Insecticons

Insecticons won’t go away. They are a very strong aggro deck and can be an annoying blue deck. Here is my take on the 2 colors as of 01/02/2020

AGGRO – ORANGE

Insecticon Skrapnel – Insecticon Leader // 7 stars
Barrage – Merciless Insecticon // 7 stars
Kickback – Cunning Insecticon // 5 stars
Ransack – Insecticon Commando // 6 stars

2x I Still Function!
2x One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall

Nightbird brings annoying passive damage as well as Opportune Offensive for the bugs.

Raider Kickback gets flipped to bot mode once (don’t forget to apply a damage when you flip a blue when attacking with an insecticon! The odds of it not happening are super low!), then you should only be flipping Barrage for the rest of the game. Flip Nightbird only if it is an immense benefit to your gamestate. Making your opponent question their action plays is always fun.

Quartermaster can shift all upgrades but remember you only have 3/8 sides that are ranged and 3/8 sides that are melee.

Laser Cutlass is primarily for Kickback and Raider Kickback. Thermal Weaponry is primarily for Barrage’s bot mode.
