    There are bad matchups, for sure that's the polarizing nature of the meta. But it plays well into catlyn ezreal, into aggro, into midrange. Most of the stuff that people are playing. Then if you find you're quing badly switch to something else.

    It's pretty obvious to me that this is a tech list.

    Really only good into the play scenarios I outlined above.

    As soon as people start playing decks with non-linear styles darkness falls apart.

    But yeah pantheon, Viktor, aggro, just a lot of the easy lists.

    Its obviously a meme, like I built a second deck that  includes Zillian and while having instant acess to 3 mana removal and flocks to offset the incredible mana cost of playing Katarina is nice, it's still not "good"

    Its just better then it used to be and it's fun to Play around with.

    Yep for sure, LOR is becoming a game where brewing is very difficult proposition.

    There's a lot of tech choices and ratio decisions so usually I just assume people will figure out what works for them :)

    This list is legit winning hard 5/5 games.

    People are soooo focused on snowballing they literally have 0 answers for any list that can A answer tempo and B present tempo

    Elites are like Poros secretly op but not really at all.

    If you let Garen level into a Galio that's really your fault lol.

    This deck may be too strong. 

    Played 10 games and only lost 2.

    1 I bricked till mana 5 with 20 spells there's a small chance that might happen

    The other was just the hard counter with catlyn ezreal 3 mana kill your buffed units feels pretty bad.

    But thats still an 80% winrate in Swim numbers.

    Aka not sustainable or realistic in the slightest and more indicative of player skill, and deck placement in meta.

    I was just running this in the mirror against Kindred Viego and it was an easy win.

    Plus the win rate of traditional darkness is minus 50% due to its slow tempo.

    So while many of these flex cards can be changed.

    Darkness aka Viegar plus Kindred is stronger then darkness or Kindred alone.

    Yeah as the list plays now. You either play thaliyah onto salt spire and survive to have those pop and you win. Or you loose before then, either way malphite very seldom gets played at all. Things are just tooooo turbo.

    The answer is pretty obvious, to generate more pings, and it's true playing pack your bags over and over again off tf level up isn't really viable after nerfs.

    You can say the same thing about will of ionia, the only difference here is that dragons rage is a win condition in the non-mirror.

    I have full confidence in all of your abilities to rotate 3 cards. If you're talking about it you're interested in trying it so just do that...

    It was buffed then nerfed, so it's pretty much even at where it was before

    Braum is just a way to delay the game in a list like this, it's not like you're running Vlad and take heart where Braum is a win con.
