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.

Blue-Eyes Cosmo

Tier
1
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.

Red-Eyes Fusion

Tier
1
Cost
Premium

Six Samurai Synchro

Tier
1
Cost
Expensive

Shien's Dojo being added to the Semi-Limited List has certainly hindered this deck, but not nearly enough to completely kill it. With its ability to, once per turn, negate the activation of a Spell/Trap Card, Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En is still an incredibly powerful monster that can disrupt your plays and that this deck is able to bring out with almost unparalleled consistency.

While it’s true that Treacherous Trap Hole is a lot more difficult to implement, the “Six Samurai” archetype can always fall back on its own version of the Trap Card: a Trap Card that you always need to keep in mind whenever you are facing this deck.

Subterror

Tier
1
Cost
Moderate

Masked Tribute has definitely played a big role when it comes to the success of this deck and, while it’s true that similar situations haven’t lasted so long in the past, that’s not enough of a reason to dismiss Subterrors from the Tier List.

Subterror decks can be quite threatening, but they are also quite fragile whenever their Trap Card, Subterror Final Battle, is not available: they are unable to interact with the opponent and can easily get OTKed by aggressive decks such as Blue-Eyes and Koa'ki Meiru. Besides of that, Subterror may not be Top Tier Deck after the latest Duel Links Forbidden & Limited card implemented on 26 July 2019.

Tier 2

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

Geartown Turbo

Tier
2
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.

Triamid

Tier
2

Tier 3

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

Dark Magician

Tier

Cost
Very Expensive

Electromagnet

Tier

Cost
Very Expensive

Koa'ki Meiru (Neos Fusion)

Tier
3
Cost
Expensive

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, Maximus can still be added to the hand via Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru, but, if you don’t have Iron Core, 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.

However, the consistency of Koa'ki Meiru Deck might be getting lower after the latest Duel Links Forbidden & Limited card implemented on 26 July 2019.

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.

Silent Spellbook

Tier
3
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.

Why does this website even exist?

It's not affiliated to Konami, it's just a "fan made" domain created with malicious intend.

People should notice how there are only negative and hateful comments toward this game here (and also off-topic spams) GameA exists to create a bad reputation against Duel Links. On the other hand, the Google search engine helps to promote this sabotage by showing GameA as the first result when you search the words "duel links".

Google helps to boycott any company that doesn't belong to HUGE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS.

I think KONAMI actually thinks they are being "lured" into some kind of fight.

And they don't want to move a finger about this website.
Terrible idea.

And Konami is actually being pathetic, they should close this site. It's not good for their game.

heal from broken heart" Love spell from dr.Unity brought my husband back" I'm so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman" After 12years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he could come back to me, I was really worried and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a Love spell for me. 11hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day,our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before, All thanks to Dr Unity. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr.Unity is real spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast. Do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity now. Here’s his contact,Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp him: +2348055361568 ,website:https://unityspelltemples.blogspot.com ,your kindness will never be forgotten.
