By the Numbers – Twenty Best Meta and Off-Meta Decks

"Begone back to your desert, Azir!" yelled Illaoi, "for you rule the Ladder no more. Time for Tentacles to take the Throne!"

LoR Best Decks


This is an older issue of By the Numbers – for the latest, most up-to-date article, check this link!!


Behold!

As of early Tuesday, there is little doubt about who currently bears the crown of best deck in the LoR Ladder – according to Balco:

LoR best decks

… Azirelia, while still the most popular archetype, has run out of weak decks to bully, while Illaoi now has not just one, but two powerful blends to trash the ladder with.


Technical note – what we mean by "LoR best deck"

The above chart groups decks by archetype ("archetype" being the aggregate decklists of a specific champion combination).

Below we'll provide the best decklists for these archetypes – since in each archetype some decklists fare better than others (and sometimes the difference is quite noticeable), we'll broadly group decklists in four arbitrary categories, by amount of games played in the last few days in the data samples we check:

  • Juggernauts: decklists with more than 2100 games – best tried-and-true tools for the climbing job.
  • Heavyweights: between 2100 and 900 games – other excellent choices with large enough samples to confidently say, "Yeah, this works".
  • Punching Up: between 900 and 300 games – we're entering the Land of Small Sample Sizes here, on top of the meta being up in the air, but as far as numbers go, it looks like these decklists can put up one hell of a fight.
  • YMMV: between 300 and 150 games – risky stuff, but here's where you usually find the spice.

For this article, in all cases we'll look at decklists in Platinum and above. 

Sources: Balco, Legna, MaRu's own data-mining.

If you have any feedback on how these decklists could be showcased differently, do let me know! =)


Juggernauts – Best Decks in LoR

Illaoi Bard, LoR best decks

Decklists with more than 2100 games: these are the best LoR decks, tried-and-true tools for the climbing job.

We are only six days into this Patch cycle, and it's a fairly safe bet (with a dash of hope, of course!) that new decks will arise…

… but on the other hand, now only around 10% of the popular decks are LP donors: the current picture is therefore fairly accurate to determine which are the best decks right now


Illaoi Bard

They were the highest-WR Heavyweight last Sunday

… now Chimes and Tentacles are the current Ladder powerhouse, with the exact same list: more than 3,500 games in the last three days, and WR through the roof – literally the highest WR from among all decklists, in all categories, that we'll see today.

It is slightly disfavored against all three versions of Kai'Sa Demacia (Akshan, Sivir, and Lonesome), but has game against everything else – with Azirelia, Yasuo Katarina, Jhinnie and Gwennie being especially good matchups.

Hands down the best decklist I can recommend today!

Annie Jhin

Originality: C-

Brutality: A+

Arguably the most 'solved' deck out there: same as always, both the formula and its ruthless effectiveness, with more than 3,000 games and shooting above 55% WR.

Akshan Kai'Sa Demacia

Unlike Jhinnie, AkKai has several different builds, some of them fairly mediocre – the archetype as a whole is around 51%, while our recommended list below reaches almost 55% in 2,500+ games.

The trick seems to be to focus only on keyword'ed units (ditching Treasure SeekerTreasure Seeker, for example), and Void BlasterVoid Blaster as a 3x in the best-performing lists.

It's hard to have too much faith on matchup tables right now (since there are so many mediocre variations of this archetype), but AkKai seems the underdog against Jhinnie, while favored against Gwennie.

Safe bet that this mutation will become more popular, as more pilots migrate to the list below.

Twisted Fate Annie

Another not-yet solved archetype, but in this case that's arguably a plus: there are several slightly different builds, all doing very well, which suggests the archetype can be further refined (for example, one copy of Culling StrikeCulling Strike seems standard in the best lists).

Hates: Chimes, Tentacles, and Darwin.

Loves: Ascended and their Sand Soldiers, Stunning Blade-wielders.

Irelia Azir

Oh, how the bully has been bullied!

Still the most popular archetype – the list below clocks close to 5,000 games all by itself! – and for sure quite capable of packing a punch, but now only around 52% in the last three days (compared to 55%+ just two days ago).

Favored into all of Kai'Sa's Demacian mutations, but a severe underdog to Annie TF, Illaoi Bard, Jhinnie… and also mortally afraid of spiders of all kinds.

If you are on the fence about this deck, Monte and Leer wrote about their impressions about Azirelia in their Meta Voyage yesterday.

Notable exceptions

Two archetypes that were both popular and powerful two days ago – namely Gwennie and Lone Lulu – didn't make the cut today: they do have lists with more than 2,000 games each, but in both cases they struggle to reach the 50% WR mark.


Heavyweights

Yasuo Katarina, LoR best decks

These decklists have between 900 and 2100 games in the last three days, making them solid choices with large enough samples to confidently say, "Yeah, this works".

On grounds of novelty and popularity, today we'll look at decklists with WRs over 51% (rather than putting the threshold at around 53-54%, as it's often the case in these articles when the meta stabilizes).


Yasuo Katarina

The stunning duo is doing very well with the specific decklist below – a bit like AkKai, there are several other versions doing quite poorly, dragging the archetype's average performance down.

