Runick Sprawer (Spright Krawler)
Hi there! I'm back with another deck in a series where I try to make as many Krawler builds as I can, mixing archetypes and splashing engines to come up with creative and interesting combos! This build is similar to my last one (Spright/Krawler), but it uses the Runick engine to ensure access to Lv 2 mons, as well as providing several removal and counter-play tools. This build was one inspired by a user's deck from the Krawler Discord, but with a few additions and a few removals. I'll be going over the pros and cons of the cards in this deck, an explanation of the ratios, and a short combo guide down below. I appreciate you taking the time to read this!
This deck has 3 basic cores. The Krawler core (including Girsu) uses our normal summon and can get us to Utopic Draco Future, Winda, and/or a set Deus X-Krawler (note: I'm not currently playing Winda, but you can, and I have included the package in the Side Deck). Girsu is a very juicy target for Ash Blossom, but if they get Ash'd, we can still combo off if we have Soma, a Spright, and/or a Runick card in hand. Krawlers have great recursability and let us continue to make plays regardless of how long the game goes. Sprights need no introduction, but I'll just quickly say that their Extra Deck recursion and Main Deck removal and counter options are a welcome thing in most decks that can run them. Runicks are being used here not for their notorious deck-out potential, but rather for their removal, destruction, and ability to summon a Lv 2 Extra Deck monster! Any Runick card plus any Spright combo-starter lets us pop fully off!
I won't go over the basic choices in this deck like the individual Krawlers or Runick cards, as they are fairly standard. For Sprights, I have chosen to run 3 Jets and 2 Starters. Normally this ratio might be reversed, or run at 3 a-piece, but I've found that Starter has limited uses after the first two turns, and it is a hard once-per-turn, so drawing 2 often feels bad. The higher number of Jets is to give us more Lv 2 special-summonable bodies for our combo lines. We are on 2 Survivor and 2 Small World. Survivor locks us into Link monsters, and is usually only usable at the end of a combo, but it does fill the GY with Runick spells that we can then shuffle back with Runick Fountain, and it can get Mind Meld into the GY. Small World is an amazing draw for this deck when we often want to see both Girsu and Soma in our opening hands, but it is also a hard once-per-turn. We run 3 Mind Meld, as we can mill it, send it to GY with Girsu, or discard it with Hugin's effect. I'm running the Ghostrick / UDF engine in this deck, but you could take it out to focus more on Link monsters and up the Survivor count to 3. I'm only on 2 Runick Fountain as it is searchable off of any Runick spell, but playing it at 3 is a very strong option, too, as drawing it and any Runick spell lets us start digging for cards. We are running 2 Spright Smashers to counter Mystic Mine and floodgates, but this can be sided for better options depending on the matchup. I would love to run Dharc and Qualiark, but I simply did not have room in the Extra Deck.
Now for some combos!

Then, special-summon Iblee with Gigantic by detatching Hugin. Use Iblee and the Lv 2 Krawler to make Elf, summoning Iblee to the opponent's field. Summon Jet from hand, searching Starter (either use now to summon Carrot/Red, or on the opponent's turn). Summon back a card with Elf, then use Mind Meld to set a Lv 2 Krawler from deck.

Thank you for your time in reading this! I hope you will be able to take something away from this, and hopefully it will inspire you in your own builds! I appreciate the help of everyone on the Krawler Discord who has helped me not just on this build, but on several of the Krawler builds I've posted, and I will be giving names/tags of those individuals if I'm able to obtain their permission. If you have any ideas for this or another build, please leave a comment down below! I'd love to hear what you have to say! Have a great day!
