Infestation Infection continues Swarm support, and is a Continuous Trap. This card likes to recycle your Swarms. It lets you take a Swarm Monster from your Hand, or face-up from your Field, shuffle it back to the Deck, and add another Swarm Monster to your Hand. It's obviously a combo card, but I think it's one the Deck can do without. Is it one you NEED...probably not, to be perfectly honest. But I certainly wouldn't fault the player for using one either. It's just very vulnerable as Continuous needs to stay on the Field.

Ratings: (Swarm)

Infestation Infection is one of those cards that should be good, but won't see too much play. It's a Continuous Trap Card, and once per turn you can send an Evilswarm monster you control or from your hand and back into the deck to get an Evilswarm monster from your deck to your hand. On paper it seems good, but it has a few things going against it. It's a Continuous Trap, so it needs to be on the field for a while for you to really get the most out of it and in this format of destroy, destroy, destroy.....you'll be lucky to to use it once before it's destroyed with all the Mystical Space Typhoons and Heavy Storm going around. Also, in a top deck situation, you don't want to see this pop up when you don't want or need it. A good card, but not in this format.

Traditional: 2
Advanced: 2.5

Today we are looking at: Infestation Infection

"Once per turn: You can shuffle 1 "lswarm" monster from your hand or face-up from your side of the field into the Main Deck; add 1 "lswarm" monster from your Deck to your hand. "

This is an interesting spin of the normal search card effects. Instead of trading infestation infection (infection) for a card, you get to use it once per turn to trade an lswarm from your hand, or field, with one in your deck. I think it's neat, but would probably not be anything more than a one-of tech.

Advanced: 3/5
Traditional: 1/5

Welcome to another card review. Today we’re looking at another support good support card for Evilswarms.

Infestation Infection
Continuous Trap
Once per turn: You can shuffle 1 "lswarm" monster from your hand or face-up from your side of the field into the Main Deck; add 1 "lswarm" monster from your Deck to your hand.

This card is actually pretty good. It’s kind of versatile because you can use it to put your unneeded heliotropes back into your deck as well as chain this card in response to your opponent’s monster removal cards. This card adds more consistency to Evilswarms and it is easily searchable with Evilswarm Ophion. It has so many uses and can help Evilswarm decks get to Evilswarm Kerykeion faster. The only problem with this trap is that it cannot be used by returning an Xyz monster like Ophion or bahamut back to the Extra deck. The monster has to be returned to the deck to be able to activate this card. This can be a problem but I definitely suggest trying this out in Evilswarm decks. It isn’t a must in the deck but it’s still a nice option to consider for the deck.

Advanced: 3.5/5
Traditional: 2/5
Art: 3/5
