Great Maju Da Stormberg Deck [Notes Updated]

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.

Tier 2

Tier 2 decks have a bit more weaknesses than tier 1 decks but your opponent needs to draw them early on.

Fortune Lady Synchro

Tier
2
Cost
Very Expensive

Silent Spellbook

Tier
2
Cost
Expensive

The increased consistency granted by the new Skill Light and Dark, which pretty much doubles the chances of having a Silent Magician in the opening hand, Silent Magician’s ability to negate the activation of Spell Cards like Neos Fusion and Red-Eyes Fusion and Spellbook of Fate still being an incredibly powerful card are all factors that certainly contributed to the return of this deck. Silent Spellbook is now more relevant and, thanks to the WCS 2019 Support Campaign’s UR Dream Ticket, more accessible.

Six Samurai Synchro

2

Tier 3

These decks are very strong but have either one big, or a lot of weaknesses.

Blue-Eyes Cosmo

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

After A Trick Up the Sleeve was changed, Blue-Eyes Cosmo Brain lost its incredible consistency together with its competitive viability, but the introduction of The White Stone of Ancients has brought this deck back to life. Snipe Hunter can enable quick OTKs on Turn 2, Dawn Knight can send The White Stone of Ancients to the Graveyard directly from the Deck and Beatdown! allows you to overwhelm pretty much any opponent.

Cyberdark Neos Fusion

Tier
3
Cost
Premium

Geartown Turbo

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

Geartown Turbo’s popularity is definitely tied to the steady rise “Control” decks have seen lately. Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon’s ability to shut down the opponent’s back row on attack declaration makes potentially devastating Trap Cards such as Drowning Mirror Force and Wall of Disruption completely useless.

Electromagnet

Tier
3
Cost
Very Expensive

Gren Maju Da Stromberg

Tier
3
Cost
Very Expensive

Metaphys

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

Metaphys Daedalus’s ability to banish all other face-up Special Summoned monsters on the field and Metaphys Tyrant Dragon’s immunity to Trap Cards make Metaphys a quite powerful deck that can easily stand up to Tier 1 and Tier 2 decks like Six Samurai and Blue-Eyes. Consistency is pretty good, but, even with Metaphys Dimension, the deck lacks ways of interacting with the opponent during their turn.

This. Cardians heavily rely on starting with Pine or Flower Stacking to work.

If they open with all of the high level Cardians with no way to summon them (which is not hard to happen btw, considering how much they run), they auto-lose.

Shame they didn’t make Crystal Bond an option- that’s the only card I would actually make that investment for

The new agents seem to be really something. But the deck that surprises me the most is flower cardians, specially because they only are R and N rarity cards

Well, WLC and PoTG are R and N rarity cards and they're both popular, so it's not that surprising

I still not quite sure how this deck works tho, I know they can destroy monsters and S/T that's cool, but their ATK is so underwhelming
