Our Tier List is best accompanied with our in-depth metagame reports. The full article has more information on the decks: How their ranks are justified, how to play the decks, and how to build the deck with alternate cards to accommodate for different collections.

Tier Explanation

Silent Performer: Decks with a very little presence in the metagame, yet showcasing a cube average and win rate worth of being a tier 2 or better deck. Often times, these can be archetypes with a nice gameplay, left unchecked in the current environment, or decks on the rise, which found a few good match-ups to abuse.

Tier 1: Tier 1 represents decks with all the upsides we would be looking for to rack up Cubes. They have good match ups in the current metagame, offer different play patterns during a match, and often have the ability for explosive or surprising turns. These should be decks worth investing into in order to climb for the coming week.
Cube Average > 0.5

Tier 2: Tier 2 are very good decks but with a weakness holding them back – either not being as reliable in its draws as Tier 1 decks, countered by another popular deck, or still being a work in progress as you read this. A good pilot could probably take these and have the same results as with a Tier 1 deck, but their play patterns are more difficult to enact compared to the tier above.
Cube Average > 0.35

Tier 3: This tier is made of decks that have a pervasive issue compared to Tier 1 or Tier 2 decks. Usually, Tier 3 will be a mix of decks on the rise that don’t have much data, old archetypes on the decline, decks that require substantial experience and/or knowledge to pilot properly, powerful decks that aren’t well positioned, or niche decks.
Cube Average > 0.20

Tier 4: Off-meta decks that have fallen off in recent times, or counter picks that rely on specific match ups to stay afloat competitively.
Cube Average > 0.00

Budget: Decks that consist only cards in Pool 1 and 2 but are still capable of competing with an experienced pilot in a similar Collection Level, Rank, and MMR range. See our matchmaking guide for more details. For more beginner meta decks, we suggest you start with the Pool 1 decks, Pool 2 decks, Pool 3 decks in accordance with your budget and Collection Level.

Our Tier List is best accompanied with our in-depth metagame reports. The full article has more information on the decks: How their ranks are justified, how to play the decks, and how to build the deck with alternate cards to accommodate for different collections.

Tier Explanation

Tier 1: Very high Win Rate decks over the last week. These decks look great in the current environment, either because of their overall strength, or thanks to a few match ups they can abuse. Depending on which reason prevails, a deck in Tier 1 can be considered one of the best archetypes in the game, or a great counter to the latest trending archetype.
Win Rate > 60%

Tier 2: Strong decks that are either not completely refined or have a weakness holding them back from Tier 1. When everything goes according to plan, these decks can reach the top of the mountain. However, considering one has to win a lot of matches in a row to successfully run the gauntlet, it is unlikely one of these decks will not face a counter or a deck with a higher points potential that it will have to overcome at some point during a full Conquest run.
60% > Win Rate > 55%

Tier 3: Weaker synergies compared to Tier 1 or Tier 2 if we look at their potential or match up table. Tier 3 decks will typically be decks that can make the most of a metagame that has completely forgotten about them (or if one of their good match ups is particularly popular). As such, if we add in the surprise effect, these decks are able to compete against the best.
55% > Win Rate > 50%

No matter which Tier a deck is ranked in, keep in mind that they represent one of the Top 10 or 15 archetypes in the game for Conquest. Also, decks with less than 1% representation are left out, as their sample size is too small to give us a real representation of their strength.
