A dark age in Yu-Gi-Oh is coming as me and most of the playerbase has already known it. One way or another, the inevitable demise of the what was supposed to be a slow but smooth recovery turned into yet another avalanche of unexplained proportions. The existence of the newly created Spright archetype can easily create boards that don't have to rely on any special mechanics or anything unique or beyond the grand-scheme, such as its previous meta contenders that came before it and now. To that being said, the TCG variant is lucky enough to not really be as "Tier 0" as the OCG variants has made it out to be. However only time would tell if this is the came for where, and how Splight (Spright) truly stands as a competitive deck.
For one reason I can say that this deck is an immediate success upon the release of POTE comes from how it can quickly (and fluently) build boards, set up a defensive wall for negations, and piece together an OTK versus other decks. However it doesn't mean that it isn't vulnerable to cards like Infinite Impermanence, Nibiru, The Primal Being, and PSY-FrameGear Gamma; but we in the TCG are also in the position to use a very particular card that was obscure for awhile, known as Crossout Designator (basically Called by the Grave, but you banish any card from your deck for said card to be negated instead of the GY). Before I go on to the XYZ monsters, there is a new Link-2 monster I have yet to mention in the Spright archetype that contributes the most to the board building and playing extensions: Spright Elf is a Link-2 monster that can special summon a Level 2 monster from your GY (or a Rank/Link-2 monster from your GY if your opponent controls a monster). Hence why Mekk-Knight Crusadia Avramax was chosen here because of not only of the Synergy with I:P Masquerina; but also because it doesn't require Accesscode Talker to banish important Link-2 monsters (like Spright Elf) to activate effects. Which in my opinion is a lot more resourceful for both sides than just banishing a link monster and trying to pop a card (on 4300 ATK) just to have it negated with any on field negate (or having your efforts decimated all together with Solemn Strike if you didn't use I:P Masquerina).
Finally the XYZ monsters that contributed on building the defensive structure that was necessary to further build boards and chip away at your opponents with less setbacks. While it may not come as a surprise to those who play Water base decks that take advantage of the familar XYZ monster, Bahamut Shark; Toadally Awesome is a Rank-2 Monster that negates anything by tributing a "Frog" monster (including itself), and recycles itself to be used later. The newest XYZ Monster, Gigantic Sprightcan be not only be XYZ summoned with using a Link-2 monster as well; but in doing so can get a multiplier in its base attack stat. For its features, Gigantic Spright can detach one XYZ material to special summon a Level 2 monster from the deck; but in doing so you can not Special Summon for the rest of the turn, except the aforementioned Level/Rank/Link-2 monsters (including your opponent). Finally comes The Phantom Knights of Cursed Javelin, which is just infinite impermanence in form of a monster card; but could be a quick effect if I was able to put a Phantom Knights piece in here (however I would not recommend this for sanity sake).
