OK so I was wondering what people thought what the top decks were/are. Im only going to do the first two that pop into my mind for each teir.

Teir 1
elemental dragons
madolche


Teir 2
derp worlds
fire fist

Teir 3
exodia
elemental heros

Any ideas what is the best or what is not the best. Please keep any arguments clean.

1. Wrong section. This section is for posting finished decks.
2. I don't think you have any idea what tiers are.
3. Derp Worldz will never be tier. Never.

As has been said, probably wrong section, but also you've over estimated at least 2 of them, under estimated 1, ignored Verz and Spellbooks as being alive, and seem to have little understanding of how the tier system works.

Basically it's going to become:

Tier 1:
Incarnates
Spellbooks
Chicken Fist
Verz
Technically Sacred

Tier 2:
Anything not mentioned that was meta last format.

Tiers are nothing more than opinionated garbage. Stop this madness.
Frog Monarchs just top 4'd.
Electrum OTK top 16'd.

Tiers aren't based on how boring the deck is to play.

Is there something I'm missing about Wind-Ups, because to my knowledge the deck is dead as a consitent competitive deck.

Also, With the mermails, don't they collapse with the release of Judgement and Ophion, just because they can't keep up with the rest?

Huh... people like putting Sacreds at tier 2.

it was more of a "WIND-UPS STILL SUMMON SHOCK MASTAH, THEY TIR 1!!!!11!" that I put Wind-Ups there, just giving the benefit of the doubt, I was about to do the same with Inzektors but eh, probably putting Inzektors as Tier 2 would've been more accurate.

Atlantean Mermails are still doing their stuff, both in TCG and OCG, if anything... their influence would be weakened thanks to Verz starting maining Forbidden Dress and Safe Zone thanks to Incarnate Dragons.

And Sacreds, well... the Tier 2 Decks were severly weakened because some Tier 1 Decks are just plain ridiculous, but Sacreds used to top quite often in the OCG (they have a few important Tournaments victories as well), heck... even after the release of LoTG and the Premium Pack, a Tournament that was won by Incarnate Dragons had Sacreds in the 6th place; before LoTG, Sacreds were the Tier 2 Deck with the most tops in the OCG.

Sadly, the distance between Tier 1 and Tier 2 Decks is ridiculous thanks to the brokeness of Incarnate Dragons, the insane amount of support for Fire Fists and, of course, a super stupid-in-design card such as Judgment Day.

It's odd, since through testing Sacreds are probably the closest thing to tier 1.5. At least in context to the rest of the stuff this format, and on a consitent basis. They've got like 1 bad match-up out of all the meta stuff. And even that one isn't an impossible game 2/3. They might just make the rogue deck of the format, given how little side material may swing there way.

Actually, what stuff do people think could be the most likely non tier 1 to top? Since even in this format, there are some stuff. Just so long as no one says Sams.

Verz Rabbit was good in the ocg but died out 4 to 5 months ago.

Hmmm, at the moment...

Tier 1:

- Verz Rabbit
- Incarnate Dragons
- Prophecies
- Fire Fist
- Atlantean Mermails

Tier 2:

- Six Samurai
- Sacreds
- Elemental Hero
- Machina Gadgets
- Karakuri
- Dark World
- Macro Rabbit
- Wind-Ups

Tier 3:

- Everything else.


E dragons are a bad excuse for Hieratics, they are too easy to counter. Also, deck doesnt become meta from topping one YCS. Agents should be on the tier one list, if not tier 2. Wind-ups are tier 2 undeniable.

Tell that to the OCG where they're completely dominating. And Verz are still topping, not surprising considering that Ophion is, by far, the best counter against Junon, Incarnates, the Fire Fists Synchros and Abyssmegalo. And they're starting to run Safe Zone and Forbidden Dress for further protection. They're still topping and winning important tournaments in the OCG.

I confess that I completely forgot putting Agents as a Tier 2 Deck.

With the risk of being completely biased, I have to recognize that Sacreds are, probably, the stronger Tier 2 out there; they were the ones with the most Tops in the OCG, and not surprising considering how favorable is the match up against Verz and how, with very little, can summon Shock Master and kill Atlantean Mermails.

In fact, they would still keep topping a lot... but Chicken builds (already strong) got even more support, Prophecies got a super-broken support and, well... nothing more to add about Incarnates, and Ophion being such an effective counter against those separated the Tier 1 Decks from the rest.

tiers reflect how frequently a deck tops a tourney, which means ocg-wise, e-drags and prophecy, and somemoddy move this to general or spam (does it even matter at this point?)

Have people completely neglected tier 0? Or am I just the only person that thinks it is a thing?

tier 0 means 1 deck dominates a format, and that unless you play that deck, you loose (goat control) it's not just some tier that's meant to place decks above tier 1

Sorry guys, seems like to me, the list goes like this:


Tier 1: Incarnate Dragon, Evilswarms, Prophecies, Mermails, 3-Axis Fire Fists (Probably missed something else here)

Tier 2: Six Sams( Derp Worlds, all the usual goodies here)

I can't even distinguish the tiers much because of the fact that Incarnate Dragons are the only things you see on Shriek.

Edit: I take back what i just said about Incanate Dragon being Tier 0, but everything just seems tier 2 when compared to it.
