Tier Explanation

To create this Meta Tier list, I used data from tournaments, online ranked play, and my expertise and opinions of respected players. This tier list will hold meta-staple decks that you'll likely encounter in tournament play and will be updated as the meta changes up.

The decklists shared here have found success in tournament events but can be tweaked depending on meta shifts or players' own preferences.

Tier 1: The top performers and most represented decks in the meta. They have good matchups in the current meta and can adapt to different game scenarios. Expect to encounter these decks frequently in tournaments, with players strategizing specifically to counter them.

Tier 2: Popular Meta decks that have solid matchup tables. Tier 2 decks can rival Tier 1 decks in performance, but may have weaknesses and less representation, holding them back from joining Tier 1.

Tier 3: Comprising less popular decks or those experiencing a decline in performance, Tier 3 includes options that may still yield respectable results in tournaments. However, they often struggle against certain prevalent matchups. Additionally, this tier encompasses decks with limited data, making it challenging to accurately assess their placement in higher tiers.

Tier 4: The less popular off-meta decks or have fallen out of the meta. They might still show up in tournament top cuts but are less likely to perform against the top meta decks.

Blue Black Sakazuki

Strong Against: Yellow Enel, Blue Purple Vinsmoke Reiji, Green Uta, Yellow Katakuri.

Weak Against: Red Purple Law, Red Newgate.

Sakazuki remains a dominant force in the OP06 Meta, excelling at maintaining control over the board. Its cost-reduction ability pairs well with cards like Rob Lucci, Hound Blaze, Ama no Murakumo, and Borsalino, allowing you to deal with opponents' Characters.

The inclusion of 8 Gecko Moria has significantly bolstered the archetype's late-game potential, enabling impactful plays, particularly with Rob Lucci, and setting up a wide board of attackers for the upcoming turn. The list has access to value cards like Brannew, Sabo, Rebecca, and Gecko Moria, ensuring you don't run out of value throughout the game.

Sakazuki is a popular choice in both tournaments and ranked SIM, solidifying its position as one of the premier decks in the current meta.

Black Gecko Moria

Strong Against: Red Purple Law, Yellow Enel, Blue Purple Vinsmoke Reiju.

Weak Against: Black Yellow Monkey.D.Luffy.

In the OP06 meta, Black Gecko Moria has been achieving notable success by balancing board development and control strategies. It utilizes cost-reduction cards to enable powerful plays with Rob Lucci and Absalom.

This is a difficult deck to pilot as it relies on cards from your trash, getting them back on the board or in your hand through Gecko Moria's leader effect, Doctor Hogback, and 8 Gecko Moria. Capitalizing on Gecko Moria's board development effect, you're able to establish a formidable board presence, launching a barrage of attacks that force opponents to expend their resources.

Black Gecko Moria has a great matchup table against most of the popular meta decks you'll go up against.

Trafalgar Law

Strong Against: Yellow Katakuri, Blue Black Sakazuki, Blue Purple Vinsmoke Reiju.

Weak Against: Black Gecko Moria, Red Edward Newgate.

Red Purple Law is an aggressive deck that puts a lot of early to mid-game pressure on the opponent. The Leader can sacrifice Dons to place opponent's characters at the bottom of their deck, while at the same time developing an extra body on the board.

The ability to drop two characters per turn, combined with Rush attackers makes it difficult for most decks to keep up with and will end up losing to Law's aggression.

Monkey.D.Luffy

If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

Strong Against: Red Edward Newgate, Blue Purple Vinsmoke Reiju, Black Gecko Moria.

Weak Against: Blue Black Sakazuki, Red Purple Law, Yellow Enel.

Black/Yellow Luffy adopts a unique playstyle, relying on Life Cards to execute its strategies. This deck wants to drop to 0 Life Cards and then use its leader's effect to put the adult three brothers face-up into the Life Area. This lets you activate the kid three brothers' abilities (Sabo, Portgas.D.Ace, and Monkey.D.Luffy) allowing you to play those face-up cards on the board.

Gaining a +2000 Power on your leader until the end of the opponent's turn makes it challenging for them to close out the game, prolonging matches and setting the stage for devastating, potentially game-ending attacks.

Since you have access to Black color, Gecko Moria is included in the deck for the late game value. Gecko Moria can play two of the kid brothers on the board, letting you play the two face-up cards in your Life Area and gain +4000 Power on the Leader.

Charlotte Katakuri

If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

Strong Against: Yellow Enel, Blue Purple Vinsmoke Reiju, Black Yellow Monkey.D.Luffy.

Weak Against: Blue Black Sakazuki, Red Purple Law, Green Uta.

Renowned for its trigger effects, Yellow Katakuri stands out as one of the top contenders in the meta. The leader's ability provides invaluable card knowledge and the flexibility to manipulate the top card in your Life Area, creating pressure through trigger board development.

Mid-game pressure is pivotal for Katakuri, leveraging the +1000 ability to inflict damage to opposing Leaders while transitioning into late-game plays centered around Big Mom. The inclusion of 10 Charlotte Linlin not only grants an additional life card but also threatens opponents' Life cards, placing them at risk of losing to your attacks.

