There are two champions currently dominating the League of Legends meta in the bottom and mid lane, and they are Ezreal and Twisted Fate respectively. Now, why don’t we take this deadly duo to Riot’s collectible card game and see how they work together. The Legends of Runeterra Ezreal Twisted Fate deck combines the Bilgewater and Piltover & Zaun regions to take advantage of the plethora of spells present in each.
Both of them complement each other’s playstyles, and although their leveling up requirements are relatively different, you will laways find yourself with at least a level two from one of them.
What are Ezreal and Twisted Fate all about in Legends of Runeterra?
Ezreal levels up upon targetting 8 or more enemies with spells. On the other hand, Twisted Fate requires you to draw more than 8 cards while he is on board. The synergy between the Bilgewater and Piltover & Zaun regions allow for our Legends of Runeterra Ezreal Twisted Fate deck to shine.
Cards like Statikk Shock and Make It Rain can target up to five enemies alone, enabling more than half of Ezreal’s level up requirement. In addition to that, other cards in the deck, such as Yordle Grifter, can give you easy access to zero cost Warning Shot. If you have an upgraded Ezreal on board and a Warning Shot in hand, it enables you to chip off an instant three damage off your enemy’s nexus.
The Legends of Runeterra Ezreal Twisted Fate deck is extremely fun to play, but your win conditions are limited and there is relatively optimal draw sequences to allow you to play the deck to its full potential.
In terms of one-drops, Jagged Butcher is in a league of his own. If you manage to get a Plunder with a Warning Shot on round 1 or 2 and then play him, you have extremely good value for a one-mana drop with buffed 3-attack and 3-health stats.
However, don’t shy away from playing him on round 1 as a 2-2 with his base stats, as he is still one of the best one-mana units in Legends of Runeterra, with Omen Hawk the only unit that comes to mind as an automatic round 1 play.
Upon summoning Yordle Grifter, you get a Warning Shot to keep in hand. That’s not all the value you get out of this little guy, since if you have a Bilgewater card sitting on the top of your deck, it triggers his Allegiance passive and lets you draw a card from the enemy’s deck.
Yordle Grifter draws a card from the top of your opponent’s deck, taking advantage of any minion buffs they used. All these effects are for a mere 4-mana cost unit with a solid 3-attack and 3-health stats that can stand its ground.
Riptide Rex is considered the MVP of our Legends of Runeterra Ezreal Twisted Fate deck, just like Puffcap Peddler for our earlier Teemo Sejuani combination. Once you hit the opponent’s nexus during the round and you have 8-mana to play Riptide Rex, don’t think twice.
Plunder is necessary to trigger its Cannon Barrage effect 7 times, and it is devastating to say the least. This deals 2 damage to any unit on the enemy’s board, and if it is dead or gone, then you hit their nexus for 1 damage instead. This means you have the ability to do a total of 14 damage to your opponent’s units and even take out some beefy champions.
Good Ezreal / Twisted Fate match-ups
Sejuani / Miss Fortune, Sejuani / Vlad or Swain, Burn Aggro and Deep are all fairly good match-ups if you play your cards right. Your mulligan is always consistent for all of them, as you would always want to look for Chempunk Pickpocket, any other 2- or 3-drop, and Twisted Fate.
Your gameplan is almost the same for all four of these matchups. You would always want to look towards saving a few of your removal cards to clear out your opponent’s early game, and take advantage of your strong board. Every one of these decks has a number of key cards, so identify them and play around them when you can.
Unfortunately, the Legends of Runeterra Ezreal Twisted Fate deck doesn’t really feature much late game threats outside of Riptide Rex.
Bad Ezreal / Twisted Fate match-ups
Demacia Bannermen, Yasuo and Ionia decks in general, and Heimer / Vi are incredibly tough match-ups each for their own reason. Heimer can generate insane value and continuously deal with any threats you might have. On the other hand, Demacia’s Bannermen deck is still really strong, and their mid to late game threats are far superior. Cithria the Bold specifically is the threat here since we have a low number of units with 3 or more attack to block with in this case.
Last but not least, Yasuo and Ionia decks have enough spells to keep them going and the champion’s passive to deal 2 damage to any stunned or recalled unit. This can easily take out several units and even champions in our deck, and it is difficult to keep him and his allies at bay.
The Legends of Runeterra Ezreal Twisted Fate deck costs 28,100 shards to craft from scratch. Considering we are well into the Season of Fortune and these cards have been around for a while now since the Season of Plunder kicked off in April, you won’t struggle to find most of them already in your deck.
This is an incredibly fun deck to play and wining with it is extremely satisfying. Once you figure out your strengths and weaknesses, you will climb the ranked ladder with ease.
