Tier 0: It would be criminal to ever consider soul trapping this card.
Tier 1: Absolutely solid card, a definite keep.
Tier 2: Not bad cards, they measure up to the tier ones and zeroes in power level, but just currently don’t have a place in a deck or see limited play. Soul trap at your own risk.
Tier 3: Possibly playable in some alternate reality, however, you can soul trap them fairly confidently. Fringe playable.
Tier 4: What is this card even doing in your collection?
Note that this soul trapping guide is meant to aid a competitive player’s collection building, and has no bearing if you want to make meme decks or experiment with archetypes that are still unexplored. I might add my justification for specific cards’ tiers at some point, but its time-consuming and would delay the list’s publishing too much for my liking.
Note that I’m lean on the harsher side of evaluating cards, as I feel that getting rid of bad cards (even the ones that maybe, someday will see play) would be the most beneficial to a new player who wants to build an established deck sooner rather than later.
Cards marked with a ‘^’ are tentative, given they recently got changed in a patch.
