27. Bard

Bard is the newest champion to make the list, so if you were hoping to see good ol’ Illaoi in here, you’re in for a sad surprise.

Luckily our magical friend made it, though, and for a variety of reasons. Not only does Bard provide many practical uses to his team such as ranged, hard CC, but he also is likely the most fun support in the game — just look at him.

In all seriousness, there are so many plays that a Bard can pull off that literally no other character can. He can set up massive teamfight wombo-combos, save objectives by ulting them, render entire backlines useless and this is only considering the possibilities of his ultimate.

His magical journey allows teams to dance back and forth between mid lane and Baron seamlessly. The macro play of the LCS has been slightly elevated ever since this extra capability was given to teams. The rapid speed they can go between the two objectives lets them force the enemy team into uncomfortable face-checks. And, he does all of this with that epic beard.

He is a strong counter to sometimes oppressive champions, as well, such as Zed or Talon, because if they decide to attempt to nuke a fellow carry, Bard can simply ult them. The infinite tools at his disposal, his inherently fun vibe and the ability to influence the map from so far away is what brings Bard to 27.
