Meta Snapshot Summary

Added many different compositions that sprung up because of patch 10.7.  The best composition by far is Mech Pilots, followed by Cybernetics.  Items are all about countering.  Zephyr is strong against Mech, so if you play Mech, build Quicksilver.

S: Mech Infiltrator, Cybernetics
A: Dark Star Sniper, Blaster Brawler, Vanguard Sniper
B: Kayle + Friends, Protector Mystic
C: Mech and Friends, Vanguard Mystic, Rebels, Protector Infiltrator
Meme: Star Guardian Sorcerer, Mech Sorcerer, Space Pirates, Void Brawler

Items

Methodology

TFT Compositions Tier List

S Tier: Highly Flexible or Very Strong

Mech Pilot Infiltrator


Best composition right now and easy to play. Any defensive item is good on the Mech. Itemize Rumble or Annie, depending on who you get to 3*. Slow roll at 6 for 3 star 2/3 cost units, then all in at 7 to add in Valkyrie or Sorcerer. Go 8 to add both.

Difficulty: Low
Item Dependency: Medium
Variance: Low

Requirements:

  • Shaco 3*
  • Some 3* Mechs
  • Shaco Items
  • Mech Items

 

Shaco with two BF items and a defensive item is very strong.  You only really need level 7.  Slow roll at level 6 for Shaco, Mechs, Kaisa.  Kaisa is not that important (both item wise and 3* wise), but it is nice if you can get them for her.

Counters:

  • Two Zephyrs.  One on Mech, one on a carry

Cybernetic

Cybernetic Meta Snapshot Teamfight Tactics 10.6
Interesting composition. Makes great use of leftover items for Fiora, Leona, and Vi. Irelia is the main carry and then Ekko can use leftover items as well. Lucian is great for early game carrying.

Difficulty: Hard
Item Dependency: Medium
Variance: Medium

Requirements:

  • Infinity Edge for Irelia
  • Ekko or transition into a 3 Cyber build (you need to know what you are doing)

 

Cybernetics benefit from having at least 1 item, so it’s great to diversify your team with this build.  Lucian is a great early game carry and then you can transition into Irelia and Ekko.  Lucian can use Red Buff or Luden’s.  An early Lucian with Red Buff or Luden’s is a sign to consider Cybernetics.  This composition is great for getting 2nd or 3rd place.  If you do not hit Ekko, you will need to play some sort of Blademaster/3 Cybernetic composition.

Counters:

  • Jhin Vanguards

A Tier: Solid Team Comps. Weaker, less flexible, requires more luck than S-Tier

Dark Star Snipers


Dark Star Snipers
Decent composition that got buffed by the Dark Star changes. It is nice to play because you do not NEED any 3* units or a 2* legendary to do well.

Difficulty: Medium
Item Dependency: Medium
Variance: Low

Great build if you get early Jhin.  He can use almost any Attack Damage Item.  Last Whisper is pretty strong as well.  You can itemize Shaco as your secondary carry with Ashe and Lux as a support.  You don’t need to 3* anything, but it is still nice to get Shaco 3* if you can.  You can also use Dark Star spatula, which makes 6 Dark Star easy to hit.

Counters:

  • Vanguard Snipers
  • Disarm on Blasters (it is essentially a stun against Shaco and Jhin)

Blaster Brawler


Blaster Brawler 10.7 TFT
Decent composition. You need great items for Jinx and a Red Buff on any blaster (could be Jinx as well). Hard to hit this composition since you will need 4 specific Brawlers, but there is also a 2 Brawler variant.

Difficulty: Medium
Item Dependency: Medium
Variance: Medium

Keep Blitzcrank next to Jinx to let her get a quick kill.  Rebel spatula is useful to get to 3 Rebel.

Counters:

  • Red Buff/Morello to kill front line
  • Infiltrators to kill Jinx

Vanguard Sniper


TFT Tier List Vanguard Sniper
Be careful of Blitz/Infiltrators

Difficulty: High
Item Dependency: High
Variance: High

Requirements:

  • Jhin 2* and great items
  • Perfect Item Mordekaiser
  • Level 3 Mordekaiser

Dark Star complements each carry very well in this composition.  Mordekaiser is unkillable and Jhin deals a lot of damage.

