Black Lusty Soldier
A lot of hate for this guy but he is much better than MoBC at this point with his support. Easy 1st turn summon no matter what hand. Lots of OTKs so far.

You guys should really recheck the meta, Gravekeepers, Relinquished, Harpies, and Last Gamble Dester Twister are the only T1 decks, Tea Burn, and Venus are to inconsistent, and statue control doesn't have enough early game to stabilize consistently

They can just use Restart or Harpies Hunting Ground instead.

Gravekeepers are Tier 1 as they can use Soul Exchange and Econ consistently
Of all the matchups people have trouble with, GK is king.

Uses econ to counter. Name it a counter in conjunction with a swarm deck. Get asked if he calls it a counter and then ends the line with think before you comment. Oh the irony..

Anti-Meta can't tier 1 because then it would be meta thats basic card game knowledge lol.

When the Current Meta begins to change or If something new gets introduced which begins to climb the later. The Anti-Meta decks will than lose there effectiveness. The reason why is because the Meta has shifted. Meta decks which were played by the tons start to fade out. The result is the Anti-Meta decks which are made against them begin to fade out.

The result is you see Anti-Meta decks start to trickle down to Tier 2. It is because something new has predominately taken over which pushes everything else downward. Basically, The majority of Tier 2 downward are often filled with past meta decks which kept trickling downward. This is how it usually works in a nutshell.
<< Anonymous(Player J)
Player J 25days ago Reply
Just keep in mind that just because they trickle down to Tier 2. It doesn't mean that they can't beat Tier 1 decks. It usually mean's that something else more popular came along which is being predominately played in the Top Tier.
<< Anonymous(Inti)

Regardless realistically Clown Control is tier 3 since it loses easily to Harpie Ladies and Weevil Burn. @Player J The meta is actually Harpie Ladies Relinquished Three Star Demotion Gravekeepers Tea Burn.

How about you pull your head out of your butt because your advice here is obsolete. Not everybody started the game when ultimate Rising packs were out. How about you use that thing between your shoulders called a head and help those who have not started the game when ultimate Rising packs were out and make some decks with the current packs in game or is that too hard for your brain to figure out. Jesus You're supposed to be helping people you're not doing your job morons

why the fuck are you blaming them admins? blame konami, it's konami's fault that they removed one of the best (if not the FUCKING best) booster pack in the game. just suck it up son, life as a pvp duelist in this game is hard without ultimate rising, i have every component of HHG's deck but them Order To Charges. No way i can get to KOG. But at least i'm not a whiny little bitch.

Whise words. On the other hand, why did they remove ultimate rising from store? all other packs are useless without at least one of this packs

You do realize that it's not writer problem that the current meta most OP decks got cards which cannot be obtained?

This list provides Example Decks of the most powerful Decks players will be facing in PvP. "The most powerful" are obviously built with all cards in the game in mind. Also, players can easily go to their Recipes and see alternatives. Copying Decks to the last card is a terrible idea anyway as a lot of success comes down to personal preferences and playstyle. It's still a luck-based game afterall.

Cut Mooray, the two last traps and 1 Suijin. Hammershark is a great addition. (but not with starboys, without EC or MW thats just retarded)

https://duellinks.gamepress.gg/deck/mako-hammer-shark-deck-mythic-depths Try to build something like this, it's one of the best Mako decks that everyone uses right now, very top tier, and the maker of that deck is really good, he plays a ton of Mako.

I was reached gold 4 with this deck. If i didn't face harpie lady deck maybe i can go tier 2.
<< Anonymous(I believe you!)
I believe you! Reply
Habieboer than does the following play: -SE his opponent monster leaving them with no monster on field. -Brings out Beast of Talward -He sets Michizure -Equips Gravity Axe + Black Pendant. His monster than has about 3500 or so attack. -He does 1 massive hit. Reducing his opponent life points down to about 500. At this point the game is already over. Continue...
<< Anonymous(I believe you!)
I believe you! Reply
The reason why is because even if his opponent can kill or get rid of the Beast of Talwar. The Black Pendant is still equipped to the monster. Which means if Talwar dies or goes back to the hand I.E anything. The Black Pendant will hit the grave dealing 500 damage to the opponent who is already that low. Habieboer is declared the winner & the crowd goes wild! Yes, Habieboer will reach KOG!

Lol... You do realize that you skip battle phase if you use soul exchange right? Therefore habieboer is declared stupid. Period.
<< Anonymous
I believe you! 31days ago Reply
Yes, everyone knows soul exchange skips battle phase. Does it look like Habieboer cares? He will pass 1 turn to make his opponent sweat. The threat still endure! The play will still continue on his next turn. Resulting in Habieboer as the winner! V for Victory!

there is a new pack...U guys really should update that page! Machines/Fairys/Harpyies are Tier 1!
Just look at the top ranks on KC Cup!

Let's be real. Every one of you use the same cards no matter what deck you create. Sphere kuriboh, mirror wall, enemy controller, 4 star lady bug of doom, windstorm of et, jerry bean man and like 5 other lol. And you cornballs that spend hundreds to get doubles of sphere and mirror wall cuz you can't be creative and win without them lmao.

You know that the final qualifiers were just grinding, right? So the person who has the most free time is going to win anyway.

"Just grinding" << kill me please, lemme tell you dude, doesnt matter how much grind you did during wcs, if you're a scrub, the result will always be -minus. The grinding system sucks? Yes. But those in top 10 are no joke, why? Because they were able to stay on top despite the Point System that being used in the final qualifier was "Elo".

There is a truth about things "grind much and you'll win it". I played only 2 hours a day because of my busy schedule and managed to make top 100. My winrate 76%. I believe i could make it at least top 3 if I have more free time since i beat the no 5 guy once. Terry666

It does require a lot of grinding but you still need a very high win rate to actually progress. a 100k-ish DP you get +1k for a win and -2k for a loss. Even if you have a 70% win rate you won't see much progression

I used this deck to climb up the rank. What do you guys think?

Except the fact Electro can target set spells too... I understand you're running equips but if you're going to have things like Leotaur, Bazoo, and 4 Star lady bug, etc... there's NO reason you shouldn't be able to take down electro so you're points seem irrelevant and not using MW because it's for "noobs" is stupid

What are you talking about? Sergeant Electro targets SET cards, can't you read? You're no use.

Managed to get kog with a variation of this deck. Felt good
Sgt. Electro is in the same pack with Venus, Warm Worm, Golden Apples, Pinch Hopper, Warrior Dai ...
The reason for spirit invitation is simple. Free loss of 500 LP each turn. However I like burning...
