Yeah, I play CA and if don't get Hey, Trunade on the first turn I lose for almost every other deck on tier 1 list besides Sylvans. I hope Konami release cards to support ritual decks in the near future
But we can't do much against Geargias and Anki, so either Konami releases something solid with the new characters level cap (Alexys), or CA won't be playable at the current meta anymore. Perhaps they could release Natasha or Vrash cause the others decks are very OP
I think 3 Dakini is ok, but 3 MAR would be op. Send 1 monsters to gy isn't so devasting nowadays, but add this to invencibility and the potential 3700 atk (with Idaten's effect). Remember would not to hard use 2 Mar in 1 turn, so nor SSa, nor silvester, nor even Geargia could destroy Dakini easily.
But it's already time to free champion's vigilance.
Yes, tier 2.
CA for a long time will figure between tier 1 and tier 2 depending on the meta-game. Sylvan, made geargia and Masked very strong, and both decks are great for dealing with CA.
And it's not the first time that "CAffira" falls to tier 2. It will always be among the best decks for a long time yet.
SSA does not return to the meta-game while Sylvan is dominant.
Archfiend is tier 3 for me
I didn't build a SSA deck (I was focused on a Saffira deck instead) but I feel very sorry for those who spent time and gems trying to get all the necessary cards to a SSA deck just to see a minibox completely wrack the meta few weeks later
