The Dogmatika theme's been a golden goose of sorts for content creators, but that's only because there hasn't been a perfect deck to play them in. Today, MBT's looking to change that by showing off Traptrix Dogmatika, a deck created by Nhymnim and now remixed by the 'testing master' himself. 

Combining the powers of the Traptrix monsters with Dogmatika Punishment gives you yet another way to set up your choice of El Shaddoll Construct, Elder Entity N'tss, or Titaniklad the Ash Dragon!  If you want to see this deck in action, dig up your Gravedigger's Trap Hole and check out the video below!

There are currently more Dogmatika deck variants than people wishing for a Forbidden List update, but this is definitely one of the more interesting versions.  Dogmatika Punishment might be the best card in the theme and having more ways to search it is definitely a plus. Traptrix Sera's a certified home-run with this strategy because it adds yet another benefit to activating Dogmatika Punishment, helping with its Extra Deck drawback. As you saw in the matches today, this strategy can be 'good,' but it's just another deck waiting for Crystron HalqifibraxLinkross to get banned.

While we wait for that inevitable Forbidden List update, check out the deck below and get those Traptrix Seras before the competition wises up!
