This was a fun little thing I made based on ratatouille. It's a fusion summoning archetype based around sort of a reverse sylvan, this involving the bottom of the deck and calling it correctly. Please tell me your thoughts on this, I would like to make it better.

Hm, the bottom of the Deck. We don't have many cards that interact with that; Skulldeat, Sylvans and perhaps a little Gishki, but that's it. Not many potential broken combinations, not much to look at in the current meta; let's go in as a basically archetypal set!

 

Filet eats into your hand advantage to Summon it, and doesn't provide any immediate pay-off. Sets up for the rest of the cards, but needs said other cards to be live. French Onion's searching...not really great for the archetype. I mean, it shuffles after you get to add (don't force it not to shuffle though, bad idea) so why it instead allow you to draw 1 card from the bottom of the Deck? It will basically be a search anyway. Don't know why Pork Chops lets you draw a card from the top, but there's no reason why not to, I guess? Not seeing too much hand advantage at the moment. Perfect Sauce, on the other hand, is that missing link, giving you an immediate plus from your Deck AND from being used to Fusion Summon. Very helpful for the archetype. Fancy Spices does the same thing except differently, so plusses are always nice. Really love Fresh Herb's second effect, granting you a search while messing up your potential order in a not really too hurtful way. I can't say I completely understand the first effect though; could you explain it? 

 

I love the mechanic with the Fusion Spell. I would, however, suggest wording akin to this:

 

"If this card was sent to the GY because it was activate this turn: You can Set this card from your GY to your Spell & Trap Zone, but place it on the bottom of your Deck when it leaves the field."

 

Yes, it's slightly more vulnerable to removal, but this way if you keep activating the card, the effect can stack much more easily.

 

Plongeur isn't very...field remaining, if you catch my drift. He doesn't have much staying power, and exists purely as a ladder; as most Link 2s generally are. I would suggest nerfing him a bit, and knocking down him to a Link 2 as well. I mean, his ATK is more of a Link 2 atm...but if you do this, you won't be able to get 3 Link monsters. Hm. Just make him be able to stand on his own two fee then. Your next two monsters, Commis and Station Worker simply work as means to get to the stronger monsters. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, just when you purely have support, you don't really have means of removal or any of the monster's own unique quirks in terms of playstyle. They just Summon and search. Apprentice Gourmet is a little more interesting, but probably doesn't need the burn on the last effect. Banishing face-down is a bad anyway. Stat boost is underwhelming, as it doesn't stack and is a miniscule amount anyway. I would suggest keeping the concept and either buffing it or letting it stack in some way. Saucier is a great means of removal, something the Deck was lacking, but its specific Summoning requirements hurt it a bit much, imo. Turn one of the ingredients into a "Gourmet" monster, or a "Gourmet" Fusion Monster, as chance are you've already used up your Ingredients and Dishes and such for your other 4 Fusion Monsters AND your Link monster. Main problem I have with Sous Chef and Head Chef is that...why would I ever Summon Head Chef his normal way when I could just ladder with Sous Chef? Yes, if I have no cards in my hand and just happen to control those 5 monsters, then I won't be able to Sous Chef, but in most other scenarios, in fact, in all of them, Sous Chef eats less resources than Head Chef! Also, for a boss, Head Chef is conspicuously lacking any sort of removal or protection. In fact, none of these cards have protection, and are easily dealt with, and outside of Saucier, don't really hurt your opponent. This deck doesn't have a "win condition" or anything like it. It sort of just combos until it peters out.

 

For the Field Spell, can't you just provide protection to all Gourmet Fusion Monsters? I mean, none of the Fusion Monsters related to the archetype aren't part of it, so you don't have to do those card text shenanigans. Dish Orders is a fun card to use, but I don't think you you need that super hard OPT. Why not:

 

"If this card was not sent to the GY this turn: You can banish this card from your GY, then declare 1 “Gourmet” card name; if the declared card is on the bottom of your deck, you can add that card to your hand, then draw 1 card. You can only use each effect of "Gourmet Dish Orders" once per turn."

 

This way, you can use the card in tandem with itself late game, but you can't immediately use its GY effect after its Summon effect. So, one way SHOPT, I guess? Opening doesn't need that Main Phase 1 restriction; the following Summoning limitation is bad enough. But really, it's not an altogether bad card.

 

My main problem with this set is that it doesn't really do anything. It combos, gets out monsters with decent ATK, but it can't really spam them because of Link Format, and if it does manage to...you can only hope your opponent doesn't have a field, because you only have one cards that deals with removal, and all of your cards are vulnerable to every form of removal. Also, while it's easy to keep the ball rolling with the Fusion Monsters and spam out your monsters from your Deck, your main Deck monsters don't really have that necessary speed to get out said monsters, so it's only with very good hands that you can get anywhere.
