Legends of Runeterra Meta Snapshot #1 Update

On the 16th of September, three weeks after the release of Call of the Mountain's first expansion, Riot Games released a balanced patch notes for Legends of Runeterra. Lacking conclusive data on cards newly introduced with the Targon region, they chose to deal with other problematic units introduced in the game previously. While the buffs and nerfs have not affected Targon directly, they still have had considerable effects on the metagame and thus prompted us to update our Meta Snapshot. You can find the updated Snapshot here as well as a detailled changelog just below.
