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.
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.