The late-game strength of 7 and 10 Charlotte Linlin is crucial, enabling you to outvalue opponents and eventually go through their blockers for that last one-hit wincon.

Enel

Strong Against: Green Uta, Red Edward Newgate, Green Yellow Yamato.

Weak Against: Blue Black Sakazuki, Yellow Katakuri, Blue Purple Vinsmoke Reiju.

Enel is making a comeback with the release of EB01. This deck wants to prolong the game by putting more cards in their Life Area through the Leader effect, Katakuri, and Yamato, making it difficult for opponents to set up the winning turn. Some versions are running ST13-011-portgasdace over OP05-100-enel as an early Rush attacker.

In most cases, the Enel player will avoid attacking the opponent's Leader in an attempt to get more out of their removal cards Gedatsu and Yamato. This makes it difficult to establish a threatening board and will end up deprived of resources as Enel builds up its high-cost threats.

The deck has been on the rise again, slowly reclaiming its spot as one of the best decks in the One Piece card game.

Green Yellow Yamato

Yamato can be quite bothersome with the Double Attack ability, forcing Counter resources out of the opponent. Onami's Banish synergizes with Yamato's Double Attack, threatening to Trash two Life cards if the opponent doesn't commit Counter cards.

Hody Jones comes in handy to rest the opponent's blockers, creating opportunities to target their Leader and potentially clinch the game.

There are currently two competitive lists for Yamato, the Sky Wano Hybrid and Fortress lists, both performing well and have different playstyles.

Sky Wano Hybrid:

Strong Against: Blue Black Sakazuki.

Weak Against: Yellow Enel, Red Purple LAw, Red Edward Newgate.

This version takes advantage of Sky Island and Land of the Wano characters as part of its game plan. It can be quite aggressive on the board with a couple of Trigger cards to enable you to develop Characters like Satori, Charlotte Cracker, and Kikunojo without using any Don!!!.

Fortress:

Loading...
If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

The Fortress version plays around Eustass"Captain"Kid setup. You want to have him on the board, along with a couple of blockers to set up your Fortress, making it difficult for the opponent to reach your Leader. Donquixote Doflamingo joins the battle in the late game, offering a reliable defensive ability and shutting down the opponent's aggression on the upcoming turn.

Wano list:

Red Edward Newgate

If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

The aggressive Edward Newgate deck claws it's way back into the competitive scene in OP06 meta. The deck fell off at early OP06 release as players were picking up the more popular choices, but with its recent success in one of the regional tournaments, managing to claim first place, players have been picking up the deck. So far it's performing well in regional tournaments and holding a positive win rate.

This aggressive deck wants to unleash a barrage of attacks with its low-cost character. Leader Edward Newgate being at 6,000 Power can be daunting for most Characters to go through and will force out Don!!! out of the opponent. The list includes a couple of Rush characters to keep the pressure going in mid-game.

Vinsmoke Reiju

Loading...
If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

Strong Against: Yellow Enel.

Weak Against: Blue Black Sakazuki, Red Purple Law, Black Gecko Moria.

The Reiju Germa 66 version has seen the most success in OP06 meta. This variant leverages Germa 66 cards such as Ichiji, Niji, Yonji, and Reiju to summon their higher-cost versions from either hand or Trash. This playstyle necessitates the return of Don!! cards to facilitate such plays, resulting in fewer Don!! cards compared to opponents.

However, Returning a Don!! card to the deck activates the leader's effect, providing additional card draw value. Keep in mind, the higher-cost versions of Germa 66 Characters have unique effects when the player has equal or less Don!! cards than their opponent.

With the rise of Red Purple Law, Reiju has been struggling to keep up in the current meta and has fallen in popularity.

Perona

Loading...
If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

Although not as prevalent as Gecko Moria and Sakazuki decks, Perona has found success in tournament settings. The archetype uses Perona's ability to set up removal plays with cards like X.Drake and Ryuma and asserts control over the board.

With access to black, players are including Gecko Moria for that crucial value it provides, setting up a powerful board development while also threatening to K.O. a character with Ryuma.

Green Uta

Loading...
If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

Uta focuses on flooding the board with multiple units utilizing the effect of cards like Brook and Monkey. D. Luffy. This shifts the momentum in your favor, paving the way for devastating attacks.

Eustass "Captain"Kid paired with Blockers can be a nightmare for many meta decks, making it extremely difficult for them to go through and strike Uta.

"I'm Invincible" enables the setup of multiple leader-driven attacks, utilizing Uta as a heavy hitter to secure victory.

Red Green Kozuki Oden

Loading...
If you see this for too long, please disable AdBlock and try to reload the page...

The Red Green Kozuki Oden takes advantage of the {Land of Wano} Characters to boost the Leader's Power. This helps you offensively and defensively, forcing more resources from the opponent.

The list runs high-power Land of Wano characters to put the mid-game pressure before you transition to your carry Characters like 8-cost Kozuki Oden and 9-cost Edward Newgate.
