In a nutshell, this archetype was something I generated out of a randomizer I wrote in Java a good while back; basically, generate a random Type, Attribute, summon mechanic, speed of summoning and even stat spread. The actual gimmick is up to my discretion.
What came out here is a general result of it; WIND Psychics that focus on quick Link Summoning and having lower DEF but relatively high ATK.
As far as applications go, this is more unconventional in the sense that you're applying the lower of either a monster's ATK or DEF for calculation, but it shouldn't be more difficult to understand than the concept of using DEF for damage calculation while attacking). Obviously, Links don't have a DEF so you are left to just hit them in their ATK as normal, but you have options to deal with it; usually weaken their stats or make you stronger.
Also ties into its naming/stuff, as yes, I did theme this somewhat on Psyshock (or Psystrike, w/e). Not exactly how it works in-game, but it functions similarly to cases when you would use it.
Admittedly, a lot of the support cards Psychics do have outside Emergency Teleport aren't necessarily great (and Mind Master's probably staying banned for life), but there are options you can try. Then again, they are technically reliant on their support cards to deal with stuff, especially Links, though nowadays most monsters usually don't go to Defense Position and generally have weaker DEF than ATK.
In Link format, well, you'll just have to get creative with things (and some of the stuff I'll have to address later).
More cards will be added, tentatively, but it depends on some playtesting and yeah, feedback. Will mostly be another Main Deck monster and probably a few Links for options. Going to try not to add too much, but should be able to run it as its own Deck; not as a sub-engine for other stuff.
For now, it should be somewhat functional on its own and not going to cause silly things to happen, but I may be wrong about this.
Reps/likes will be given for reviews that are written properly and civilly.
