Default An insect/plant deck?

Would it be possible to run an insect/plant deck somehow? I know neither has much support but both benefit from the forest field card (old I know, but it's nice to go old school). I know of c0ckroach knight but I can't really think of anything else.

Insect Knight and the Ultimate Insects would help with the Insect Side, but I don't know about anything else. I'm a dinosaur, not an insect or plant! (This is supposed to be a joke)

Fairy King Trusdale would be great in a insect plant deck, along with arsenal bug. I can see another gravity bind deck coming out of this.
P.S Insect Knight rocks, I have one in my deck
P.P.S DNA Surgery is great with Fairy King Trusdale

I was thinking more along the lines of a beatdown version of this lol. It would be kinda interesting because insects are the original "swarm" type mons lol

well you have your plant-type monster "prickle fairy" which protects insects (it is a common in IOC) I can't think of too many good beatdown plants... arsenal bugs and insect knight come to mind for beatdown also, in the set after EEN there are some pretty awesome beatstick insect-types. Plants will hopefully get a boost in a new set soon. Until then you're limited to mostly insects.

As for beatdown Plant types, the best you'll probably get is Homunculus the Alchemic Being (1800 ATK), and Vampire Orchis & Lekunga (1700 ATK).

insect queen and insect princess are both great with DNA surgery, and insect barrier. Forest and Homunculus are good too. Fairy king trusdale is great for your deck if you can get your hands on.

You actually might be better off with a "Forest Deck" to include a combination of insects, plants, beasts, and beast-warriors. They could work well together, but you'ld have to be really creative.

Some examples: Insect Knight, Arsenal Bug, Ultimate Insects, Homunculus, Fairy King Truesdale, Nimble Momonga, Enraged Battle Ox, Big Koala + Des Kangaroo = Master of Oz, Metal Armored Bug, Trojan Horse, etc.

i would either go either insect or plant not both (except for prickle fairy in the insect deck if you're going to use DNA surgery)...like comet said, maybe a water-plant deck? You could go with A legendary ocean, Truesdale, Homunculus, LORD POISON, Lekunga, Gravity Bind / Level Limit Area B, Mother Grizzly and Warrior of Atlantis. With Truesdale and ALO on the field, Lord Poison becomes a 2200 3 star that special summons a plant from your graveyard when its destroyed in battle. and level limit area B works b/c ALO makes all of your worthwhile cards into 3 stars, and anyway, truesdale has to be in defense mode for its effect to work...if you're gonna build a plant deck, that's the way to go i think...there are so few plant cards.......

I think this idea is pretty good, it just might not be as competitive as you want it to be. At most, it might be tier 2.0-1.5, on the same terms as a water deck, which are alright in their time.
