The Last Runeterra Open Report - Top 4 Decks and Lineups

Yangzera shows the top 4 decks and lineups brought to the day 2 of all three Runeterra Opens

Hey all! It’s your boy Yangzera here and after a pretty wild weekend I’m back to share a report with the top 4 lineups from each shard! It was an action-packed day with a lot of great games, great matches and we got to know more worlds qualified players!

Stay tuned in for a follow up article about how we can use what we learned from the Eternal meta and adapt it into standard for this weekend’s LCQ!

APAC

APAC probably set up the pace of the day 2 opens for the other regions, with Jax Ornn being present in 3 out of the top 4 lineups. Minor yet still potent players in Aphelios PZ also showed up in a big way on the tournament.

EMEA

Following up on the success of APAC, Jax Ornn was present in all top 4 lineups on EMEA. Kuvira followed on Aurora and also brought Targon Piltover Aphelios for the win, with a less cheesy and more consistent version of PZ/NX aggro that features Rumble over Vi and looks to punish decks that can't really deal with this type of aggression.
