Meta Decks and TCO

Post by Mr-ex777 on 28.04.17 11:13

The following is a tier list of Meta Decks in TCO.

Meta in TCO recently: Not many OCG duelists run around these days, but usually they run lots of stuff other than ramps now. Some of the classic ramp duelists do remain, but usually i see theme-ish decks and rogue decks now. As for me, i run everything in tco just to make sure that i am as versatile as i can be, but i usually run MaltNEXT.

These are the ranks for common meta decks on how well they perform in TCO:

Top Rank:

  • All Delete Dokindam (Impossible to counter unless you have really big spell meta that is)
  • 5c Jolly the Johnny (Surefire win, again if you don't see spell meta or get rushed)
  • Dormageddon (Despite Restrictions, it works really well, just make sure that the standard Jokers block build is really slow and you can get rushed)
  • Buster Repair (Beware of Onikamas)
  • MaltNEXT (Beware of VAN, Also it can be rushed pretty well)
  • Rosia Miradante (Excellent defense and lockdown powers, Beware of Onikamas)
  • Bashginus (Ridiculous Deck, almost like Giovanni in the past, Beware of Onikamas)


Middle Rank:

  • Redzone (Mono-Fire, Darkness Fire, Fire Water) (Can take care of almost anything, just beware of Onikamas/Senno)
  • Baki (Can take care of MaltNEXT and most soft rush easily, just Beware of Onikamas and don't get hard rushed, even very silly rushes can take care of Baki like Butter)
  • Heaven's Gate (Verry difficult to counter by standard beatdown, Just Beware of Onikamas, Senno, Deathmatch Beetle and Spell/Creature Trigger Meta, Blocker Meta also VAN, and DO NOT use it against Ramps because it just gives your opponent time to set up)
  • 5c Buster With Mad Dead Wood (One of the few cost trampling decks that can counter Onikamas and one of the few Dragon decks that can counter VAN. Also bigger chances of Magnum and Rafululu at the same time. Beware and don't get hard rushed however.)
  • Treva Puchohenza (Lots of Crazy Shield Triggers and Total Lockdown that makes most opponents surrender. Also Truce. Beware of invincible creatures however)
  • Mana Burn Ramp (Very Annoying and difficult to deal with and the bane of most people's existence, just don;t get hard rushed)
  • Graveyard Source (While not as fast as Redzone or Buster, it's still very dangerous in TCO and destroy most weenie rushes save for Southern Renaissance)
  • 5c Deadman (Very tough deck with extreme fatty spamming capabilities, just beware of Manalock and Rushes, even Very silly looking Rushes can kill you)
  • 5c Jackpot (Very annoying deck because of Nicol Bolas' Mass discard, one of the decks that are gauranteed to piss me off. Just don't get rushed)
  • Gatling Rush (Can outpace almost anything but gets killed if it runs into a rush stopper)
  • Goemonkey Bei B Jack (Very Efficient but Almost Nobody knows how to run it)
  • King Bolshack Rush (Outpaces lots of things, but don't get your stuff removed)


Low Tier:

  • Jokers Beat (Unfinished Deck, Stay Away until they add more resistances in it which they will)
  • Renaissance Rush (Too Slow and Frail for TCO)
  • Light Fire Redzone (Too Slow and Frail for TCO)
  • Cylinder Miradante (Dead by Onikamas)
  • Growth Buster (Dead by Onikamas, Beware of Revolution 0 Triggers)
  • NEX Miradante (Dead by Onikamas, sometimes goes too slow to work)
  • Bearfugan (Dead by Onikamas and Senno)
  • Mono Darkness Hellvorof (Too Slow)
  • LWD Discard (Too annoying to play and very weak to topdecking powerful finishers like Onimaru "Head" and 5000GT, Riot)
  • Mono Nature Sasoris (Too Slow and Frail for TCO)
  • Adamski Deckout (Too slow and Frail)
  • 9 Extremes (Totally killed by Onikamas and Senno, you can and will be rushed dead)
  • Bei B Jack J Eleven (Luck Deck)
  • Dragon Decks (Drama Etc.) (Too Slow, I've been killed by silly looking stuff using them)

Nice analysis, well done.
Bashginus - a big Zabi Mira+Volg Thunder's comeback. Babelginus and Buster'll get restricted IMO. Onikamas's crazy early game counter creature card, really hard to deal with. I bet it'll be restriced soon too.

So true, hah.

Any leaks or pure speculation?

August's DMD are a Dolgazer Ninja Strike deck and a King Queen Alcadeias deck called Alcadeias Requiem.
The new creature, Jack Alcadeias, holds King and Queen in his arms.

Thanks for the info, it seems to be interesting. I look forward to see new cards from Alcadeias family, it would be a nice revival, beacuse it's been a while since Wizards had released them.

Bringing King Alcadeias back would probe how insane OCG has become as of lately. I hope it won't come to that.

Dolgazer - Ninja Strike sounds fun!
