A few months ago, I wrote an article on getting started in Duel Links. The article, now embarrassingly outdated, provided a clear path towards Duel Links’ ranked mode. However, when looking back, I realized I had neglected to give readers an adequate understanding of the current ranked climb. Because of this, I’ll be writing a series of tier lists which explain what the top decks are and what they do. This first list includes what I believe are the current top performers, though that’s subject to change with the impending banlist.Read more
Ritual Beast is an odd deck that exploded onto the WCQ 2015 scene, and disappeared as swiftly as it appeared. What will change for the deck, with the introduction of its new Link monster?Read more
Dinosaurs were one of the most popular decks of 2017. They saw consistent tops from the release of the Dinosmasher’s Fury Structure Deck through to the September 2017 Forbidden List. However, this list seemingly killed the deck’s competitive viability by banning Lithosagym and Denglong and limiting Miscellaneousaurus..Read more
There has been a lot of discussion and debate regarding Exarion Universe in Goat Format. Considering the time period it was released, and the state of the game at the time, it’s not surprising.

Goat Format is something, I believe, that needs little introduction. There’s a lot of information out there introducing the format; we don’t need to rehash that here. Instead, I want to focus on the Goat Format metagame.Read more
Other than the highly-anticipated Link VRAINS Pack imports and the exceptional Skulldeat, the Chained Dracoserpent, there isn’t a whole lot about February’s Extreme Force that TCG players are looking forward to.
Two of the three new archetypes introduced in the set, Tindangles and the legacy Mythical Beasts, seem destined for the back tables at best and the bulk boxes at worst.
Mekk-Knights on the other hand…well, I see a lot of potential in those guys.Read more
Dragon Rulers. Forbidden in the OCG, and Forbidden in the TCG. Time and time again, the level 7 Rulers have been referred to as “The best monsters ever printed”. First awakened in Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy of late 2013, these guys have been a part of almost every metagame that they’re legal in. But how do they fare in Trinity format?Read more
