Road to Seasonals 5/11 Winner’s Lineups

Wednesday's tournament sees the beautiful return of xxWhatAmIxx to the throne with an anti-aggro Pantheon list, Afaelios, and Sandy Viego

Wednesday's Road to Seasonals tournament had a showing of great players such as the champ xxWhatAmIxx. At least in our own little meta, the Origami Killer is alive and well, and rarely banned as well it would seem based on the stream coverage. Without further ado, the lineups.

1st Place - xxWhatAmIxx of the Mastering Runeterra Pro Team

Now here we have some innovation, makes sense coming from Mr.Beautiful Game himself! This version tosses in a Taric over a Yuumi and two Fleetfeather Trackers to tech itself to be stronger against aggro! With all the combat-tricks the deck has already, it's fairly easy to angle one plus a bird into taking out a key threat like Miss Fortune or something of the sorts. Aside from that it's fairly standard, hedging slightly by holding one Bastion to slant against control, and two Camphor to help go wider and diversify threats.

With the thought of skewing strong decks to fight aggro, this list makes a fair bit of sense. This deck has a lot of tools to effectively block early on such as Aspiring Chronomancer, Fading Icon, and the normal removal suite like Vile Feast and Vengeance. It all aims to find a Viego, get him out, and then continue to trade off and level him.

This list feels a touch more traditional, except having a Wallop as their tech choice, a powerful list we'll certainly see more of later on...

Oh hey, that took a while. This version incorporates Bandle Commandos and two Bastions to keep Aphelios going and to keep any non-Fizz threats alive.

Looks like they preferred the two Herald version, nothing too spicy aside from that or special as far as tech goes.

A much more normal list, aside from the -1 Yuumi and +1 Taric, possibly as just another threat or to avoid double-drawing Yuumi.

The interesting part here is the lack of Ancient Preparations, opting to up some of the spell options such as The Absolver, Unleashed Energy, and it goes up to three Hexplosive Minefields.

This scouts list looks fairly normal but they've gone up to a full THREE copies of Ranger's Resolve, something I don't think I've ever seen a deck do. This combined with the Durand Sculptors makes it nearly impossible to handle their units efficiently, making it easy to snowball an early tempo lead. Especially combined with temporary buffs like For Demacia and Genevieve for extra Potency.

Here we see a person who likes a bit more early interaction, in the form of two Pokey Sticks to try and do a little more early on. In unit-light decks such as Taliyah Ziggs where you want to avoid blocking with your champions too much this can go a long way in helping keep things from going out of control.
