Master Yi is here! Riot will be introducing five new champions to Legends of Runeterra in the new Darkin Saga: Awakening expansion. Kayn was the first champion revealed by Riot. He introduced a new origin, The Shadow Reaper, and a new Auto-Equip keyword. However the Wuju Bladesman from Ionia, Master Yi, introduces a brand new keyword, Flow, that will hasten the flow of gameplay and will encourage players to experiment with their decks.

So without further ado, let's take a look at Master Yi and all of the cards that will synergize well with him!
