Deck tier list [Prediction]

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 Synchro

Tier
1
Cost
Expensive

[Comments]

Felix: A strong and solid deck. It can brick sometimes but is mostly very aggressive and difficult to deal with. His worst fear? Lunalight Sabre Dancer.

Invoked Elementsaber

Tier
1
Cost
Expensive

[Comments]

Brolyonic: It is one of the best decks right now, very expensive, but worthy, can defeat top tier decks easily, one or two little weakness(es).

Felix: Even post-banlist this is still a really strong deck, but it would probably belong in a tier 1.5, we'll see.

Shiranui Synchro

Tier
1
Cost
Budget - Expensive

[Comments]

Brolyonic: This is a good deck, Not that much expensive, has some little weaknesses like:

1) The Skill Sealed Tombs and the Field Spell Necrovalley can shut down your entire strategy

2)If you Normal Summon Shiranui Squire or Shiranui Spiritmaster to make a Synchro play and their effects are negated, you are pretty much done with your turn, etc.

Felix: Surely the best deck in the meta, the Lightsworn version is the optimal way to play this deck. The upcoming spell specialist nerf COULD change things but I don't think it will be that devastating.

Tier 2

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

Blackwing Synchro

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

[Comments]

Brolyonic: Expensive, But still a pretty nice deck for PvP's, Can beat decks like Ritual Beasts, Fortune Lady, etc.

Felix: The coin flip is what keeps this deck at tier 2, basically when you go first against a Blackwing deck you don't even know that you'll need a strong set-up or you'll almost surely lose next turn, but this doesn't work for the other 50% of coin flips, to put it simply, this is almost a Tier 0 deck as a second player and a tier 3 as the first player, with a strong OTK weakness.

Crystron

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

[Comments]

Felix: A strong deck with great consistency, but the increase of Blue Eyes players can be a problem for Crystrons.

Dark Magician

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

[Comments]

Brolyonic: This is very good deck, expensive but worthy, magician navigation and magical circle must be in deck.

Felix: Not much to say about Dark magician, if you can work around the first two circle banish they run out of resources pretty fast, but if you can't it's pretty much over.

Thunder Dragon

Tier
2

Tier 3

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

Cyber Dragon

Tier
3
Cost
Budget - Expensive

[Comments]

Brolyonic: Very Expensive, Can be Easily beaten by decks that summon monsters very fast, Cards like Drowning Mirror Force can counter it easily.

Darklord

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

[Comments]

Brolyonic: Very Expensive, Needs LP Payment for effects, Cards like Treacherous Trap Hole and Floodgate Trap Hole Can counter it easily, but still relevant in PvP.

Felix: The ban-list pretty much killed it, you can now play it with a Lightsworn engine, but for now it's not strong enough to be tiered.

Lunalight

Tier
3
Cost
Budget - Expensive

[Comments]

Felix: A strong OTK deck, it can brick and is weak to back rows but is almost a sure win when the opponent only relies on monsters.

Masked HERO

Tier
3

This is by far, the best meta we've had in 3 years. No deck seems to die, everything is relevant.
Greg 9hour ago
I think this meta is very balanced, no deck seems to be overpowered nor uncounterable.

Vision HEROES became meta and aromages are King of Games material. Awesome.

LS is a meta deck, it's just that not many use it, perhaps because of the highly risky playstyle.
