Post-Patch Forerunners – Best LoR Decks, 24hs After Patch 4.10

With roughly 24hs of data since LoR patch 4.10 landed, these are the best decks for the Legends of Runeterra ladder.

Legends of Runeterra Patch 4.10 landed roughly a day ago, along with plenty of nerfs, buffs, and a quite the facelift to how the post-match lobby looks like. You can even import, craft, and jump again into the fray with your opponent's deck, as long as you have the resources for it!

And, as pilots and brewers adjust to this brave new Runeterra meta, these are the decks that have taken the early lead on the LoR ladder.



Jack Sett

What do you know! These two burly boys seem to have finally learned to get along!

One of the most popular specific decklist as of now, with more than 1000 games played since the patch landed, JackJack SettSett is packing one heck of a big punch or two. Hard to know this early on if the buffs to NukkleNukkle's crew is what has made the trick, but thus far the numbers look very, very good.

Teemo Janna

Wind Lady and Puffcapy Scout were already onto something by the end of last patch, with an excellent performance albeit a fringe play rate.

The current turbulent tides are proving amazing for them thus far: with about 600 games played, they have the highest win rate from among all decks showcased today, smacking above a 60% WR.

Pyke Rek'Sai, aka Lurkers

Pyke doesn't seem to have read the memo…

I mean, Death wasn't able to stop him, and at least thus far it looks like making him cost one more mana hasn't been of a speedbump, even.

Gwen Vayne

It's a bit surprising to see one of the heavy-hitters from last patch losing steam when it didn't receive any nerfs, but it's too soon to drive conclusions just yet. At any rate, GwenGwen VayneVayne remains very popular and with a solid 53% win rate – just not as good, for now, as it was just a couple of days ago.

Janna Seraphine

For pilots that are not too fond of putting things on the board, or that happent to love Singleton formats, JannaJanna SeraphineSeraphine still looks like a solid deck to play. It wasn't an amazing option last patch, mind you, and thus far it's performance is just okay, but certainly playable.

Galio Volibear

Striking with renewed vigor, GalioGalio VolibearVolibear appears very happy with the recent round of buffs and nerfs, even when Balen the BenevolentBalen the Benevolent was one of the nerfbat's victims.

Last patch, Galio Volibear had started as the deck to beat, to later fall into a popular yet middling deck – with close to 300 games played this patch and win rate north of an excellent 57%, the current LoR meta seems in its favor thus far.

Janna Nilah

Already one of the best decks during the last patch cycle, JannaJanna NilahNilah has stolen one of EkkoEkko's tricks, adding Called ShotCalled Shot to their card-draw mix.

There are tons of version of this archetype (some of them sticking to their pre-patch formula and also doing very well), so it looks like these two champs will again be top contenders.

Wrapping Up

Onward has been one of the most varied expansions that LoR has seen in quite some time, and in Patch 4.10's case, initial numbers suggest that the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree.We'll see tomorrow in By the Numbers how things shape up once pilots and brewers have a bit more time to play around and find out!
