Although none of Yi-Seong Gye’s skills do target archer troops specifically, many of his builds depend on the Archery Tree and will benefit archers (especially for the badly-needed march speed.
Best Commander Pairing for Yi-Seong Gye (YSG)
Boudica (Prime) with Yi-Seong Gye as secondary commander is a great pairing for KvK Season 4+ and probably one of the best archery pairings towards end-game of a kingdom you can run. Nebuchadnezzar is another really strong pairing with YSG secondary and you have a ton of skill damage and archer synergy going on for LvL Season 4 and beyond. Alexander Nevsky is also a very good archer pairing with YSG as the secondary commander after KvK Season 3 – although you lose some utility from the archer synergy the defense debuff is just working so well here. Alternatively you can also use Ramesses but his defense reduction is less effective but a good alternative option. Alexander the Great as primary commander is an amazing commander to pair YSG with in KvK Season 2-3, although he is no archery commander and you would use a full infantry march. This becomes less useful later but for the named KvK seasons you will dominate heavily with this pairing. El Cid is a great commander to pair YSG early in the game if you don’t have any of the above commanders available. Still, I’d recommend running YSG secondary or you will get swarmed down heavily. El Cid is working wonders especially with his 4th skill march speed so make sure you have that skill unlocked, though.

And for the artifacts I have tested the different ones here so you can see which ones perform the best (of course I only tested/list the ones that make sense):
Ring of Doom is perfect to increase all damage dealt by a percentage so it affects pretty much any damage output and works well with him.Horn of Fury works perfect with all abilities and and let you cycle through his active skill quicker and quicker with the talent builds you can see below.
