I just want to point out that this is not the Nazi swastika.
The Nazi Swastika is the opposite, which is in clockwise form. This is the original counter-clockwise swastika, an ancient religious symbol of peace, is what is on the card.

1:1 Astro Electrumite does make sense and is a pretty devastating hit to the deck.
I was more noting how you kept cards like Zenmaiety and Rejuv (which would do all of nothing) banned, but freed up PEPE cards like Plush which would do tremendous damage. It doesn't have to imply malice, as much as it would imply you remembered ok cards that you used to play with and forgot others.
I don't even disagree with most of your limits, hell I wanted Plush back for a while now, even when it wasn't cool, it'll turn into some kinda extra link thing with juggler and clown summons, but eh
Zoos as a deck are still better off with a removal option in Drancia, than an engine that will be better in other decks.
It's a pretty good list that I'd probs play under
Dude I fucking hated Pepe, I felt like t was an overhyped deck with not enough synergy in the playstyle
That is also why I liked Dracopal, because it was super synergetic and, realistically, was a better deck than Pepe that got overshadowed due to OCG hype when the set hit TCG.
I’m iffy on boat, but acknowledge it wouldn’t be too much, so probably fine. I don’t think Rejuv is something I feel like freeing up, but I’m not quite sure why, which is why I said IDK and I’d have to think it through.
I do think Hornet and Dfly can go to three, though, and should have done it.
I think generic engines benefit the game more than reviving one decktype, despite the hit to sky striker’s engine

List looks mostly fine to me. I would keep Emeral at 1 instead because IIRC it's possible to loop 2 copies for FTK/OTKs. At 1 it should be more difficult to set up such loops while still making it accessible for most decks.
No. Emeral was never the problem. Any loops involving it involve cards that do the actual broken part, it just happens to be a solid card. It should have never been hit.
I'm unsure about Upstart, but I can't pinpoint why. It offers a smaller deck and more consistency for decks that want it... but only by -1 deck space. Would that have much of an impact? I am under the impression that nowadays dominant decks struggle to stick with 39~40 cards, so going for a 38-card decks may be even more challenging. AFAIK Upstart is mostly played in Sky Strikers, and as the leading deck I would think it's the deck to support the least. Granted, you are already hitting Drones, but still, cannot but feel that the +1 Upstart is compensating the -2 Drones, if only by a bit from a consistency standpoint. Not to mention more Upstarts equals to more Spells in the GY to make the extra effects of Sky Striker Spells live.
How is an extra Upstart, a card that gives you a random card from the top of your deck, comparable to 2 lost copies of Drones? That doesn't make any sense.
There's also the fact that Upstart is entirely generic, which means that, even if SS uses it (not that 'pure' SS is something we need to hit, hence hitting Drones to hit the engine), that doesn't mean every other deck should suffer because one deck happens to use it somewhat better.
I'm wary of Norden. Even under Link/MR4 rules, it's still an easy 2-material ED monster out from an Instant Fusion. Also, pretty sure there is a risk of looping if it's allowed at 3 due to its lack of hard OPT. Like Emeral, at the very least I would keep it Limited.
I mean, who cares? Instant Fusion is a hard OPT spell that's fairly difficult to search. Norden is a glorified revival card at that point, and, while good, he still negates what he revives which means he's worse than cards like Reborn despite the +1 body. This card was honestly fair when it was banned, and it shouldn't be on the list anymore.
On a similar note, I wouldn't move Trishula to higher than 1 because 2+ more copies are usually ran in decks with enough swarming and/or looping power to kill hands early game, even in opening turns, and AFAIK FTKs like that are frowned upon. Decks that don't rely on such strategies rarely run more than 1 anyway.
i mean, why not move it up? The loop trishula decks don't exist/are inferior to actually relevant decks that do similar, but the option of running another copy or two is fine. Card can exist in multiples, its loops are archaic overkill, and many can be done with a single copy. If people want style points with a bad deck, let them.

time to clean up the list a bit, mostly things moving upward, not down
Those moving down are marked with an asterisk (*).

feel free to ask why/why not, don't feel like waxing for hours
if something seems like i didn't move it far enough up, assume i'm erring on the side of caution

I’m not dancing around the question. You’re asking “does a free +1 matter”, and I’ve covered how it matters.
Being able to ladder into a Link 4 is the immediate usage for it, but it can also be used to go into (should you really want to) higher level Synchros. It encourages a bit more thought in deckbuilding that wasn’t there, without condemning you to wait for a slow combo to go off.
An immediate +1 will always find use. I’m still trying to figure out the best for it, but as with all things of the ilk, it takes testing and practice. No, I can’t tell you an optimal play off the top, but this is a good Solitaire Target tha timmediately sunergizes with your deck and gives you another body to play with.

Spectral requires more input (Solitaire + Sword), has a turn delay, and it’s not debatable that adding 1-2 more ED slots for it is a lot to ask when it’s basically the only card that accessed them, and in a slow fashion.
this is a +1 body for simply playing Gozuki, who you will find almost every hand, unlike Solitaire.
theyre not comparable

I kept the info on the link minimal due to not wanting to be discovered, because I know that at least one person in my family checks things like this every so often.
My household is growing increasingly toxic to live in, and I have no interest in going down with the proverbial ship. I have done all I can for those I live with, but they're holding me back and putting me down, and I don't want to be here anymore. It's constantly tense, at best.
As said, I can make the move fairly easily. My job will allow me to transfer, as the boss says I'm a quality employee and the store I transfer to is one of the fringe stores, so they take all the assistance they can get.
I also am already looking into apartments, with help, and I'll be able to afford them as well as groceries and the like with my pay, so I'll be mostly stable once I get settled in.
The problem is that I can't afford to leave right now. I'm not asking you guys for money, per se, but I would appreciate it if you would spread the word. Yes, I used a pseudonym, for the same reason that I left info off of the page as much as possible.
I'm going to do my best to be active during this time, but I can't make promises. I'm looking into extra jobs in the meantime, so that I can get out of here as quickly as possible, but that will still take a while.
If you can do anything at all to help, or even just send your prayers, thank you.
