Game plan
Early Game

Simple enough, use Yordles and a unit like Blitzcrank to pair with Ziggs for Scrap and Poppy for Bodyguard.

Mid Game

Start looking to add in more Arcanists, and move your tank and carry items to Poppy and Malzahar respectively.

Additional comp tips
  • Before using units like Jinx and Silco, you can look for strong Enchanter units like Morgana or Lulu in the meantime.
