Deck tier list [Post-Banlist Version]

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

Why is the meta broken? and why does that make it suck? Ever consider playing for fun instead of climbing ladder mindlessly and just enjoying the experience or maybe building an anti-meta deck and hunting down meta player for the lulz????? I mean really anythings more productive then crying about "another broken meta"

Triamids are bad deck, go for Harpies, just add some backgrow (2 karma cuts, 1-2 ultimate providence, 1-2 Chalice, 1-2 Forbidden Lance, 2-3 Swallow nests)

? Harpies are cheap deck, and much better than the Triamids. Harpies can work at low ranks even not completed, while you collect staples, some you can exchange for UR dream tickets

Do we really need another nerf? If I were to face Lunalight, or a deck that basically shuts down effects, I'd lose. Got a sick play for you guys:

I play lunalights, the amount of times I get hit by book of moon, canadia and fiendish chain is ridiculous, especially in legend and king of games.

hey guys! I'm newbie, just download the game 1 hour ago, than I spent initial gems and got these cards, is my deck at last decent, can I already play on rookie rank?

Also, make sure that you perform a lot of Synchro summons and Xyz summons. After a while, you will unlock 2 more extra deck slots (one for 100 Synchro summons, one for 100 Xyz summons). This will help you to add some more variety to your extra deck.

Also going to put this out here because it really helped in my experience. Try those loaner deck duels. Gives you a taste of an archetype and see if you fits your playstyle.

Not true, decks can be played without it. There are other distruption cards, but ofc BoM is an op card. No one denies that.

I wonder what's a good deck with many negate cards. Spammed Silent Swordsman with counter cards back in the day and I was wondering if there's still any deck like that in the game instead of the same meta OTK decks.

Thunder dragon meets your criteria but it's meta too for those exact reasons: several negates and big chances of otk

^also onomat. Roach + bounzer

I believe both onomat and TG got hit because it has negation with OTK material.
You won't find any top tier deck that can only do OTK

I splashed the parshath engine on some of my decks, it's not tier 1 material but fulfills my playstyle, countering things and making people go crazy, than attack next turn

Exactly 7 deck Will be limited but that's not seem a nuclear.
I think with New main box and New World, we Will see New meta list.
