By the Numbers, July 6 – 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 Legends of 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, 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 LoR decks.


Best LoR Decks – Song of Yordles and Sirens

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

Best LoR decks: Legends of Runeterra Meta Decks 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).


It's always with a bit of trepidation that one writes articles like today's "By the Numbers"...

… because you never know if Riot is going to make them obsolete right after you publish them (or while you write them, even!) with an unannounced hotfix, so let's spell it out: yeah, Siren SongSiren Song looks like a broken card.

Siren Song

It's an interesting kind of broken, though, a bit like VayneVayne at her heyday: extremely powerful, but also extremely flexible, thus empowering several different decks – so much so that some Siren Song decks are countering others.

But, as we'll see with today's Juggernauts:

  • The best of the Song decks, Lonesome Fizz, has very few counters, and
  • Since Siren SongSiren Song is so flexible that it allows several different top-tier decks to exist, it's entirely possible to make a Tournament lineup in which all three decks are Song decks.

In other words: expect the nerfbat to swing soon.

In the meantime, let's see what the best LoR decks are (as noted above, not all good decks are Siren Song decks!), including a couple of newcomers that actually have a fighting chance against the Song deluge.


LoR Juggernauts – Best Legends of Runeterra Decks

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


Lonesome Fizz Song

This is how a (most likely) broken deck looks like:

… going from nearly-zero to 6500 games in the last three days, smacking at nearly 60% win rate, but above all, very few weak spots among other strong decks:

Source: Legna's

Lonesome Fizz's case is quite interesting: a lot of its edge comes from how soundly it beats other Siren Song decks. That's not to say Fizz is a one-trick pony: the aquatic Yordle also thrashes Annie Jhin, Illaoi Swain, Lurkers, and the ascending Gnar Jhin, among other strong decks.

The only strong counters to Song Fizz are either fringe options (like Ekko Nidalee or Ekko Jinx), or the new Kennen Jinx deck – and in those cases, Song Fizz still has a fairly solid fighting chance.

At any rate, there's little doubt by the current data: Siren SongSiren Song FizzFizz is the best LoR deck right now, and it's not even close.


Evelynn Kayle

As noted above, Siren SongSiren Song has proven so powerful and flexible that some Song decks are countering others – although Evelynn Kayle remains a powerhouse (with 5000+ games played in the last three days, and a great win rate of nearly 56%), it's suffering greatly from Lonesome Fizz's onslaught.

Also, as was evident last week, Evelynn Kayle has no shortage of other counters among other strong LoR decks: Annie Jhin in particular, but also Karma Sett, Lurkers, and to some extent Jinx Samira all have a good matchup into the Husky menace.

The archetype is still being refined, though, so there may be an as-of-yet undiscovered optimal build for Evelynn Song decks (for example, there's a Kay-less, Lonesome Evelynn deck, although it doesn't seem to perform as well as the Ka-yes version, and as we'll see in a bit, a Diana Evelynn version that is doing well).

Annie Jhin

It's been an interesting week for Annie Jhin, with two competing builds (one of them close to the classic version, the other running Ravenborn TomeRavenborn Tome and Captive GreybackCaptive Greyback)...

… that once again seems to prove that you just can't improve what's already perfected: the close-to-classic version looks, by current numbers, as an excellent LoR deck (with 3100 games played while smacking at 56%) while Tome builds struggle to reach the 50% mark.

As whenever an archetype has two competing builds, matchup data is hard to parse (because matchup data aggregates results from both builds), and we have new decks this week (making comparisons with past performance impossible) – that said, it looks like Annie Jhin is roughly even against Song Fizz, appears as a strong counter to Evelynn decks (which was already apparent last week), and weak to Jinx Samira and Illaoi Swain.

Further reading: Annie Jhin Deck Guide


Jinx Samira

Everybody's favorite Riot grrrls have gained a lot of traction, accruing close to 3000 games in the last three days (up from 2000 last week), punching at an excellent 56% win rate.

Jinx Samira has an uneasy relationship with Siren SongSiren Song decks: it's slightly favored against Kayle Evelynn, roughly even against Lonesome Fizz, and the underdog against the ascending Diana Evelynn.

In other matchups, Jinx Samira folds against Illaoi Swain, while reliably beating Annie Jhin and Lurkers.


Illaoi Swain

Priestess and Grand General have surged forward, and in spite of their poor odds against the Fizz tide they showcase a nice 54%+ winrate across 2900 games.

Illaoi Swain can hold its own against other Siren Song decks (like Evelynn Kayle, or Evelynn Diana), gets wrecked by Fizz Samira (which seems in the decline), and consistently crushes Annie Jhin, Jinx Samira, Lurkers, and Karma Sett.

Jinx Kennen

Turns out Fizz is not the only Yordle that leapfrogs to the top this week!

JinxJinx has found in KennenKennen an eager partner for her Discard synergies, in particular gaining access to Return-o WrenchReturn-o Wrench:

Performance is thus far very good (with a rocketing 56% win rate in about 2400 games), and with an interesting twist: Jinx Kennen is one of the very few decks with an edge (albeit slight) over Song Fizz, while brutally murdering Annie Jhin and Fizz Samira, and consistently beating the other Discard deck, Jinx Samira.

