Deck Tiers? What are they?

Post by SetoKaiba » Fri Dec 20, 2013 12:12 pm

Can someone please explain deck tiers. So I understand it better because my friend has tried to explain this but he lost me.

i got u right now. its like a deck ranking. so teir 1 is one of the top decks. then 2 is lower but almost as good. three and so on, are playable but not as great or competitive as above teirs. the list goes on from there.
an example would be: dragon rulers were teir 1 this format.

They get put in the tier they do based on how good they are, no one decides it, it just happens. So for example, if you watch basketball, Miami Heat and the Pacers would be tier 1 this season. Other teams, like maybe the celtics, would be tier 2. and then the teams that have no chance at going to the playoffs at all would be tier 3. No one picks what teams or decks go in what tiers, it just kind of happens

what do you guys think is the lowest teir for a deck? my friend and me where discussing this just now. i said teir 100 would a 60 card deck that runs return of the 6 smaurai...but no samurai. they run jar robber and gryphons feather duster and what not. they have 1 tour guide. just one. with no targets. and theyre extra deck is 1 sanwitch. and 1 dragon master knight. they have kuriboh lvl 10 and 9, but no kuriboh or transcedent wings or anything. they have dark armed dragon but only 2 dark monsters for him. etc.

That deck will never be a tier. it'll be infinitely negative.

The way tiers are determined is by how many tops in major tournaments. Once they each a percentage of tops then they get tiers. By the standards trollnomi put out the only tier one deck the last 2 formats were drulers because theu took so many tops but theu didn't have enough to be classified tier 0.

Tiers are determined by the meta. I doubt anybody is playing that deck at any large events, so it wouldn't have a tier as it's not part of the meta.

The lowest tier would be 3.
