By the Numbers, Dec 21 – Current Best LoR Decks

The best decks in Legends of Runeterra, according to the latest data!

Note: This is an older article.
For the most recent data, check the latest LoR Best Decks article, or our Meta Tier List!


Howdy, and welcome to our weekly selection of the best decks in the Legends of Runeterra meta!

As explained in the Technical Note at the end of this article, we'll first take a glance at a snapshot of our LoR Meta Decks Tier List, which sorts archetypes (that's to say, the aggregate of all decks with the exact same Champions) by popularity, and then we'll dive into the data to check how individual decks perform, to showcase the best LoR decks.


Best LoR Decks for the Standard Ladder

These are the most popular Standard LoR archetypes according to the Mastering Runeterra Meta Tier List – notice that "popular" and "strong" don't quite overlap this early on, though!

LoR Best Decks: Legends of Runeterra Meta Tier List, sorted by play rate

Sources: MaRu's data (which samples Plat+ players)


With Worlds 2023 behind us, the LoR ladder meta is this week pretty stable: Darius Gnar has made an entrance among the best decks in Runeterra, and (words that I know I'm not the only one typing) Shyvana, of all champs, has shown she has what it takes to claw a place at the top.

Elder DragonElder Dragon is clearly on the same tier as VayneVayne or BardBard at their heydays: just slap the grumpy ol' lizard with another champ and you've got a working deck. But it must be said that the LoR Devs have pulled an interesting feat two expansions in a row now: all new champs have at least one popular, potent deck…

… and as we'll see in a bit, they all have at least one other option you can climb with.


Juggernauts – Best Legends of Runeterra Decks for the Standard Ladder

Decks in this category have at least 2400 games played in the last three days, and good to great win rates – as far as current numbers go, these are the best LoR decks in the Standard ladder.


Elder Dragon Norra

One of the decks that was seen the most during Worlds 2023, Elder DragonElder Dragon NorraNorra climbs this week to the top of the popularity charts when specific decklists are considered:

With 5200+ games played in the last three days and punching close to 57% when it comes to win rates, Elder Norra is unarguably one of the best LoR decks.

The list seems pretty solved at this point. GnarGnar has exited this conversation, by the way (the prehistoric Yordle used to be part of this brew last week); some versions are experimenting with tweaks to the Follower mix, including for example one copy of The Zaun DivaThe Zaun Diva, but without promising results as of yet.

Elder Norra seems to suffer when facing other Elder decks (like Elder Volibear, Elder Garen, and above all Elder Shyvana) and is a massive underdog to Darius Gnar – on the backswing, it's favored versus Mordekaiser Morgana and Riven Morgana, slaps Gwen Zed silly, and has a small edge on Karma Sett, which is gaining popularity.


Elder Dragon Shyvana

Yyyyep, it's a fact: ShyvanaShyvana has a top-performing, Juggernaut-level deck!

All courtesy of good ol' Elder DragonElder Dragon, but still: Elder DragonElder Dragon ShyvanaShyvana is definitely one of the strongest decks in Runeterra right now, with the most popular version punching nearly at 55% across 4400 games:

Judgment

Elder Shyvana loses badly to Elder Volibear, but has the upper hand against Elder Gnar (by a little) and Elder Norra (by a huge lot).

Confrontations against popular Morgana decks (mainly Mord Morgana and Riven Morgana) are about 50/50, and both Karma Sett and Darius Gnar are a bit of an uphill struggle but still in the "can do" range.


Darius Gnar

Here's the pair that has gained the most momentum this week: with pretty much a solved build (not a single card changed since last week), DariusDarius GnarGnar smacks above the 57% winrate mark with 4300 games in the last three days.

It's excellent against Elder Norra, close to auto-win versus Elder Volibear, punches through Fizz Yuumi and has the upper hand against Elder Shivana. It's not without weak spots, though: Elder Garen is massively unfavored, and all Morgana flavors tend to be a headache.

Frozen Karma Sett

The LoR Mint has found its footing with FRFreljord (it was not doing much last week) and has surged in popularity, along with a very solid 53% win rate.

(Do note that there's also a version pairing these Ionian champs with PZPiltover & Zaun – that one is, at least thus far, pretty bad.)

It has changed a lot since the last time it made a dent in the Runeterra meta: it's now one of the most spell-heavy, top-heavy decks out there, and even packs one copy of the recently hotfixed Heisho, Shell of the WorldHeisho, Shell of the World.

Its matchup spread is very solid: Darius Gnar and Morgana Riven are quite rough, but those are Karma Sett's only glaring weak spots. Elder Gnar is unfavored but only slightly so; Elder Norra is close to 50/50; Elder Shyvana is slightly favored for Karma Sett, while Mordekaiser Morgana, Elder Volibear, and Fizz Yuumi are massively favored.

Mordekaiser Morgana

MordekaiserMordekaiser MorganaMorgana remains very popular overall (its still the most-played archetype), but individual lists are losing steam. Still very playable, but the most popular lists perform at around 52%, which is a far cry from the rest of today's Juggernauts.

On the other hand, it's very possible that the best list hasn't been found yet – there are several different versions running around.

