Aside from making a lot of broken cards and then banning them all, Konami started to bring fans back with more competitive Structure Decks, printing Anime/Manga-only cards like Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight or even bring back or boost old or classic Archtypes like Blue-Eyes, Heros, Cyber Dragons or even Dark Magician (which still sucks).
While thinking about it, what Structure Decks should be printed, I was wondering, what cards would make some of those cards even worth playing.
For instance, the Machina Structure Deck had Machina Force in it, which is a complete unplayable card which people only had in there deck as a cost to bring back Machina Fortress back then.
So what can people do to make cards that are almost impossible or even pointless to summon actually relevant into a deck?
So here are my suggestions for Structure Decks and attemps to make cards, that can't be useable in the Meta, relevant.A Moth based Structure Deck (Mothra Strikes Back)Notable Moth-Cards:
Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth
Cocoon of Evolution
Here are the monsters nobody with common sense would even attempt to summon. Even Gate Guardian would be an easier to summon monster than even Great Moth.
So what cards could be added or what support cards can be made:Existing CardsHowling Insect/Gokipon/Giant Rat:

Point of the Deck:
A typical beatdown deck with some stalling elements. Mainly easy access to summon Great Moth and Ultimate Perfectly Great Moth and even make Larvea Moth relevant but not nessecary. While right now, yes, those are just some suggestions, but not really something that would make a deck competitive. Still, I would like to see a boost to the "archetype" since they are so memorable.
