Eleven Legends of Runeterra Decks with Jax

Reveal season has come and gone, meaning it’s time to build new decks! Jax has leapt onto the scene as one of the new Runeterran champions, bringing a number of new mechanics with him: Equipment, Improvise and Forge – below we'll share eleven LoR decks, pairing Jax with every region in Runeterra!

YouTube video

New Cards and Mechanics arrive to LoR

Equipment is a new card type that attaches to a unit and grants its stats and keywords to the wielding unit, with the Equipment returning to hand if the wielder is removed (in other words, Equipment works like Attach units such as YuumiYuumi… but it’s not a unit).

We also have two new mechanics. Improvise allows for you to choose a weapon to equip to a unit on summon, out of two randomly selected items from a set pool that progressively empties. And Forge either grants +1/+1 to a unit with no Equipment, or if the unit is equipped then the Equipment gains the stats instead.

Being a Runeterran champion, JaxJax has a more limited card pool – therefore, the secondary region that you choose is quite important. I think each region has something to offer the Grandmaster at Arms, but some definitely bring more to the table than others.

Open deck in builder

Old-school Yordles in Arms Yordles in Arms sometimes had trouble finding a fourth region to trigger the extra +1/+1 by round five, as most multi-region cards that we had were Bandle City + X, but JaxJax’s package has introduced a whole swath of new multi-region cards that aren’t half Bandle City! 

We can now have Yordles in Arms Yordles in Arms active on round two with just Fireth, Reaper of the SandsFireth, Reaper of the Sands and Grandfather FaeGrandfather Fae, Blastcone SeedlingBlastcone Seedling, or Ionian HookmasterIonian Hookmaster. And if we can’t find Yordles in Arms Yordles in Arms , the old swarm strategy has gotten a lot of new weapons.

Since all of JaxJax’s followers are multi-region cards, Bandle City MayorBandle City Mayor can help us to cheat out our Improvise units and flood the board. He can also find us an additional Improvise unit if we haven’t quite found the piece of Equipment that we want.

This horde of multi-region minions TURBO-boosts our TristanaTristana's level-up as well and makes her absolutely enormous. Having access to Scout and Overwhelm through our Equipment makes these stats much more meaningful, and she becomes an immediate must-answer card.  On summon, TristanaTristana will also grant Impact and +1/+0 to the majority of our followers, which can cause headaches for our opponent even if we don’t find Yordles in Arms Yordles in Arms .

Yordle CaptainYordle Captain functions as another value engine as he makes our Improvise units incredibly mana-efficient. Most of our units have low Power before they Improvise, and will get an additional +1/+1 on summon, making them absurdly large for the cost. Ionian HookmasterIonian Hookmaster with Yordle CaptainYordle Captain and Pot O' PainPot O is a house, coming down as a 2 mana 3/4.

TentacleTentacle took a hit with the BardBard nerf and have fallen out of favor, but maybe JaxJax is equipped to help them Forge a new place in the meta!

Tentacles can get tall pretty quickly with just the tools available in Bilgewater, but stats don’t mean much if a 1/1 can stand between you and the enemy Nexus. IllaoiIllaoi and The Sea's Voice can help our Tentacles here by giving them Overwhelm and letting them power through chump blockers, but what do we do when those two are nowhere to be found?

We Improvise.

The Keywords on each piece of Equipment that JaxJax’s followers can create are all great for our Tentacles to wrap around. FishawhackFishawhack, Sandworn AmuletSandworn Amulet and The Fix-Em 5000The Fix-Em 5000 are especially good by making blocks much more awkward for our opponents, and they can also protect our key units – like IllaoiIllaoi and The Sea's Voice – when we attack, to ensure that we get more than one swing in.

Once we’ve equipped our Tentacle, any strikes that it makes will contribute to JaxJax’s level-up condition. JaxJax is a valid alternate win condition for us; The Light of IcathiaThe Light of Icathia can be an imposing weapon once it has Overwhelm and gives us another way to push through damage with our Tentacle. 

The stats that the Equipment provides also contributes to our typical TentacleTentacle tactics by further boosting our tentacle’s power. Putting a piece of Equipment on a Tentacle over IllaoiIllaoi will usually be better because it will add to the power that she copies on attack.

Stat buffs and Challengers, name a more iconic duo.

