Hello there! How's it going?
So the custom cards I'm currently focusing on, more flavor themed than anything else, but heavily rely on a spell-card-heavy strategy and on old school style ritual monsters, by which I mean ritual monsters that actually have a specific ritual card they need rather than having a generic ritual card for several different ritual monsters.
After a few tries of building decks with the cards I'm making in duel portal, one thing I found happens more often than I would like is that even with a few helping cards to fetch or substitute the ritual spells, I often find myself with a bunch of dead ritual cards in my hand. Now I understand this problem is to an extent inevitable given the central design, but I was wondering if you have any tips on the following questions:
1. What should be the balance of ritual monsters/ritual spell cards vs the rest of the deck
2. How can I make the design of the cards stick to the core idea but still make it viable
More information for context:
*The other cards are mostly defensive in nature, whether it be by offering stalling potential or by being disruptive (more of the former than the latter)
Thank you for reading and have a great day or night!
