The best decks in the game.
This is a tierlist of my personally built decks of the highest performing archetypes.
Tier 1: ~56+% WR. These decks dominate the meta.
Tier 2: ~53-55% WR. Solid decks I'd recommend climbing with.
Offmeta: ~50-52% WR. These decks are climbable, but will be slow and harder.
New Decks: New deck this week, either by me or from ladder stats, has potential.
|shadow-isles shurima||0|Tier 1 Decks||1||
This aggressive anti-aggro deck is perfect for those who enjoy sacrificing their own units to apply pressure. Comboing Cursed Keeper with a Ravenous Butcher can result in massive early damage, and if that’s not enough Nasus Atrocity will end the game on the spot.
|shurima ionia||0|Tier 1 Decks||2||
||New Irelia Azir||1||Medium||Combo||
This lightning fast combo deck is for the players who love to bombard their opponent with constant attacks from card effects. Set up Azir or Emperor’s Dais and then spam blade dances until your opponent folds to the unrelenting pressure.
|shadow-isles freljord||1|Tier 2 Decks||3||
||Watcher Combo Control||2||Punishing||Control||
This control-combo deck is all about sweeping the board over and over again to stall for the turn 8 combo. With Trundle’s Ice Pillars empowering Lissandra , and Spectral Matron being useable on Lissandra or The Watcher, you instantly obliterate the opponent deck on turn 8-9.
|noxus shurima||1|Tier 2 Decks||4||
||New Shurima Swarm||2||Easy||Aggro||
This straightforward aggro deck is for those who want to rush down their opponent as fast as possible, transitioning into huge overwhelm units and burn to end the game. Quickly swarm the board with cheap units, sometimes ending the game on their own without needing anything bigger.
|shurima freljord||1|Tier 2 Decks||5||
This deck is for players who enjoy smacking down large aggressive overwhelm units. Make your opponent’s threats Vulnerable to remove them while keeping your units alive until a Battle Fury or just sheer power from your units demolishes the opponent’s nexus.
|noxus piltover-zaun||1|Tier 2 Decks||6||
This tricky aggro deck is for players who love to cheat out units and go wide to deal explosive damage in the early game. Crowd Favorite and Vision make an early swarm board terrifying, and if that doesn’t kill them, Jinx will.
|demacia targon||1|Tier 2 Decks||7||
||New Midrange Dragons||2||Punishing||Midrange||
This slow midrange deck is ideal for players who enjoy out valuing and punishing aggressive decks with healing while slowly developing an army of dragons. Finish the game with Eclipse Dragon followed by Aurelion Sol to make your opponent concede.
|noxus piltover-zaun||1|Tier 2 Decks||8||
This reactive midrange-control deck is for players who enjoy controlling the board whilst also developing some early pressure. Ballistic Bot and Draven can provide some early damage, while Ezreal, Captain Farron and potentially a massive unit from Tri-Beam Improbulator are all ways to close out the game.
|shadow-isles noxus||1|Tier 2 Decks||9||
This scary aggro deck is for those who enjoy swarming the board with units that end up dealing some deadly direct damage due to their Fearsome keyword. 1 drops and Elise start the fight with some big hits followed by Frenzied Skitterer to reduce the amount of potential blockers and if that doesn’t finish them off then a Decimate or Doombeast will.
|targon shadow-isles||1|Tier 2 Decks||10||
This deck is for the aggro lovers who want a more complex deck that makes use of powerful nightfall effects to overpower your opponent. Unlike most aggro decks, you have to plan out turns in advance and bank mana. Diana can slowly pick off blockers whilst you set up multiple Doombeasts or a massive Nocturne swing to close the game.
|noxus freljord||1|Tier 2 Decks||11||
This deck is perfect for the midrange players who love to control the opponent’s units with their own. Freezes combined with your own big units will allow you to shut down any strategy revolving around big units. If a leveled Ashe doesn’t freeze out your opponent from blocking then Legion Marauder will quickly overpower any board.
|freljord demacia||2|Offmeta Decks||13||
||Step on me Fiora||3||Punishing||Control||
For bigbrains who love winning the game through unique win conditions. This deck turns the game into chess, playing around every single opponent option while planning ahead to the the 4 kill Fiora instant win condition.
|targon bilgewater||2|Offmeta Decks||12||
You’ll have to think about the game very differently to pilot this one well as your main win condition is through healing instead of damage. If you love unorthodox lines of thinking and preventing your opponents win condition, this is the deck for you. Tahm Kench can singlehandedly shut down any gameplan until you achieve Star Springs 22 heal win condition via massive heals provided by Soraka to end the game.