The Ruination

Morgana Mordekaiser's main selling points is that it's excellent against Elder Garen (a deck that has very few glaring weaknesses) while also being solid against Darius Gnar, this week's hottest trend. It's also very good against Gwen Zed, which has proved very resilient.

Elder Norra, Elder Volibear, and above all the ascending Karma Sett, on the other hand, are decks you'd rather not run into.

Heavyweights – Strong LoR Decks for the Standard Ladder

These decks have between 1200 and 2400 games played in the last three days – thus far, they are among Runeterra's heavy-hitters!


Elder Dragon Garen

It's a bit surprising that Elder DragonElder Dragon GarenGaren hasn't garnered more popularity by now, given that it has consistently been one of the best performing decks since Beyond landed. And it's doing the same again, with a stellar winrate close to 58% in around 2100 games in the last three days.

Pilots find Elites' play pattern a tad tedious, perhaps?

The deck does have an awful time against Mordekaiser Morgana (which remains the deck you'll most often find on the Runeterra ladder) and is slightly the underdog to Elder Shyvana – but good odds against Elder Norra, great odds versus Darius Gnar and Elder Voli, and basically flattening every non-optimized brew out there makes Elder Garen one of the best tools to climb with.

Elder Dragon Morgana

Yeah, well, I mean, if Elder DragonElder Dragon can carry every champ out there, it can surely carry MorganaMorgana too!

And the pairing is not just purely performative; punching at 56% across 2000 games, Elder DragonElder Dragon MorganaMorgana looks like yet another grumpy ol' lizard real-deal, and may end up being the best Morgana deck out there.

It's horrible (as in, close to auto-lose horrible) when facing Karma Sett, and dies painfully versus Annie Jhin (yep, they are definitely back), but Elder Morgana has an otherwise excellent matchup spread: slight edge versus Mord Morgana, and very good odds against Elder Norra, Elder Shyvana, Darius Gnar, and Elder Garen. A great place to be against in the current Runeterra meta!

Fizz Yuumi

While the grumpy ol' lizard is razzling and dazzling everybody with its Timmy tricks, these two have quietly gained a lot of popularity: FizzFizz YuumiYuumi were last week a bit of a fringe choice, but have now jumped among the most popular.

Drop some elusive s, buff them to hell and back – an old technique, and some would say not too chivalrous, but has been working splendidly since day one of this expansion.

Annie Jhin

Stable in their playrate (they show today almost exactly the same playrate as last week: about 1200 games), AnnieAnnie JhinJhin is yet against the deck with the highest winrate among popular options, 58%+, even higher than than Elder Garen.

Blazing brat and bullet buff do all sorts of unspeakably awfull things to both Karma Sett and Elder Voli, along with turning Elder Morgana into a charred corpse. From among the strong decks, only Elder Norra and Elder Garen seem able to stop Annie Jhin in its tracks.

Standard LoR decks with between 800 and 1200 games played in the last three days – we're sailing into small data samples here, so pilots beware!


Teemo Yuumi

Gwen Zed

"If it's working then don't tweak it," say Seamstress and Shadow Master.

GwenGwen ZedZed has proven remarkably resilient, bringing to the fray the exact same build we've seen during Onward.

And when it works, it works. Gwen Zed has its fair share of bad matchups (Elder Norra in particular, but also Elder Garern, Mord Morgana, and Darius Gnar), but it's quite strong against Elder Shyvanna, demolishes Karma Sett, and terrorizes fringe brews.

KríSiS' Maokai Mordekaiser Mill

Forget about Shivana being good: the big news this week is that mill is still a thing!

And not just a thing, but a bigger, better thing (and with twice the Mordekaiser contents!): increasing both in play rate and win rate (from 53% last week to nearly 55% this week), Mord Maokai is a island of originality in a sea of grumpy ol' beatsticks.

Here's a reddit thread by KríSiS, the deck creator, with a quick explanation about this beauty!

Your Mileage May Vary

If none of the more meta decks floats your boat, here are a handful of more fringe options that are doing well on the Standard LoR ladder – sample sizes are small, though, so tread carefully!


Ashe LeBlanc

Ice Queen and Black Rose are not having the best of times, but they are certainly a deck you can take to the LoR ladder.

AsheAshe LeBlancLeBlanc is particularly good against Elder Shyvana, if that's the deck you want to counter.

Neeko Teemo

Below all this Timmyfest, with pilots hurling huge units at each other, NeekoNeeko TeemoTeemo have sneaked in by going cheap and wide, and then sprinkling a Yordles in Arms Yordles in Arms to clash with the other big butts on the board.

Performance has improved a lot since last week (from 53% to nearly 56%) – it's still a fringe brew, but if you want something different, it's been performing great for two weeks in a row now!

Elder Dragon Volibear

There are a ton of different Elder DragonElder Dragon VolibearVolibear versions, and this failure to agree on the best build may be the reason why the archetype as a whole is not doing very well – but this version, the fourth most popular, is doing quite well. If you're an Elder Voli believer, take this one for a spin!

Caitlyn Teemo

CaitlynCaitlyn TeemoTeemo is looking very, very good right now. It's a deck that always sees play (even when it shouldn't) so performance tends to be pushed upwards by extremely experienced pilots…. But its current numbers look really good right now.