Jinx Kennen's problem is Illaoi Swain, which is a horrendous matchup, and looks like the underdog against the new Evelynn Diana and Gnar Jhin.


Frozen Puffcaps: Teemo FRFreljord

There are actually three Yordles leapfrogging to the top this week – and one of them, TeemoTeemo actually comes in two flavors!

Eschewing his partnership with Caitlyn (and for good measure: Caitlyn Teemo is not a good deck right now) and putting Sump MonumentSump Monument to good use, FRFreljord TeemoTeemo goes all-in on Poison PuffcapPoison Puffcaps – and the bet seems to be paying off, because Frozen Puffcaps punches at a 52% in about 2300 games. The deck consistently beats Evelynn decks, but dies to Song Fizz and Annie Jhin.

LoR Heavyweights – Strong LoR Decks

These decks have between 1000 and 2100 games since the patch landed – while still too early to tell, the majority of these are well-tested decks that were already among the best LoR decks last patch, so it's a safe bet they'll serve you well in the coming days.


Diana Evelynn

While fairly similar to other EvelynnEvelynn Siren SongSiren Song decks, DianaDiana seems to fit very well in a shell that already had some Nightfall triggers, and is all about buffing units with Husks.

At any rate, the best Diana Evelynn deck (there are several versions doing quite well) showcases a chunky 55% win rate in 1800+ games, but with a somewhat different matchup spread than other Evelynn decks: in this case, Annie Jhin is an even matchup (rather than quite bad), while Karma Sett goes from favored to disfavored.

Pesky Elusives: Teemo IOIonia

Don't let the Siren SongSiren Song tree obscure the Yordle forest: this week has been excellent for our furry friends, and Teemo shows up with a second deck!

Forget about Puffcaps, it's all-in on Elusives this time, for a very solid 53%+ performance in around 1700 games – and very good odds against all Siren Song decks!

Teemo IOIonia has one of the worst matchups out there against Illaoi Swain and Karma Sett, though, so if you're going Elusives keep an eye on how the meta shifts.

Lonesome Bilge Aatrox

Now that Reaver's Row and Siren SongSiren Song are all the rage, let's not forget who came up with merging Xolaani and one-drops a long time ago: AatroxAatrox BWBilgewater!

Yet another deck you may consider either for the LoR ladder (punching at nearly 56% win rate in about 1400 games) and/or your triple-Song Tournament lineup, Aatrox BWBilgewater is perhaps the runt of the litter, losing badly when facing other Song decks, and also losing to Annie Jhin and Fizz Samira.

On the other hand, it has excellent odds against Karma Sett, which tends to be a tough nut to crack for other Song decks.

Karma Sett

Like Annie Jhin, we find Karma Sett with two different builds this week – but in this case, both Karma Sett decks seem to be doing fairly well.

The PZPiltover & Zaun version, which has been in the past months the only one that consistently worked well, performs today at a solid 52% in about 1100 games, and finds itself in an interesting spot when it comes to matchups: it's roughly even against the majority of strong decks (including Annie Jhin, Jinx Samira, Evelynn decks, and Lonesome Fizz), with only two weak spots: Illaoi Swain, and Aatrox BWBilgewater:

The Targon version's trick seems to be its amazing odds against Evelynn decks – Fizz and Lurkers become fairly bad matchups, though, and the Piltovan version of Karma Sett is far superior in the near-mirror.


Fizz Samira

While still popular, Fizz Samira is just a shadow of its former self, with a modest 51% win rate.

Still very playable, but Siren Song Fizz or Jinx Samira are superior, depending on which champ you prefer.

Garen Jarvan Kai'Sa

From among archetypes that were among the best LoR decks before this expansion, Elites is arguably the one that enjoys Siren SongSiren Song the least: violently dislodged from the upper echelons, Garen Jarvan Kai'Sa drops to 1300 games with a 53% win rate – still a very good deck, but with lousy matchups against Lone Fizz, Aatrox Bilgewater, and Evelynn decks.

Elites still have the upper hand versus other strong decks (like Jinx Samira or Annie Jhin), so should Siren Song get nerfed, it may be again time for Garen Elites to shine.

Garen Neeko

At the bottom of our Heavyweights category, with a modest 51% win rate, we find the first viable deck with one of the new Champions: Garen Neeko.

Quite a playable deck, and gets extra points for novelty's sake, but far from the strongest option for the LoR ladder.

Punching Up – LoR Decks Doing Great

Runeterra decks with between 600 and 1000 games since the patch landed – we're sailing into small data samples, yet all decks here have quite a few games under their belts.


Gnar Jhin

For the first time in ages, Jhin has seemingly found a new profitable partnership: Gnar Jhin brings back Lord BroadmaneLord Broadmane with tons of pings, to punch at 53% in nearly 1000 games.

There are several different versions here (some of them including Norra, and even versions running Gnarr Norra instead of Jhin) and all of them doing well, which usually suggests a better, more streamlined version is about to show up!

Pyke Rek'Sai, aka Lurkers

Pyke's crew is doing okay among all these Sirens – Lonesome Fizz is a horrible matchup, but Pyke & Co. have a small edge against Evelynn Kayle.
