Welcome to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Super Rare Awesome Chocolately Fudge Coated Mega Super Thread!

This is a thread for those that play the mobile game Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links or want to start playing it. I'll be updating the Tier List for the current archetypes, as well as adding information for any current events that are going on. Feel free to add your Duelist IDs, talk about cards, and ask any questions about Duel Links and if they can, they'll be answered.

Current Events [as of 5/25/2018]

Tristan Taylor has appeared! [Ends 5/31/2018]

This event will allow you to duel Tristan Taylor and get some rare cards. He appears at random (just like the Mai event) but dueling will let you fight him more often.

Bonus Duel Reward [Ends 5/31/2018]

This event gives you bonus duel rewards at the end of each battle. It's useful for farming characters to get rare cards.

New Week Campaign! [Ends 5/27/2018]

This event will give you a free pack exclusive to the event at the beginning of each new week in May. There's a guaranteed SR or UR in at least 1 of the packs.

Current Tier List [as of 5/26/2018]

Tiers are used to see how effective Meta Decks are. Meta decks are decks that are often commonly used by players in PvP. Meta decks will often change depending on newer cards or strategies.

Tier 0

Currently none.

Tier 1
These decks are very well rounded. They have ways to deal with almost every deck and have very few weaknesses themselves.

Masked HERO

Tier 2
Tier 2 decks have a bit more weaknesses than tier 1 decks but your opponent needs to draw them early on. An example of this is Hazy Flame, one of the best counters to it is Floodgate Trap Hole, which if you don’t draw at the start is a big problem.

Cyber Angel
Archfiend Emperor
Sea Stealth Attack
Red Eyes Zombie
Golden Flying Fish
Hazy Flame
Fire Fist Hazy
Gaia Plate

Tier 3
These decks are very strong but have either one big, or a lot of weaknesses. An example of this is Ancient Gears. If they destroy your Ancient Gear Castle early on (with Gladiator Beast Bestiari, Storm, Cosmic Cyclone) you lost a major win condition which could easily result in your loss.

Snipe Hunter
Ancient Gear
Gladiator Beasts
Control Dinosaur
Fire Fist Hazy
Destiny Hero
Lava Golem Weevil
Temple of the Mind's Eye Burn
Arkbrave Slash

Tier 4
The decks in Tier 4 clearly feel weaker than other decks higher up on the tier list. They can do the same stuff other decks high on the tier list do, but just much slower or less consistent. However when playing ranked they can still be piloted to KoG in the right hands.

Dark World
Dark Magician

King of Games

All of the decks that have been submitted to have reached King of Games!
