Deck tier list

NOTES

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

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.

Tier 2

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

Why are D/D/D, Metalfoes and Lunalights not on this list? They did really good in the KC Cup.

That's the entire point of Trading Card Games. You buy packs and hope you get the rare cards. We all have to buy our cards. They don't come to us for free. Its exactly like the real card games. You don't walk into a card store and expect them to give you cards for free. Lol.

If I wanted to pay to get cards I would just actually go out to a store and buy some. Not buy them on a mobile game that I thought would just be for fun.

There's NO WAY that Fluffal is tiered. That deck is fun but it's rogue at best.

Seriously, this site should remove it from the tier list.

Maybe there are some decent Fluffal builds that even have a good and consistent option for going first. But the Fluffal deck on this site is clearly no good example.

Meta slaves should've figured out something by now + it's an extremely popular deck , if sure the deck was tested a lot.

I for one had fun seeing its fans go through all the stages of grief in a span of a week

If konami wants fluffal to be meta, giving us Edge Imp Scythe and Frightfur Cruel Whale would be a good start, so let's see if it will happen within the next 2 boxes

What the F is this new skill that fills the graveyard for Levianeer, Konami doesn't know what to do with this game?

Why then did they limit the Thunder dragons then if everything repeats again.

They want players to just buy a new GAndora deck to abuse the same strategy again?

Thank you for "Summon free livianeer" button, very convenient, only 3 times per duel jerks

It's konami manipulating the meta to increase sales, nothing out of the ordinary, they always do that in physical format but it's far easier in duel links.

Release new trash cards>make them OP with a skill>enjoy profit>nerf skill>said cards return to trash tier. Repeat

Konami doesn't manipulate the meta. They make the meta.

I feel bad for gandora whenever they nerf their skill it won't be playable anymore, other decks can still kinda play once they are nerfed, gandora is unplayable without the skill

iirc, yes, that's Bronk's card
That guy is right NOW, the current DL is more geared towards anime fans to give it more different...
They keep adding madolche cards as rewards from the lottery yet there hasn't been any madolc...
Yep, Link would not be meta right away. Likely won't be meta until next year, even.
