Deck tier list

NOTES

The GameA Tier List is primarily based on King of Games decks submitted by users.

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).

No deck can currently be classified as 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.

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 🔥. 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?

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.

Lol this is by far the best meta we've had. I'm seeing a lot of different decks lately: Subterrors, Metaphys, Blue-Eyes, Red-Eyes, Koa'ki Meiru, buster blader, amazoness, U.A. and even fur hires. The game has improved a lot.

Go to Ranked duels

Make a list of the most played decks
I encountered :
11 Dinosaurs
4 Madolches
5 Nepthys
3 Lavals
2 SSA
5 Masked dudes
4 Prinzessin
4 Reactor dragon (yeah, only 4)

Total 43 matches

Whoever says Ancient Gears are going to dominate has no clue about the game.
That's why you some ppl here are mere commenters and not players, sorry dudes. It's just the truth.

>> Just take a look at this, a deck shared by [CD]Yehhey @DuelLinksMeta, King of Games 1st day of the Month - GODDAMN !!! This deck claps ! every single card is from events except canadias, but they are so old, so old that many people actually obtained them with gems by now. (or maybe even with dream tickes! THIS DECK CLAPS !!!

I stopped playing for a couple of months and came back about 1 week ago.

- Easy King of Games
- Easy DLV MAX

• No trick up the Sleeve
• No canadia
• No Breaker the Magical Warrior
• Bought it with gems (Purchase history shown at the end of the video)
• You can get a third copy of Dragon Spirit of White with Tickets.

• This of course means, the game is not 'Time demanding' at all. Decks who were released months ago can be 100% competitive.

Almost all my duels are shown here:

• Hope the video entertains you. (Before you say something funny, I upload videos like... every 2 months, I'm not a content creator.)

Koaki is the first tier 0 deck
far more dangerous than fure hire or sylvans before their nerf
staples like fth canadia dmf wod wr cc do nothing against koakis
you have to play spellbooks to negate diamond core but even so you will lose most of the games

Cyber Angels were introduced way too early and as a result were completely OP for their time, but not so much anymore since they are so vulnerable to backrow. At this point Koa'kis are better. They are probably some of the most annoying decks to face, right next to Anki OTK and Silvans. Fur hires were never as bad as this, and amazoness was pretty much f2p. Shouldn't have been nerfed imo.

The only deck worse than Koa'ki to face are annoying wevil parasyte garbage and, god forbid, bamboo OTK back in the day.

I'm hesitating to buy packs to make a Koa'ki deck because I know it'll be inevitable that Konami will nerf that deck to 🔥 next month. That's how it always happens. Happened to me with CA, Silvans, fur hire and SSA, and will happen to Koakis too, you just know it. What even is the point in trying to build a meta deck as f2p when it'll be nerfed next month :/
Dave
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.
