Threats to Shaco with this build
|Aatrox||Just don't get knocked up by his Q and you will be fine, also you are all about getting kills early game, his passive even though potent, early game it is almost useless.|
(I will be updating this, so expect better)
Shaco is an assassin, carry and jungler. but in this build I will be showing you how to top lane with Shaco, now this is not the most effective way to play Shaco but if your ever needed to go to top lane, you will be happy you read this build :).

I chose these runes because, Shaco is squishy so the armour and health seals will give you (even though little) some defence.
The attack damage, armour penetration and crictical damage, these will help you 1. Take down squishy targets no matter what and also help you against foes who build armour Rammus is only one of many who rely on armour and being tanky to kill there foes
I chose this skill sequence because you are not going to jungle this game, you need to have the extra mobility and burst damage to harass enemy champions.
If you are low and an enemy champ is chasing you (they must be at least below half health) run into a bush, place a Jack In The Box and Deceive on the spot or out of the bush (A.K.A Get behind your target) when your J.I.B starts to attack, start to attack the target if it is low enough you can use Ignite to finish your target off.
If a team fight breaks out, focus the lowest target (even if running away) these are usually going to deal high damage and does not want to get focused, this will in some cases win the fight for your team (It wouldn't kill to throw down a J.I.B in the fight to fear the enemies)
Because you will be laning, not jungling there is not need for Smite, this will help you get xp after a recall (TIP:Recall when your Teleport is up, Only Recall without Teleport up if needed)
For when your foes go under there tower, this will secure you kills in most cases if used correctly
Because Shaco is so squishy you will need a support or your team's tank to engage into a fight, Shaco is more of a cleaner, either bursting down a tank, or picking off running foes
Use your team's health as a support for you, Late game is not the best time for Shaco as his foes have become tanky, even though this should not be a huge problem if you have got your build, it still is risky facing a 2 v 1.
Shaco is a beast early game, a nuisance mid game and a focused burster late game.
Shaco is a hard champion to master, (even I haven't yet) but once you do, you will be unstoppable killing most of the other teams carries and supports feeding your team to victory.
