Gravekeeper decks were arguably Tier 1 back in 04 and 05, too, if you could play them well. One of my friends had a fairly decent gravekeeper deck, the monsters all worked really well together. Of course, Gravekeepers were the first "themed" cards... that started a horrible trend.

I didn't realize so many meta cards apparently took advantage of the graveyard more recently How predictable. Good for Necrovalley.
