I've been in this situation where a manager tries to get you to do something by assigning someone else to do the same thing and let you compete.

I had been asking for additional developers and the ones I got were tasked with a competing design it completely demotivated me

Set Based design is something that could work. Where you have multiple teams working on different complexities of a component that don't compete but supercede each other.
