Rating guide:

★★★★★ – These decks are the core of the metagame and are used by a high number of top players in Ranked. These decks consistently earn wins easier than other decks, and are commonly used to climb to Grandmaster and beyond.

★★★★½ – The decks listed here see slightly less play than the decks above and are less user-friendly, but are still extremely powerful and can perform equally well in the right hands.

★★★★ – Decks that are solid for achieving Grandmaster within the season. These decks form a decent percentage of the metagame and are less consistent than the Tier 1 decks, thus usually requiring more skill to pilot and climb ladder with quickly.

★★★½ stars – Decks that are very user-centric and require the player to be very proficient in their usage in order to climb ladder efficiently. While it is more difficult to achieve Grandmaster rank, it is definitely possible with knowledge about the metagame and flexibility in gameplay.

★★★ and below – Decks that are extremely situational as they are targeted by a large percentage of the metagame. They are usually used as techs to specific lineups during tournaments but are not suited for the ladder environment.