|targon ionia||2|Offmeta Decks||14||
||Lee Sin Zoe||3||Punishing||Combo||
If you’re a fan of killing your opponent in a single turn or enjoy using your opponent units to shatter their nexus with a few kicks then Lee Sin is the deck for you. Zoe, Eye of the Dragon and Mountain Goat provide some stall and cheap spells to level up Lee Sin. Combining Zenith Blade with other buffs onto a Level 2 Lee Sin will end the game with style, or Sparklefly can sneak past any blockers to chip away at the nexus.
|shadow-isles bilgewater||2|Offmeta Decks||15||
If you’re a person who doesn’t mind sacrificing half of your deck in order to massively buff up units and dominate the board then Deep might just be your new favorite deck. It revolves around early Toss cards like Dreg Dredgers and Sea Scarab to go Deep fast, followed by Nautilus or Lure of the Depths to discount your Sea Monsters in order to swarm the board with massive beasts.
|noxus freljord||2|Offmeta Decks||16||
A midrange combo deck using the self harm archetype with new cards like Crimson Bloodletter, Blighted Ravine and Ice Shard. Mulligan for Scargrounds and early proactive plays.
|shurima noxus||2|Offmeta Decks||17||
||New Lebonk Sivir||3||Medium||Midrange||
A surprisingly flexible deck, depending on the situation can be played very aggressive or reactively with Bloody Business shutting down the opponent strategy.
|noxus ionia||3|New Decks This Week||18||
||New Fisting Riven||?||Punishing||Combo||
All-in combo deck built around keeping Draven or Riven alive with Survival Skills, and winning with Flurry of Fists + Overwhelm. Mulligan hard for Draven and Survival Skills.
|shurima freljord||3|New Decks This Week||19||
||New Taliyah Thralls||?||Hard||Midrange||
This deck is for all the fans of Landmarks and for those who want to bend the rules of time to fast forward the countdown to your opponent’s doom. Frozen Thrall combined with ways to advance it like Clockwork Curator results in numerous 8/8 Overwhelms that crush your opponent. Taliyah and Promising Future makes use of the Landmark just before the countdown reaches 0 to summon even more 8/8’s.
|demacia targon||3|New Decks This Week||20||
||New Butterfly Fiora||?||Punishing||Combo||
Hard mulligan for either Fiora or Sparklefly, then whichever you draw, buff/protect it to solo win you the game. Almost no deck can beat those cards if you protect them. Play REACTIVE, and pass a LOT. If your opponent could have any combination of cards to threaten your unit, don’t spend under the ability to protect it.
|freljord piltover-zaun||3|New Decks This Week||21||
||New Concurrent Trundle||?||Medium||Midrange||
4LW’s concurrent trundle list from this week’s Fight Night
|demacia shadow-isles||3|New Decks This Week||22||
||New Cithria Matron||?||Medium||Midrange||
A midrange combo deck using Spectral Matron on Cithria, Lady of The Clouds to finish games. Use cheap units to survive early and set up a board with your dragonds. Always plan your Radiant Guardian set up a few turns before.
|noxus shadow-isles||5|Budget Decks (For New Players)||23||
This beginner-friendly aggro deck is for those who enjoy swarming the board with units that end up dealing some deadly direct damage due to their Fearsome keyword. Swarm fast and strong and punchthrough defenses with Fearsome and Overwhelm.
|demacia targon||5|Budget Decks (For New Players)||24||
This beginner-friendly deck plays for high-value units every turn, and controlling exchanges to slowly overwhelm your opponent’s board with your own.
|5|Budget Decks (For New Players)||25||
OK so this deck obviously doesn’t exist yet but I needed to put this here as a reminder to myself to build one next week xd
|Aggro:||End the game fast or use the pressure to force the opponent into awkward plays. Kills Combo before they come online, but weak vs decks that play for slower, defensive value (Midrange & Control).|
|Combo:||Slow deck that prioritizes lategame punchthrough over stall/survival. This usually beats the low pressure Control decks, but without enough defense to survive Aggro.|
|Control:||Slow attrition deck that tries to out-grind, with optional specific finishers. Out-survives Aggro and Midrange decks, but lacks the pressure to beat Combo decks.|
|Midrange:||Flexible deck that plays to survive vs Aggro or plays to presssure vs Control.|
|Tempo:||Pressure. The idea of playing for mana/board efficiency and forcing the opponent to make low value plays due to pressure. The wincondition of fast decks.|
|Value:||Long term value, usually represented by card advantage, or who has more cards. The wincondition of control decks isn't nexus health, but their opponent running out of value (cards).|
|Tips:||Lastly, this isn't just about decks, but handstates. A deck that has mostly slow Control cards can still draw a much faster hand than their Midrange opponent and become the aggressor in that specific game.|