Good on Neekoverse

Counters:

  • Infiltrators to kill Jhin
  • CC for Mordekaiser if he is 3* so he can’t shield himself
  • Zephyr + Blitz combo

B Tier: Playable, but not Preferred. Comps could also be untested.

Kayle + Friends


4 Chrono Blademaster

Difficulty: High
Item Dependency: Medium
Variance: Low

Requirements:

  • Kayle Items

 

Flexible composition due to 6 unit core.  You can add in either anything you hit or anything that is good against your lobby.  You can also drop down to 2 Chrono and add 4 Brawler.

Protector Mystic


Hyper Roll Protectors Set 3
Insanely strong composition with correct items in current meta.

Difficulty: Medium
Item Dependency: High
Variance: High

Requirements:

  • 3 items for Xin and Rakan
  • 3 Star Xin and Rakan
  • Level 8 for Lulu for 4 Mystic

 

Xin and Rakan 2 vs 9 every game.  You really need dragon claw on at least one of them with 1 damage item (Morello, Ionic Spark, or Titan’s Resolve).

Shojin is incredibly good for multiple Rakan ultimates.  Bramble Vest counters every attack damage dealer without Last Whisper.

Sona uses Seraph’s Embrace very well.  Sona is critical because she removes anti healing debuffs.

C Tier and Below: These are compositions that are weak, but if they are given to you, you might be forced to play them.

Mech and Friends


Mech Infiltrators Sorcerer 10.6
Consistent Mech composition. Can go for 3 stars or level 8. Popular with Rank 1 NA

Difficulty: Low
Item Dependency: Medium
Variance: Low

This is a great top 4 build.  You can either go for 3 stars on Mechs, Kaisa, and Shaco OR go level 8 to play Gangplank, Lux, and Kayle.  You only need to itemize your Mech and one of the Infiltrators

Vanguard Mystic


Vanguard Mystic teamfight tactics set 3 meta comps best
Fun composition with unkillable Jayce and Mordekaiser

Difficulty: Medium
Item Dependency: High
Variance: High

Requirements:

  • Perfect Item Mordekaiser and Jayce
  • Level 3 Mordekaiser and Jayce

 

Slow roll at level 5 for Mordekaiser and level 7 for Jayce to get them to level 3.  You still need level 8 for finding 4 Mystic, so this composition can feel inconsistent.  Run space pirates + 4 Vangaurd until you can get to 4 Mystic

Rebels


Rebels Tier List Meta Snapshot TFT
Nerfed very hard in 10.7. It can still win if uncontested, but it is significantly worse than before

Difficulty: Medium
Item Dependency: High
Variance: High

Rebels utilize their shield and damage buff to strengthen each other.  It is reliant on having Aurelion Sol and strong items.  Add in Mystics if you are against magic damage.

Protector Infiltrator


Hyper Roll Protectors Set 3
Not as strong as I initially thought, but still a decent composition

Difficulty: Medium
Item Dependency: High
Variance: High

Requirements:

  • 3 Star Kaisa, Shaco, Xin, and Rakan

You do not need level 8, this is fine to run at 6 people to ensure everyone is 3 star.

Base composition is 4 Protectors and Kaisa and Shaco, the rest of the slots are up to you.  You want 3* of all your protectors along with Kaisa and Shaco.

Meme Tier – The real winners are those who have fun. This is a GAME after all, and if you are reading this, you are probably not one of the top 3 players trying to go pro. These oddball compositions may or may not work. Use at your own risk, but you will have fun.
Meme tier comps might be stronger than C tier.

Star Guardian Sorcerers


Star Guardian Sorcerer
Do not try this at home. Some Korean players play this, but that’s about it.

