Six Samurai remains at Tier 1 due it's good representations and performances. The deck has access to a lot of strong tech and engine cards. Six Samurai has decent matchups across the board - which is useful in such a diverse format. It will likely perform well in upcoming competitions, alongside being a common pick for many World Championship participants’ standard decks.

Ancient Gears have multiple strong matchups in the format, and it has been performing quite well recently in the competitive scene. The deck is expected to perform well in upcoming events. In terms of recent deck building trends, many Ancient Gear decks are using multiple Loading... because it is a flexible tech card that holds value against matchups across the board.

The Desperado decks utilising Master of Destiny have been getting a fair amount of attention, performing well in the competitive scene. The deck has good draw power in a pseudo Pot of Greed, and an arsenal of useful spot removal at its disposal too. Some choose to adopt a Loading... variant, while others prefer using more backrow.

Triamid remains to be a top tier contender as a powerful control deck backed up by various useful trap cards. Paired with Balance , Triamid has unrivalled consistency in the format. It benefits from the popularity of Desperado decks - being well equipped for them with Loading... and Loading... . Strong results from Triamid in upcoming events are anticipated.


With the introduction of Loading... , Cyberdark initially received a boost, however, as more people started adapting to the change and learned how to play around it the deck got slightly weaker. It is still a top contender in this meta though.
