Yordles are an incredibly easy build that works great in most Ranked games because not many players build Sorcerers at the moment (especially in low ELO such as Iron, Bronze and Silver). If you pick Yordles as your main team comp you’ll boost ranks relatively quickly as top 3 is a consistent placement for Yordle builds in low elo games. Yordles were slightly buffed in 9.17 which is additional icing on the cake as they were already performing quite well in the previous patch. The base units of the build are: Tristana, Lulu, Poppy, Veigar, Kennen and Gnar.
Expanding your team with Aurelion Sol and Shyvana grants you two magic immune units and the (3) Sorcerer buff which can come in handy. Lastly, Swain is there as the 9th unit for (3) Shapeshifters which will make Gnar much harder to kill. If you can upgrade Swain to level 2 he becomes a very strong unit which can basically 1v4 so take that into account when you re-roll for units and always buy him.
The below rank boost in tft Yordle build is viable in both the current live patch and PBE, though if you prefer going for Yordle Elementalists instead (or need some guidance on how to build Yordles) make sure to check out our Yordle Team Comp guide.
Sorcerers haven’t been popular lately as Morgana and Lulu got a slight nerf in the latest patch. That considered, the Sorcerer build is still very strong because it counters a wide variety of builds. A thing to note is that Sorcerers are hard to play and require a bit of skill, they will absolutely crush enemies in lower elo where placement doesn’t matter much but in high Plat and Diamond games you’d probably want to pick another build.
The base of the Sorcerer team comp are: Ahri, Lulu, Morgana, Veigar, Aurelion Sol and Karthus. Shyvana, Mordekaiser and Gnar will provide the much needed front-line, as well as (2) Phantom, (2) Dragon and (3) Yordle buffs.

Brawlers (with Void and Ranger)
As of 9.17, Brawlers have been gaining traction because of the recently added (6) Brawler bonus which makes your units very tanky. The high amount of health, along with a few defensive items on your units and Statikk Shiv on Volibear will make you decimate any opponent you play against. Overall, a very easy and fun build to play with a good learning curve as you keep improving the Blitzcrank positioning to counter enemy carries. The base of this team are: Warwick, Blitzcrank, Reksai, Volibear, Vi and Cho’Gath. The 7th unit is obviously Kha’Zix for the reworked Void bonus (Void units deal true damage now) and the last two units are Ashe & Kindred for the (2) Glacial and (2) Ranger bonus.

have been the meta for quite some time now, and for a good reason. Volibear, Sejuani, Anivia and Ashe are very good units that are high tier in the current patch. I’ve got an account from Iron to Diamond just by playing Glacials and I just love their playstyle and seeing them freeze all enemy units. The core units of the Glacials are: Braum, Lissandra, Ashe, Volibear, Sejuani and Anivia. Naturally, Glacial units lack damage / clear speed and you’ll often end up with ties if you don’t incorporate enough damage into your team (be it feeding Volibear with Statikk Shivs or going Rangers). In this case, we’re going Rangers as they’re a…
