LoR Meta Snapshot #49

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

Every Monday, 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.

The post-Worlds environment has led to a new predator entering the fray in the top tier: Ziggs-Poppy. We now have a bit of a rock-paper-scissors affair in Tier 1, with Ziggs-Poppy there as a counter to Zoe-Nami and Zoe-Nami there as a counter to Draven-Sion.

In the most recent EU Masters games, we could see a returning archetype - Thralls. They’ve adapted, hoping that a greater flexibility allows them greater longevity in the meta this time around. With one returner comes one that Ultraman advises you to relinquish - Caitlyn-Draven seems to have run its course.

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