New Cards v3.8.0

Over the past week, Riot Games has been revealing all of the cards being added in Worldwalker. Head to one of the galleries below to get the full list of new cards and start building your day 1 decks!

New Mechanics and Keywords

New keyword origin

Worldwalker introduces Runeterran champions. Adding a Runeterran champion to your deck acts as one of your regions, and each Runeterran champion has a unique deckbuilding rule, or Origin, that defines which cards can be played alongside them.

Some Origins also have unique skills that activate during gameplay based on certain conditions.

Legends of Runterra Spawn keyword

Spawn lets you unleash the full power of the sea, summoning a 1|1 Tentacle if you don’t already have one, which then grows based on the number of Spawns listed in a spell or skill. If you have a Tentacle on the board already, it’s granted +X|+X for each Spawn listed. Overwhelm your opponents with massive Tentacles by stacking your deck with Spawns!

Legends of Runterra Boon keyword

Boons are positive effects that are planted on random cards in your own deck, which activate when drawn. Our first Boon, Chimes, grants units in-hand +1|+1 for each activated Chime.

New Challenges, Quests, and AI Decks

New Challenges and Quests have been added to introduce the keywords, archetypes, and champions being added in Worldwalker. Additional AI decks featuring cards added in the expansion have also been added to the Vs. AI opponent pool.
