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.

Six Samurai Synchro

Tier
1
Cost
Expensive

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 is a relatively recent addition to the game. This deck is able to Summon multiple 3000 ATK monsters with the ability to disable the opponent’s backrow on attack declaration in a single turn, quickly overwhelming the opponent and ending games.

Koa'ki Meiru

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, Koa'ki Meiru Maximus can still be added to the hand via Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru, but, if you don’t have Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru, 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.

Masked HERO

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

Masked HERO is another deck that didn’t really get any worse: Mask Change and Masked HERO Anki are able to generate early OTKs and Destiny HERO - Decider is a fantastic card against Geartown Turbo and even Buster Blader. Destiny HERO - Celestial’s presence in the Semi-Limited List makes this Deck unable to run cards such as Hey, Trunade! and Enemy Controller freely.

Tier 3

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

Dino Survival's End

Tier
3
Cost
Budget

This Control Deck has completely monopolized PvP lately, boasting, quite frankly, amazing results and carrying an incredible amount of people to KoG. Being so accessible and easy to build is certainly a big part of the appeal of this Deck, but that’s not to say that its spot on the Tier List is not deserved.

Karakuri Synchro

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

Karakuri Synchro is a remarkably powerful and consistent Deck. Karakuri Anatomy allows you to replenish the resources spent on Synchro Summoning and draw through your Deck.

Do stall and burn decks require skill and thinking?

Samurais tier 0?
no way in hell pal, you grab a Hazy Flame deck and it's bye bye Samurais. Glad Yubel is not being seen frequently. Just try it and thank me later.

the fact that it changes the meta, forcing every non-six sam deck to play heavy counter against it already made this deck tier 0.
when was the last time u ppl see a deck that has such impact on the meta?
fur-hire? cyber-angels?

I am sure that this deck has a higher win rate overall than other decks, despite all the counters on the ladder.

I have seen something similar many times already

Jubel, Six Samurai , Mask Change and Amazoness, pretty much at META decks require no Skill and no logical thinking.

a 5yr old can reach KOG with a META Deck and $30 worth of buying cards.

Mill and Burn Dekc require skills and thinking

Screw that, I prefer to fight Smaurais 10 times over a cancerous stall deck that rellies entirely on dragging out the duel and cowardly hiding behind backrows.

Besides, those decks kinda go against the whole purpose of this "speed duel" format don't they?

At least Samurais have the balls to play the actual game the way it's supposed to be played. lol

Six Sams are Tier 0.

I play AG and I 80% of the time I face Six Sams or direct counter decks to those, like Cipher Soldier variants, etc.

How about the FTK Darkworld Deck that has just emerged XD. Ran into 2-3 times now. Arcana using Show of Nightmares with it. It’s pure P2W Cancer. Needs lots of the same URs from main boxes.

I ran into a couple of those already, my opponents dragged their turns for like 5 minutes & in the end they surrendered 'cause they couldn't pull off the 2 statue elephants for the OTK. lol

Geartown is still tier 1 in my opinion. They scare me more than samurais, like hell we can compare them to masked heroes or nerfed koaki meiru.

The difference is Samurais are a lot more consistent- Geartown turbo has a lot more brick potential and if they go first they potentially leave themselves open for an OTK with no stun or deterrent.

Thanks Samurai Obama, you managed to bring Weevil Burn cancer back in force.

Never seen so many Weevils.

Not to mention Yubel

I wish there are a lot more Weevil Burn decks.

Just so that Konami would finally hit the cancerous deck properly.

God I hate both, mostly Yubel though, as it's pretty obvious that it needs to be hit on the banlist as it's a deck at which you require messing with its timing. Also, lava golem deserves a ban as it deals too much and is used to get rid of boss monsters. Finally, at least for the degenerate decks, parasite infestation should require insects to be used in the deck an no effect damage to the player.

Jeez do you sound like such a winge. Anything else you want to complain about, or will you accept that you are just bad and don't know how to deal with cards like lava golem or yubel TI?

I'd limit yubel but not lava golem
And I don't see any problem with parasite infection, you use your skill slot to get that random advantage in the duel

I've heard WARRIORS UNITE is the Valiant Souls of 2019, what do you guys think?

The deck can be KOG worthy but haven't any magic / trap card for the future.
Maybe Quick and Parry can be relevant on the XYZ era.

Anyone else see dragon master knight in the card trader?

You need to learn a lot about word-rulings in this game! Quickdraw Synchron's card text say...
Rip this deck we have 5000LP now
