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).

There are currently no Tier 0 decks

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.

Trickstar tier 3, it shouldn't even tiered at all. Small damage, weak board, not even the owner (blue angel) has good skill to boost this deck

Trickster decks have been memeing their way into ranked with going first and making you draw cards to then screw you by playing Heavy Slump. Gimmicky but effective if you pull it off.

Dark Magician is not back to tier? I faced them a lot recently. Eternal soul is really great support. I know single mst can eliminate all, but they are quite consistent, tho.

I'm still using it, and while they still have great otk potential, acquired good support, and raikiri got stronger with the extra monster zone, you can tell that they struggle to keep up with newer decks, mostly due to the broken skills they have.

I agree with this website bc here salamangreat is tier 1. Tier 0 is a deck that you have to play the same deck to win or a counter but loses to almost any other deck. Most of my decks win against salamangreat

No, tier 0 means its only counter is itself. It cannot lose to any other deck, just to itself, forcing you to play the same deck to have a chance.

Most tier lists are based on usage in percent (in tournaments or on the ladder). The idea behind it is that people play the most efficient decks because they want to win as many times as possible.

How can there be a tier 2 deck when there is a tier 0 deck? If a deck is tier 0, everything else shouldn't be tiered.

My take is that this time popularity is hard carrying the tier 0 status, six sams at their best were far stronger the same as past tier 0 decks, with salamangreats most decks have a shot against it but they are damn popular

No such thing as a tier 0. Stop taking meta links as a Bible. Mekk can take out Salamangreat.

Give us odd-eyes vortex, persona and mirage. All these cards are left overs no one needs anymore. If you released it 30 boxes before then it would have been ok. Konami doesnt care what we want, you take what they give.

PvP so damn boring. Nothing but salamangaayys if you even get paired. Seems like a lot of players quit lately. This deck has too many search and draws for a low deck count.

No other decks can search consistently or have so much unrestricted support. This is just pay2play now.
