LoR Meta Snapshot #22

Welcome to TLG’s newest meta snapshot for Legends of Runeterra, a series in which we give you our insight on the best decks in the higher ranks of the ladder.

Every Sunday, we discuss the decks that are part of the week’s meta and rate them on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. We also look at the evolution of said decks’ ratings across weeks and draw conclusions regarding the current state of the game, all of this so you can delve into your own ranked journey with a head start.

This week, two big things happened: we received nerfs to Make it Rain and Lee Sin, and we were gifted 6 new KDA cards. Taken together, they have had a very good impact on the game so far. The meta feels fun again and actually does appear to be more diverse. There are plenty of Warmother decks running around, but at least they aren’t as oppressive as Lee Sin.

We have 6 bonus decks featured in this week’s snapshot, 2 of which feature the new KDA cards. A lot of testing still needs to be done for these new KDA decks, but they have the potential to be competitive. Don’t discount them just because we put them in the bonus section.

One last thing to note is that meta stalwarts like Swain-TF and GP-MF are exiting the stage. Together with the upcoming patch that promises to buff underplayed champions, things are looking great for Legends of Runeterra.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop by our Discord. Best of luck on your climb!
