Deck tier list

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).

Tier 1

These decks are very well rounded. They have ways to deal with almost every deck and have very few weaknesses themselves.

Vampires tier 0?

If it ever becomes T0 (which I doubt), it would be the most expensive T0 in the game lol

You need to open a total of 4 boxes (2 main 2 mini) just to get the most optimal build. Even worse part, you need multiple copies of an UR from one of the main boxes.

I‘d say that Spellbook is still Tier 1 because it does very well against Fur Hire (and also pretty decent against every other top tier deck)

as a MH player i tell you they are the second best deck after fur hire. they get countered by amazoness but that is it. they dominated every other deck. it is an extremely aggro deck and very consistent. that is why they rank it below amazoness, its counter but against the rest decks it wrecks them

How does that favor the point that it's the second best deck after Fur Hire?
Amazoness is like 50% of all decks in Plat and Legend.

After playing this game for over 6 months I can say with confidence that it is a solid piece of poo

In my opinion, releasing a very strong (relatively cheap) deck, and then nerfing it (and almost killing it) isn't a good way to keep game balance. Nerfing has to be an exception, not a rule. Either making a medium consistency strong deck, or making cards to strengthen other decks consistency.
I'm afraid that each of the upcoming boxes will just come out with monsters with huge powers, more than previous ones, to keep an impression of creativity. In fact, such policy just take the fun out of the game.

(Sorry for the english)

it's true though! nerfing shouldn't be normal. they should actively try to avoid it unless it's absolutely necessary

Conclusion, noobies want konami to limit donpa, recon, and wiz. Making the deck completely die.
Thats to show you how much stress these lazy players experienced nowadays.
And yes, they are also the players who make 30 cards deck with equips and trap jammers.

First off

THE "Fur Hires" deck is broken, and needs a nerf immediately. When you look at the Duel Links card usage reports and 7 of the top 10 cards are from the same deck ("Fur Hires". There is something cancerous going on. The engine is too similar to the Sylvans and NO one liked the game during that period. So why is this allowed. Worse than that is the recent trend of running "Wall of Destruction" and/or "Treacherous Trap Hole" ×2 support with FH decks making them adsolute robo-win decks. They have absolutely infected the Gold tier and above levels.

40% in Gold Tier
66% in Platinum
60% in Legend.

That is ridiculous, and a Meta game poison. Worse, the only way to stop FH is too run specific cards that ruin other deck engines. I literally had to run multiple "Needle Ceiling"s just to deal with FH decks.

KONAMI really needs to do something before the next KC Cup about this

FH is obviously going to get nerfed. Just like Sylvans, most players play Fur Hire because it's very cheap and it gets them to KOG. So why should they spend money or gems on the next boxes?

To all of the fur hire defenders saying the deck is "easy to counter" cards like memory loss, canida, and chalice are all SR's and UR' from all DIFFERENT boxes. By stagnating the meta with Fur Hires people who want to use other decks are forced to spend money and gems getting the expensive counter cards thus profit. The fur hire players are single handedly destroying the game for people who dont want to be sheep and slave to the meta.

Furthermore, all of them are unsearchable (not every time you're gonna have them in your hand turn 1) AND requires you to go first to be of any use, otherwise the FH player would swarm the field first rendering those cards useless, thus making those cards merely a check, not a counter like those people claimed.

I regretted it. Bring the Dkayed class back to the Tier list, because the trainee you're upgrading knows little about competitive DL.

So why fur hire returns to tier 1? they weren't limited to be able to fall a tier, haha so you recognize you were stupid thinking they are tier 0?

actually i played both fur hire and vamp deck while i was at legend and i played the match up from both sides.. i just played the legend 3 with masked hero. vamps can win fur hire. they bring out bigger board than fur hire so fur hire struggle. but vamps rely on kingdom to deal with big threats so the other decks with spell removal can easily play against it. so that is why vamps are not op >

> players that want to rank up will use strong decks even if they are bored of playing the same deck. and what you said about being KoG sucks is not true. you get gems for getting there and once you are there you dont care for playing the top deck. you dont care for losses. so the reason you said that is cause you cant get to KoG.. i play the game for 2 months and reached it twice, it is easy

Once u reach KOG ppl will stop playing seriously and start experimenting decks with few playing for fun, last season in KOG rank all I was seeing were zane cyber style fusion decks, like 10 zane cyber style in a raw ( just like fur-hire in legend rank).
