Legends of Runeterra Patch 2.11 was the biggest meta-shifting patch in Runeterra history, containing an expansion with new collectible cards as well as over 40 balance changes. The metagame of Runeterra is currently in a great place, with lots of deck diversity and no deck that overshadows the rest.

That said, with every metagame comes a few powerful decks that rise to the top. Here are three new decks you should definitely try playing if you're aiming to climb up the ranks in Patch 2.11.

Legends of Runeterra Patch 2.11: 3 Best Decks to Play

1. Leblanc/Sivir Reputation

Sample decklist here. This deck is a midrange deck that aims to play powerful beatdown units with 5+ attack so you can trigger Reputation and level up your champions quickly. You can remove your opponent's units with cards like Bloody Business and keep your own units safe because they have spellshield. Close out games by building a huge board and rallying with Incisive Tactician.

2. Pirate Aggro

Sample decklist here. This deck is an aggressive deck that aims to deal lots of burn damage and win games as fast as possible. Miss Fortune helps you through the early game as she chips away at enemy defenders and the enemy nexus, and Gangplank finishes games with Powder Kegs amplifying his damage.

3. Turbo Thralls

Sample decklist here. This deck's goal is to summon Frozen Thralls, advance their countdowns quickly with cards like Clockwork Curator, and then copy them with Taliyah or Promising Future for a swarm of 8|8 Overwhelm units before your opponent can reasonably deal with them. A leveled up Lissandra on turns 5 or 6 can be quite terrifying indeed.

These are three of the best decks that were not present in the last patch, but keep in mind that previous top-tier decks like Thresh/Nasus or Azir/Irelia are still strong picks. There are lots of viable decks this patch, so consider trying out one of these five new decks that emerged after the expansion. Maybe you'll find a new favorite.
