A brand new Selection Pack, Invincible Raid, has been added to the game, bringing with it the Beetrooper and Dinomorphia archetypes to the game. It also adds support for the D/D, Nordic, Crystal Beast, Ursarctic, Ogdoadic, and Magnet Warrior archetypes. Let's take a look at each of them and see what's new!
The majority of the archetypes in this article are already in the game, and as such can be obtained through Secret Packs. We recommend spending your Gems on those if you want to play with any archetype that wasn't introduced in Invincible Raid. To learn how Secret Packs work, check out our dedicated guide.
Our first brand new archetype is composed of insects in knightly armor riding on top of larger insects. This archetype is focused on swarming the field with Insect-type Monsters and building up towards their big boss monsters, like Ultra Beetrooper Absolute Hercules and Giant Beetrooper Invincible Atlas.

In addition to the cards listed here, there are 4 more: Beetrooper Light Flapper, Beetrooper Assault Roller (R), Heavy Beetrooper Mighty Neptune (SR), and Beetrooper Fly & Sting (SR). These cards are unavailable in the pack, and are instead obtained through their Solo missions, so don't waste your CP crafting them.

The only other new archetype to the game, Dinomorphia, is filled with human with dinosaur-like characteristics. The main strategy of the archetype is to bring the player's life-points to low levels using its numerous Traps, in order to activate powerful effects. If you're planning on making this deck, be aware that one of its boss monsters, Rextrem, is NOT in the pack and will be added later.

This one's a little... complicated. The main archetype is actually D/D, with most of its Monsters being inspired by various monsters from mythology, except for the "D/D Savant" cards, which represent important real-life historical figures. Its boss monsters fall under the "D/D/D" sub-archetype, inspired by various real-world conquerors. Lastly, the "Dark Contract" cards make up most of their Spells and Traps.

An anime archetype inspired heavily by Norse mythology. The main deck cards fall under the "Nordic" umbrella, with most of the cards in the pack being either "Nordic Beast" Monsters or "Nordic Relic" Spells and Traps. You can only get about a third of the cards the archetype has access to in-game from this pack. The only boss monster included in this pack is Odin, with the other two being Thor and Loki.

Our second anime archetype on the list, this one filled with animals combined with various precious gems. This deck focuses on filling your board with the titular Crystal Beasts, who have the ability to be placed in the Spell and Trap zone when destroyed, in order to summon their boss monster, Rainbow Dragon, or one of its variants, Dark or Overdragon. The only new card in the pack is Crystal Beast Rainbow Dragon, which helps you get to the boss monsters easily (though none of the boss monsters are in the pack).

|Crystal Beast Cobalt Eagle||Effect Monster||N|
|Crystal Beast Rainbow Dragon||Effect Monster||UR||NEW|
|Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus||Effect Monster||R|

An archetype of WATER Beast and Beast-Warrior monsters inspired by the Ursa Major constellation. Most of their monsters have a strong theming around the number 7, with most of their Monsters having either 700 ATK or DEF. They're a Synchro archetype, but their monsters are actually summoned by making sure the Level difference between a Tuner and a non-Tuner Synchro Monster is exactly 7. The pack is lacking quite a number of cards from the archetype. The only new card in the pack is the Continuous Spell Ursarctic Radiation.
|Ursarctic Megatanus||Effect Monster||N|
|Ursarctic Miktanus||Effect Monster||N|
|Ursarctic Grand Chariot||Synchro Monster||SR|
|Ursarctic Radiation||Continuous Spell||R||NEW|
|Ursarctic Quint Charge||Normal Trap||N|
A series of LIGHT and DARK Reptile monsters, with each monster having a pair of the opposite attribute. The deck revolves around sending the monsters to the GY and Special Summoning from there. Only one new card, the Continuous Spell Ogdoadic Serpent Strike.
|Aleirtt, the Ogdoadic Dark||Effect Monster||N|
|Amunessia, the Ogdoadic Queen||Effect Monster||N|
|Aron, the Ogdoadic King||Effect Monster||SR|

Last anime archetype on our list, and it's a blast from the past! The point of this deck is to summon Alpha, Beta, and Gamma to then combine them into Valkyrion the Magna Warrior. The new card in the pack is Epsilon The Magnet Warrior, which should make getting to Valkyrion easier.
|Alpha The Magnet Warrior||Normal Monster||N|
|Beta The Magnet Warrior||Normal Monster||N|
|Gamma the Magnet Warrior||Normal Monster||N|
|Valkyrion the Magna Warrior||Effect Monster||R|
|Epsilon The Magnet Warrior||Effect Monster||N||NEW|
