Notes
Only the default skin's weapon counts. Only weapons used in auto attacks count. All types of swords are counted as "Sword," all types of guns are counted as "Gun," but cannons are distinct from guns. "Knife" includes throwing knives.

Graves is not included. Ninetales is not included.

Casseopeia is counted as Snake
Corki is counted as Gun
Dr. Mundo is counted as Cleaver, not Sword.
Gangplank is counted as both Sword and Gun
Garen is counted as both Sword and Unnarmed
Karma is counted as Knife and not Magical Energy
Kassadin is counted as Sword even though it's a magic voidblade
Katarina is counted as both Knife and Unnarmed
Kog'maw is counted as Saliva
Gragas is counted as Unarmed
Leona is counted as Sword but not Shield
Nidalee is counted as both Javelin and Unnarmed
Nocturne is counted as Unarmed even though his arms are swords
Pantheon is counted as both Spear and Shield
Poppy is counted as Hammer but not Shield
Renekton is counted as Sword even though I'm not really sure what his weapon is supposed to be
Riven is counted as Sword even though it's a broken sword
Rumble is counted as Mace
Shen is counted as Sword even though his weapons are so short that they're almost knives
Singed is counted as Shield even though he holds that weird potion thing
Soraka is counted as both Magical Energy and Banana
Talon is counted as Knife even though his weapons are so long that they're almost swords
Taric is counted as Hammer but not Shield
Tristana is counted as Cannon
Urgot is counted as Cannon
Vayne only counts as Crossbow once
Vladimir is counted as Blood

Mages Who Don't Use Magical Energy:
Casseopeia, Heimerdinger, Janna, Karma, Kassadin, Orianna, Rumble, Vladimir, Zilean


With all of this said, Riot, may I be the first to beg that you consider this list before designing more champions. The League may be full on swords, magical energy, and unarmed attacks at the moment. At the very least, it has room for more archers.
