- Sample Insect-Drain Deck and  Strategies -
       To make this work, you need to build up your Insect's Power as soon as possible. Use your
spells to deal direct damages to your opponent's Life Points for an easy Power gain. Finish
the duel before your opponent depletes your low Life points!
     - Bladefly card has the least Power so place it on the right most channel to get some boosts
from the first 2 channels.
     - If you have Acid Crawler, place it at the left most channel for better performance.

     - Best used against decks with "Backfire" effects like Dragon decks!

Using Side Deck Cards

     - If your opponent's deck is using a common Monster Type or Attribute, Check the Shop
for "Annihilate" spell cards that can destroy that Monster Type or Attribute.
     - Example: "Exile of the Wicked" spell card annihilates or destroys all Fiends!
