By the Numbers, Oct 5 – 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.

The recent Fate’s Voyage: Onward expansion has rocked the boat quite hard and the LoR meta keeps shifting, so let's find out what are the best decks in Runeterra right now!


Best LoR Decks for the Standard Ladder

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



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

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


As Yangzera notes in his Runeterra Open Report, "This was probably the most diverse meta in a long while, where we literally had 9 different decks win the Opens."

The same remains true for the Legends of Runeterra ladder, making Onwards one of the best expansions, and one of the most diverse LoR ladder metas, with all three of the new champions having a strong deck.


Juggernauts – Best Legends of Runeterra Decks for the Standard Ladder

These are the current heavy-hitters of the Standard LoR meta: decks with at least 3000 games played in the last three days.


Gnar Jarvan

Never relenting, GnarGnar Jarvan IVJarvan IV will end this patch cycle as one of the best, if not the best, decks for the LoR ladder. The most played specific decklist with 3600 games in the last three days, and always punching at a stellar 56%+ win rate, the deck can also considered solved and it's the exact same build as last week.

Gnar Jarvan consistently beats Nilah Janna (and most other Janna decks), Gwen Vayne, and Samira Seraphine, while also having a slight edge against Lone Nidalee, Heimer Jayce, Teemo Yuumi and Galio Volibear…

… but, cementing the argument that this is one of the best Runeterra metas in quite a long time, this powerhouse is not without predators: Lurkers and the ascending Jax Ornn have very good odds against Prince and Yordle, and some versions of Wild Annie IOIonia (more on this below) also have the upper hand.

Further reading: Gnar Jarvan Deck Guide.


Nilah Janna

NilahNilah JannaJanna is this patch's "Never Surrender!" story: after a really lousy first week after the expansion landed, both for this deck in particular and Nilah decks in general, Nilah Janna read the tides right and became not just one of the best decks for the LoR ladder, but reached the top of one Runeterra Open, in the EMEA's champion lineup.

Like last week, there are two quite different versions putting up good numbers; one with Acorn, the HextechnicianAcorn, the Hextechnician among the one-drops, currently showing a nearly 54% win rate in about 3100 games..

Matchups should be taken with care (since matchup data aggregates all versions, and thus it's hard to tell how each build performs specifically), but Lurkers, Heimer Jayce, and Annie Ionia look like easy prey, Gwen Vayne and Lone Nidalee seem about 50/50 matchups, and FRFreljord decks (which is a pretty varied group, including Gnar Jarvan, Jax Ornn, and Galio Volibear) show up as fairly lousy matchups.

Pyke Rek'Sai, aka Lurkers

Aaaand Lurkers keep punching up, blowing foes out of the water left and right!

Solved a long time ago, Pyke's crew keep the amazing performance they have been showing for two patches in a row now, pushing past 3000 games in the last three days and smacking at nearly 56% – it felt a bit weird to write, during last patch, "Lurkers have never been better", but looks like tasting blood on the water has really motivated PykePyke Rek'Sai to keep pushing forward. 

Part of Lurkers' current success is due to folks playing, for some unknown reason, a lot of Nasus Senna, which is a weak deck overall and particularly soft against Pyke's crew. But they also have good odds against real decks: Gnar Jarvan, Heimer Jayce, Jax Ornn, and especially Galio Volibear are favored for Lurkers.

Things are not so rosy against Nilah Janna and Teemo Yummi, but they are not disastrous and they seem to be Lurker's only weak spots among strong decks.

Heavyweights – Strong LoR Decks for the Standard Ladder

These decks have between 1800 and 3000 games in the last three days – solid heavy-hitters for your LoR laddering needs!


Lone Nidalee

Well, it was not a fluke: she fumbled most of her own expansion, but NidaleeNidalee really caught good winds and is sailing onwards now!

Lonesome Nidalee, with nearly 2900 games and a 54%+ win rate, proves this week that it's the real thing and one of the best decks for the Legends of Runeterra ladder:

Earlier versions included one copy of GnarGnar, but the Yordle is too busy punching faces alongside Jarvan and has left this build.

All in all, Lone Nidalee seems one of the most "fair" decks out there right now, with odds in the 45/55 range when facing pretty much every other strong deck – the only exception being Jax Ornn, which is fairly unfavorable for Nidalee.

Galio Volibear

A bit crestfallen but still putting up a fight, GalioGalio VolibearVolibear showcases today about 2200 games played in a three-day window (roughly half of what it had last week, and just a sliver of its massive popularity two weeks ago) with a very decent 52%+ win rate.

Galio Volibear has excellent odds against Janna Nilah and can go toe-to-toe with Gnar Jarvan, but is awful against Lurkers and Heimer Jayce, would rather not bump into Gwen Vayne, and is the underdog against Jax Ornn. And it has a disastrous matchup against Nasus Senna, which is itself not a very good deck but completely dominates this matchup.

