Electromagnet Deck [New]

Deck tier list

NOTES

The GameA Tier List is primarily based on King of Games decks submitted by users.

Tier list

Decks in Tier 1 and 2 are ones that are known to have achieved good success against other decks/players.

Meta decks

Meta decks are decks that are often commonly used by players in PvP. Meta decks will often change depending on newer cards or strategies, so we will keep updating this page often to keep everyone informed of newer decks.

Tier 0

Tier 0 decks are decks that completely dominate a meta and you either play the same deck or a deck that completely counters it (but loses to almost any other deck).

No deck can currently be classified as Tier 0

Tier 1

These decks are very well rounded. They have ways to deal with almost every deck and have very few weaknesses themselves.

Blue-Eyes Cosmo

Tier
1
Cost
Expensive

After A Trick Up the Sleeve was changed, Blue-Eyes Cosmo Brain lost its incredible consistency together with its competitive viability, but the introduction of The White Stone of Ancients has brought this deck back to life. Snipe Hunter can enable quick OTKs on Turn 2, Dawn Knight can send The White Stone of Ancients to the Graveyard directly from the Deck and Beatdown! allows you to overwhelm pretty much any opponent.

Red-Eyes Fusion

Tier
1
Cost
Premium

Subterror

Tier
1
Cost
Moderate

Masked Tribute has definitely played a big role when it comes to the success of this deck and, while it’s true that similar situations haven’t lasted so long in the past, that’s not enough of a reason to dismiss Subterrors from the Tier List.

Subterror decks can be quite threatening, but they are also quite fragile whenever their Trap Card, Subterror Final Battle, is not available: they are unable to interact with the opponent and can easily get OTKed by aggressive decks such as Blue-Eyes and Koa'ki Meiru.

Moderate1

Tier 2

Tier 2 decks have a bit more weaknesses than tier 1 decks but your opponent needs to draw them early on.

Geartown Turbo

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

Geartown Turbo’s popularity is definitely tied to the steady rise “Control” decks have seen lately. Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon’s ability to shut down the opponent’s back row on attack declaration makes potentially devastating Trap Cards such as Drowning Mirror Force and Wall of Disruption completely useless.

Koa'ki Meiru (Neos Fusion)

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

Since both Koa'ki Meiru Urnight and the now Limited Koa'ki Meiru Maximus require Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru in order to function, it would be impossible to run less than two copies of it, which pretty much means that this deck doesn’t have access to Enemy Controller, Hey, Trunade! and Treacherous Trap Hole anymore.

Sure, Maximus can still be added to the hand via Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru, but, if you don’t have Iron Core, you can’t Special Summon it and, due to the fact that you only have two copies of that Spell Card in your entire Deck, you are not that likely to open with it. Consistency has definitely dropped, but Diamond Core alone can keep everything together.

Six Samurai Synchro

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

Shien's Dojo being added to the Semi-Limited List has certainly hindered this deck, but not nearly enough to completely kill it. With its ability to, once per turn, negate the activation of a Spell/Trap Card, Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En is still an incredibly powerful monster that can disrupt your plays and that this deck is able to bring out with almost unparalleled consistency.

While it’s true that Treacherous Trap Hole is a lot more difficult to implement, the “Six Samurai” archetype can always fall back on its own version of the Trap Card: a Trap Card that you always need to keep in mind whenever you are facing this deck.

Geartown Turbo

Koaki Meiru (Neos Fusion)

Six Samurai Synchro
Expensive2

Tier 3

These decks are very strong but have either one big, or a lot of weaknesses.

Amazoness "Control"

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

Is there anything that expensive back row and an “Amazoness” engine cannot accomplish? Apparently not. Amazoness Swords Woman and Lava Golem have never stopped being relevant and Amazoness Onslaught’s ability to remove your opponent’s monsters from play is still really powerful as it bypasses the most common forms of protection.

Metaphys

Tier
3
Cost
Very Expensive

Metaphys Daedalus’s ability to banish all other face-up Special Summoned monsters on the field and Metaphys Tyrant Dragon’s immunity to Trap Cards make Metaphys a quite powerful deck that can easily stand up to Tier 1 and Tier 2 decks like Six Samurai and Blue-Eyes. Consistency is pretty good, but, even with Metaphys Dimension, the deck lacks ways of interacting with the opponent during their turn.

Silent Spellbook

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

The increased consistency granted by the new Skill Light and Dark, which pretty much doubles the chances of having a Silent Magician in the opening hand, Silent Magician’s ability to negate the activation of Spell Cards like Neos Fusion and Red-Eyes Fusion and Spellbook of Fate still being an incredibly powerful card are all factors that certainly contributed to the return of this deck. Silent Spellbook is now more relevant and, thanks to the WCS 2019 Support Campaign’s UR Dream Ticket, more accessible.

Jews control their minds, they control their lives, secret Jewish institutions manipulate societies in diverse nations for a long time and now with the advancement of technology, they can control you with almost no effort.
the Jews are cruel people, they transform the minds of societies into super materialistic and ignorant, they create two opposing sides, both of which mull the Jewish financial elite, and make the media repeat misinformation and fake news to confound the head of humanity.
how much that is losing you, living in an aggressive and selfish society.
if you support the lie and the bad, okay, go ahead, but in this situation only the Jewish elite is blessed.
the bankos are controlled by them, and they do not control the money, so they have the power to buy their soul, as soon as the currency is just something that represents their purchasing power, what matters is what you produce, if the Jews create the money, then they can buy you.
The Jews strongly inculcate the use of alcoholic beverages, drugs and pornography, to detract from the culture of society.
the Jews make foul play, they use maximum dishonesty to maintain control over everyone.
they have made the porn industry grow and now any nation is subject to such decay, women are being treated like animals.
if you have a daughter, maybe one day the Jews will knock on the door of your house to pick up your unattainable daughter and turn her into a sex toy, because whoever is right in a stupid society is money, right?
how to solve this problem, well .. if you read this already are helping a lot, now you are aware of who are the Jews, do your part, you are special, you are a chosen to fight alongside the light.
we will fight to the end and we can undo this which is literally a period of darkness.
we need to exterminate them!

What has konami done to this internet troll ?

He keeps spamming the game will die for years. He was here during Sylvans era saying the game will die.

I think the game is following its own natural process. It will take at least 3 years to finally die, or maybe even more.

Actually I had duels when opponent has 2 red-eyes slash or 2 blue-eyes with one cosmo brain (and sixsam even funnier). Then I just daed them lol (auto surrender). But metaphys needs ragnarok to climb to tier 2 or even 1

What? I was agreeing with you. A truly skilled duelist will be able to get just as much value out of Mushroom Man as Raigeki! It's all about how you use the cards!

The current meta is very stable to be honest. I'm seeing a lot of different decks: Subterrors, Blue-Eyes, Red-Eyes, Neos, amazons, buster blader, Synchro decks even fur hires.

Lol this is by far the best meta we've had. I'm seeing a lot of different decks lately: Subterrors, Metaphys, Blue-Eyes, Red-Eyes, Koa'ki Meiru, buster blader, amazoness, U.A. and even fur hires. The game has improved a lot.