In particular, notice the lack of The MournedThe Mourned and the two copies of Sai'nen Thousand-Tailed as top end.

Also like AkKai, not too much faith can be put on matchup tables (since the archetype is plagued with bad builds), but it appears that KatYa dislikes Azirelia and all versions of Annie (TF, Jhin, Gwen), while being strong against Lone Kai'sa and AkKai (but not the Sivir version).

Sivir Kai'Sa Demacia

The second very successful Kai'Sa Demacia mutation (there's a third, with Kai'Sa as Lone champ, as we'll see further down), with this specific list punching above 55% in more than 1,500 games.

Unlike the Akshan variant, though, all versions of KaiSiv are doing great, which suggests an archetype that can still evolve. In particular, KaiSiv goes for a bit of a lower curve (even if it sticks to the Void AbominationVoid Abomination top-end) and, interestingly, prefers The AbsolverThe Absolver to SuperchargeSupercharge.

Gets headaches from: Spider-Gwen (rather bad), Jhinnie (mild)

Gives headaches to: TF Annie, Annie Gwen, Heimer Jayce

Here are Leer's insights (himself quite the Sivir Akshan fan) about this archetype.

Spider-Gwen

Seamstress and eight-legged mistress have lost a bit of power, but remain quite playable – the list below performs at around 51% with 1,300 games, and there's another nearly identical list with almost the exact same results.

Murders Azirelia and Jhinnie, and is very favored into all Kai'Sa mutations – dies horribly to Illaoi Bard and Heimer Jayce, also struggling against Gwennie and KatYa.

Jinx Bard

Chimes and Rockets are back!

A deck that was making waves just as last Seasonal approached, pioneered by our very own MonteXristo just as Worldwalker launched and later refined by Master Brewer TealRed, who's currently on the decklist recommended below – 1,200 games, 53% WR…

… and you get to play Jinx!

Murders Azirelia, anything with too many spiders, and Jhinnie – dies horribly to Heimer Jayce, and is not too happy to meet Kai'Sa's mutations.

Punching Up

Decklists with between 300 and 900 games played in the last three days – we're entering the Land of Small Sample Sizes here, but as far as numbers go, it looks like these decks can put up one hell of a fight.


Lone Kai'Sa Demacia

This archetype's most popular decklist clocks at around 2,500 games, but its WR is barely above 50%, hence why it does not show up among the Juggernauts.

Its second most popular list, suggested below, reaches nearly 54% across 700 games. I've included it today on grounds of it reaching our thresholds, but as Leer showed yesterday in his Meta Report, at least against the current field, other mutations (with either Akshan or Sivir) are superior on Ladder.

Lone Kai'Sa's main edge seems to be that it actually beats the other two mutations in the semi-mirror (it's quite favored versus AkKai, and slightly versus KaiSiv)

Heimerdinger Jayce Shadows

Ah, the variable archetype!

Professor and Student sure can give  Kai'Sa lessons about mutations and evolution – Heimer Jayce is one of the most scattered archetypes when it comes to amount of different decklists.

The most popular, listed below, sits at 55% WR with more than 600 games played in the last three days.

Sivir Kai'Sa and Thralls (which is still a thing) are its main counters, with Illaoi Bard being a bit of struggle – all other popular matchups are even or favored, making Heimer Jayce always a good recommendation for deck you may want to put some time learning.

Sivir Ziggs Noxus

Noxurimaggro keeps gaining steam…

… and, as we'll see below, the last patch's most popular version (Annie Kat Ziggs) has also resurfaced.

Very little data, but seems strong against Kai'Sa mutations, KatYa and Azirelia.

Lux Illaoi

The forerunner of Worldwalker Day One, later abandoned for other Illaoi Demacia versions…

… but, with Riptide SermonRiptide Sermon – which is also a staple of Bard Illaoi – it seems ready to put a fight again, performing well above 55% in around 450 games.

Elise Annie

So: this has nothing to do with the Worldwalker version of Elise Annie (which, if you are interested in how archetypes evolve, will notices is very much what Annie Gwen attempts to do today, with both Ravenbloom ConservatoryRavenbloom Conservatory and Catalogue of RegretsCatalogue of Regrets).

Quite the contrary: this is classic spiders but with Annie as an extra one-drop, a bit similar like Spider-Gwen nowadays is classic spiders with Gwen as a Doombeast on steroids.

And it's doing very, very well, across 400 games.

Your Mileage May Vary

Decklists with less than 300 games played in the last few days – promising, but too little data to say for sure.


Ahri Bard

Chimes and recalls – one of Worldwalker's strongest decks, now pushed to the fringes yet doing very, very well.

Katarina Ziggs Annie

Last patch, this Noxurimaggro variant was (depending how you define Jhinnie) arguably the only viable aggro deck on the ladder – it's a bit surprising to see it having a smaller play rate than the new Sivir Ziggs, but at any rate, it's doing grand: over 55% in nearly 300 games.

And there's also a version with a 3:2:1 split and a slightly different Unit/Spells ratio, also doing very well.

Lissandra Taliyah

Thralls not dead yet…

… a decidedly fringe option if judging by play rate, yet WR high enough to make you wonder why it's not played more.
