By the Numbers – Current Best LoR Decks

Best decks in Runeterra, according to the latest data!
Samira Level 2 lor

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


Best Decks for LoR Standard

As of Thursday, these are the 7 most popular LoR decks according to Legna the Mastering Runeterra Meta Tier List:

Sources: MaRu's data (which samples Plat+ players) and Legna's data (which samples High Diamond & Masters players) – both sources in turn get their data directly from Riot (via Riot's API).


This patch cycle will probably finish as it started: with Samira Fizz as one of the most popular archetypes, and also one of the strongest – while not the broken deck it seemed to be in the first couple of post-patch days, and briefly dislodge from the top during the second week by an onslaught of Demacian decks, Samira Fizz has managed to claw back to the top of both the popularity and performance charts.

And in the Plat+ data now looks clear that, as top pilots noted early on, SamiraSamira is herself a tad overtuned, as we'll see in the number of strong decks she features.

For those new to (or not too much in the loop of) Legends of Runeterra: next week, on Wednesday, we'll have the next Balance Patch – while we won't know the exact changes for certain until we see the patch notes (usually the day before), these patches tend to shake the LoR meta quite a bit. If you're low on shards and wildcards, you may want to wait until after the patch to craft a new deck: it's impossible to say for certain how the LoR ladder will look like two weeks from now.

Above all since it's a fair bet that either Samira and/or her package will get a slap in the wrist.

Having said that…

… let's see which are the current strongest decks in this last leg of the patch! =)


LoR Meta FAQs

Where does this data come from?

Directly from Riot (via Riot's API) – Liver, our wonderful coder and unsung MaRu 🐐 (also in charge of designing the website) makes the data automagically appear in our meta tier list and meta stats page, and all-around LoR 🐐 Legna shares his data (from the same source, although following a different set of players) with us too.

Which is the best LoR deck?

Short answer: Depends on how you define "best", of course! =)

Much longer answer: Check the Technical Note at the end of this article, above all about the differences between "archetypes" and "decks" in Legends of Runeterra's data.

Practical answer: As of today, Samira Leona, Ashe LeBlanc, and Samira Fizz, probably in that order.

Which is the highest win rate deck in LoR?

Among all decks showcased today: Leona Samira – Samira Fizz is indeed the most popular archetype, but when you look at specific decks, Leona Samira is better.

Among decks with more than 2,100 games played in the last three days: Yet again, Leona Samira – it's, as of today, and with the meta still up in the air, the best tool for the climbing job.

How do I beat…

How do I beat Samira Fizz? Samira Leona has a slight edge here, and as noted above is probably the best ladder deck overall. Annie Caitlyn is even better if you specifically want to beat Sam Fizz, but is a weaker deck overall than either Samira version.

How do I beat Leona Samira? Ashe LeBlanc: great deck overall, and an edge against Leona Samira. Or Heimer Jayce, which is on fire right now, and absolutely murders the Solar Flair pair. 

How do I beat Ashe LeBlanc? Heimerdinger Jayce!


Juggernauts – Best Legends of Runeterra Decks

Samira Level 1 lor

Here we showcase LoR decks with more than 300 games in the last three days, and good-to-great win rate – the best tried-and-true tools the LoR meta has to offer!


Ashe LeBlanc

As we've noted a gazillion times in these articles (but, shesh, folks just don't listen!) Ashe LeBlancs most popular version (with Avarosan TrapperAvarosan Trapper and Revna, the LorekeeperRevna, the Lorekeeper) is pretty good, but not as good as the second most popular, which is clearly the best:

Beats me why pilots are so adamant to stick with the Trapper version but well, Yetis are Yetis I guess! =)

Until now, the Ice Queen and the Black Rose had a single weak spot, namely Annie Caitlyn – this week, though, Heimer Jayce has surged both in popularity and performance, as we'll see a bit further down, and it's very good at punishing Ashe LeBlanc.

On the other hand, Rose and Queen have an edge on Leona Samira, and very good odds against most Demacian decks, like Gwen Quinn or Illaoi Jarvan.

Leona Samira

When looking at Plat+ data, Leona Samira is undisputedly the best deck in the Runeterra ladder, a title it has held consistently for over two weeks now, and that in the last three days has been smacking above 57% (the highest we'll see today) in more than 5,500 games – also a list we can consider solved, given the lack of changes we've seen:

Leona Samira's matchup spread is excellent: the Solar Flair ladies do have a problem with the ascending Heimer Jayce, but other decks that beat them tend to be either not very good, or very fringe options (like Gnar Norra in this category); and the matchups they dominate, like against Karma Sett, Lurkers or Gwenn Quinn, they do so by massive margins.

