This will be the last update from this current Top Player Council, expect a fresh set of eyes next week!
This will be my last tier list update for some time! Thanks for reading my thoughts, this role has been fun!
The meta is in a very healthy spot and is probably the most diverse meta we have seen with at least 10 competitive decks all of which you will be seeing in top cuts. Without any new releases, the meta in a tournament will be different each week as players adapt. There is no clear best deck, and the lines between tiers are blurred. Winning events has come down to correct meta calls, deck building, technical play and a little luck. A far cry from past metas.
Subterrors stay Tier 1 for the consistency, power and ability to continue pressing forward and OTK even while playing back row. Having access to a large plethora of back row featuring powerful cards like Loading... , Loading... and the almighty Loading... without slowing it down separates this deck from the rest.
Ancient Gears have finally won an MCS, they fare quite well against a number of popular decks including Subterror and Triamid. It has reasonable match-ups across the board but as usual it is prone to its own bricks.
Red-Eyes is suffering from increased side deck hate but is still capable of winning events. A very strong deck but don't expect a free ride.
Spellbooks have been really powerful lately in tournament top cuts due to the fact that the Loading... recycle + Loading... is such a hard board to usually out and they pull this off more consistently with the use of the skill Light and Dark .
