Title: Infinity Wars Meta Deck Tier list
Post by: keyranaway on September 07, 2016, 05:15:42 PM
Since everyone sucks i have decided to make a tier list for u plebs.
You could probably make top 10 in ranked with any one of these decks (minus one)
Album of all the decks used: http://imgur.com/a/YGLLC
TIER 1: Well-optimized decks with extremely efficient and overwhelmingly powerful combos and card synergies that makes losing against these decks feel helpless and unfair.

TIER 2: Competitive decks that have a few slight weaknesses (e.g., poor comeback mechanics or draw consistency); can still take games off top-tier decks with tech switches.

TIER 3: Average decks that aren't bad, but also aren't optimized or refined; decks that have styles not currently favored by the metagame.

TIER 4: Inconsistent decks that are unrefined, out-of-flavor, overly niche, or retired. Taking wins off upper-tier decks requires an intimate understanding of the role of every card in the deck.

Feartrops is Tier 1 (maybe not that decklist though), and so is Death Blast.  ;D

Also Cowmmando is at least Tier 3. I'm not joking, I have beat a ton of people with my optimized Cowmmando deck.

Ive spoken to a lot of people in discord they all agree that feartrops is tier 2 since it just has a lot of bad matchups. you may think its good because most rush decks are goodvs bad players. also everyone has been discussing deathblast quite thoroughly and we agree its T2 as well it might bump up to tier 1 if we can find a good build.

I've ran into a Feartrops deck in Ranked that won by Turn 5. This was after I killed his Klore Turn 1. The key word here is Turn 5 (Not 6), and it wasn't like I didn't try to defend either. He ran Distraction Drones. Feartrops also has strong match-ups against Tinkercide, Valuebots, and Death Blast.

I'm certain Death Blast is a T1 deck, it just hasn't been optimized to a high enough tier by anyone yet, because no one fkin plays the game anymore. Death Blast has the same purity as the old Heartbreak deck, which was quite strong. :o

I also noticed you didn't include 2 DoD/1 Ex Rush as a meta deck. That deck has humble, which shuts hermit down almost completely.

But meh, any deck built right can be Tier 1 or Tier 2 in my opinion. I don't consider myself a pleb, but if everyone else is just netdecking these, the Tiers are spot on.  ;D

You should probably delete mechborn midrange :P It's just a worse version of mechborn aggro

I do think it's very cool that people can now netdeck, because it helps new players get better at the game. But you shouldn't really use Alt Art cards or Premiums.

- New players, as seen above, don't know what all of the alt art cards are so it's confusing for them
- Unless you have 3x premiums, don't use them for netdecks it makes the deck look messy when you have 1 premium, 1 soulbound and 1 normal for every single card. It will also save you having to use 2 screenshots, which is also messy.

Martyr of Life and Death Blast are the kings of ranked at the moment.

Deathblast is definitely t1, but I have yet to be convinced about MoL ramp. I have played it a couple of times against some pretty decent players, and one time my opponent even got the martyr out on turn 6 or so even after I killed some of his ramp. However, I can't imagine it holds up well at all against deathblast and also is extremely weak to global single target removal spells such as verore kidnapper, humble, kidnapped by demons, or even just CTA. Imo it only seems t1 because there aren't very many skilled players playing ranked atm. It would be pretty difficult to beat a good player with it and it has a lot of pretty hard counters. It just seems op because it wins so hard when you do pull it off.

Another ranked deck that has slipped under the radar is 2ex/cov (2Rock Chuckers, Master of demon command), it's at least tier 2, stronger than DB in that matchup, it seems pretty good vs everything else due to how fast it is, the burn value and the late game.

You "Veteran" players have such a narrow perspective of the meta and deck building, I no longer take anything you guys say seriously. At this point your understanding of the game is comparable to Ian's.

I was a stern defender that "Death Blast" was a T1 deck, yet you all insisted I was wrong before. Now look at you guys defending "Death Blast" as a T1 deck. You guys clearly lack unbiases. Just because a deck can beat "Death Blast" doesn't mean it's automatically a T3+ deck.

