Threats to Yasuo with this build
|Dr. Mundo||This lane is pretty boring. You might kill him before level 6, but don't count on it. After level 6 you won't be killing him, but he won't be killing you either. This is a farming heavy lane on both sides. Just do your best to CS and rush those items. If Dr. Mundo attempts to go aggressive on you, give him a taste of Yasuo's Sweeping Blade + Steel Tempest combo and then Sweeping Blade off of him so you don't take too much damage from his Burning Agony. You'll out trade him as long as you stand behind minions while farming. Just make sure you get a Last Whisper for lategame, or life is going to be difficult in team-fights.|
|Ekko||Wind Wall to block Timewinder Yasuo out damages Ekko, and you can easily block Timewinder. As long as you don't get baited by Chronobreak and you watch for Parallel Convergence plus a jungle gank, this lane is very easy.|
|Gnar||This lane is easy, but unlike the Dr. Mundo lane, this is actually fun to play against. Despite the fact that this lane is easy, it won't be easy if you don't understand how this lane works. That's why there is a lot to talk about. Let's talk about how this lane will go based on level with Gnar Form. levels 1-4 Mini Gnar: Around this time Gnar is pretty weak. I would suggest trying to trade with him around this time window. I suggest getting Sweeping Blade at level 2, so you can trade with Gnar easier early on. Get Wind Wall at level 3, and you'll be able to trade him without much consequence. Farm is really important in this lane, which I'll go into later, but also make sure you're being aggressive at levels 1-4 to try and get first blood. Levels 1-4 Mega Gnar: Mega gnar early on isn't really too scary, but he does have a lot more survivability to your kit. When he's mega, try to focus more on farm. If he decides to go aggressive on you, do your best to use your Sweeping Blade and Wind Wall to your advantage and dodge abilities. If he tries to Hyper / Wallop (Wallop) you, Sweeping Blade on him or minions. If he tries to Boomerang Throw / Boulder Toss you, be ready to Wind Wall it, or dodge it with Sweeping Blade. Generally stay out of range of his Hop / Crunch (crunch) because it makes it easier for him to land the rest of his abilities. Be careful, because he can Hop mid transformation and crunch after transformation. levels 5+ Mini/Mega: This is around the time Gnar becomes more powerful, so at this point don't try to trade as much as levels 1-4. Pretty much every Gnar you play against will go all in at level 6. Be ready for this and try not to get stunned against a wall by his GNAR!. What most people forget is that Yasuo Level 6+ is dangerous verses tanks because Last Breath gives Yasuo 50% armor penetration after he ults. I've played this lane a lot, so hear are my final thoughts. Mechanically, Yasuo beats gnar, because a good portion of his Mini and Mega damage is blocked by his Wind Wall and another good portion can be dodged by his Sweeping Blade. Pay attention to when he is about to go mega, because it's usually when Gnar players go aggressive. When Gnar goes into mega form after level 6, don't be afraid to fight him. Yasuo is one of the best suited champions to deal with mega Gnar, and you will always win the all in if you get your Last Breath damage on him. Lategame ganr is pretty much the same as 6+ Gnar. Although try not to focus him in team-fights first.|
