"Sin" Archetype (My first post here)


Recommended Posts

This is my new attempt at a custom Archetype, the "Sin" archetype. A long time ago, in an account i no longer have access to i had a 50 card archetype, the Majestic archetype. After 3 days of trying to find that account, i said screw it. Let's make a new one. Thus, "Sin" was born. It's more like an anime-style villain archetype, not too viable for competitive use, but it could be played as a rouge deck (although i think it can be too busted, like most villain decks.... Yes, im talking to you Anime Orichalcos). My main goal was to give the cards appropriate effects that fit their theme (for example, check Mammon and Leviathan. Very broken, but thematically appropriate xD). I'd love to hear some feedback on this project, every kind of comment is appreciated. Btw, this is still a WIP, and some cards are hard to understand, and not properly written. Let's get started. 

 

Den-of-Sin.jpg.f6b5045b878688c913cfe3a0e549d4e1.jpg
Den of Sin
-Field Spell
-This card cannot be removed from the field, except by the effects of "Birth of The Paragon" and "Divine Takeover". (author note: "Divine Takeover" is basically a counter on this card, and a part of the "Virtuous" archetype i plan on making).  You can pay 500 LP: Send 1 "Sin" card from either your hand or Deck to the GY: If that card was a monster, Special Summon it to your side of the field. You can tribute 1 "Sin" monster from your side of the field and if the tributed monster was Level 9 or higher: Gain LP equal to the level of the monster x100. You can use each effect once per turn. As long as this card remains face-up on your side of the field: Level 9 or above "Sin" monsters cannot be banished.

**DISCLAIMER**: I literally have no idea how to phrase this card's effect properly to match the rulings, so i'm just trying to explain the effect to the best of my abilities. If there are people that still don't understand, imagine Regigigas from Pokemon and it's effect, Slow Start. . This written effect is....... a mess. If anyone can make a properly written text of this effect, please do. I'd appreciate it a lot.

ok i made the deck whats the ratios?

 

1st of all, this deck is WIP. 2nd, i didn't do any play testing to measure ratios and viability. But. Put all monsters to 1, Hellena at 2, 1 Terraforming 3 Den 1 Metaverse, 3 Dogma 1 Bound 3 Bargain 3 Tribunal 1 Necro 3 Destruction 3 Confronting 2 Dawn 3 Birth 2 Mardorias. That's just my thought at first glance. Don't take it for granted and toy around with it. Also, put any staples you wish. GL

Since you seem to know lot's of things in here, do you know of a way to make link cards with YCM's font for couple cards for the 2nd set? I've tried some alternatives but i can't stand the fake looking font.
Also, still waiting for a real review on the cards xD

The deck is overpowered and not the good kind. The deck revolves around Den of Sin which is problematic as the odds of you drawing it before your opponent wipes you out because you have no monsters on the field is pretty low. You only get FIVE monster slots so abaddon's 7 monsters summoned and you win effect is useless as you will be three cards short. The sloth sin guy's effect needs grammar checked but that's it. Remove the authors note from Den of Sin. I see how your name is the same as the Sin of Lust's name does that happen to have anything to do with your IRL persona.

Abaddon does not require all monsters to be on the field. He requires the effect to be activated 7 times. There is a huge diff. Also, this deck as i said is of the anime villain style, not meant for competitive use. There are quite a few search cards in the archetype (mostly in the 2nd set), and Den of Sin is completely searchable because it counts as a "Sin" card.
And, i know it's overpowered. It's meant to be that way. Nevertheless, thank you for the short review :)

Your best bet would probably be trying to sign up for the new card maker beta test.

You can sign up in the thread here; it has Pendulum and Link templates as well as stuff for tokens and even some anime only stuff like "Legendary Dragons" or "Dark Synchros".  It's pretty flexible while also trying to stick as closely to the correct aesthetics as possible.  All you need to do is go into the thread and express that you want to join the beta.

~~~

Sorry I hadn't been able to review before.  I looked through some of the cards and they're fine.  I'll be honest, if the balance of the cards is good, it actually tends to be hard for me to make many comments.  :P

My strength comes from seeing how well these could potentially mix with irl strategies, but most of the cards are pretty self contained.  The seven sins are impossible to summon without the field spell so their strategy is pretty linear.

The sin spirits intrigue me though.  Since they support "DARK 'Spirit' monsters", you can combo them with the irl cards "Dark Spirit of Malice" and "Dark Spirit of Banishment".  You can use them as a mini engine for Link Summons or for Ranks 3/4.  However, I think they would work better by putting your sin spirits into a deck with the Dark Spirits rather than the other way around (Malice & Banishment only support Level 8 fiend monsters, not Level 8 and above).

Other than that, lots of banishing and trying to get the appropriate stuff in the GY.  They could probably use something like an in-archetype version of Allure of Darkness (Discard 1 "Sin" monster that cannot be Normal Summoned/Set; draw 2 cards - something like that) so you don't brick by having too many unsummonable monsters in your hand.

Oh these Spirits seem interesting, especially since i have some LVL8 "Sin" monsters that don't have a Summoning Condition (they are all fiends). Also, nice idea for a "Sin" Allure, will try to implement it swiftly. Overall, thank you for your review (part 2 coming as well)
