Levia, the Misunderstood: Matchup Guide

This is a follow-up to Mark's prior article on Levia, "Have We Misunderstood Levia All Along?", and goes into matchup-specific advice and sideboarding. If you wound up here first by accident, jump back to that article before proceeding!

Matchup Guide

This matchup guide is still incomplete, because we're still working through all the relevant matchups. However, these are the broad strokes of the matchups, including how to shift your strategy and what to side out.


Against Rhinar, you'll want all 11 of your defense reactions- blocking is extremely relevant to the matchup. Tear Limb from Limb and Plunder Run are both out; the former can't be used to block, making it a liability, while the latter takes too many steps to get fully online.


This matchup plays out similar to Rhinar, where we do a lot more blocking. We keep Plunder Run in this time, but we take out Howl from Beyond. Hold your best blocks, including Carrion Husk, for punishing Crush attacks like Crush Confidence.
