Hey, all! Back again from my (not so) brief hiatus, and during which time, I had an amazing idea, partly due to my college class. Currently procrastinating it. 

Anyway, I bring to you all a new archetype, "Alexandria". Based on the historic Lighthouse of Alexandria, this deck focuses on shining its burning light using the included Mirrors of Alexandria (like the  original). Your monsters let you search out and protect your Mirrors, and during either player's turn, each monster can use its effect to shine a beam through one of your face-up Mirror cards, disrupting all other cards in its column. Meanwhile, the Mirrors themselves give a nice boost to the deck by providing your Alexandrites some extra boosts. Without further ado, I introduce to you, the Lighthouse of Alexandria
 

Lighthouse of Alexandria: The Seven Wonders
Field Spell
During the Standby Phase: you can target 1 "Mirror of Alexandria" you control; move it to another unoccupied Spell/Trap Zone. You can banish 1 "The Seven Wonders" card from your hand and 1 "Alexandria" card from your GY; Special Summon 2 "Alexandria" monsters from your Deck, and if you do, Set 2 "Wonder Mirror" Spells from your Deck. You cannot attack during the turn you activate this effect. You can only use each effect of "Lighthouse of Alexandria: The Seven Wonders" once per turn.

Keeper of Alexandria
LIGHT/Pyro
Level 4 Effect
1700 ATK/1300 DEF
During your opponent's turn (Quick Effect): you can activate 1 Set "Wonder Mirror" card you control. You can target 1 "Mirror of Alexandria" you control (Quick Effect): destroy all other cards in its column, then Set that card. You can only use each effect of "Keeper of Alexandria" once per turn.

Architect of Alexandria
LIGHT/Pyro
Level 4 Effect
1600 ATK/1400 DEF
If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: you can Set 1 "Lighthouse of Alexandria: The Seven Wonders" or "Wonder Mirror" card from your Deck. You can target 1 "Mirror of Alexandria" you control (Quick Effect): for the rest of this turn, all other cards in its column are unaffected by other card effects, then Set that card. You can only use each effect of "Architect of Alexandria" once per turn.

Watcher of Alexandria
LIGHT/Pyro
Level 4 Effect
1800 ATK/1200 DEF
You can send 1 "Mirror of Alexandria" you control to the GY; Special Summon this card (from your hand or GY). You can target 1 "Mirror of Alexandria" you control (Quick Effect); negate the effects of all other cards in its column, then Set that card. You can only use each effect of "Watcher of Alexandria" once per turn.

Shining Wonder Mirror
Continuous Spell
This card's name becomes "Mirror of Alexandria" while on the field. When this card is activated: you can add 1 "Alexandria" card from your Deck to your hand. You can target 1 "Alexandria" monster you control: it gains ATK equal to the combined ATK of all "Alexandria" monsters you control. You can only use each effect of "Shining Wonder Mirror" once per turn.

Glaring Wonder Mirror
Continuous Spell
This card's name becomes "Mirror of Alexandria" while on the field. When this card is activated: you can Special Summon 1 "Alexandria" monster from your Deck. "Alexandria" monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle, also you take no battle damage from battles involving them. You can only activate the effect of "Glaring Wonder Mirror" once per turn.

Fading Wonder Mirror
Continuous Spell
This card's name becomes "Mirror of Alexandria" while on the field. When this card is activated: you can shuffle 3 "Alexandria" and/or "Wonder Mirror" cards from your GY into the Deck, then draw 1 card. If a "Alexandria" monster you control is destroyed and sent to your GY: you can target 1 "Alexandria" monster in your GY; Special Summon 1 "Alexandria" monster with a different name from your Deck or GY. You can only use each effect of "Fading Wonder Mirror" once per turn.

The Burning of Alexandria
Counter Trap
During your opponent's turn, when a "Alexandria" card you control is destroyed by your opponent: banish 1 "Lighthouse of Alexandria: The Seven Wonders" you control, face-down, and if you do,  banish all cards your opponent controls, face-down. Your opponent takes no damage during the next turn after this card was activated. You can only activate 1 "The Burning of Alexandria" per Duel.

Overall, I think they give off a Magical Musketeer vibe, but with a nice change of pace and consistency. Please let me know what you all think!


Peace be upon you! I am TOPsycho, not-so-renowned creator of a few diverse Yu-Gi-Oh! Custom Cards and archetype. I personally love making new ideas and designs for Yugioh cards, so if you have a suggestion, I'd love to work with it, but if not, I'm sure I'll show you something else anyway! I try to make archetypes that have very unique gimmicks, special in-archetype abilities that other decks don't have. All in all, to those of you who frequent my topics, feel free to leave a like, comment, or anything else, and happy duels to you all!
