Threats & Synergies
This should be your permaban, you're never going to beat him.
Can be tough for newer players. All you have to do is all in lvl 1 and 2 and play behind minions to make sure you don't get poked. Ashe isn't actually as hard as it seems, because her win condition is to freeze lane and run you down through her slows -- which forces you to take the fight instead of running. However, kaisa is good at long fights so you can come out on top a lot of the time.
Naut is super tanky so it's difficult to burst him down lvl 1-2. But, what's the worst is his ultimate: once he reaches 6, he can completely shut you down with one ability. Whether it's mid or late game, his ultimate shuts down any ability to carry regardless of how strong you are
You can easily destroy a samira lvl 1-2 but once she hits lvl 3, she can completely nullify your iso q + w combo with her w. Once she hits 6, she can basically annihilate you simply b/c of champ diff.
Depending on the elo, ezreal can be tough OR can be very easy. Regardless however, you're going to have to be very careful. It's going to be difficult to kill ezreal in lane, so the only ways you can get a lead are through other modes of gold such as MINION and TOWER PLATES. This means, you're going to have to cheat a recall and get an early cull, then push lane hard in this matchup. If it's suitable, let your support know to roam, so you can 1v2 or 1v1 in lane for solo exp to make sure you beat ezreal in lane.
You must all in vayne lvl 1 or 2 otherwise you'll probably lose lane. This matchup can be fine if you are against vayne + engage. However, if it's vayne + lulu you're going to have to play exceptionally well. Outfarm her and learn q + aa trading combos. She out ranges you and can poke you out with her q so just make surse she can't get her pta proc off on you.
kaisa heavily relies on her lvl 1-2 all ins and her ability to kill at 6. Polymorph, her shields, guardian, and her ultimate all make it nearly impossible to kill her and get a lead off her. This can make it really difficult to deal with her. However, laning phase should be very easy.
Kaisa relies on q+aa+aa with HoB to win trades. However, MF's high base ad and high ad build + her love tap allows her to almost always beat you in trades from her q+aa combo. You can win the matchup if you take longer fights, especially if mf's go for q max. If the mf goes for W max, you're going to have to be very careful. However, she's not very popular and you shouldn't be that bad off.
Jhins currently pretty strong and can actually beat you lvl 1 and 2 if he can take good spacing and good trades. However, kaisa can easily E in and go for long trade, proc passive, and land w as long as you're not in a wave. Jhin won't be able to counter trade this. Jhin matchup kind of relies on your support to initiate as well along with you.
Caitlyn used to be a difficult matchup, but after her nerfs she became really easy. Her only win condition is if she lands trap or her NET. The NET is the key to beating this matchup. Try to all in lvl 1 and 2 before she levels net. Once she has net, try to bait it out with your e or dodge it. Once she doesn't have it, you can easily just all in and beat her in a trade.
Buy cull early to beat her through trades. She's really weak early so just try to fight her as much as possible. Bait out her spell shield and then use w.
ALL IN LVL 1!!! she's really really weak lvl 1 and 2. Just kill her here then you should be able to win lane. It's hard to farm with senna so you should be able to get 100+ cs lead on her and just take over the game. Just watch out for her q heal. Simply auto and q her and w her once she heals, not before.
Most lucians are really bad and he's not that good right now in the bot lane, so you shouldn't be worried about facing him. If you do happen to face him, just wait for him to waste his q on the wave, then you can e in and just win the trade.
Your w reveals his stealth and he can't ever outtrade you at any stage in the game. Probably go full ap build and annihilate him mid to late.
