Metagame
メタゲーム (Metagēmu)
Japanese Wiki: 1166

Metagame refers to the decks or strategies used in the current competitive environment.

Details

When a player talk about the metagame (also known as the 'meta'), they are referring to the decks and strategies that are the most dominant in their local area and tournament events.

Typically, as metagame decks become more common in the tournaments, Anti-Meta decktypes or specific cards also begin to arise in order to counter them. Anti-Meta Decks aren't generally very versatile, as while they may be strong against one specific type of meta deck, they may also be much weaker against another type of meta deck.

Please note that depending on situation, fun decks or non-meta decks can defeat even the strongest of meta decks. This usually happens when the meta deck is handled by an inexperienced player, but can also be due to shuffles or bad luck (Such as not getting key cards early or running into multiple cards with the "Shield Trigger" keyword).
