A Message from Dkayed, Doom of Fools

Due to the TCG's lack of Tier List/Top Decks support:

The Top Player Council is generous enough to now help out the TCG community with what decks they should be playing:


I googled "TCG Tier List" and gave it to the TPC, what's the worst that could happen?


The past few days I have forced myself to play the TCG again in order to make up for an actual accurate Tier List based on individual testing as well as experience. And from my personal Point of View, as someone with a TCG background, I can confidently say that Duel Links is in fact a lot more skill intensive than its counterpart.

So the very first thing I noticed is that most TCG players aren't even checking for delays, which is baffling to me. You will gain important information over your opponents cards this way. Every TCG player should be doing it.

Another thing I have observed is that cards like Loading... still burn for a lot of damage. Unhealthy if you ask me. It isn’t a surprise that players who took advantage of it immediately were the ones on the very top of the food chain, like TrifGaming.

However, I have some good things to say about the TCG as well. Previously strong meta cards in Duel Links like Red-Eyes Fusion are still seeing play, which I respect. But you guys definitely need to try and abuse Loading... before it’s too late. This card is busted! It also synergies well with Loading... . Have you guys not heard about Loading... ? Play it! This card is insane. Trust me, I am speaking from experience


The best thing about this format, is that you can calmly and slowly start talking to your opponent, just like that: “I’ll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.”, and they didn’t even finish power-shuffling.

Tier 1

Throw in a bunch of good dragons and it's obviously Tier 1. I always played Loading... turbo as a kid and defeated every NPC in Yugioh World Championship 2011! Basically you are just using the good cards that aren't locked behind an archtype and paired up with good extenders, to play through any kind of handtraps, you pop off. Conveniently they didn't got hit by the recent banlist at all. Must be nice being Loading... , Loading... , Loading... , Loading... , Loading... , Loading... , Loading... and Loading... . What? Halq isn't a dragon? Amogus.

DanielYGO, probably

I looked at a Dragon Link list. I didn't understand any of it but I saw there was a Crystron card, Halq something, that one must be BUSTED. Have you seen Crystrons? In its prime it was literally one of the most busted combo decks in Duel Links that could guarantee the unbreakable set-up of a single Loading... with a Loading... going first or a Loading... OTK going second, even in a 30-card deck! I wouldn't be surprised if this Dragon Link deck was carried on the back of the almighty Crystron.

Yo! I didn't get limited from events, and here's how it went down. I did everything wrong, man! I did everything wrong! And I didn't get limited! I KNEW I was gonna get limited!

I got the email, I got the explanation, I got the chance to explain myself. I just survived the banlist. I got a message from Dino Chad, that I didn't get banned from Konami. Konami doesn't even message me and tell me I'm free. So I'm still unlimited from my old video I made, Where I jokingly made a video- I jokingly, JOKINGLY, told, the world, that, no one reads me. EVERYONE READS MISC! Anyone with a BRAIN, would realize it was a JOKE! It was a joke, that was- it was a good joke at the time! The new format was going on, "Oh, Ha Ha VFD for game". It's a JOKE! It's just like Oviraptor Pass. It's a JOKE!
