This page contains player decks designed for manual battles within the Lernaean Hydra Raid.

Player Deck Tiers

The following cards are not permitted to be included within decks due to their inaccessibility:

  • Any card which is no longer available, or is restricted to players from a particular location (such as T-46 Leonidas, also identified by being part of the Exclusive set in cards.xml).
  • Crafted cards.
  • Faction reward cards from player faction levels eleven or above.
  • Player Level Reward cards from levels 76 or above.
  • Any Promotional card which costs more than 25War Bonds.
  • Raid Reward cards used in decks for the same Raid from which said cards are acquired.

Decks must conform to one of five tiers (with two Dracorex sub tiers):

Tier 1
A deck belongs to Tier 1 if it contains:
  • A legendary card from a Nexus, Blight, Purity, Phobos or Phobos Aftermath pack.
  • Common cards from Nexus, Blight, Purity, Phobos or Phobos Aftermath packs where the quantity used in the deck exceeds the number which can be acquired as rewards.
Tier 1 Dracorex
A deck belongs to Tier 1 Dracorex if it is a Tier 1 deck which contains Dracorex. This is to compensate for the high number of decks which use Dracorex.
Tier 2
A deck belongs to Tier 2 if it contains the following cards:
  • Rare or uncommon cards from Nexus, Blight, Purity, Phobos or Phobos Aftermath packs where the quantity used in the deck exceeds the number which can be acquired as rewards.
  • Promotional cards which are still available for purchase by any player at a cost of no more than 25 war bonds.
Tier 2 Dracorex
A deck belongs to Tier 2 Dracorex if it is a Tier 2, 3, 4 or 5 deck which contains Dracorex. This is to compensate for the high number of decks which use Dracorex. Dracorex itself is a Tier 2 card by this definition, so this is why the Tier n Dracorex sub-tiers end at this point.
Tier 3
A deck belongs to Tier 3 if it contains:
  • Raid reward cards (not from the same raid, as stated above).
  • Reward cards obtained from tournament ranking achievements.
  • Faction reward cards from player faction levels 1-10.
  • Player level reward cards from player levels 1-75.
Tier 4
A deck belongs to Tier 4 if it contains:
  • Cards from Homeworld packs where the quantity used in the deck exceeds the number which can be acquired as rewards.
  • Cards obtained from tournament rankings.
Tier 5
A deck belongs to Tier 5 if it contains no cards which belong to any other tier.

Decks must use {{PlayerDeck}}, be tested using Evaluate Decks and have their results documented using {{EvalDecks}} according to the template rules.

The highest tiered card in a deck provides the tier to which the deck will belong and will be labelled as such using the name parameter in {{PlayerDeck}}, per the following convention:

  • Anti-RaidName: Auto Tier n or Manual Tier n
Examples
Anti-Imperial Purger: Auto Tier 1 Dracorex
Anti-Xeno Walker: Manual Tier 3

Win Rate Restrictions

It is important to recognize the diverse player base and allow decks from Tiers 1 through 5 to be published. The limit per tier is ten decks: One deck using {{PlayerDeck}} and up to nine within the accompanying {{EvalDecks}}, since the templated deck needs ED to have its win rate posted. This creates a maximum of five instances of {{PlayerDeck}} and {{EvalDecks}} on each of the raid Auto and Manual subpages of Tyrant/Raids/RaidName/Player Decks.

If a tier has ten decks, the only way to replace one of the decks within the tier is with a deck that has a higher win rate using Evaluate Decks and fits the requirements of the tier.

Since there are only five instances of {{PlayerDeck}} and they are given the name of the tier (not the name of the deck as per the Author), the template takes on a much different role than in other parts of the Wiki; it is simply a placeholder for the deck in that tier with the highest win rate. The PlayerDeck instance is no longer the definition of the theme, the tier is the definition of the theme.

Test results must be ordered by win rate, descending, with the highest win rate for that tier using the {{PlayerDeck}} template.

Careful attention must be paid not to lose the author of a deck when moving it from PlayerDeck to an EvalDecks row, it must be included as documented in Template:EvalDecks/doc.

This standard is an effort to make it easier for readers to find decks for the tiers that apply to them, with the ones having the highest win rate always having the most visible position.

This standard helps to ensure that decks from all tiers have a place and also helps to keep raid articles from expanding without limit, making them harder to read and even harder to maintain.
