League of Legends Mid Lane Tier List: Best Champions to Play in Patch 12.7

Wondering what the best mid-lane champions to play in patch 12.7 are? We have got you covered with the mid-lane tier list.

Midlaners almost always play champions that can carry games and impact other lanes. There are many high mechanical champions you can play in the mid-lane, as well as some easier champions.

As a midlaner, you have to understand the strength of your champion. Some champions can push out the minion wave early and roam to other lanes, while some are weaker in early games and need to scale by farming and getting items.

Here are the best mid-lane champions for patch 12.7.

Best Mid Lane Champion in Patch 12.7

S-Tier

Ahri

Ahri is one of the best midlaners right now. You can see her stomping in pro play as well. After her mini rework on patch 12.3, she quickly rose to the top of mid-lane champions and she is still strong in 12.7. Ahri has a lot of mobility and damage.

  • Keystone: Electrocute
  • Core Build: Everfrost > Shadowflame

Yasuo

Yasuo

Yasuo got a sizeable buff in patch 12.7 and shot up to S tier from the lowest tier. He is again in the meta, just in time for his new Sea Dog Yasuo skin. He almost has a 51% win rate and rising constantly.
He can use the already strong Lethal Tempo to buff him up even more.

  • Keystone: Lethal Tempo
  • Core Build: Immortal Shieldbow > Infinity Edge

Zed

Even after his nerf in 12.2, where the AD ratio in his ultimate went to 65% from 100%, Zed is slowly climbing in the meta. And now, Zed is one of the best midlaners in this patch. So if you are a Zed main, this is finally the time to climb ranked with him, considering he makes it through the ban phase.

  • Keystone: Electrocute
  • Core Build: Duskblade of Draktharr > Youmuu’s Ghostblade

A-Tier

Veigar

Veigar

Veigar with Predator has gained a lot of popularity in recent times. But he is weak in the early game, and many champions can punish him. Champions like Zed, Katarina, etc., can make your life a living hell. However, if you can stay safe and scale up, Veigar can easily win mid to late games.

  • Keystone: Predator
  • Core Build: Everfrost > Rabadon’s Deathcap

Anivia

Anivia

Anivia is sitting comfortably in A-tier with a 52% win rate. Anivia can be hard to play, but you can win many games if you can master her. Furthermore, Anivia is hardly banned in ranked, so you will always find her available.

  • Keystone: Electrocute
  • Core Build: Everfrost > Archangel’s Staff

Fizz

Fizz is strong right now with an excellent win rate. But if you are facing good opponents, you will definitely get zoned out. However, Fizz doesn’t need to have high cs to kill squishy carries in the late game. So don’t worry if you are missing some cs; try to roam, and if you manage to get 1-2 kills in the early game, you can take over.

  • Keystone: Electrocute
  • Core Build: Luden’s Tempest > Zhonya’s Hourglass

Talon

Talon

Since Riot nerfed Talon’s jungle, players have picked him up again in the mid-lane — and he is pretty strong there. For 4-5 patches straight, Talon has around a 52% win rate. Talon’s roaming ability and mobility are unmatched, and lethality Talon is still one of the best assassins in the game.

  • Keystone: Electrocute
  • Core Build: Prowler’s Claw > Youmuu’s Ghostblade

Pyke

Pyke

Pyke is pretty weak at support right now, but he is making it up in the mid-lane. Pyke is sitting comfortably with a 54% win rate. The only problem you will face is his wave clear, which is not that good.

  • Keystone: Hail of Blades
  • Core Build: Duskblade of Draktharr > Youmuu’s Ghostblade

Cassiopea

Cassiopea provides a sustain DPS while most other champions in S and A tiers deal burst damage. Cassiopea is not that easy to play, but she is pretty strong right now. So patch 12.6 is an excellent time to pick her up as she currently has more than a 51.5% win rate.

  • Keystone: Conqueror
  • Core Build: Everfrost > Archangel’s Staff > Rylai’s Crystal Scepter

Vladimir

Vladimir is somehow slowly creeping into the meta without any recent nerfs or buffs. He has an increasing win rate for the past 4-5 patches and now has more than a 51% win rate. In addition, Vladimir is another champion that is rarely banned in ranked. So he is an excellent pick to gain elo before Riot nerfs him.

  • Keystone: Phase Rush
  • Core Build: Hextech Rocketbelt > Cosmic Drive

B-Tier

  • Qiyana
  • Zilean
  • Malzahar
  • Diana
  • Vex
  • Kayle
  • Lissandra
  • Rumble
  • Annie
  • Viktor
  • Neeko
  • Galio
  • Pantheon
  • Ekko
  • Chogath
  • Graves
  • Lux
  • Kassadin

There are a lot of champions in this tier, and they are all pretty good in the meta if you can play them. But they are not overpowered in any way. So the best way to play these champions is to counter-pick the enemy midlaner.

C-Tier

  • Seraphine
  • Jayce
  • Azir
  • Gangplank
  • Aurelion Sol
  • Renekton
  • Vel’koz
  • Zoe
  • Ziggs
  • Malphite
  • Karma
  • Orianna
  • Xerath
  • Brand
  • Twisted Fate
  • Yone

These champions are either not that strong or take high skill levels to pull off. Azir is a solid pick and is played professionally regularly. But getting good at Azir takes a long time, and for most players, it is not worth their time to put so much time into learning a champion. They just dont offer much at the monent. There are far better and easier champions to play to constantly gain LP.

D-Tier

  • Katarina

Katarina is having a hard time keeping up with champions in the meta having a lot of CC to shut her down.

F-Tier

  • Lucian
  • Akali
  • Corki
  • Syndra
  • Irelia
  • LeBlanc
  • Ryze
  • Kaisa
  • Sylas

Champions in this tier have horrible win rates. Just don’t pick them even if you are great at these champions. The risks are way higher than the rewards. Unsurprisingly after the nerf, Ryze went from 44% win rate to a sub 40% win rate. He is in need of a rework pretty soon.
