DC Epic Duels Tier List

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.

Doomsday

Darkseid

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.

Brainiac

Superman

Martian Manhunter

Shazam

Black Adam

The Flash (Barry Allen)

Wonder Woman

Bizarro

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.

Aquaman

Cheetah

Ares

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)

Swamp Thing

Etrigan the Demon

Saint Walker

Hawkman

Professor Zoom

Sinestro

Atrocitus

Green Lantern (John Stewart)

Green Lantern (Guy Gardner)

Lobo

Solomon Grundy

Killer Croc

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.

Black Manta

Hawkgirl

Batman

The Flash (Wally West)

Mera

Superboy

Cyborg

Supergirl

Larfleeze

Beast Boy

Blue Beetle

Bane

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.

Damian Wayne

Deathstroke

Starfire

Killer Frost

Ra’s al Ghul

Despero

Mr. Freeze

Ocean Master

A- Tier: These decks have some clear flaws but have great potential to dominate a game under the right circumstances.

Harley Quinn

Gorilla Grodd

Terra

Black Hand

Star Sapphire

Deadshot

Kid Flash

Captain Cold

Doctor Fate

Donna Troy

Lex Luthor

Zatanna

Raven

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.

John Constantine

Poison Ivy

Red Hood

Green Arrow

Nightwing

Batwoman

Robin

Huntress

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.

The Joker

Indigo-1

Black Canary

Captain Boomerang

Scarecrow

Heat Wave

The Question

Mirror Master

Weather Wizard

Arsenal

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.

The Penguin

The Riddler

Two-Face

  1. Just a heads-up, but Batgirl, Batwoman, and Two Face are missing from this list, which is a shame because I actually prefer seeing all the decks listed in one place as opposed to how you have them separated by expansions, but I guess that’s a minor gripe.
