The ‘Call of the Mountain’ expansion is arriving on Legends of Runeterra on August 26. With that, a new region, Targon would be unlocked in the game. We have previously discussed all the Targon cards released in LoR so far. In this article, we will be listing all Call of the Mountain cards released so far in Legends of Runeterra that are not from Targon. We will also give a small review on each card.
Non-Targon cards in Call of the Mountain
We’ll discuss all the non-Targon cards region-wise.
The newest champion for Ionia. She’s the third support champion in Legends of Runeterra, after Taric and Shen. Her support ability sets a unit’s stats to 4/4 for that round. It’s similar to Suit Up!
Her level 2 form gains +1/+1 (the standard) and now she sets units to 5/5. In addition she generates a Fleeting Help, Pix! card each round start. Help Pix! is a burst speed spell but with the same text as Gem. ”Can’t be cast in combat or response to a spell.”
Lulu is looking like a powerful card. She can use her Support ability to aid fragile allies like Flower Child, Young Witch, and even Tasty Fae folk. And Help, Pix! can be used offensively and defensively.
Now, this is a scary card! For 4 mana, at burst speed, you Silence and reduce a follower’s stats to a 1/1. We feel a little hesitation in saying this is a meta-defining card. Legends of Runeterra doesn’t have much in the way of silence, but this is more than just silence – it sets a unit to a 1/1.
Imagine using this on Grizzled Ranger and then using a simple ping effect. Or using this on a big unit or on They Who Endure as your opponent goes for an Atrocity finish. Lots of uses for this card – as innocent as it looks.
Interestingly, Pix is getting its own card. Another unit with Support, but we’re not so sure about the viability of this card. It’s a 1 mana 0/1, and unlike Young Witch, he doesn’t have elusive to protect him. So more often than not, he’ll simply die for free.
However, you could consider using this card with Lulu herself. Not only is it in flavor, but she would bring his stats from 0/1 to 4/4 or 5/5 if Lulu is leveled up.
Very similar to Greenglade Caretaker, and you could argue weaker. However, both cards are meant for different archetypes, so comparing them isn’t really fair. Flower Child can be a big threat with the right support (pun entirely intended).
People are definitely going to sleep on this one! While its stats are lower than Legion Drummer, she has elusive and gives an additional attack. Young Witch basically creates a scenario where the opponent needs to choose whether to get rid of her or target the bigger threat.
And even if the opponent removes her, you’d be happy if they wasted their Vile Feast or Mystic Shot on this card.
A 3 mana 4/2 with Lifesteal is incredible! It’s essentially a better Deadbloom Wanderer. While this card would be insane in other regions, it’s still a great card.
This is an interesting card. It’s a follower with Support that also benefits from being Supported. Sad to say, but this card doesn’t look very viable. It requires you to have two other units on the board to get his full potential. Furthermore, it’s in the 4 mana spot, which is a competitive spot. It could potentially be used as an aggressive card but it’s uncertain.
Another powerful follower. The ability to grant elusive (as in permanent) is quite strong, especially since it’s on a 3/3 body. This card might have some trouble being slotted into decks because it competes for the 4 mana spot, which is a competitive spot currently in the game. We do think this card has a lot of potential. Combine this with Swole Squirrel and things get scary!
We saved the best for last! The one and only Swole Squirrel! Memes aside, we don’t think this card is as bad as most people think. This card actually has a lot of synergy with other cards, such as Dragon’s Rage, Concerted Strike, and being supported by the new Support units. Or you could give it Elusive and go crazy. It might not be a competitive card, but it’s a viable meme card for sure. But who knows, it may be more than that. Never underestimate Swole Squirrel!
We’ll continue to update this article with further non-Targon cards as they are revealed for the Legends of Runeterra Call of the Mountain expansion, so stay tuned!
