Default Weakest Archetypes

We have discussed the better archetypes, we have discussed the archetypes that are getting to the top, and the ones we would like to improve.

But what are the ones that have never been good, and that will probably never be good?

From personal experience... Neo-Spacians. Here I was, ready to summon Neos and contact fuse like crazy. Summoning Neos is easy, but having a hand full of Neo-Spacians sucks. Let alone the CHRYSALI. Ugh.

Dark Scorpion is by far one of the worst archtypes ever. They have barely any support even though they are dark monsters.

I'm not trolling, I'm telling it how it is. People got it in their heads that they would be good. Why I don't know.

It doesn't take a genius to keep an eye on the OCG meta, which is weaker than our meta anyway. If Dragunity can't top there, there was no way in hell it would win anything here.

I said that before their debut at the YCS. Oh look, whatd'ya know, they flopped massively. The only reason they topped was due to the sheer number of people using them.

It's so easy to kill Dragunities it's not even funny. Turning basic staples like MST into +1s and relying on Stardust as your only method of defense in a format where Legendary Six Samurai - Charlie Sheen is tier 1 is asking for trouble.

Like I said, it's not surprising how badly they did. If they top, the players who used them must either be lucky as hell or skillful as who knows what.

Not meta, obviously, but decent nonetheless.

I messed around with them on the video game when they first came out, and all I could get them to do was generate D-hero Plasma fodder. I haven't looked at them since.