Our gameplan is pretty straightforward: we take control of the board by buffing our Challenger units with Equipment, and run our opponent over with PoppyPoppy and Golden AegisGolden Aegis.

PoppyPoppy has always loved being able to get an extra swing in with her hammer, but JaxJax also benefits a lot from having Rally effects available to him. Getting an extra attack can significantly progress JaxJax’s level-up condition and he will quickly grow out of control once he is leveled.

Equipment is also very synergistic with PoppyPoppy, as the boost to her Power ensures she gives our whole board a +1/+1 buff, while the extra Health gives her a chance to stick to the board and possibly level up.

The amount of Equipment in our deck also all but guarantees that Ranger-Knight DefectorRanger-Knight Defector comes down with Scout active. With Quick Attack or Challenger from Entrancing LureEntrancing Lure we can apply additional pressure, especially if we are able to pair our PoppyPoppy with Upcycled RakeUpcycled Rake!

Combat champs love Demacia and I wouldn’t be surprised if Jax is able to find a home here.

JaxJax and OrnnOrnn look to be the new premade pair for the Awakening expansion, and I’ve decided to go all-in on Forge. The entire premise of this deck is to make an enormous weapon with Weaponsmith's Apprentice and our other Forge cards, so that OrnnOrnn can come down swinging hard.

Unfortunately, our apprentice is a touch fragile at 1 Health, and slapping her down on Round 1 without protection is not always going to be a viable option. Even if we miss a few Forge triggers, it is much better to wait until we can get a piece of Equipment on her and ensure she sticks around.

We have a number of other Forge cards at our disposal if we lose our Weaponsmith's Apprentice, and I’ve included a copy of Ornn's Forge to provide a consistent source of stat buffs for our Equipment.

Bellows BreathBellows Breath not only gives us an additional source of Forge, but also helps to ensure we live long enough to actually slam down our big forge boy by trimming down the enemy board.

Troll ChantTroll Chant and Three SistersThree Sisters help to keep our important cards on board and Three SistersThree Sisters can also be used offensively to level our JaxJax, or to push additional damage by removing a blocker.

Wildclaw's Ferocity may look a bit out of place here, but transformed units keep their equipment, and surprising our opponent with a 10/9 Scout and Overwhelm unit to push for lethal sounds like a good time to me!

Master YiMaster Yi may need to learn to use something other than a sword – our gameplan here is to trigger Flow and use Equipment on Master YiMaster Yi to progress both his own level-up and JaxJax’s at the same time.

The extra power from Equipment helps to accelerate Master YiMaster Yi’s level-up condition, while the health boost ensures we keep him on board long enough to actually level. As far as keywords go, Scout and Overwhelm are still the stars of the show, but Fearsome and Tough can go a long way for the Wuju swordsman.

To keep Master YiMaster Yi relevant, we have to go fairly spell-heavy with our build. Momentous ChoiceMomentous Choice is very efficient in our deck as one-mana +2/+0 or +0/+2 that also triggers Flow. Entrancing LureEntrancing Lure is very strong when paired with our Quick Attack units and can also be used to ensure that we push maximum damage with Overwhelm. And Horns of the DragonHorns of the Dragon may look cheesy here, but anyone who remembers Papercraft DragonPapercraft Dragon decks knows that Double Attack is insanely strong when paired with Overwhelm.

By the time that we slap down Horns of the DragonHorns of the Dragon on board we should be able to either equip him with FishawhackFishawhack or swap The Light of IcathiaThe Light of Icathia over with SharesiesSharesies, to finish off the enemy Nexus.

RumbleRumble’s got missiles and a flamethrower, but what if we added a rake? This deck is all about finding RumbleRumble, giving him Equipment, and obliterating the enemy Nexus with our Spellshield, Quick Attacking, Scout Mech on round four.

Since we can’t stack Equipment keywords, we have MightMight to give us a source of Overwhelm and extra damage if we do manage to find Upcycled RakeUpcycled Rake

In addition to just killing our opponent, RumbleRumble can fulfill half of JaxJax’s level-up condition with a single swing, making it very easy to put Jax on the board leveled and providing us with an additional threat. The rest of the deck is set up to pressure the opponent and cycle through Equipment to set up for a big swing once we find RumbleRumble, and burn down whatever is left of the enemy Nexus with DecimateDecimate if our opponent manages to survive.

