Legends of Runeterra

Chronicler of Ruin, a unit of the Shadow Isles that, because it is versatile, can perform several functions within the same deck: drawing, copying, summoning units and some other surprises!
somesynergies that I think are most important and interesting, limited to
current expansionof the game: Rising Tides. Chronicler of Ruin is a common rarity card, costing 4 mana, with 3 attack points, 3 resistance points and a skill that makes it unique
"Play: Kill an ally, then revive it". Because it costs 4 mana, its 3/3 stats are slightly below average, but are compensated for its ability. With a cost of 4 manas, we have as main
cost competitors: Champions:
Twisted Fate. Units:
Chump Whump. Spells:
Will of Ionia,
Chronicler of Ruinis reset (damage, buffs and debuffs will be removed (silence, vulnerable also). - Because it has a unique skill in the game (for now), it does not have
role competitors. The closest effects are the
Returnspells, which have their limitations, but are able to reactivate summoning effects on cards with a cost of up to 3 mana. Its defect is being dependent on other cards to perform your function, while even without them the
Chronicler of Ruinhas the value of a 3/3 unit on the battlefield.
COMBOS!Because it is versatile and reactivates the effect of other cards, the Chronicler can make several interesting synergies during the game. Here the cards will be grouped by their synergy functions:
Card advantage(Will create a card in your hand) -
Scribe of Sorrows: Creates an ally who died in the match. -
Commander Ledros: Creates a
Commander Ledrosin your hand and resets the one that is on the battlefield. -

For Demacia!in your hand. -
Jaull Hunters: Creates a random sea monster. -

Back Alley Barkeepsummoned.
Summoning unitsWhen using
Chronicler of Ruinto summon units, be careful with the limit of 6 units on the battlefield, only use if you have up to 4 units.
Chronicler of Ruinwill be reset. Units that summon with the Last Breath effect will still perform another summon upon dying again! -

Mistwraithand gives +1/+0 to the Mistwraiths. -
The Rekindler: Summons the strongest champion who died. -

Copying UnitsWhen using
Chronicler of Ruinto copy units, be careful with the limit of 6 units in the field, only use if you have up to 4 units in the field. Remember that the unit targeted by the Ruin Chronicler will be reset. -
The Undying: We will have an undying 2/2 in the current round, and at the beginning of the next round an undying X+1/X+1 will be summoned (depends on the current power of the target undying). -
Shark Chariot: In the next ephemeral attack, you will summon two
Shark Chariot. -
Mist's Call(If the only unit that died in the round was the victim of the Chronicler,
Mist's Callwill revive that unit for sure!). -
Splinter Soul: When the
Chronicler of Ruintargets the ephemeral copy, the "Blink" effect will remove the ephemeral from a unit that does not normally have it, resulting in a copy on the battlefield.
Drawing cardsIn the card advantage category, cards are created in your hand. The cards below draw cards from your deck (similar, but different), here the draws are limited to your deck list and are considered for draw counts and the card count in your deck. -
Shadow Assassin: Draw a card. -
Zaunite Urchin: Draw a card. -
Avarosan Sentry: Draw a card. -
Vanguard Redeemer: Draw a unit. -

Other synergiesHere I bring some honorable mentions, synergies that are not always focused, but may unusually bring an advantage to the match. -
Mistwraith: Grants + 1 / + 0 to the Mistwraiths globally. -
Legion Grenadier: Deals 2 damage to the enemy nexus. -
Radiant Guardian: In addition to resetting the damage received, she will return with tough and lifesteal. -
Tianna Crownguard: You rally. PS.: Tianna is a win condition for a deck, if the game does not end in the round it enters, it is possible to execute up to 3 consecutive attacks with this combo. Ex.: Summon Tianna on the opponent's turn and attack, when passing the turn perform your normal attack, summon
Chronicler of the Ruinand rally again. -
Maokai: Count 1 die for them to level-up. - Spiders: reactivates the effects of
Arachnoid Host. -

Legion Marauder. - Ephemeral decks:
Maokai. - Decks of undying units without champions.