⭐Rising Star: Teemo Yuumi

TeemoTeemo YuumiYuumi once again shows that it's not to be underestimated, increasing its play rate a bit to about 2200 games in the last three days and punching close to the 55% win rate mark.

Teemo Yuumi remains excellent against Galio Volibear, beats Lurkers and Lone Nidalee, it's roughly even against Nilah Janna and Gwen Vayne, and consistently beats the ascending Jax Ornn – on the other hand, it has a truly awful matchup against Nasus Senna, making it one of the few good decks that loses the big dog.

Opulent Gwen Vayne

GwenGwen VayneVayne's play rate has cooled off quite a bit, dropping from 3000 to 2000 games played in a three-day window, but its excellent 55% win rate remains untouched.

The current ascension of Jax Ornn may be a problem, though, given Gwen Vayne's poor odds in that matchup.

Wild Annie Ionia

The image of a WildfireWildfire is not too bad to illustrate the performance of AnnieAnnie IOIonia: this is without a doubt the most flexible archetype in Legends of Runeterra right now, as seen both in the number of variations in the LoR ladder and in the Tournament scene.

Specifically for the ladder, just like last week, AnnieAnnie SamiraSamira is the most popular version, with about 2000 games played and an excellent 56%+ win rate:

Not Working Too Well: Nasus Senna, Bard Viego, Janna Targon and Lissandra Volibear

Nasus Senna is a really weird case: it's massively popular (by play rate alone, it would be today's #1 Juggernaut), and gained a ton of traction after the Runeterra Open…

… but it's not really a good deck for the LoR ladder, struggling to reach a 49% win rate. It's really a mystery why folks are playing it so much.

Still, the deck does have a significant impact in the current meta: it's keeping Galio Volibear and Teemo Yuumi in check, given that Nasus Senna is indeed great in those cases, and is donating LP to Lurkers, Lone Nidalee, and Wild Annie decks, that have great odds against it.

At any rate, though, not a deck we can recommend against the current field of the Runeterra ladder.

Bard Viego, Janna Targon, and Liss Volibear suffer the same fate: very popular for some reason, yet all of them show subpar performance – not decks you want to pilot if you go by the numbers.


Punching Up – Standard LoR Decks Doing Great

Jax, a Legends of Runeterra Champion

Standard LoR decks with between 900 and 1800 games in the last three days – we're sailing into small data samples here, so pilots beware!


⭐Rising Star: Jax Ornn

After promising results as a fringe option, JaxJax OrnnOrnn has decided to take things seriously: while still a not-too-popular deck, its play rate has increased a lot and it's still hitting like a hammer, striking at nearly 56%.

And, as you may have noticed from previous decks' matchups, it's very well-positioned: Jax Ornn consistently beats Janna Nilah, Lone Nidalee and Gnar Jarvan, has good odds against Galio Volibear and Gwen Vayne, and can go toe-to-toe versus Heimer Jayce, Lurkers, and Wild Annie decks (and is not too bothered by Nasus Senna).

It seems to have one single weak spot against popular decks: Teemo Yuumi. All in all, a great option for the LoR ladder!

⭐Rising Star: Sejuani Teemo

Frozen Puffcaps has been a thing in the past, but this SejuaniSejuani TeemoTeemo version is a lot less puffcap-y and a lot more Warden-y. Pretty much out of nowhere, it has accrued nearly 900 games in the last three days and an astounding 59% win rate – if you want to try something new that may be the next big thing, look no further!

Your Mileage May Vary

If none of the above 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!


Teemo Elusives

No longer the best TeemoTeemo deck, a title that currently belongs to Teemo Yuumi, TeemoTeemo Elusive s never quite regained the popularity it enjoyed last patch, but it still punches hard.

If you don't hate elusives, this one may be an interesting choice to climb the ladder fast.

Akshan Pantheon

Grinning Rogue and God-Slayer's performance is nothing to write epic poems about (just a solid 52% win rate) but pilots really seem to like this pair. Their main targets seem to be Heimer Jayce and weaker brews; matchups against other strong decks are from slightly to very unfavored.

Illaoi Jarvan

Marred a bit by lousy odds against Lurkers and Gnar Jarvan, IllaoiIllaoi Jarvan IVJarvan IV performance remains an excellent 55%, and seems the only current option for fans of the tentacle Priestess.

If you want something with which to give Nilah Janna a bloody nose, this deck is a great option; also very good against Gwen Vayne.

Janna Teemo

Pivoting from BWBilgewater to a splash of DEDemacia, and switching from NilahNilah to TeemoTeemo, Janna Teemo is putting up an amazing, if fringe, performance.
