5 Top Legends of Runeterra Decks for Ranked

Hey guys NicMakesPlays here, today I’m going to go over what I think are the best decks for ranked in Legends of Runeterra.

I’m going to say what I think the best 5 decks for ladder are, summarize the decks, and their winning and losing matchups.

These decks have the best matchup spreads in the game, have had huge success this season, and are amazing from Bronze to high Masters.

1. Zoe Lee Sin

Zoe Lee Sin (LoR Deck)


[See Zoe Lee Sin deck details]

Lee Sin is one of the strongest decks in the game right now.

It usually occupies the space of Rank 1 and many top 10 slots in multiple regions.

Overall, the deck has access to spells such as Deny, Nopeify!, Hush, and Concussive Palm to have answers to many different scenarios while setting up Lee Sin to kill the opponent in one turn.

Deny (LoR card)Hush (LoR card)

You can use Zenith Blade on leveled up Lee Sin, buff him to 10 attack, and deal 20 damage with his Dragon Rage Skill + Overwhelm.

Lee Sin’s Barrier + Deny make this deck really hard to deal with for many matchups. He has amazing matchups against most of the field and only loses to Tahm Soraka.
