Well, damn, this is cute. I remember back in my days at high school I was pretty interested in planets and outer space in general. I'm kinda outraged Pluto is not around xD. Yeah yeah, I know it was demoted from being a planet many years ago and, AFAIK, that hasn't been reversed. Back in my days, it was a planet, so the absence hurts.

The archetype is pretty simple, and partly effective, but has some important flaws. The equipments are all over the place, one or two for each planet. That's no good. Reason being, it is rather likely the equipment will be dead in the hand if you don't have quick access to the correspondent planet. Yep, there's a chain of Summoning -> Searching - Leaving the field - Special Summoning, but that's relatively brittle and easy to interrupt by the opponent. If it were me, I'd allow the whole archetype to be equipped by the moons. Evidently, this works against the flavour, having each satellite be equipped only to the planet it belongs IRL. The flavour is nice, in competitive environment, it is not.

Now, I have an issue with the big boys of the archetype. You might think their extremely powerful effects are balanced by the difficulty of Summoning, which is not the case. Neptune can be Summoned with great ease, in part due to "The Gas Giants". but on top of that, all of these guys activate their effects when "they leave the field", meaning, you can just use a Planet as material for a Link 1, Special Summon the next, use it along with the Link, Summon a Link 2, etc, until you get the Sun, which has an extremely overpowered effect that can kill the opponent in one shot at a bad moment. On top of that, we got the Milky Way. Even if the opponent survives the Sun's effect, you just make this card leave the field with another Summon, or heck, even a Compulsory or Dark Hole will do), Summon Milky Way, banish all monsters in the opponent's Extra Deck and inflict 7500 (max.) dmg in the process.

In short, the big boys need harder clauses. Something like: If this card leaves the field, except if it is used as material for a Summon should help with the balance of the archetype.

I see you're new to the site, so welcome and enjoy your stay n.n. Remember that all critique is given with good intention so your cards are the best self possible :)

@Rayfield Lumina Yep thx for the critique. I have always been a huge fan of space in general, so I thought, why not make an whole Archetype about it. Looking back at it, maybe i should of added a harsher restriction to Neptune, since that card is needed to summon the sun, which is the main win condition of this archetype, and the milky way card is more of a win more card than anything else. I like your method of "If this card leaves the field, except if it is used as material for a Summon", That would make the planets not float so easily. For Neptune, it should definitely be "Can only be Special Summoned by the effect of "The Planet Uranus" and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways", just like the Sun.

You're welcome. And yeah, that should probably help a lot with the floating, making the overall archetype more balanced.

Also, as I was saying earlier, making the equipment so they can be given to any planet would be very useful in general. I can understand why you wouldn't change this, as it goes against the reality of the cards, but I'd probably go wilder and make something like "Vagrant Satellite - Insert name for the Satellite here". As if the planet's gravity caught the satellite and that's why it becomes equipped to it. Note that I'm not saying just make all equipment generic, or we'll have Neptune attacking twice with an effect equal to Phobos xD. You can play to avoid this kind of situation, with stuff such as "Can only be equipped to a "Planet" monster. It is unaffected by your opponent's monster effects. If the monster equipped with this card has 2000 or less ATK, it can make a second attack during each Battle Phase." Ah well, just some funny suggestions n.n