Difficulty: N/A
Item Dependency: High
Variance: N/A

Requirements:

  • 3 Star Syndra
  • Star Guardian Spatula

There has not been success with Sorcerers yet.  

Mech Pilot Sorcerers


Mech Sorcerer TFT Tier List
Some top Korean players are playing this. As of writing, none of the top 5 in NA/EU are playing this consistently. Try at your own risk.

Difficulty: N/A
Item Dependency: High
Variance: N/A

Requirements:

  • 3 Star Syndra
  • Hitting Mechs early

4 Space Pirates


Space Pirate Teamfight Tactics Tier List
Very fun build, but got nerfed in 10.7. Tons of extra items to throw on your units

Difficulty: Medium
Item Dependency: High
Variance: High

Requirements:

  • Guardian Angel GP
  • Lots of AP for GP
  • Hitting GP
  • Hitting Mechs

 

GP and Mechs are the only thing that matter.  Use Thresh and your extra gold/items to cheese late game fights.

Void Brawler (TBD)

Items

Carousel Item Priority

Higher Priority Items

Lower Priority Items

High>>>Low


Carousel Set 3 Teamfight Tactics 10.7
Guardian Angel is the most important item. Swords build items for Infiltrator, Blaster, Blademaster–pretty much everything that is good.

Lilac Nebula – 4 Cost Carousel Priority

You need BOTH a good champion and an at least decent item component FOR THAT CHAMPION.  For example, Irelia (good champion) with a Sword (good item for her) would be ideal, but Irelia with a Chain Vest (decent item) would be very good as well.  A champion with a bad item for them is useless.  In these cases, sell the champion (Velkoz with Bow for example).  
With this in mind, I am just going to list out good champions and bad champions.  The items that are good for these champions can be found in the composition Tier List.

Good

Bad

Very nice champions are Irelia, Jinx, Kayle, Jhin. OK champions are Cho’Gath, Vel’Koz, and Fizz. Bad champions are Soraka and Wukong. This priority does not matter if their item is not usable.

Item Quadrant

The closer to the Top Right, the better and more versatile the item is. Avoid items on Bottom Left if possible.

Strength (y-axis) is based on how effective an item is in the situations where it is most used.  Items that are strong at all stages of the game are listed higher.

Versatility (x-axis) is based on both the number of Compositions an item fits in and Champions an item is used on.  Versatility is also how often you could build an item.

Item Tier list patch 10.7 teamfight tactics
Guardian Angel is the best item. It is great on both tanks and carries. Mech Pilots use it very well. Carries can still do things if they get 1 shot by Shaco. Zephyr is must build if people are going Mechs. If you play Mechs, you need Quicksilver if people have Zephyr.

Methodology

Even though I was Challenger in Set 1 and Grandmaster in Set 2, I know there are many players better than me.  This is why I scout the Top 10 players in all major regions and analyze what they play and how they play each composition to make this Tier List.  Tiers are determined by what I think will get you the highest average rank.  This means that while one composition might be super strong late game, it may be difficult to acquire, so it may not be S-Tier.  For example, it is difficult to win with certain compositions, but extremely easy to Top 4.  Rankings within a tier are very close together.  Always try to play with what makes sense for every game, and adapt to your lobbies with proper tech choices.

DifficultyItem Dependency, and Variance are listed.  Difficulty is how hard the composition is to play.  Difficulty does not factor into the strength or viability of the composition but serves as a factor for new players.  Item dependency is how important specific items are to the composition.  Variance is the approximate placement range of the composition.  For example, a consistent Top 4 composition has low variance.  A composition that either places 1st or 8th has a high variance. If I mention that a composition is Forcible, it means that you can play this comp every game.

Tier placement assumes strong play.  Refer to Difficulty metric before attempting to play.

  1. thanks for the info! you are the only one reporting the meta as it is i feel like other sites are a bit manipulative with the comps they have as the strongest..do you agree? Looking forward for your next informative video guide!

    • I agree. Some people overrate certain compositions on purpose so that viewers will say to themselves “wow I knew that comp was good!” when in reality none of the strong players play it.
