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 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).

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.

Agreed. I think Mushroom man and Raigeki are on the same level. All cards are created equal!

What? I was agreeing with you. A truly skilled duelist will be able to get just as much value out of Mushroom Man as Raigeki! It's all about how you use the cards!

Sooo guys..after playing for 9 months, today I decided to delete this game. I was already thinking about it for a while but this week's event covinced me the game isn't worth playing . I've built a great deck, and was super excited about it. I went from plat 1 to plat 5 with 16 wins in 18 games. I had a win streak of 14 and only lost to toons. I t looked like I came up with an own deck that will wasily take me to kog. The next 3 days tho my win rate dropped to like 40%, and I went back to plat 1(I had a win streak of 8 in this period too tho). So that made me realise how stupid the ranked system is. Skill doesn't matter almost at all. It.s almost only about luck. Your starting hand, the cards you draw, Your opponent's cards, your opponent's starting hand. I even think now, kog is for those players that are lucky enough to get good matchups and starting hands. I don't believe it's because they play well. You can reach kog or be stuck in plat 1 with the exact same deck. Luck plays a way bigger factor in this game than it should in my opinion. And this weakness of the game is even more emphasised by the ranked duel system. Getting 5 wins in a row requires a fckin lot of luck, no matter how good your deck is. You can have the godliest deck and may still not be able to get to kog just because of how much luck kog requires. I really think the current format needs some serious change. it should be rather like win 4 games outta the last 5 and promote. This consecutive win thing is bullshit. Win rate should be the thing that matters, not the luck that is required to win 5 games in a row

Lmao you probably just played his deck badly. Technical play is super important for getting kog. It's so easy if you understand how to play the game well lmao.

What about doing a magic approach? Where you can sack your whole hand once for a redraw and if you decide to sack your hand again you loose a card? It would relieve a bit of the starting hand problem and gives you a fairer shot of not getting a trash hand

I'm sorry but how didn't you realise this game is heavily shaped around luck at the very start? Like it's a card game... hello?
The whole point of kog is to be difficult to reach it. Why would it be easy?

Strange, people usually hate the most popular deck... or should I say: "Those who plan to boycott duel links always hate the most popular deck while claiming to be "the general public"(?),

Promoting hate against the most popular decks makes the boycott easy, that's how they plan to get rid of a competitor in the market and push their own game.

It has happened to Microsoft as well.
Do you Remember that: "XBOX has no games rant"?. It was created to deceive the general public and boycott Microsoft, so they can push the sales of their HUGE multinational corporations such as Sony.

Wow masked hero is in the meta for almost 7 months. Nicely done Konami, glad I bought the deck back in the day and Zero regrets so far. I won't really bother if you limit it soon or whatsoever, I already have my Buster Blader deck (purchased it with gems!). But this deck will remain forever as one of my very favorites.

It seems like as soon as the new box arrives, this deck will be left out of the current meta. Play it while you can.

If you're reaching kog it's because you're running a meta deck. Listen to me when I say you have no originality when you copy these decks. Do you feel like more of a winner because you're using a deck you didn't even come up with? I'm not some butt hurt kid who keeps losing, I realize this is just yugioh. But I grew up playing it and would like the integrity of the game to come back to it . Who the wants to keep playing draw out, fire king, inflict life points, or of course the red eyes decks? This right here just shows what kind of sheep live in this game. No thought for yourself.

And pray for rngesus. On my promo match to kog had to fight with red eyes last gamble that use providence on 3 of my phoenix before last gamble and last gamble roll 6. He already been bless with luck with starting hand and draw after that plus last gamble luck. As conclusion this game is 85% luck 15% skill. If u play this game long enough u know its true

I think I have a serious question for the haters of this deck. What is the point of releasing new decks if you are not going to play with them?, sylvans came out, you didn't play them, amazoness were released, you didn't play them either, and now these cats "fur hire" arrived and you still complain. What do you want?, perhaps you want a very exclusive deck, highly expensive, but then you'll have the excuse to call duel links "pay to win". It seems to me, that the most noob among noobs want to condition people's opinion, our opinion. The deck is cool and fun to play and also not very expensive.

Because EVERYONE uses it. And is not like the deck is fair, if you encounter someone using the deck, just surrender because you can't do ANYTHING against it. The worst part is that is a deck of furries.

^ K, so guys this is the conclusion.
New Meta --> complaint --> nerf --> new meta --> complaint --> nerf --> and so on till we dont have enough gems to spend unless we pay $$$ for it.
This is what konami wants, and they are laughing right NOW !

well, there are plenty of free to play decks in duel links, you don't really need the last deck to win as long as you know how to play.
If you don't know this fact, well, maybe you are not a player :o

The thing is, Konami treats Anti-Meta players with wanton disregard, and tell others they try to make a diverse meta...

>_< well, what can I say man? this weirdo, this troll that keeps spamming: "this game sucks a sssssss" every day in the board, trying to convince everyone to leave the game is actually some kind of mentally sick idiot who is always thinking about one thing: "money".

Every day repeats the same stuff man wtf seriously. His hate for Duel Links is real.

You know, maybe if we actually spend like 3$ in the game this idiot will finally learn his lesson and stop acting in such lame way. >_<!

I hope you don't take this as a personal attack, because it's not, but let me tell you one thing: I have no sympathy for hypocrisy.
Let's say a random person actually posts something related with the game, (some deck, some good drop, anything). Then you and/or any other guy start calling such person: "meta slave", "cock smoker" or something like that.

First draw = 4 cards,
Blue boi into library, library into secret, secret into master, master into fate, set fate.

The best play without grass can mill your deck from 30 cards to 22 cards (counting the first draw). Monster gate depends on luck, I don't play it anymore.

There are plenty of non expensive kog worthy decks.
Spellbooks + grass looks greener
Gem Knights
Amazons
Koaki meiru
Fur Hires
Psychics
Snipe Hunter decks
Hazy flames
ALIENS

If you can't farm around 3k gems, please don't call the game "expensive" lol

No need to be so dirty. "a couple of UR cards" you are not fooling anyone cuz ur deck is way more than just a couple of UR cards, URs and SRs from so many different boxes. Either you have no life just to grind those gems or you pay tons of money to Komoney just to even enjoy the game, something f2p players would never be able to do.
