This guy completely ruins you even if you turret camp. If the person playing Pantheon is smart, they will prevent you getting any sort of farm at all and will tower dive you early too. He's a pretty rare encounter, but if you're first picking, ban this guy. Chances are they will pick this matchup.
Top lane Vayne isn't going to be as full in as other melee's, however, her pokes are gonna hurt. You want to be up against a match up where you can at least farm, against this champion? Good luck
Same with Pantheon. Completely prevents you from farming, trades are impossible with this guy early game because his sustain is so much better.
This champion is so annoying to lane against as any good early game champion, with Kayle's early game being as bad as it is, this isn't really an ideal match up and best to avoid it.
If you're playing against a really good Darius, they will probably all in you if they can before Level 6. You can win this match up by trying to avoid his abilities and using your W to get away, but you never want to over push this lane and just farm.
Yeah, she can't do too much to you. Her damage naturally hurts, so try your best to avoid her abilities and tentacles. If she does hit an ability, just poke her back, since even if she takes your soul, chances are you'll be able to do a lot of damage back and heal it back with W.
This guy is just annoying, but not a threat. Just destroy his barrels when you have the chance, but be careful of ganks, even if you win this match-up you won't win the lane if you over push without vision, as you are extremely vulnerable to ganks. You can out poke this guy really well.
You'll probably rarely get this match-up since of his pick rate, however if you do, this match-up is just annoying. You can farm, but he can just heal your pokes and poke you back just as well. He isn't impossible to kill, but if you get a lead in lane, you win this match up.
Her poke's aren't going to be any sort of threat if you keep your distance, and her passive can easily be healed back. Stay away from walls and be wary of ganks and you win this since most of the time she goes tank.
This match-up is just annoying, since she is just going to poke you a ton. However Quinn is really bad in team fights, so use that to an advantage. You want to poke her after she's used her abilities on you, and stay away from her when she has her passive up.
Just keep your distance around this guy since he will probably all in you at level 3 if he takes ignite. His laning phase is much better than yours since he doesn't have mana , however he can't tower dive you since your R will counter his R at most times. Just farm as best as you can for your late game.
All this guy does is poke and heal, but his early game isn't amazing either. You want to try and deny him farm by poking him with your E, but chances are he'll just heal this back, so don't expect to kill him 1 on 1 most fights. If you're not careful he can out-poke you since he doesn't rely on mana like you do.
I've personally never played against an Aatrox top lane, however after his changes I'd say he's pretty strong if played right and can probably trade with you pretty well, but nothing that can prevent you from farming too badly.
Yeaaah Riven is Riven, she'll most likely just block your pokes with her E and trade back with you harder. You aren't going to win trades with this champion early game, and she will most likely just out sustain you as a whole and you'll never be able to farm as well to even reach your late game. Avoid this match up.
This champion is just ok for you. Avoid her Q's and back off when she uses her W and poke her when she's used her abilities. However, don't try and over push this lane, always keep your distance because chances are she'll try to all in you if she takes ignite.
His damage early game is just a biiig yikes if he manages to land his abilities. Avoid his abilities and use R if he tries to all in you and flash away. Always keep your distance because his damage is scaaary.
This guys just all poke, but just avoid his boomerang and try not to let him stack his passive and you'll be ok. His R isn't an extreme threat to you since you can just R yourself if he manages to hit you with his boulders. As long as you can farm, you're ok.
This guy is just annoying in general. His shields are going to prevent you from poking a lot, and he'll trade back harder. Always keep your distance and freeze waves if possible, If he R's you, try and R yourself if you can, and back away ASAP.
Fiora is just even with you since you can trade with her when she uses her Q, and you can just R when she uses her R. She's never going to be able to use her full potential on you and you will out scale her hard if you farm right.
Keep in mind, this guy is just a tank, and isn't going to be a threat to you. Avoid his taunt, poke him after he uses his W and you're all good to go. The only thing you want to be careful of is when he uses his R to warn your team beforehand if you can see him, and use this time to farm, but beware of jungle ganks if the jungle isn't caught with vision.
There's not much to say about Yasuo since he's just an annoying champion to play against in general, however early game he's going to win the fight, and it'll be annoying to poke him because of his passive, but try to poke more when his shield is down. Avoid his Q's and you should be ok. If he R's you, just use your R after.
This guy isn't going to be much of a threat to you if you keep your distance and W away when he uses his Q or E. He's just tanky and annoying to play against and poke because of his passive, but it's nothing you can't win if a jungler comes to gank your lane.
Her kit is just annoying for you early game. W to poke you, E, R to slow/stun you, Q, etc. As long as you can avoid her Q's and pokes you should be able to farm, however winning this lane will be a bit harder than any other. Make sure to stay far away from her when she has her passive up because chances are she'll go for you.
If you have an Amumu jungle, chances are any team fight past level 11 with items, you will win for your team with your passive/rageblade combo to deal damage and his R to keep everyone rooted. His ganks are quite helpful to you too.
This guy scales just as well as you in terms of this build. If you both farm well and get fed, chances are with your R and damage, both these champs are good in team fights together.
Heals, stuns, heals, stuns, yes. Great support to have on your team with Kayle.
Her heals and passive and R are great to work with you
