Note – the card updates below were previously applied in a hotfix; no additional updates

Since the launch of Beyond the Bandlewood, we’re seeing an incredible amount of variety types
of decks people are playing. That is awesome, and we’re thrilled to see it!
That said, decks like Sivir/Akshan and Azir/Irelia were still creating sharp match-ups, often
acting as a barrier to entry for other decks to be considered competitive, even with a new
expansion to compete with. So, we end up with decks that either must be faster (aggro) or able
to execute their plan more efficiently (combo) in order to be considered viable.
We did see some changes to the meta deck lineup that challenged top performers, like
Sion/Draven vs. Sivir/Akshan, but after digging into the data, it was clear this was also a
polarizing match-up and not a permanent solution. We’ll always do our best to prioritize
long-term solutions that emphasize moment-to-moment gameplay vs. sharp rock, paper,
