I recently backed up all my old Archetypes, and I looked over some of my old Archetypes, and that made me want to update, as many were made before Link Monsters were introduces, which changed the game quite a bit. So, I decided to start with the oldest Archetype I have backed up, I probably won't do every single one, but just the ones I find interesting or feel like needed an update. I also include the original version, so you can see the differences.
 
 
Retrospecter is an Archetype of Zombie/LIGHT Archetype with various Levels that focuses on Synchro Summoning, shuffling your cards back into the Deck, and they can all Special Summon themselves from the GY by discarding a Retrospecter monster, where most gain a new effect should you do so. Newly have Link Monsters as well. The name is a portmanteau of Retro, Retrospect and Specter (as in a ghost), which all reference how the cards are based on old-school gaming consoles and related concepts, where the monsters are each based on the various generations of consoles.
