Smite Janna top lane is the latest anomaly in League of Legends.

Your game plan is simple when it comes to the obscure pick. You stay in the lane for the first couple of minutes until you reach level three. Afterward, you join your jungler and make the game for other laners a nightmare, while at the same time cashing in thanks to the objective bounty reward system.

Recent changes have led to Janna cementing herself as one of the best champions in solo queue. Nevertheless, there are some champions that counter her.

Here are some of the best Janna top counters in League of Legends, according to a stat site

Rengar currently boasts the highest win rate against Janna top at 56.5 percent. His assassin-orientated kit and high burst damage allow him to eliminate Janna in the latter stages of the game, taking away her capabilities in teamfight situations. He’s also one of the better roaming champs, and players are able to respond to Janna and her jungler’s aggression early while pushing the top lane in an impressive manner.

Yone currently has a 49.88 percent win rate when matched against Janna.