As usual, Leona Samira is Karma Sett's worst nightmare – the good news for the Runeterra Mint is that Heimer Jayce, that as we've seen above is very good against Leona Samira and Ashe LeBlanc, is very, very weak against Karma Sett – there probably won't be enough time for this trend to fully develop before the Balance Patch arrives, but Heimer Jayce is indeed shaking things up among the Juggernauts.

Fizz Samira

And here we are, back where we started! =)

Although it ended up being just an amazing deck (as opposed to truly broken…), Samira Fizz will end this patch at the top of the charts, with the best Samira Fizz deck punching at 55% in around 3,500 games, and the archetype overall being the most popular in Runeterra:

Samira Fizz murders Deep and has an edge on Lurkers, clearly showing who rules the Runeterran waves, and currently doesn't have any popular weak spots: Leona Samira and Illaoi Jarvan are a bit rough, but no worse than 45% odds.

… packing a 53%+ punch across 2,800 games.

The detail to pay attention to here is that Deep's good performance in spite of its awful odds against Samira Fizz – depending on how hard Samira decks get hit by the nerf hammer next week, Deep may end up very favored against the ensuing field.

Illaoi Jarvan

Superbly showcasing Demacia's grit and tenacity, Prince and Priestess push upwards and become the only new Juggernaut this week, and with a 54% win rate across 2800 games become the undisputably best DEDemacia deck out there – eat your heart out, Garen!

Priestess and Prince are horrible against Ashe LeBlanc, not too happy to bump into Heimer Jayce, and a bit of the undertentacles against Leona Samira – on the backswing, they have an edge against Leona Fizz and Gwen Quinn, very good odds against Karma Sett and Deep, and slap Jack Seraphine silly.

Gwen Quinn

The opulent ladies have remained a solid choice for your ladder climb – not the powerhouse they were early on, but very worthy of consideration: nearly 53% win rate in 2,400+ games, a performance that has been consistently solid throught all this patch.

Heavyweights – Strong LoR Meta Decks

These Legends of Runeterra decks have between 900 and 3000 games in the last three days – solid picks for climbing the LoR ladder!


⭐Rising Star – Heimerdinger Jayce

And here they are, the man and yordle of the hour!

It took Professor and Student quite a while, but it looks like they've cracked this theorem, and in the last few days went from mediocre option to meta shakers: excellent performance (56% in about 1,000 games with their best deck) and excellent odds against two of the biggest Juggernauts: Ashe LeBlanc, and Leona Samira.

What's still keeping them at bay is Karma Sett, which remains an awful matchup. Samira Fizz, on the other hand, is 50/50.


⭐Rising Star – Samira Varus, sometimes ft. Riven

Ekko Jinx

(By the way: Ahri Kennen is also very popular, but results remain thus far disappointing)

Seraphine's Bar beats Ashe LeBlanc, and appears to have great odds versus Heimer Jayce.

Battle Fury

Although Battle Fury decks don't always perform when not piloted by Master Rex himself, in this case the numbers are scarily good: amazing 56% win rate across 1,200 games, so if you're looking for big, mean and powerful, this is probably it!


Pyke Rek'Sai, aka Lurkers

Fiercely battling Deep for the "Old Deck that Rotation Made a Thing" title, Lurkers' popularity may be a bit on the fringe side, but their performance is still rock-solid.

And, like Deep, may end up being one of the winners of next week's round of balancing: their matchups against Samira Leona is as close to "auto-lose" as you can get in Runeterra, so if Samira gets nerfed, Lurkers may be very happy.


Annie Caitlyn

Sheriff and blazing brat have stabilized their win rate at around 52-53% –  they get brutally wrecked by Karma Sett and Deep, but are one of the best Ashe LeBlanc counters.

Punching Up – Runeterra Decks Doing Great

Runeterra decks with between 500 and 900 games in the last three days – we're sailing into small data samples, yet all decks here have quite a few games under their belts.


Diana Leona, aka Celesbian

Another old pairing that found its footing last Saturday – not as potent today (it was punching above 55% then, and only at 53% now) but that shows Leona's package is not only good with Samira.

Gnar Norra

Despite its terrific performance for nearly two weeks now, pilots have been remiss to picking up this brew – don't sleep on this one, folks, above all if PirouettePirouette manages to dodge the incoming round of nerfs!
