- Sample Insect Drain Deck and Strategies -
       To make this work, you need to build up your Insect's Power as soon as possible. Your
best shot will be Acid Crawler at first turn, all you need is 1 shot from this card then everything will start to Power-up!. Place your Acid Crawlers at the left most channel for better performance.
     - Fake Traps can also give you an early boost if you have it on the field.
     - Magical Thorn is also good but I prefer Fake Traps, your choice still. Only place 2 permanent
Spells though to give way to your other spells.

     - Bladefly card has the lowest Power so place it on the right most channel to get some boosts
from the first 2 channels.
     - Drain decks usually have low Life Points, so you must finish the duel as fast as possible.

Other Notes
     - Best used against decks with "Backfire" effects like Dragon decks!
     - Also good for defeating Dark decks that commonly have "Sorrow" effects.
     - A very dangerous deck for lesser DP Empathy 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!