I have come to the conclusion that most of you "Veterans" are just netdeckers, but with the arrogance to claim you know best about these decks. I was running 3 DoD with Infected Monk, Gaohan, and Meditating Monk before it was popular (and stolen as a DLC deck). So I know what I'm talking about when I say 3 DoD isn't good. You guys shoot down the opinions of new players so easily, so if anything you "Veterans" are the reason why this game isn't popular.

I would also like to credit ChalkBot for the 2Ex/1COV (2 Rock Chuckers, Master Of Demons). But in my opinion this deck isn't tier 1, it is tier 2 at best. As for the Martyr Of Life deck, it is a tier 2 or tier 3 deck at best as well. (Sidenote: I defended 2 DoD/1 Ex on this very thread, but again I was told I was wrong)

Happy netdecking.  ;D

How would Triple Overseers pair up against Death Blast?

They have lots of incidental life gain in Adaptive Drone, Heavenly Wish and Azael, also Purge the Unworthy basically blanks Death Blast. You could even run Solace's Peace, but I don't know if it's good/necessary. Overseers can switch from defense to offense pretty effectively and now have some new tools in counterspell and the like against control.

Something like this? (Idk I've never played 3os)

Command:
- Declarius
- Lilariah
- Adaptive Drone

Deck:
3x Lucca
3x Adaptive Drone
3x Cornicen
3x Zealous Protector
3x Soldier of Purity
3x Harbinger of the Law
3x Heaven's Assistance
3x Purge the Unworthy
3x Box of Wonders
3x Heavenly Wish
3x Banish
2x Xi
2x Azael
2x Cassial
1x Lilariah

Sideboard:
3x Solace's Peace
3x Counterspell
3x Yobo
2x Martyr Golem
1x Cassial

Thoughts?

Hmm, I suppose. I mean, MoL ramp is what got me to the number 1 spot and some of those wins were against decent players but the deck does suffer hard against rush, especially if any of the ramp is stalled along the way. It also suffers to decks that are heavy flying as well (Rhaziel is a pain if you don't have turn 2 fight or turn 1 sniper) and can be beaten by 30 cov due to the massive morale costs of large chars. However, it easily beats most other decks. Definitely tier 2, I would say.

Meh, faced that deck several times and it's not that strong. All it really has going for it is a strong early game. A single chain lightning on the rock chuckers completely destroys it's early game momentum though. It's definitely a solid deck though. If the rock chuckers last a few turns, the burn damage adds up.

"DoD isn't good"

Except that it is. It can beat Death Blast with the right sideboard and a strong early game to mitigate rush damage. As for your whole thing about Coyle Immovable dying to 3 aspirants, you're not seeing the bigger picture. His effect means he can block unstoppable chars and won't die to huge chars, which is extremely valuable. The implication that you would even throw Immovable out to block aspirants (who even plays them anyway?) Tells me you don't know what you're talking about.

Want to know what decks are bad right now? Look at 3p Sleepers, 3p GI and 3p FD.
All of these are weaker than, and usually lose to, 3p DoD.
Sleepers anti air is trash and any kind of grave removal is gg.
GI has a slow early game and lacks good removals besides the new Gorgon beam.
FD doesn't have enough tools to reliably finish in mid/late game.

Hmm well, considering I have faced and beaten death blast as well as all 3 of the above mentioned purities with my 3p DoD deck, including winning many ranked games, some of which games were against good players, I can tell you that I do in fact know what I'm on about. You're more than welcome to disagree with me, although the only way you can actually be correct in that 3p DoD is bad is if, I'm simply such a good player that my skill alone offsets the apparent weakness of my deck. If that's what you are claiming, thanks for the compliment  ;D

How's hitting top 10 with that GI deck coming along? I thought you said GI are OP and that you'd climb ranked with your deck? ::)

Stop trying to bait me to play this game. It's not going to work. I know for a fact I can climb to top 10 easy, but it isn't worth my time. After all I did say I was quitting Infinity Wars. With the slow queue times combined with poor balance decisions, even my ego and pride won't allow me to play the game, no matter how badly I want to prove Ben4d90 and Merlinix wrong. It is the logical choice to choose not to play, I will not let emotions get the better of me.
