New Keyword - lurk

In Rise of the Underworlds, you’ll encounter creatures unlike anything seen in Runeterra as you know it. Our newest keyword - Lurk - powers up new Lurker followers anywhere with +1|+0 if you attack with allies while one lurks on top of your deck.

XERXARETH THE UNDERTITAN

Some Lurkers have powerful bonus effects when Lurk activates for them as well.

SACRED PROTECTOR

If you plan on playing with Lurkers, think ahead; you’ll need to be able to predict what’s on top of your deck to use them effectively...

EKKO

Time isn’t a simple line when Ekko is around. Ekko manipulates both your deck and the battlefield using his trademark Zaunite ingenuity.

If things don’t go your way, Ekko’s Chronobreak can let you essentially redo an entire round, reviving your units and rallying for a second wave of attacks!

PYKE

Efficient and deadly, Pyke transforms into a spell that allows him to strike enemies without a moment’s notice after Lurking.

PYKE LEVEL 2
SANDSTORM PYKE LEVEL 1

After leveling up, he gains the ability to systematically assassinate enemy units, leaving the board clear to plunder as he wishes.
