By the Numbers – Current Best LoR Decks for Eternal and Standard

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

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

As explained in detail in the Technical Note at the end of this article, we'll first take a glance at a snapshot of our Tier Lists for Eternal and Standard, which list LoR 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 decks in Runeterra.


Best LoR Decks for the Eternal Ladder

These are the 7 most popular Eternal LoR decks according to the Mastering Runeterra Meta Tier List:

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

JaxJax OrnnOrnn and SamiraSamira SeraphineSeraphine remain at the top of the Eternal LoR ladder, just like last week – and the in the girls' case, also at the top of the second Eternal Runeterra Open!

As expected from last week's stats, good ol' Pirates have clawed their way upwards, too – and, totally out of the blue, JayceJayce LuxLux leaps to the top (with also a good showing in the AM Runeterra Open Top Four),


LoR Eternal Juggernauts – Best Legends of Runeterra Decks for the Eternal Ladder

Here we showcase Eternal LoR decks with more than 2100 games in the last three days, and good-to-great win rate – the best tried-and-true tools to be found in our LoR Eternal Meta Tier List!

Notice that, with this patch's competitive events in the books, high-level pilots seem to be taking a rest, and the amount of games played in Eternal has dropped sharply this week (by nearly 30%) – as such, many decks have a lot fewer games played than last week, when checking their play rate in a three-day window.


⭐Rising Star – Jayce Lux

This is, in fact, a usual trend in Runeterra, even for the Standard ladder: with so many viable archetypes, it's common to see pilots find out that an old build still works very well.

The LoR Eternal format, by its nature, exacerbates this trend (every week there's a "new old" deck leaping forward), but Jayce Lux's case is quite noteworthy: not only has it become the most played specific decklist in the Eternal LoR ladder (with a whopping 2600 games played and a 57% win rate), it did so in a context where, as noted above, pilots have played a lot less games this week compared to the previous.

And, not content with blasting foes on the ladder, Jayce Lux also reached Top Four in last weekend's Runeterra Open!

Interestingly, Jayce Lux doesn't seem overly amazing against other Top Dogs: it's weak against Jax Ornn, loses horribly against Pirates, has a hard time against the ascending Ornn Trundle, and it's roughly even against Samira Seraphine – most of Jayce Lux's edge seems to be against weaker brews.


Jax Ornn

Still sticking to Master Brewer Scathus' build (who wrote an amazing guide for it on reddit), Jax Ornn has fallen to second most-played specific deck in the Eternal LoR ladder (displaced, as seen above, by Jayce Lux), while still punching at an amazing 57% across 2300 games.

Jayce Lux's and Pirates' ascension has been great news for Weaponmaster and Forge God, given their fairly large edge that Jax Ornn has in those matchups. Ryze's decline is also a source of joy for Jax Ornn, since that matchup is truly awful, and cherry on top, Sett Trundle (also an ugly confrontation for J-O) is not too popular despite its excellent performance.

All in all, the current field is truly favorable for Jax Ornn!

About the Rune Mage…

Like last week, Ryze remains popular but not too strong – not a deck we can recommend for the Eternal LoR ladder.


LoR Eternal Heavyweights – Strong Eternal Decks

These Eternal decks have between 1000 and 2100 games in the last three days – solid picks for climbing the Legends of Runeterra ladder!


Seraphine Samira

SeraphineSeraphine got tired of tending the Back Alley BarBack Alley Bar, and is printing Eternal LPs with the help of SamiraSamira and Plaza GuardianPlaza Guardian – not to mention, the girls just smashed things in last weekend's Runeterra Open.

Ezreal was abandoned in the process – there are some Samira Seraphine decks that include him, but it's clear by now that he's not too useful an addition.

Samira Seraphine is amazing against Ryze and Teemo Zoe, and can hold its own against Pirates – it has a bit of a hard time against Jax Ornn and Jayce Lux, and a really hard time against the ascending Ornn Trundle.

Pirates, aka Miss Fortune Twisted Fate

Don't sleep on Pirates, folks!

Once again this week (that's four in a row!) Pirates showcase one of the highest win rates in Runeterra: 60%!!

Simply put: if you want to go for a last-push climb before Nidalee starts hunting everybody down, Pirate is the Eternal deck to bring.

Pirates is another deck that is very happy with Jayce Lux becoming popular, and farms Ryze and Annie Jhin left and right – Jax Ornn is a problem, but doesn't seem to be able to slow Fortune's crew down.

Poppy Ziggs

Poppy Ziggs is, along with Pirates, the only other deck showcasing a jaw-dropping winrate north of 60% (and it's been one of the hardest-hitting decks during all of this patch cycle) – yet another deck very happy to farm Jayce Lux, and with a slight edge on Samira Seraphine.

⭐Rising Star – Teemo Zoe

Teemo and Zoe keep the upwards trend we saw last week, abusing pesky elusives with The Darkin LodestoneThe Darkin Lodestone on top.

This is one deck that Jax Ornn is mortally afraid of (and the same is true for Ornn Trundle) – Samira Seraphine and Pirates, on the other hand, just run Teemo Zoe over, and in this case Jayce Lux is quite the problem.

