Deck tier list

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 3

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.

Anyone got a competitive E hero(not Neo-Spacian) deck?

there's no competitive E-hero deck unfortunately, but i guess you could try a neos deck with blazemn to send him to the grave and oversoul to sp summon along some counter meta backrow also put necroshade in to be able to normal summon neos with no tirbutes also blue dragon summoner to search neos

also there's that card you get for lv 40 alexis. it could also be a good tech but neos would die in the end phase with it

I am tired to play spellbook. So i want to build my own deck. combining Silent magician, gold sarcophagus (that I am buy from Spellbound of silence) and granpa card skill to search pieces of exodia. But i need two copies wonder wand and legion fiend jester again...

That's the spirit! Too many here just do metas. Its real fun building your own, testing, implementing.

Yep, then if you find something that works, everyone pushes the copy/paste button, and now you have a NEW META! Rise, repeat.

I SO glad that after I'm done steam rolling someone on MTA arena, they can't just go, "I want his deck, let me push one button to copy it then insert my CC to buy the boxes." "Now I Skilled Player!"

There is a reason adults play chess instead of checkers...

Hmmm... I get the idea, while u try to summon exodia silent magician gets stronger. Nice! But I think it's a bit agressive, if u r planning to summon exodia I'd add defensive backrow such as WoD instead of 2 Hey Trunade. You can counter furries this way but your main problem would be amazoness swordwoman.

So, has Batteryman not been tested enough to seed, or is it not even worthy of the tiers? At first glance, I'd say it's a new Naturia, only with more utility.

Is Gem-Knight really Tier 2?

I've fought some on Platinum before and haven't found any Gem-Knight user in Legend yet, but none of the one I fought really stand out though.

There are already people who reached kog with gem-knight so there's that.

The best Gem-Knight decks I've come across use "That Grass Looks Greener", so I also created a deck for the archetype with that premise and it's definitely high tier. Gradually more common in Legend as people realise the OTK potential.

any deck can reach KOG. well almost any. the reason gems have more KOG deck than those out-of-meta old deck is cuz they're new. though if they get the cards gems can certainly explode, they are still mildly inconsistent, i'd say KOG worthy at best.

EVERY. SINGLE. DUEL. I start with the SAME starting hand. Also only have 2 cards in my 20 card deck that I DON'T want in my starting hand that at least one always shows up and the other one is drawn in my first or second turn. Half the cards in my deck I don't even see in the duel. And I have a pretty consistent deck? Is it just bad RNG or what?

Just seems a lot lately the top 5-6 cards are all the same and the ones i want buried are always on top. 30+ duels today and it still feels the same.

I figured out a LONG time ago that they rig your draw. They also rig who you fight against based on your deck.

deck draw definitely rigged. i got only one witch raider in my 20 card amazoness deck but i drew him like 80-90% in the starting hand

Been away since they released the vampire booster set, jesus christ there's been a few more since then, I reached KOG with a Harpie deck, are they just redundant now?

Yup, haven't seen one Harpie deck since it became irrelevant a long long time ago.

Red Eyes Zombies is completely irrelevant but is somehow tier 1.5.

Hey I just want to know, is it a bug when there are 2 dyna heroes and you cant attack either 1 of them? I lose many duels because of this. If it is not a bug then lol fur hires are too op

If you have no monster destruction then you deserve to lose not only to FH but also amazoness due to amazoness queen.

Ah, the good old Dyna lock. Like the anonymous above me said, you should run some form of monster destruction in your deck. If you don't have that, try stunning them. Cards like Chalice, Floodgate, Canadia, heck even an econ take suicide move could work. However, when they have that full for hire lock on board, 2 dyna and a wizz, that's hard to beat unless you bait out Wizz.
