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.

Many people are using Sylvan deck currently in the ranked match. If you want to know how to deal with the deck, check the link!

New / Updated decks [May 23 Updated]

Noble Knight

Six Samurai

Bujin

Crystal Beast

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). 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.

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. 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.

Tier 3

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.

Tier 4

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.

helpppppp !!!
Hello everyone, something terrible happened to me and I would be happy if someone could help me.
I did not have a space on my phone so I deleted a few things (I have galaxy s6) and mistakenly I deleted one of Google's apps and now I can not log in to YUGIOH and I have my duelist ID and my google play remembers all my data. But for some reason the YUGIOH app does not let me in the game and I'm really afraid I will not be able to play agin.
So if anyone has any idea what Supposed to do plesa send me an email (my email segev8640@gmail.com) thank

Because the inconsistency of CA. CA may strength if u get 2nd turn but every CA support monster have to do activate their effects when summoned (Senju, Sonic, Petit) which can negated by Chalice, Div. Wrath or Ult. Providence. Also they lack of backrow removal if attacks. Aromages have many LP gainers which can survive longer and Rose Lover that can turn the tides when spec. Summ. Monster attacks

Lol no just no armoage isn't even considered on teir lists GameA is the only site that does and cyber angels are still consistent but you did get the second part right. All in all cyber angels are still way better than aromages they should not be ranked together.
