Deck Tech: Kennen Ezreal - A lot of burn for just a bit of mana
The Ezreal Kennen deck is for those who love to get their opponents off guard and deal a lot of direct Nexus damage, at burst speed and for just a bit of mana!Edit Article
About the Deck
Ionia. Ezreal, at level 2, has the power to end games very quickly, his ability is to deal 1 damage to the enemy nexus for each spell played. In case the spell targets an enemy, you deal 2 damage. Usually Ezreal is removed the second he drops on board, but in Ionia you find many protections. Kennen works nicely with Ezreal, because besides having a low cost, he creates a Mark of the Storm, a 0 cost spell, quick, which targets an enemy, a perfect card for our main character.
Why play Kennen Ezreal?
General View of the Deck
Concussive Palm and HomecomingAll you need in this list is tempo, so there isn't any way better to do that except bouncing back a big gun to the opponent's hand or stunning an enemy unit and still get a good blocker.
Initial Hand and Game Style
LurkLurk is a list that needs to be constantly attacking. You can focus all your efforts on Kennen and Eye of the Dragon, this way you get good blockers, healing and stuns to stop some important attacks - as in attacks from overwhelm units, or Rek'sai's . Another very important thing is to always keep a Deny in hand to stop Pyke's spell, which is, honestly, one of the best removals in the game. By denying this spell, you prevent this champion's level up, take from your opponent a unit development and still protect your unit. STONKS!
Aggro in GeneralYou take advantage of Eye of the Dragon and small units to help you defend yourself in the beginning, the late game is always yours, so don't spare your resources when it's time to defend yourself from Aggros. With future draws, it gets easier to recover from the game's initial rounds.
DeepA list that is coming back into the meta, suffers very much against Ezreal and Kennen. Deep's removals are all very expensive, the deck needs to get Nautilus down on board and a Homecoming ends this champion's dreams. Let's just say it is basically a race of who gets to their strategy first, but you can sabotage your opponent's plans very efficiently, making this matchup quite easy!
Taliyah ZiggsThough it isn't Demacia, it is a list which can make a lot of plays that make you FLY in tempo. Ziggs alone is already a 3 mana which at level 2 has 4 power and 5 health, it is way too much! This list doesn't care about not attacking in one or two turns, but at the moment it does, it can strike you down with one hit. Eventually you run out of stuns.
Aphelios FizzMore known as the shimmer deck, this list doesn't stop creating more and more offensives. A lot of pressure comes down early on board without it being behind on value because of the faes. It gets really complicated to deal with all this aggression.
