    Imagine being Darius right now.

    I think they really should rework Darius to do something more interesting.. and fit mroe with his league counterpart.. maybe every time he kills a unit he gets a free attack?(his ult reset mechanic)... dunno Darius feels like a champion that is just really easy to powercreep I think he needs to be more unique to actually be considered a real champion card..

    I am very certain the issue with elites is not the amount of support they get but their bland identity and lack of mechanics.

    This makes them easy to understand and playable at a basic level but in the end we deal with a bunch of semi vanilla units that do not do more than buff each other in cost and stats...

    And let's be real here: having elites viable would not be much different from dragon midrange now would it?

    Not really Elites play differently to Dragons, they affect each other, rather than being invidualy strong, also some of them have scout, dragons don't have scout units.

    The return of bannerman maybe.

    Quite strong ngl, seems like a big poro pay off, reminds me of a hearthstone card that adapted murlocs (gentle dinosaur or something dunno)

    sure different games but also here this statline is not as bad, also "adapts" itself.

    TBH I believe this is enough to make poro decks viable.

    Poros are already viable, they just aren't OP pieces of crap, like the 3-4 strongest decks are. Fabled Poro might just be enough to push it over the edge into actually good. Maybe.

    I'm holding out for them making Iceborn Legacy fast or burst (maybe with a cost increase) - if they do that, Poros will definitely be good.

    If they make Iceborn Legacy a thing again watch out for my pew pew turrets running you over :)

    Iceborn Legacy blade dance POG (hopefully also nerfed)

    Well it's well known Ekko and ZIlean are best buddies.

    They split up the set into 3 so there are some synergies that just didn't came up together.. like azir/irelia,taliyah/maphite and  zilean/ekko.

    They were intended to come up togheter in the beggining but they didn't

    that being said Taliyah's followers still make no sense in their terrible stat lines.

    I think this card is a really good  because it's so flexible, do you want scout? do you want just a cheap unit? do you need value?

    It's discover done right, no rng you know hat you get from this card, all options are viable, in the right situation, and the buff is really important cause it's kind of expensive otherwise.

    Also elite.. will elites hit a critical mass where they are finally viable?

    6 mana slow to deal 4 damage, for the same price for the same mana and speed Targon has a spell that can obliterate both units and landmarks. It's also very clunky since you usually want to use removal on your opponent turn meaning that you won't take advantage of the sand soldiers. 

    Final verdict : Complete garbage 

    that "6 mana card" is actually 8 mana card cause it requires an invoke which costs at least 2 mana from most sources.

    That being said I think this card is not really good mostly cause it's slow speed.

    burst speed 2 2/2s seems interesting card, similar to rising mistBADCARDNAME although much less powerful cause no scalling or fearsome but being able to suddenly have a board without taking an action is powerful.

    Shen got a ship!

    seems like a fun card, and actually viable.

    Nerf to Flash of Brilliance... now you can get this situational card instead of Progress Day!.

    I think it's overcosted, and tries to do too much stuff would be better if it costed like 5 but had no -1 cost.

    we saw cards that are "permanent" at 5 mana (Out Of The Way) and it's too slow to play a set up spell at THAT mana cost.. so at 10?

    the -1 cost reduction though makes it much more viable cause it pays for itself in like 2 turns in terms of mana but setting it up..

    another example is smooth soloist, which lowers costs...lowering costs late game is harder to justify.

    at least PnZ got plenty of card draw.

    Card efficiency is as important as cost efficientcy in aggro since you usually don't run any extra draw effects. 

    Elixir of Wrath might be way more cost efficient yet it is kinda the same case as it is with Decimate and Mystic Shot: Decimate is worse in the cost/effect ratio but it is the finisher of choice for aggro decks because it is more card efficient

    I see, but Mystic Shot is a stample card and Elixir of Wrath is rarely played (As far as I know).

    Also their ratios are much worse Decimate to Mystic Shot is 2* in damage to nexus, and 2.5* in cost

    while this card is *4 in cost and *1.66 in potential, besides Decimate being harder to counter while attack buffs are easier.

    I see your point but I think the power level of this card is much worse.

    Gladly this card seem to not be that good, slow speed is quite a downside, will was only good at 4 mana cause it was fast.

    Elixir of Wrath exists

    you are paying 4 times the mana for +2 attack on a card that rarely sees play in the same region.. why?

    Seems like a card that is missing reputation: costs 1 or something..

    I guess...like getting to masters is a brutally difficult grind. Getting to diamond is easy breezy do it on your phone in your spare time.

    For me the issue is simple I want to play Heimer, and Riven, and Taric and Lux, and Yassao, and all these slow value Champs and you just can't right now and that's not fun as a deck builder.

    I agree, it sucks you can't play old champions when the meta get power crept too much.

    but people are too Doomsayers about the game.. it feels bad that it seems like people really easily just forget that it's a card game and they all have those bad metas, while at least in Riot they won't keep the meta that way for too long since they do have a working balance team(in contrast to Blizzard in mean streets of gadgetzan era).

    I really like the design of the game and the care put into it, I wish more people would play it and there were less "quitters" when things go wrong, I believe that if they return to monthly big balance patches they can make things right again.

    Thanks for the matchup tables I know Azir Irelia looses to aggro. That's why my overwhelm brew did so well against them and got me to diamond. 

    But the thing is what if you dont want to play aggro anymore?

    What if you want to experience the rest of the games champion selection?

    Then you're basically saying okay I am going to loose 70% of the time 1/5 matches.

    So you essentially can't climb effectively.

    That is the definition of a unhealthy and oppressive meta deck

    It should be at least less popular ATM cause it has a "nerfed archtype syndrome" where people will play it less cause it just got nerfed.

    Look at the bright side though it's not Blizzard we are talking about where they had Pirate Warrior around for 6 months and patches unnerfed for 1.5 years.. 3 weeks and it's fixed..

    Dunno why it seems like people playing HS can coup with bigger bullshit than people playing LoR in HS the meta is toxic AF for long period of time and nobody "leaves" but in LoR there are some unhealthy metas and everyone loses their minds, at least you don't get attacked to the face mindlessly and lose every game you miss a 1 drop.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/LegendsOfRuneterra/comments/nr2ckp/we_hear_you_updates_to_live_cards_and_the_future/

    in 3 weeks, 8 July (Riot patchs all their games every 2 weeks on Tuesday nights ) we will be getting a big patch hopefully shifting the meta alongside new cards too..

    Sadly they don't have that big of a team on the game yet (like in league) so they can't do as much as they did before while keeping up the content.

    Also on the bright side according to this post:

    it loses BADLY to aggro.

     

    I dunno I don't play ladder much I am enjoying the new labs content :D

    Looking at champ win rates is pointless most of the time, the only time it matters is when they are at the extremes (really low or really high)

    since many people experiment with said champions.

    For example although Fizz TF was having the highest win rate in the game a few months ago, TF wasn't in the top 5 (can't remember if he even was in the top 10) cause he was played in worse decks.

    Zilean has a low deck building cost (like TF) so his win rate being low is understandable many decks can easily use him, so low performing ones are dragging his win rate down.

    Malphite is hard to justify in a very aggressive meta of EZ/Draven and Irelia/Azir.

    I wouldn't call Irelia Azir tier 0 (not sure if swim did, yet to watch the video) since it has hard counters: scar grounds, Fiora and Dragons.
