    Have you considered Heroics instead? Tribute Fodder, Warrior-Typed, More RotA Targets, and Rank 4 options (Not to mention TCG playable)

    well if an archetype only has, say 3 extra cards, how much purer can their extra get?

    Precisely, that's exactly what I was talking about, there's only a handful of decks that can fill the Extra with their stuff, but most of them won't, as it's not the best policy. So much for pure tho =I

    If it's just the thousand blades/halberd thing, I definitely think that the speedroid engine fares better as you don't have to risk attacks and turn 1 is better. Synchro access and rank 3 lets you knock out midfielder as an issue 99% of the time through opening beigomax to make invoker.

    I tend to just throw together things that work together. Usually it's an archetype base with anywhere from zero to several out-of-house options, but sometimes I just take bits and pieces from multiple archetypes whose effects mesh well. Sometimes there's either no archetype big enough to fill a deck (a true Normal Monster deck, i.e. not Igknight), or simply no archetype there ('EARTH Psychic-type' or 'EARTH Level 10 Machine-type').

    Alternately, a non-archetype deck altogether.
    I'm just like this.
    But I also like assembling several small engines and combine and mix them.

    This isn't a real question, you play the best version of a deck. If the best version of the deck is sticking only to one theme, then you play that, if the best version of the deck requires you to use an engine from a different group of cards, you play that.

    Intentionally gimping yourself and your deck just to stay "pure" is nonsense.

    Some of us don't play competitively.

    It's not about competitive vs not competitive. You can play Infernity with Dwarf if you really wanted to, but why would you. There will always be card choices that are superior for each specific deck, choosing the inferior option just because you're not "being competitive" is just silly.

    If you're playing gag decks or fan decks, that's a different story, but in that case, what's the point of this thread.
