Default OCG Top Tier?

What's top tier in the OCG right now, particularly in Japan? Is their meta as diverse as ours is right now?

Blackwings are still the top deck I think. Woot.

Sounds about what I'd expect with them missing so many Saber cards.

Do they play Blackwings differently than we do, or are they just topping due to sheer volume of people playing the deck?

u can see Machina Gadgets working their way up cuz its busted >.>

blackwings of course

Scraps are actually doing rather well tbh not even trollin here, Machine Emperor Grannel Infinity (yes they have this guy...) does amazing work when u scrap dragon abuse

Elemental hero variants (probably the anti-meta) are doing well but they got busted stuff that we dont have like parallel world fusion.

(the above is not in any specific order)

Pretty much the only deck we use competitively that wasn't out in Japan first in some form is X-Sabers the way we have them here is because of how much of the deck is TCG exclusives..

I realize that japan gets the cards first, but if you look at what is ran there by the players, majority of the decks alone are blackwings

They also run their BW's in a much more aggressive manner than we do here

I thought Scrap Infinity would be very high up in the tiers too.

So you've never heard of proxies before, right?

TCG might not get the psysical cards until 3 months after OCG gets them, but we all learn about their effects at the same time, and lots of players in TCG make proxies and playtest the deck long before the actual cards are released.

So the whole theory "OCG makes everything first" is extremely busted.

The deck itself does well even with a meta defined by a combined cardpool, but can't win. As strong as the deck can be, MST and Book of Moon really do a number on it. Also, Phillippines have a few major differences from Japan's format.

We're all doomed anyways. In a few weeks we'll see a time paradox involving the Six Sams, and then it'll be Hero/Samurai/Scrap territory for the next year or two.

>__> Impossible. If anything, there'd be more to screw us over. The set is literally nothing but Sams and Nordics.
