With Parasitic Paranoid, both of these cards became slightly more viable. But are either of them playable?

 

To be honest, I'm really torn as to which one exactly is better. Card A is slightly more accurate to the lore imo, and easier to get out, but Card B isn't too hard to get out, really, and that minimum 1200 ATK boost is nothing to scoff at. Both of their effects are rather situational, with the latter's being more effective but a million times more restricted/restrictive. Neither of them is specifically supported, so I can't comment on interactions, except perhaps Insect's swarming slightly suffering for Card B to be too viable.

 

After some deliberation, I've decided that the protection on Card A combined with how easily it comes out trumps Card B. Vote to Card A.

So both of you retained Metal Armored Bug, eh? This should be interesting.

 

Card A

 

The GY requirement for Insects is a bit high (then again, Insects can usually fill the grave fast anyway, so it's probably not too bad), but at least it's a Semi-Nomi and has decent effect protection. Granted, targeting removal is far more common nowadays but you can at least avoid getting sweep removed or something. The double attacking effect isn't too special, but it fits the original card. Can't argue with getting rid of 2 monsters while being immune to Mirror Force or something (like someone actually runs it after VRAINS showcases it...)

 

Card B

 

The stat boost isn't something to laugh at (possible 2K if you can summon something like a Krawler Link or w/e on a full board), but problem is that Insects don't really swarm that well yet. I guess Krawlers MIGHT like this card since they can generally swarm and can fulfill its summon requirements, plus gives them a nice power bonus. That being said, outside the aforementioned Krawlers (idk if Inzektors were ever able to amass 5 monsters in their prime, for lack of other Insect decks worth talking about), pulling off the field wipe effect is pretty difficult. Also, it's once per Duel, compared to Fandra for Skyfangs which is hard OPT, just negates damage to the opponent for the turn, and the archetype can actually field 5 monsters. Then again, that requires DIFFERENT names, whereas this just requires 5 Insects no matter what their names are or where they are. (If your opponent is playing mirror Insect or you have DNA Surgery up, then sure, you can fire this off easier). Otherwise...yeah.

 

=====

Voting A since it's more consistent for Insects and doesn't require as much commitment; given their state at the moment.
