Please be nice to new players. Don't expect everyone to be an expert, that is why they are asking for advice, after-all.

Archfiends? Or a Guardian Eatos build?

I had tried to build a Metaphys deck, but I didn't get it and abandoned it immediately.
There's only one out of all of them you can actually Normal Summon to get them going.
Like, if you don't draw Metaphys Ragnarok first hand what do you do?
Most the rest of them are like Level 7+
Metaphys Armed Dragon is a Level 7 Normal Monster for who knows what reason.
Metaphys Horus is a Synchro that has an effect if you made it with a Normal non-Tuner, but Horus is a Level 6.
Why? Ragnarok, the Tuner, is a Level 4, so you need a Level 2 non-Tuner? Yet there is no Metaphys Level 2 monster.
Then there's the fact that they keep banishing themselves to get their effects, which keeps your field at a disadvantage,
and getting them back from being banished is a pain.

I want to like them, but their whole playstyle is so convoluted.
It's like a theme of mid-bosses, but no lower levels, and a lot of work for effects that aren't really worth it.
Maybe there's a reason I've never run into anyone playing them.

You know, tonite I played a theme that actually made me happy (and came close to beating a modern Buster Blader Deck).

I purposely handcuffed myself to strictly pre-GX cards! :mrgreen:
I didn't need a thousand complicated OP effects per card.
I did just fine with classic beaters that had 1 or two decent effects each, and even a few vanillas.
No 20 card turns, no Extra Deck (or even Fusion Deck), just good ol' Yu-Gi-Oh!

I just looked through each list of cards for every classic booster here on the guide,
and when I saw a card I liked and thought I could use, I added it.
When I hit 40, I started replacing cards for better ones, and stopped after Flaming Eternity.
Even used the appropriate artwork for the ones that have new artwork.

It made me happy, Yu-Gi-Oh felt like a game again, not a chore.

Pretty much what I said.
All the best (and currently legal) from the first series from every set released pre-GX.
I suppose it wouldn't be a theme as we modernly think of it, but I consider it an old school deck.
It probably resembles what you'd make if this was 2004, but you were somehow still
familiar with 2017's Forbidden List and erratas.

I might make a second old school deck, but more focused on Relinquished and BLS-Envoy.
lol, One of my opponents suggested Instant Fusion, but I let him know it didn't exist. :mrgreen:

I did manage to beat Destiny Heros, and came close to beating some "Grass is Always Greener" Lightsworn concoction, so old school cards can still hold their own. :D
