Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Once you hit Level 3, you can easily last hit minions with Mystic Shot. If your against a Veigar, you might want to use a different build. If your against a melee in mid, try to harass alot and deny minion kills. As Ezreal, until later you won't have much durability. So when your health is under 1/2, be cautious and don't get aggressive until you have decent health. On your first time back, try to grab Sorcerer's Shoes, 2 Sight Wards and 2 Health Potions. If you don't know whether you can afford it or not, go back to base and ask someone/jungler to cover your lane while you add it up. Once ganks start happening, you might want to counter them ganks. Example, if you're getting ganked from bot lane alot, try and gank that lane.
In teamfight, head to the back of your group and cast your ultimate. This will unload heavy damage on all the enemies. Keep poking with Arcane Shift, Mystic Shot and Essence Flux. If you're not doing so well, don't bother with the mejais. Get a Gunblade instead.
Endgame, grab Archangels Staff, Rabadon's Deathcap and Banshee's Veil. This should give quite decent damage output and some durability with Banshee's Veil. Basically, you want some very nice damage. You can grab a GA if you're getting focused down in teamfights.
I choose to max Mystic Shot first because the 1 second CDR (CoolDown Reduction) when it hits an enemy is amazingly useful. Essence Flux/Arcane Shift are good to max first, but I choose to max Q first. Another reason is that it does Great Damage on AP Builds as well as AD Builds. Next is Essence Flux. Again, you can choose Arcane Shift or Mystic Shot and second maxed but the damage from Essence Flux can be useful after using your ultimate in teamfights and the attack speed buff is amazing in teamfights too. Next is Arcane Shift. It doesn't do too much damage, but the positioning with it is needed for Mystic Shot and Essence Flux.
Ghost because its generally great for chasing and escaping, and the same with Exhaust.
You could take Ignite/Flash or Ghost/Ignite and get the masteries for them.
EDIT: get the mastery for whichever summoners you choose. This will really enhance them and make them much more useful.
Creeping / Jungling
DONT JUNGLE AS EZREAl!
Only start killing jungle creeps once you enter ganking phase/ mid game if you have a jungler. Otherwise, run up to either wolves or wraiths and take them down. This can easily give you a giant gold advantage later on.
Try to gather your team for dragon as soon as possible. Dragon is a very important objective and low elo players dont usually go for Dragon, but its worth it. Its the same with Baron Nashor, except you rush for baron if your losing or the enemies and pushing (Preferably middle lane, because you can intercept if they run through the river to go recall etc.
Try for your jungler to be last pick because they wont know if you will have a jungle or not. This plan is screwed up if they get a Roaming Janna or a Alistar.
