the Ancient and Ascended, giving your Dragonfly protection on the next turn from targeting card effects. Buzz off with this new and improved Inzektor Strategy in 2023!
