Threats & Synergies
She's a hard match-up since can heal up every damage you and your plants give.
Morgana's W can kill your plants easily and once she catches you with her Q, you're dead.
This match-up is tricky. It's all up to Blitzcrank's ability. But once you get pulled, it's game over.
I, personally, can't deal with Pykes. They have mobility, pulling, stun, invisibility, insta-kill ultimate. Good Luck.
Just never underestimate her Q and you'll be fine. Q+WW = 50% of her health
His E can hit you via plants, his Q can get you dead and you can't escape his R without zhonya or flash.
In my opinion, it's completely skill based match-up.
Jhin can 1 shot you, he can root you. You can't trade him unless you're attacking from shadows.
This guy's wind wall and mobility will just make you you to flash away.
She can't do anything against you.
Believe it or not, her early harras is better than yours but after you hit 6, she's nothing but a free kill.
A good Lulu will not let you dominate the lane that easily, her AA kills your plants easily and is mobile. Just be careful.
You just have to be careful about his bombs and don't get too close since you'll be a snail trying to walk away.
He's not hard. He's just annoying and dependant on his adc for killing you. But you gotta accept that he's very mobile can escape your E Q WW really easily.
Once a Garen is trying to catch you, know that you're dead unless someone is coming for you or you have flash. Don't even try to waste your Zhonya.
Root him before he jumps on you/your ADC.
She'll give you hard time.
JUST ZHONYA HIS R AND YOU'LL HAVE A CHANCE.
I want to talk about Zyra first, she was originally a mid-laner mage and now she's being played Support with 87%. Her burst damage is so insane that you can win 1v2. Just need to have a good position during the fights. Talking about the position, she has no mobility or an escape ability except rooting people who chase you with E which you shouldn't depend on too much. So, you must think every step you take and keep your position.
Back to the laning phase, I always start with E then Q and W. Level 3 should be the time you show off yourself to the opponent. I know, Support role shouldn't take any kills but in low elo things are different. You can't depend on your team.
This is my first guide so it might suck a little bit, sorry about it already.
The best times to use Zhonya is E+Q+WW+R and bam. Let the plants kill them!
Be careful while throwing your skills since your E is 12 secs and believe me, lots of things can happen in 12 secs. Use it wisely.
Even if your Q won't hit just Q+WW and it'll keep the enemy ADC from minions as your ADC will be happily farming.
BUSHES & WARDS
I always drop my first pinky to the corner bush around the 3rd minute but if I'm against a Blitzcrank, Morgana, Leona, I drop my ward to the closest bush to my tower. My 2nd or 3rd ward will be dropped to the bush which is at below of Dragon's Pit.
AFTER FIRST TOWER
After the first tower, I keep my bushes warded and try to roam mid as I tell my ADC to be careful. After getting our mid laner one or two kills we get the mid tower. I even sometimes roam to Solo. I always stay away from the enemy's jungle as I have almost no vision there.
That's all for now. Thanks for checking my guide!
