LoR: Best Budget Decks For New Players. If you’re new to Legends of Runeterra, it’s probably safe to say you don’t have many cards. While there are quick ways to increase your card number, you’re still going to need time to acquire all the decks you want.

That said, there’s a few brilliant LoR budget decks for new players, who want control without the grind of a long-term unique deck. Thanks as always to Dawnstor and his Grand Master status for helping us out, as well as Mobalytics and Runterrafire for their amazing deck tools.

Budget Aggro (Noxus & Piltover & Zaun)


Budget Control (Shadow Isles & Freljord)


The first deck is a brilliant control deck on a budget. Utilising Shadow Isles and Freljord, it’s easy to grab and win with. There’s a few variables to it, such as dropping Braum and adding another Tyrndamere. That said, it’s a solid go-to that works really well in just about any situation.

Budget Elites (Demacia & Ionia)


The second deck is all about Elite units and quickly flooding the board. Elite units for Demacia are undoubtedly strong, easy to obtain, and play well against most decks. This Budget Elite deck, first designed by Swim, is a safe bet in our LoR: Best Budget Decks For New Players guide.

Budget Barrier (Demacia + Ionia)


Originally created by Hewitt Benson (we think!), Barrier Fiora has been around forever. It comes in lots of different forms, but it’s super easy to obtain and will take you pretty far regardless of who you’re up against. It’s easy to play, withstands plenty of early rush from Noxus or Bilgewater, and has a good mid-match tempo.
