Technically, the best way to play Teamfight Tactics is to adjust as things happen. When TFT offers you a couple of Nobles or Wild, generally you should lean into those and utilize them for early game success. However, sometimes I find myself chasing after a certain team comp before the match even starts. If that’s you, then this guide should be right up your alley. This is our Best TFT Demons Team Comp guide which is up to date as of TFT Patch 9.16b.

TFT Demons Team Comp with Rangers
The best TFT Demons comp is one that is splashed in with Rangers. Demons have been reworked! Their basic attacks have a 40% chance to burn 20 mana from their target and return 15/30/45 mana to the attacker. The former isn’t bad, but the later is exceptionally good. More mana means more ability activations which leads to more damage output than your opponent.
In the end, your team comp should look like: Aatrox, Ashe, Kindred, Mordekaiser, Sejuani, Varus, and Vayne.
With this group you’ll get the following buffs:
- 4 Rangers: Every three seconds, Rangers have a 65% chance to double their attack speed for three seconds.
- 2 Knights: Your team ignores 15 damage from all sources.
- 2 Demons: Demon basic attacks have a 40% chance to burn 20 mana from their target and return 15 mana to the attacker.
- 2 Glacials: Glacial units have a 25% chance to stun on hit for two seconds.
- 2 Phantoms: Curse a random enemy at the start of combat, setting their HP to 100.
Build Priority: Rapid Firecannon, 2x Spear of Shojin
You will need: 2 Recurve Bows, 2 BF Swords, 2 Tears of the Goddess
- Rapid Firecannon = Recurve Bow + Recurve Bow
- Spear of Shojin = Tear of the Goddess + BF Sword
Build Priority: Bloodthirster, Phantom Dancer, Hextech Gunblade
You will need: 2 BF Swords, 1 Negatron Cloak, 1 Recurve Bow, 1 Chain Vest, 1 Needlessly Large Rod
- Bloodthirster = BF Sword + Negatron Cloak
- Phantom Dancer = Chain Vest + Recurve Bow
- Hextech Gunblade = BF Sword + Needlessly Large Rod
Build Priority: Frozen Heart, Redemption, Guardian Angel
You will need: 2 Chain Vests, 2 Tears of the Goddess, 1 BF Sword, 1 Giant’s Belt
- Frozen Heart = Chain Vest + Tear of the Goddess
- Redemption = Giant’s Belt + Tear of the Goddess
- Guardian Angel = BF Sword + Chain Vest
How many champions should I run? You probably only want to splash a few Demons into whatever comp your running these days. They higher tiers aren’t good enough to justify.
Champions Ranked by Priority
If your main synergy is Demons, this is the order in which you should prioritize the Demon champions. Obviously, you’ll have other synergies that you need to account for, but if you need to transition up, this is the order in which you should do so.
- Swain: A 5-cost hero, Swain is worth the purchase. He can synergize with Demons, Imperials, and Shapeshifters, and his ability drains the opponent’s health; very helpful if you’re also burning their mana and champions can’t get their own abilities off. Swain’s cost and general rarity will normally restrict him to a late-game, tier 1 unit, but it’s worth building a party around him.
- Aatrox: Aatrox has an amazing ability that hits all the enemies in front of him, and coupled with the Demon synergy he has a chance of doing a lot of damage in a short time. On top of that, he has a 25% chance of a critical hit, and you have a unit that can make short work of entire teams.
- Varus: Varus is a 2 cost unit that’s easy to build up tier wise and also easy to build team comps around. His ability isn’t the most spectacular, but his Ranger synergy is easy to get, with only two units giving you a 25% chance of doubling attack speed… which means more chances to activate that Demon synergy.
- Evelynn: Assassins are lackluster. With the right items, however, Evelynn can absolutely wreck squishier units in the back before they can do anything, and what’s better than proccing a Mana Burn on a Sorcerer?
- Morgana: Morgana has an ability that can stun enemies, and her Sorcerer class Synergy is easy to match with others for additional spell damage. Also, if you can get some Lockets on her, Morgana is a prime unit to help share the defensive boosts the Locket of the Iron Solari gives.
- Brand: At 4-cost, Brand isn’t worth the effort as compared to most of the Demons. The Elementalist synergy is alright but will be hard to pull off if you’re focusing on Demon comps. Ultimately, his ability being so slow is the thing that’s holding Brand down.
- Elise: Elise may share class synergy with Swain as a Shapeshifter, but that’s about the extent of Elise’s usefulness as a unit beyond the early game. Her ability isn’t that great, and her overall DPS is low, making her the worst of the Demons available.
