While hardly an exact science, this is a guide to the general power levels of each deck so you know roughly how even a match is. While some versions of Epic Duels strive for equality among decks, I’m not the kind of person who wants to see Superman have a roughly even match with Green Arrow. That just doesn’t make sense.
Obviously, looking at this list you’re going to find a lot of S Tier and A Tier characters, as this is where the most popular characters tend to reside. Don’t be disheartened by your favorite characters being in a lower tier though: they often have some of the most interesting gameplay of anyone in the set. It’s just that Sluggos (TM Geektopia) have the hit points and attack power to decimate them.
S+ Tier: These decks are extremely powerful and should be used more to provide a challenge for players than to be used in a standard game. S Tier characters can definitely stand a chance, but even they are at a disadvantage.
S Tier: These are the heavy hitters, powerful decks with lots of hit points, damage output, and few weaknesses to speak of. It’s recommended that you stick with A Tier and above characters or you’re going to have a lopsided match.
S- Tier: These decks have the potential to be as good as S-Tier decks but can be held back by elements that are easy to predict or that cause some strain on their resources.
A+ Tier: These characters often excel in one particular area enough that they can compete with S Tier characters comfortably, but aren’t so overpowered that lower tiers can’t take them on.
A Tier: These characters have a good chunk of damage output that make them dangerous, or at least enough health to hold their own, but they will struggle against S tiers most of the time.
A- Tier: These decks have some clear flaws but have great potential to dominate a game under the right circumstances.
B+ Tier: These characters need to stay far away from S Tier characters if they hope to have any chance of winning, most of the time. They can have epic games, but they are inconsistent at best.
B Tier: This is about the lowest tier that can even think of being competitive with A Tier characters. They have some tricks up their sleeve to stay in the game but are better suited for lower tier play.
B- Tier: The weakest of the weak, these decks rely a bit too much on luck to stand any sort of fighting chance against even low A Tiers. They lack enough dependable power or stamina to belong in the game with S tiers.