Ornn Trundle

Rounding up this week's Eternal Heavyweights, here's a fairly fresh deck for a change. Pilots did try to make this Champs work at several points in the past, but never with too much success – last week it was a bit of a low-key, fringe success, and it now looks like the time to shine has come for Ornn Trundle.

Forge God and Troll Kind are very good against Jayce Lux, have a slight edge against Samira Seraphine, and steamroll aggressive brews like Pirates and Annie Jhin – they have horrible matchups against Teemo Zoe, Ryze, and Sett Trundle, though, so their success seems a bit dependant on how the LoR meta shapes up.

Punching Up – Eternal Decks Doing Great

Runeterra decks with between 600 and 1000 games in the last three days in the Eternal ladder – we're sailing into small data samples, yet all decks here have quite a few games under their belts.


Ravenbloom Annie Katarina

Annie Katarina remains a very solid deck for the Eternal LoR ladder, but both play rate and win rate have deflated from excellent to just very good – it now punches at 54% (which would be very strong in Standard, but as we've seen it's nothing to write epic poems about in Eternal) in about 800 games in the last three days.

Champless Timelines

The early Eternal boogeyman (so scary that two weeks ago it joined the unofficial Runeterra Hall of Fame of decks that had to be hotfixed least it took over the meta), Champless Timeliness is still alive and kicking – no LoR ladder terror any longer, but still very playable.

Thresh Nasus

Thresh Nasus remains, like in past weeks, one very solid option for the Eternal ladder, but both win and play rate keep deflating a bit – Thresh Nasus has a really rough time against Seraphine Samira, and an uphill struggle against Jax Ornn, making the current LoR meta not the ideal for the Big Dog and his lantern sidekick.

The Eternal Annie Jhin

Losing some steam now that Ryze's popularity has dwindled (odds for Annie Jhin in that matchup are close to 80%...), Annie Jhin's overall performance remains excellent in spite of having an awful matchup against Jax Ornn and a bit of an uphill struggle against Samira Seraphine.

The good news for bullet buff and blazing brat? A nice edge on Jayce Lux.

Other Strong Eternal Considerations

If none of the above float your boat on the Eternal LoR ladder, here are a handful of options that are doing very well.

  • Teemo Tristana, doing very well on ladder and part of the triad that just won the Runeterra Open in the AM shard,
  • Sett Trundle, one of the early powerhouses of the Eternal meta – pushed to the fringes now, but still very, very good, 
  • In case you want an never-seen-before pair, Lucian Taric is putting quite the numbers!  
  • Lulu Poppy, another deck from Team "Let's Do That Old Thing We Did Ages Ago", 
  • Fizz Yuumi Bone ClubBone Club – because it ain't a proper LoR data digging until we find the latest Battle FuryBattle Fury build! =)
  • Braum Vladimir… oddly enough, without their Scragrounds staple.


Best LoR Decks for the Standard Ladder

These are the 7 most popular Standard LoR decks according to the Mastering Runeterra Meta Tier List:

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

While overall fairly stable, it has finally happened: Annie Jhin has dethroned Elites as Runeterra's most popular, and arguably best, deck in the Standard format.


LoR Standard Juggernauts – Best Legends of Runeterra Decks for the Standard Ladder

Here we showcase Standard LoR decks with more than 2100 games in the last three days, and good-to-great win rate – the best tried-and-true tools the LoR meta has to offer!


Eternal this: Annie Jhin

And here we have it, folks: as suggested by last week's trends, the best LoR deck in Standard is Annie Jhin, with 3700 games played in the last three days (same as Elites, as we'll see right next), but punching nearly 3% harder than Garen's crew.

Quite the journey, when you consider that Annie Jhin didn't change a single card in its build until rotation forced it to find new Standard tricks, but here you have it now: most popular archetype, most popular specific decklist, and performance that leaves no doubt about Annie Jhin deserving its place.

It's not unbeatable (Elites actually has a slight edge on Annie Jhin, and Jinx Samira utterly smashes it), but it clearly dominates most of the Standard decks in Runeterra.

Garen Jarvan Kai'Sa

Elites remain the other Juggernaut of the Standard LoR ladder, also with 3700 games played in the last three days and a 55% win rate.

Like Annie Jhin, Elites are not without a couple of counters (in this case, Lurkers), but again consistently dominates the rest of the Standard meta, as they have been doing for nearly all this patch cycle.

LoR Standard Heavyweights – Strong Standard Decks

These Standard decks have between 1000 and 2100 games in the last three days – solid picks for climbing the Legends of Runeterra ladder!


Jinx Samira

Of the two surviving Samira decks in Standard (Jinx Samira being one, Samira Fizz being the other), Jinx's version has cemented itself as clearly the best when looking at ladder numbers, and currently punches at 57% (which, for context, is an amazing performance for Standard).

The pew-pew-BOOM pair bloody murders Annie Jhin (being, in fact, Annie Jhin's only strong counter), is also great against Samira Fizz and Lurkers, and gives Vault Nasus a bloody nose.

Fizz Samira

Although by now clearly weaker than Jinx's version, Fizz Samira remains very popular, and still a very good deck: 54% win rate across 1200 games.

It has huge problems against Jinx's version and performs poorly against Karma Sett, but otherwise is even or favored against most other strong decks.
