Threats & Synergies
The exceptional range of Bouncing Bomb should be abused as much as possible and especially so anytime Ryze is left without creep waves for protection.
Play safe and rush chalice of harmony. Stay back and farm with q. If the chance arises to hit him with q then take it. He should be low enough to ignite and r sooner or later. If he tries to go all in then use everything. Your burst is better then his. Your satchel charge jump will not get you over Azir's wall so don't try!
you can re-position his turrets with your W.Wipe out his turrets with Q and poke him from far outside his range.
Practice reflexive use of Ziggs' Satchel Charge for when Orianna attempts to toss The Ball into his path. The ability to successfully dodge the initial burst of both Orianna's ult and a follow-up slow is life-saving.
Try to avoid her Q (Light binding) at all costs, as it's all she needs to unleash her full combo. Use your Satchel charge (W), flash or Zhonya's active if necessary. Besides, she's at her most vulnerable state with her Q on cooldown.
She counters you in everything. Play defensive, hug your tower and don't get caught in a bad position, you can farm with your Q and E easily once you get enough mana and ability power (Athene's unholy grail is great for this)
Yasuo's Windwall will block all of Ziggs abilities except his ultimate.
Try to poke him earlier lvl's and play safe. w away if he sends his ult.
Try to poke him with q,e and aa from range
Dodge his shurikens and dont get in range of his shadow. Poke him from range.
