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.

lol so much butthurt he must be in silver playing a brainless beatdown deck. These "meta" decks you can't actually just copy and hope the combos would work out on its own. Try to at least get to plat ok?

yeah because trying to play a deck competitively with no understanding of deck creation is intelligent af. netdecking is a thing, rather than complain about it, try learning those decks and countering them.

Lol. OP, git gud man, you know that a "meta" doesn't always guaranteed you to win? because the most important thing is to learn/analyze what's the most common decks that people use in your current ladder. So you can built&play a "correct" deck to counter it, no matter it's gonna be a "meta" deck again or not. Try to learn that now OP, don't just complain man, this site isn't the place for that.

Is there any future card that will every dethrone kuriboh as best card in the game. The only one that competes for best card with it is econ.
<< Anonymous

kuriboh is far from the best card in the game at this point
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
So u say kuriboh is not the best card but u don't offer an example. Name a card better then a card that flipps a guy to defense position without any way of them knowing it's coming and is very difficult to destroy and is invincible to toon kingdom effect and champions vigilance. Plus it fits into almost every deck. What card is better. Only econ rivals it.

econ is significantly better than kuriboh, and running both in the same deck is redundant and waste of deck slots in most cases, therefore, kuriboh is far from being the best card in the game.

How the FUDGE do you beat this deck? Every duel goes like this: - Opponent goes first everytime because of flying meatball's effect - Opponent summons pea with wings and special summons Tatsu - Tatsu's effect activates (as long as he is on the field you can't win and his attack becomes 9999, also toss a fixed coin. If it lands heads, you win) - Opponent wins So sick of this bullpoo.

I got 3 econs from ranked duels this past 2 months.. it doesn't matter that I have them tho. Everyone in Plat already had these cards, it actually just gives fair advantage to p2p players to stand a chance to get to plat and compete. Econs dont matter that much anymore, its what strategy (red eyes swarm, naturia swarm, toon un-interactiveness) that determines wins nowadays

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

Lol and relinquished isn't "to inconsistent"... i've slayed relinquished plenty with Venus Control...

Actually Relinquinshed is still good and consistent the meta hasn't that changed much.

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..

Try to rearrange your deck, you can go way far than plat with the naturia deck, also use Kaiba beatdown

Anti-Meta can't tier 1 because then it would be meta thats basic card game knowledge lol.
<< Anonymous(Player J)
Player J Reply
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. Continue...
<< Anonymous(Player J)
Player J Reply
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 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)
Inti Reply
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.
