Gathering of the Particularly UnPeculiar
Spell - Normal
Add 8 Normal Monsters from your Deck to your hand with different Levels. You cannot Special Summon Normal Monsters the turn you activate this effect. At the end of the turn you activated this card, discard your entire hand. You can only activate 1 "Gathering of the Particularly Peculiar" per turn.
// So instant meme Deck creator here. Might be wondering why you discard your entire hand at the end of the turn when this card is so stupid to begin with. This is because for the most part, you're not using these cards in your hand. If anything, you want these cards in the Graveyard for combos later on. The restrictions on this card is low, other than having to run 8 Normal monsters with different names and levels, which sounds incredibly inefficient if you care about Deck consistency at all.
This will be the DPR's version of Heart of the Underdog. It doesn't take a turn to setup, it guarantees 8 cards, allows you to run Spell/Traps. Your only screw up here is you HAVE to run a Deck with 5-7 particularly useless cards other than being beaters or walls.
Some potential changes is that I might add field and GY. I acknowledge how crazy that sounds, but if you're running a Deck, you're running 3 of these. If you're running 3 of these, the only way to do that is to run a Deck of ENTIRELY Normal Monster, which isn't what I want and isn't how it should work. Running 8 different Normals, half of which have to be Tributed and are otherwise dead in hand is already a troubling stunt to accomplish, and the card could still be played around if your opponent has banish tools. There's also the idea that Gemini monsters could be run since you can fetch them out of the GY, which sounds like fun but not broken because you know, Gemini monsters. If I do this, the add 8 to hand card will become playable, which sound INCREDIBLY dangerous, but I think this is a way more fun version of Heart of the Underdog, so yay.
Only thing I'm not budging on changing is the mandatory 8. There are no Level 9 or higher Normals, so good luck with that.
EDIT: Kinda just realized Pendulum/Normal monsters exist... yay.
Not sure if this is too much of a problem, since your best scales that you can search are 2 and 8, and those take away your Level 4 and 7. That means you're left with a Level 1 and 2 in your hand, and a 3, 5, and 6 on board. Link 3 could be good, although not sure how practical this would be. Wonder if there's another not card killing restriction I can add.
