The GameA Tier List is primarily based on King of Games decks submitted by users.
Decks in Tier 1 and 2 are ones that are known to have achieved good success against other decks/players.
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 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
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.
Geartown Turbo is a relatively recent addition to the game. This deck is able to Summon multiple 3000 ATK monsters with the ability to disable the opponent’s backrow on attack declaration in a single turn, quickly overwhelming the opponent and ending games.
Since both Koa'ki Meiru Urnight and the now Limited Koa'ki Meiru Maximus require Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru in order to function, it would be impossible to run less than two copies of it, which pretty much means that this deck doesn’t have access to Enemy Controller, Hey, Trunade! and Treacherous Trap Hole anymore.
Sure, Koa'ki Meiru Maximus can still be added to the hand via Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru, but, if you don’t have Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru, you can’t Special Summon it and, due to the fact that you only have two copies of that Spell Card in your entire Deck, you are not that likely to open with it. Consistency has definitely dropped, but Diamond Core alone can keep everything together.
Masked HERO is another deck that didn’t really get any worse: Mask Change and Masked HERO Anki are able to generate early OTKs and Destiny HERO - Decider is a fantastic card against Geartown Turbo and even Buster Blader. Destiny HERO - Celestial’s presence in the Semi-Limited List makes this Deck unable to run cards such as Hey, Trunade! and Enemy Controller freely.
These decks are very strong but have either one big, or a lot of weaknesses.
Dino Survival's End
This Control Deck has completely monopolized PvP lately, boasting, quite frankly, amazing results and carrying an incredible amount of people to KoG. Being so accessible and easy to build is certainly a big part of the appeal of this Deck, but that’s not to say that its spot on the Tier List is not deserved.
Karakuri Synchro is a remarkably powerful and consistent Deck. Karakuri Anatomy allows you to replenish the resources spent on Synchro Summoning and draw through your Deck.
A forum of this page is to discuss not your decks but Duel Links' tier list and current meta. If you need a help to build a better deck, please visit Deck Advice forum. We sincely appreciate your understand. Inappropriate comments will be deleted without any notice.
It's not like 004 was the only playmaker in the whole deck

I'm a F2P player and made this deck with the cards i own:
3x Lightray Diabolos
3x That grass looks greener
3x Wulf,lightsworn beast
1x Lyla,lightsworn sorceress
1x Jain,lightsworn paladin
1x Celestia,lightsworn angel
2x Dragon spirit of white
2x Protector with eyes of blue
1x White stone of legend
2x Alexandrite dragon
1x Arkbrave dragon
1x Dragon knight of creation
1x Eclipse wyvern
1x Silver's cry
1x Ancient birthright
1x Dragon's rebirth
1x Wall of disruption
1x Castle of dragon souls
1x Ultimate providence
It's just a fun deck and it wouldn't work with 20 cards since it depends on that grass looks greener to send light monsters from the deck to the graveyard,because monsters like wulf,arkbrave and diabolos need graveyard setup to work and like i said i'm f2p so i don't have the gems to use just for a fun deck.

I think people don’t get what tier 0 is. When a deck is tier 0 they’re seen almost all the damn time, they have minimal weakness and tramples most decks. Six sams are not as the same level as Fur Hire, Sylvan, or Cyber Angel during their prime. People reached kog by running decks made to counter the tier 0 deck. Six Sam is popular and good but not invincible.
Thing is you don't need to use a specific counter deck, they can lose vs lots of commom decks, what this guy tries to say is that the deck is indeed good and has a nice consistency, but it's not unbeteable
Six samurai is the best most powerful most consistent deck right now.. only noobs can lose using this deck.. u got armades for cipher dual wield and inishi is too much for any deck to handle i can see dojo and inishi get hit by ban list

Meh, Samurais are just tier 1
deskbots, hazy flames and parasite + golem beat them
For well over a year now every couple of months this game gets even worse, its nearly unplayable now. I guess konami wants to kill it of asap since most of the fans have already spent on it and its time to restart so everyone can spend again
