Threats & Synergies
Can dodge your ult with his own ult or his shadow. Can completely burst down and annihilate you in lane. He has more lane presence and poke, which makes this lane impossible to play in, unless he doesn't know what he's doing.
Very very short Q cooldown, but his MR doesn't scale, and you can burst him down easily with your ult + W combo. However, being an AD mid laner, he can cs very well and his auto attacks do damage.
Has a delayed jump, but no escapes besides that. He should be easily ulted and bursted down with your kit. Easy lane for you.
Focus down pre-six, try to engage when she doesnt have her pyromania stacks, and keep a safe distance post-6. Ask for ganks post-6 too.
The ultimate lane bully. Build MR and ask your jungler for ganks. Her burst/poke combo is Q - W - R or Q - R - W, so beware when she starts casting her Q.
Spears are easily dodged, if you can land your ult it should be an easy lane. Watch out for her Cougar form as it is mobile and can dodge your ult.
Another lane bully. Same case as annie, focus down pre-6, or when she runs out of mana.
Dodge the skillshots and you should be fine. Beware of the true damage passive though.
Your W helps you get away from her ult range, and after doing so you can ult her back and finish her off.
Vlad has been a new, safe mid pick this season. He can pool your w and dodge your ult, and has infinite sustain in lane. Hard matchup.
Post-6 monster, but can be countered if you w as she dashes to you and ult if you want to finish her off. try to predict her dashes to you so you can ult.
Can easily escape from your ult, but you easily outscale and poke more than her. Although hard to kill, she is very mana-reliant and can be focused down when she doesn't have any mana left.
Just take the nope train to nopeville. Don't play mid when he's around. He will always get a kill even in a 1v5.