Parts Made WholeParts Made Whole is in the deck to help us to find RumbleRumble and JaxJax while applying additional pressure with the summoned Icathian MirageIcathian Mirage.

Cards with good summon effects and bad stats… these belong in a Concurrent TimelinesConcurrent Timelines deck. This is admittedly a worse version of the Freljord Timelines deck since we lose access to Ice PillarIce Pillar, but it still makes enormous units with good keywords! 

Not to mention summoning a 9/7 Ancient CrocolithAncient Crocolith with Overwhelm is pretty funny.

ViVi can become an immense threat here, with the extra stats and keywords from Improvise. Quick Attack can make it easy for us to remove our opponent’s threats efficiently, and Fearsome can set us up to go straight for face.

In short, Improvise is cracked with Concurrent TimelinesConcurrent Timelines, but stick to the Freljord list and just add Piltovan CastawayPiltovan Castaway and Combat CookCombat Cook.

I’m sure you’ve noticed, but big stats are good with Scout and Overwhelm. Hallowed lets us build a permanent attack buff, making every unit that lands on the board a threat, and also making it much easier to level JaxJax.

GwenGwen definitely benefits from having Equipment available to her as the extra power makes her harder to block, and accelerates her level-up condition. 

Blades of the FallenBlades of the Fallen keeps our board healthy while we trade away our Hallowed units, and ensures that we have a unit to take advantage of our Hallowed stacks. Trading away our Hallowed units also lets us profit from the discount for Malefic SpearMalefic Spear. If we can’t manage to finish our opponent off with a big GwenGwen or JaxJax, we’ve still got The HarrowingThe Harrowing in our back pocket to seal the deal.

Big Overwhelm units + more stats = good.

RenektonRenekton has been overshadowed since the last expansion by Kai'Sa and Void BlasterVoid Blaster, and the recent nerf to Papercraft DragonPapercraft Dragon has further pushed him to the fringes, but with a little help I think the old croc can shine again.

RenektonRenekton needs to do damage to level and oftentimes his low Health makes it hard to keep him on the board. Giving him Tough, Quick Attack, or even just a couple more points of Health make him much more likely to stick around. Entrancing LureEntrancing Lure also triggers his attack buff while drawing a card, keeping us from running out of gas and while taking down our opponent’s board.

Ruin RunnerRuin Runner benefits from Equipment in a similar manner, using the stat gains and keywords to ensure that she is able to swing more than once and continue to push damage to the enemy Nexus.

PantheonPantheon was a long-standing meta staple, until the fateful day it took a nerf to the knee and was left forgotten when Zenith BladeZenith Blade was nerfed to only Give (instead of Grant) Overwhelm, and Scout was removed from PantheonPantheon’s keyword pool. But now with JaxJax, we can Grant Overwhelm again and slap Scout right onto PantheonPantheon instead of praying to the keyword casino gods (he doesn’t like them anyways)!

Fated makes Equipment incredibly efficient: targeting Wounded WhiteflameWounded Whiteflame, Saga SeekerSaga Seeker, or PantheonPantheon will grant an additional +1/+1 on top of the stats from the Equipment, not to mention the keywords that come with it. Big units love keywords and the whole pool of Improvise weapons are at least situationally useful, but some are definitely more useful than others and we are typically looking for Scout, Quick Attack, Overwhelm, or Tough.

Seal In SteelSeal In Steel is a perfect fit for this archetype. It allows us to save our built-up stats from Fated triggers, and transfer them to a new unit when the previous wielder is targeted with hard removal like VengeanceVengeance. This allows us to maintain pressure with a large unit instead of having to start over from scratch.

Seal In SteelSeal In Steel can also give us two separate triggers for Fated: once for the spell and once for when we play the Equipment, furthering PantheonPantheon’s level-up condition.

Open deck in builder

Once again, Runeterran champs don’t mix. The pools of cards are too small to make an effective deck and even if they appear to have synergy, it isn’t enough to compensate for their limitations.


Closing Thoughts

Jax, one of the new Legends of Runeterra Champions

JaxJax has a very flexible pool as Runeterran champion, and in my opinion is likely to find a home in a Tier 2 deck as the meta settles.

Improvise is a fun mechanic to play with, and gives opportunities for skill expression throughout the game. Even if Jax doesn’t stay relevant, I believe that his followers will be present in the meta, especially if Timelines becomes a top tier deck.
