Card Draw Classification
Card Draw by Region
Thresh Nasus' Golden Age: this deck turned out to be a very aggressive deck because of this idea of working with the slay mechanic and also being aggressive at the same time it created resources, so it hardly ran out of cards even though it was quite aggressive.
15 cards. It is very interesting to see that Ionia has a profile that mixes generic card draw and specific card draw. With specific card draws, we have Deep Meditation which has always had a very strong presence in the Ionia meta decks, and I can recall from memory the glory days of Karma Ezreal and Lee Zoe, both decks that synergize a lot with spells and both included Deep Meditation. Nowadays we have Nami TF Ionia as a powerful spellslinger deck that uses Deep Meditation. With generic card draw, we have the iconic include throughout the history of metas of the famous Shadow Assassin (which already had 2 nerfs). A card that can see a lot of play in Ionian decks similar to Shadow Assassin and that was released recently was Sai'nen Thousand-Tailed.
Piltover & Zaun
24cards that have that effect. As Bilgewater, many times they are generic card draws, being able to be used in any deck as is the case of Time Trick and Aloof Travelers. In Piltover&Zaun we have a mix similar to Bilgewater when it comes to drawing cards with units or spells. However, when the matter is drawing units, many times this is correlated to the discard mechanic, which is the case of Zaunite Urchin, Sump Dredger and Jinx. This is very intriguing, after all the discard deck started out as a Draven Jinx version which quickly ran out of cards, as you had the Piltover&Zaun side which wanted to discard stuff and Noxus offering cards to be discarded, but without many conditions. However, when Sion was released, he brought more cards that ask to be discarded, among them Lost Soul, an infinite value card that always renews itself, and with that Draven Jinx became Draven Sion and started to create a lot of value, drawing a lot of cards as the discard effect was also created. About spells, Progress Day! got more visibility as a versatile card inside Piltovan Tellstones and Statikk Shock was always a card very present in removal decks that played alongside Ezreal, such as Ez Draven and Cait Ez.
