Altergeist is a control deck revolving around Spellcaster monsters and augmented by extremely powerful Trap cards. Utilizing powerful Normal Summons such as Loading... on your turn to set up your field, or Loading... to Summon a monster on the opponent's turn like Loading... to act as disruption, Altergeist always has powerful moves to make. The Link-2 monster Loading... acts as backrow negation and can reach ludicrous levels of ATK when combined with their Link-4 boss Loading... . Their Traps are the other half of the deck; Loading... allows for consistent recycling of Multifaker, Loading... , and Loading... which are excellent disruption or board breaking tools. The most notorious Trap would be Loading... , a monster negate that also renders all of your activated on-field Altergeist effects immune to effect negation! This is extremely potent given the ubiquity of cards like Ash Blossom, Infinite Impermanence and the array of popular omni negates present in the meta.

DMC Meta Weekly #31 2nd Place -
Harpie is a WIND Winged-Beast deck located in Secret Pack: Glory on Wings. With a legacy as one of the oldest archetypes in the game, Harpie has seen numerous waves of support over the years, culminating in the deck being most powerful at summoning an array of Rank 4 monsters including powerful less generic Extra Deck tools like Loading... and Loading... in addition to its Synchro boss Loading... which has a unique summoning method when played in Harpie decks!
The main theme of the deck is backrow destruction; with the not once per turn Loading... providing unparalelled backrow removal and the ubiquitous Loading... , matchups against backrow-heavy decks are as good as won off the bat. The most powerful card, the semi generic Loading... is even more powerful in a Harpie deck and can win the game immediately with little opportunity for counterplay.

Nordic is a Synchro deck based around four subgroups of cards: Nordic Alfar, Ascendant, Beast, and Relic, and all revolve around summoning poweful Aesir boss monsters. Despite having fairly low stats in the Main Deck, Nordic monsters such as Loading... and Loading... facilitate easy Synchro Summons of the 3 primary boss monsters: Loading... , Loading... , and Loading... , all of which have End Phase revival effects and on-field effects of various quality.
Despite being a fairly outdated in need of retrains, the Aesir bosses are supported by a myriad of powerful and recently-release support cards, such as the game-controlling Loading... and its searcher Loading... which turn your Aesir monsters into significant threads, and the consistency boosting Loading... .

Rikka is a plant deck focused around tributing monsters, including the opponent's. Seeing some recent TCG success when combined with the Sunavalaon archetype, Rikka is still awaiting their latest support but are still a fairly capable deck with what is currently available. Tributing is one of the most powerful types of removal in the game, bypassing most forms of protection, especially when considering Loading... which forces the opponent to tribute a monster they control, an effect which bypasses virtually all protection, including "unaffected by card effects"! With cards like Loading... and Loading... being huge consistency boosts and powerful end bosses like Loading... and Loading... , Rikka is more than able to set up strong compeition outside of match ups against the meta!
