Decks in Tier 1 and 2 are ones that are known to have achieved good success against other decks/players.
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 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). Currently we have 0 decks in Duel Links that are Tier 0 (which is great, this means the game is rather balanced), Cyber Angels before all the nerfs were tier 0.
These decks are very well rounded. They have ways to deal with almost every deck and have very few weaknesses themselves.
Tier 2 decks have a bit more weaknesses than tier 1 decks but your opponent needs to draw them early on. An example of this is Hazy Flame, one of the best counters to it is Floodgate Trap Hole, which if you don’t draw at the start is a big problem.
These decks are very strong but have either one big, or a lot of weaknesses. An example of this is Ancient Gears. If they destroy your Ancient Gear Castle early on (with Gladiator Beast Bestiari, Storm, Cosmic Cyclone) you lost a major win condition which could easily result in your loss.
The decks in Tier 4 clearly feel weaker than other decks higher up on the tier list. They can do the same stuff other decks high on the tier list do, but just much slower or less consistent. However when playing ranked they can still be piloted to KoG in the right hands.
A forum of this page is to discuss not your decks but Duel Links' tier list and current meta. If you need a help to build a better deck, please visit Deck Advice forum. We sincely appreciate your understand. Unappropriate commens will be deleted without any notice.
I'M ALREADY AT KOG RANK WITH MY DARK MAGICIAN DECK !!! WOOHOOOO AND I'VE BEEN PLAYING JUST 4 TWO MONTHS. GOTTA SAY THIS GAME HIGHLY ENJOYABLE AND PRETTY MUCH ADDICTIVE. I SPENT NO CASH AT ALL, JUST LVL UP CHARACTERS 2 GET GEMS, DON'T LISTEN TO HATERS BCUZ THAT'S WHAT THEY DO, THEY JUST HATE.
You're offended because a website doesn't categorize a series of cards in a recreational app on a smartphone in a hierarchical list?
Sounds like a you problem.

And remember, Sylvans just counter other Sylvans. They're contradicting and it's kind've funny, but also sad.
Sylvans V. Sylvans, every other tournament Ever. Why people? Why use something so pathetic that isn't strong? Only Rose Lover makes the deck run reality. That much better. Special summon from grave a plant monster and the card with be unaffected by trap cards when done. Over power the deck with Rose Lover and then, you're "guaranteed" a 'win'. It's honestly not that fun is it? Sylvans is really the definition of 'cuc', anyone who plays it would be considerably a cuccer. It's Great. Great game, tbh, terrific and so much fun. Same strat over and over again, that is how Sylvans work. Depending on what you draw and what you discard, sure, you could be considered a "guaranteed" win but you won't be having fun or trust in your cards. You're only disrespecting the game with the strategy you're using because, you're only following what you think is good. And what you think is considerably "good" is gonna Cuc over someone that is trying to have a fun game. My reason would be, help out the other players having fun and don't Cuc anymore. Be more original than what everyone is being. It all starts with someone.
They even delete Valencia's innocent posts, and wiped out a whole thread of Marik fanpost in the Upcoming Events section. They also bombed all dolphin-posts, some of them were not offensive though. If it's a program sure, you can just put keystrings like "Dr. Keke Odin" and the likes, but still see the remnants of that overabused spam, so no it's not a program.
Acting like what? We're all good samaritans here. >_>

This game is so DRAMATIC. Losed a bunch of duels against ssa, geargia, ca, masked hero and felt like I already missed sylvan. Next 10 duels were sylvan decks lol. And now I wish this deck should be disappeared...again.
The rank system is actually terrible. Won 8 of last 10 games and no rank up. Legend 2 btw. They should change it where if you win 4 out of 5 games you rank up, not win 5 duels in a row to rank up. ridiculous.
The only real Tier 0 deck was CA with 3 Dakini and 3 ritual.
Sylvans are a joke compared to the old CA

GameA ratings is a joke, putting together SSA and ALien ON THE SAME TIER, unbelievable. Even a Whale-centric SSA can easily defeat Sylvans! Because of these tier-systems and ratings GAmeA lost all the credibility for me. Can't believe they're fcking this up so badly.
yeah its wrong ssa shouldn't be the same tier as aliens. it should be 2 tiers below. the deck is trash now. loses to sylvans, mask change and geargia - the top 3 so yeah kind of useless. and yeah wahle-centric is the best ssa deck and still sucks
