Patch 9.24 Top Comps - Early Meta Snapshot
Updated 1 month ago | Posted 3 months ago
This is an early meta snapshot for patch 9.24. Keep in mind that it's still very early on in this patch and things can change quickly. Nevertheless, hopefully this update can help you hit the ground running.

Meta TLDR
  • Are Rangers back?!
  • With the right items on Senna and Lucian, Soulbound is a very strong synergy. The Soulbound Summoner Shadows comp is one of the stronger comps in the patch so far.
  • With Phantom Dancer nerfed, assassins are much stronger. This is especially true for Kha'Zix, who deals critical strikes when he ults. The PD nerf also makes the Blender comp much stronger.
  • Summoner Sins remains a strong comp since the patch barely affected the comp's units.
  • Predators remains a strong comp as well. The nerf to Singed weakens it's win condition a little bit but the comp is still viable.
  • The Egg Roll comp from last patch is basically dead with the nerfs to Renekton, Ivern, and Maokai.
  • I haven't tried Amumu yet so expect a quick update to this meta snapshot soon.
Shadow Crystal Rangers
Rangers were buffed this patch (2 Rangers 2x attack speed bonus chance increased from 30% to 35% and 4 Rangers 2x attack speed bonus chance increased from 65% to 80%). Senna synergizes well with the Rangers by buffing their auto-attacks. A Morello's on Senna makes her buff even stronger. Taric was also buffed this patch, having lower total mana so he casts earlier. Try not to play this comp on a Cloud map. Build a Sword Breaker if other players in the lobby are running the Blender comp. This is a hot new comp off the presses that's played a lot in EUW right now (e.g. see GingGG).

Soulbound Summoner Shadow
Powerful comp that utilizes the new Soulbound mechanic. Stack defensive items (especially GA) on Senna so that she can keep Lucian alive as long as possible. Stack offensive items on Lucian so that he can deal as much damage as possible. A good defensive item on Lucian is Trap Claw, which prevents him from getting stunned out of his ult. The comp uses Annie and Yorick, which are both OP summoners. TY MASHY FOR SUGGESTING.
Blender
The Blender comp is a lot stronger this patch since Phantom Dancer was nerfed. In this comp you really need to get a Blademaster item on Nocturne. Don't try to transition to the comp too early as its units are generally weak in the early game. The comp only powerspikes when you have Sivir 2 and Nocturne 2 with the right items. Keep stronger early game units (e.g. Woodlands) to stay healthy during the early and mid game before transitioning. Try to get Nocturne 3 or Sivir 3 if possible. This is one of the strongest comps in the game.

Berzerker Electric
With the buff to Berzerkers and Electric, this comp is a lot stronger. It also counters the Blender comp since Olaf's glacial procs can shut down Nocturne. The Electric trait was buffed in Patch 9.24 and is much stronger in the early game, dealing 100 damage each proc instead of 70. Use Electric early to stay healthy or winstreak. Zed 2 with good items is your win condition.
Summoner Sins
A really strong comp from last patch that's very popular among high elo players. The new patch changed very few of the comp's units, making it still viable. Start with Thresh and Nautilus as frontline with good synergies (Ocean and Warden). When you get a Nami, sell Thresh for Nami. Nami is OP. Kha'Zix is a lot stronger now that Phantom Dancer is nerfed. Qiyana was untouched this patch and is one of the strongest 3-cost units in the game.

Predator Poison Berzerker
The classic Predator Poison Berzerker comp. It's still viable as the new patch changed very few of the comp's units. Your win conditions are a level 2 Olaf with good items and a Singed 2 with Morello's. At level 9, you can tech in Mystics or Wardens or Crystals depending on the match up. I wrote a guide for this comp.
Predator Poison Crystal
Another variant of the Predators comp. The strength in this comp comes from the extra tankiness from the Crystal synergy (Skarner and Ashe). A Skarner with Ionic Spark / Thornmail / Warmog's can survive for a long time and kill many units with the Predator trait. It's especially strong if you 3-star Skarner. Ashe and Twitch are not highly contested units so this comp might be easier to get online than the Berzerkers variant. I wrote a guide for this comp.
Predator Poison Sins
Another variant of the Predators comp. A 2-star Qiyana is very strong in the mid-game. Kha'Zix is much stronger this patch as the nerf to Phantom Dancer allows him to still do damage when ulting a unit with PD (before, his ult would do 0 damage). I wrote a guide for this comp.
