Meta Decks Matchup Table and Guides – Guardians of the Ancient Season

This your complete guide to the Ranked ladder meta: all the resources by Agigas - in one place.

This page is intended to serve as your complete guide to the Guardians of the Ancient season meta.

The matchup table below is compiled using the data presented in the RuneterraCCG deck guides. To know how favorable or unfavorable a particular matchup is, find your deck in the 1st column, then choose your opponent in the 1st row. The corresponding table cell will contain the percentage evaluation of your matchup.

The in-depth guides to the decks in the table can be found under the table. Clicking on banners will send you to the corresponding guides. Each guide contains a recommended decklist, tips on how to pilot and mulligan the deck, and detailed explanations of all the deck’s matchups. Most of the guides are written by Agigas, but we will be also featuring recent guides by other writers. These will not necessarily be in full accordance with the matchups table on this page as they may represent a different take on the decks.

The information presented on this page and all the guides by Agigas are kept up-to-date as the meta evolves. Going forward, we will continue writing new guides for other archetypes that were not featured previously and adding them to the series.

The purpose of this page is to include a competitive-oriented guide for every prominent deck in the meta, backed up by in-depth matchup info.

These archetypes remain functional, but either have fallen out of meta or currently remain unpopular. We have excluded them from the table below and no longer update them with the newest decklists and matchup info. However, the guides are still very relevant to use if you want to pick up and learn the deck:
