The GameA Tier List is primarily based on King of Games decks submitted by users.
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).
No deck can currently be classified as 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.
Geartown Turbo is a relatively recent addition to the game. This deck is able to Summon multiple 3000 ATK monsters with the ability to disable the opponent’s backrow on attack declaration in a single turn, quickly overwhelming the opponent and ending games.
These decks are very strong but have either one big, or a lot of weaknesses.
Buster Blader DNA Surgery
Since both Koa'ki Meiru Urnight and the now Limited Koa'ki Meiru Maximus require Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru in order to function, it would be impossible to run less than two copies of it, which pretty much means that this deck doesn’t have access to Enemy Controller, Hey, Trunade! and Treacherous Trap Hole anymore.
Sure, Koa'ki Meiru Maximus can still be added to the hand via Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru, but, if you don’t have Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru, you can’t Special Summon it and, due to the fact that you only have two copies of that Spell Card in your entire Deck, you are not that likely to open with it. Consistency has definitely dropped, but Diamond Core alone can keep everything together.
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. Inappropriate comments will be deleted without any notice.
not really, Dakini Spam is still kinda OP. It's basically Nephthys Ritual, but faster.

I can't believe this random guy spamming about boxes being "rigged" is serious. The dude simply opened the whole box and then downloaded the Black Rose Dragon picture (maybe from this website) and then copy-pasted the card in the screenshot with only 1 pack left. Truly disgusting.
Though judging by his 23 cards remaining I bet he had that too.

My "Buster D." using free gems got me to KOG...
Anti Six Sams...
Gold to Platinum...
Initially I used Kaiba's balance from Gold to Platinum with a decklist similar to this one, but without the Red-Eye cards, instead I used 2 dimensional prison trap cards and a Lava Golem.
Platinum to Legend...
It was difficult climbing from Platinum to Legend, because of Weevil stall burn decks I constantly encounter during the climb. Regardless if I get to draw the best 4 cards when I go first or the perfect combination of 5 cards when I go second, I still always end up losing after I get to summon the paracide and my monsters get to become tribute to their Lava golems.
I can pretty much win 75% of the time with any type of deck, but Weevil with Amazoness combined deck plus Lava. On top of that, I get to face against them 50% of the time which makes me unluckily lose without a decent fight.
Remembering the principle of my card itself that inorder to defeat the Dragons, you must become a Dragon yourself.., I decided to use Weevil's paracite infestation to counter Weevil and from then on was able to win 50/50. However, this isn't enough to get me to a Legend rank.
I started dropping other Trap Cards and just keep 3 DNA surgeries and 1 Treacherous Trap Hole to be able to optimally use TTH since it requires no other Traps in the graveyard for its activation. To anti against Six Sams, I added 2 Cipher Soldiers. I keep winning against Six Sams if they don't get to draw their dual wield early. I also win 80% of the time against any Kaiba dragon type decks.
Even facing the same Buster Blader allows me to win 90% of the time, because of my paracide. In addition to this, a new Red-Eyes structured deck has been released for a very cheap price. That's how I built the deck that got me to KOG.
The idea actually is invest in a deck that you trust. I built my own Red-eyes Buster Paracide deck that got me to KOG and I didn't spent all of my gems.., in fact I still got around 4k... I answered Quizzes to earn most of it for free. Doing so would also give me a vast knowledge of how other decks out there works to be able to play more accurately against them.
