This Tier List is being made with respect to the upcoming KC Cup Stage 2 this weekend.

Tier 1

TPC Comments


Darklords have proven their strength through the whole week and topped several tournaments including the MCS. The ability to setup 2 Monster Effect negations on your first turn makes decks like Blue-Eyes, Cyberdarks, Triamids, Flower Cardians and Magnet Warriors basically unplayable, because they heavily rely on their monster effects. Loading... also puts a lot of Pressure on Desperado decks with its non-destruction removal.

Desperado is probably the 2nd best deck in the current format. It is able to main cards like Loading... / Loading... , which have a major affect on the Darklord strategy. It stops them from summoning their monsters and activating their effects. But the downside is, if you dont open those counter cards you have a very hard matchup against Darklords.

Recent tournaments, the MCS especially, has proven that Darklord is a dominant force amongst the meta. The deck boasts immense power alongside a relatively flexible engine that allow it to prevail in a competitive environment. It is expected to be the most represented deck in the event.

Desperado is able to adapt its tech cards to comfortably defeat Darklord in the KC Cup. Suggestive of such, a possible trend would be the inclusion of tech cards like Loading... in the main deck. Being the flexible deck that it is, Desperado is a good pick for the KC Cup.


MCS 22 proved how dominant Darklords can be. It's going to be the deck to beat during the KC Ccup, however what is considered the best deck going into these events rarely wins.

Thanks to powerful side deck cards like Loading... used in the main deck is able to keep up with Darklords. The deck is definitely a solid choice for the KC Cup.
