I'm creating a new deck with a rather interesting twist -in my opinion: May times before, we have seen "evil" archetypes take control of the best and brightest from other archetypes/series and corrupt them for their own purposes (i.e. Shaddoll, Evilswarm, and Malefic); but how often have we seen an archetype or even a series of cards that do the opposite and bring lost and rejected monsters together in order to find the real power they can possess? I plan to create such an archetype but because I don't play the actual game too much, I need help putting this together and so I''m turning to you guys for help. In the description below, please post your suggestions for Yu-Gi-Oh monsters that seem to have no practical purpose for being in a deck and/or are in desperate need of an upgrade. I will make a list below of all the monster that shall become part of this project, in order to keep track of how well this deck might work out.
Original Monster Name: Larvae Moth
Reason for update: Seems to be considered a joke by a lot of fans and has even worse stats than the monsters used to summon it.
Original Monster Name: Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth
Reason for update: A real hassle to summon and no clear cut benefits for your hard work.
Original Monster Name: Spirit of the Pot of Greed
Reason for update: This monster's sole effect relies on a card that can no longer be used in the game, and although Avatar of the Pot has decent stats to make up for his now useless effect, SPG isn't so lucky.
Original Monster Name: Dark Artist
Reason for update: Nobody seems to be able to figure out how this card's personal Defense halving ability can be useful. Some have suggested using Reverse Trap but it has been clearly stated that that card doesn't work on halving/doubling moves.
Original Monster Name: Boar Soldier
Reason for update: Granted, you could use the self-destructing effect to fulfill certain card conditions and other cards can remove him of his self-debuffing shackles but chances are that this little piggy isn't beating too much on his own and thus has been looked down upon by parts of the community.
NOTE 1: If you can, I would also appreciate it if you could explain to me your reasoning for why the monster is useless.
NOTE 2: Just because a monster doesn't have an effect, doesn't automatically make it useless.
NOTE 3: Please DO NOT use the comments as a battle field with other people about your personal opinion on a card. A civilized debate, however, is fine.
