Alchemy Tier List and Rankings

  • Tier 1: Decks are selected by their strong win rate versus other decks (greater than 50%), the probability of encountering them, and a minimum meta share and threshold being met.
  • Tier 2: Tier 2 follows the same parameters as the tier 1 decks, but don’t have as high of a win rate (less than 50%) and/or meta share.
  • Tier 3: Decks that either have a low meta share or a low win rate.
  • Tier 4: Off-meta decks – not enough meta share to be reliable or a low win rate.
Tier 1
? The premier decks of the format. These are the most likely decks to win challenges or preliminaries on Magic Online and often survive even while being targeted directly by other top decks.

Tier 2
? These are very strong decks that are poised to top 8 the challenges and may even win them, but generally have a specific weak matchup either against other A tier decks or against some number of S tier decks, which hold these decks back from the top spot.

see full list
Tier 3
? These are the last of the decks that are likely to put up strong results in the Challenges Online. These decks tend to have skewed matchup spreads, needing to win the matchup lottery to overperform and usually are more like to top 16 a Challenge than top 8.

see full list
Tier 4
? These are decks that can 5-0 a league and will occasionally spike a larger event, but generally they fall victim to too many bad matchups in the upper tiers of the metagame or lack the consistency outside of a single pilot to put up consistent results.

see full list
Tier 5
? These decks show up often enough to warrant mention outside of FNM tier and can sneak into top 16s some amount of the time, but on a week to week basis, these decks are liable to leave you outside of prizes in competitive events.
