Threats & Synergies
Ahri vs syndra is a skill matchup. you have to dodge her skillshots and shove in the wave because she outranges you. Your mana sustain is better than hers before lost chapter.
A good fizz will not allow you to land your charm and without it, you're far too useless. He gets a freeze and you're useless. The only way ahri can beat fizz is to have higher mobility than him through ap items and mobis so he can't ever catch you with his ult or jump. I used to beat fizz with corrupting pot before it was nerfed because auto attacks would proc the burn.
There's no counterplay against a good yasuo when he can just windwall a good charm. However, seeker's is a great item against yas. You try your best to go even in lane and be more useful than him out of lane.
You can perma shove in the wave to avoid trades. A good ekko will always outdamage you if he gets a good angle and dodges your charm. Ekko with first cloud drake is very strong, making it a major threat. He will probably outscale you as well and have high mobility. Thus, you need to build mobility as well.
It's somewhat of a skill matchup early on when you're both trading Qs but you have better auto attack range. Once he gets his E, you can no longer safely auto attack and you have to juke to avoid his double shurikens. Thank god for seeker's armguard.
Irelia loses lane hard if you freeze. It's easy to land charms if she comes near you or you predict her dashes. you win the lane hard if she cant land her stun.
Your early waveclear and mana sustain is better. Celerity allows you to deal with his mobility.
You can't kill her pre-6. Once you have your ult, you can kill her even without landing your charm. Karma is significantly better in teamfighting, but she can't ever match your waveclear mid-late game and you do more damage.
You keep your distance with celerity and vlad can't land his spells. The only way he kills you is with his flash/ignite combo. You outrange him and win trades with scorch. If you can land your charm, he loses lane hard.
Anivia has no threat. She can't ever land her stun even with the wall if you have celerity. It becomes a farm lane after she hits 6
This is another skill matchup. If she lands her Q, she wins the trade, so you have to shove in the wave to avoid trades.
You have to freeze wave against katarina because she's too much of a threat near her tower. While your charm can cancel her ult, she's very slippery and can deal damage without her ult.
You have the range advantage and need to freeze the wave. It's much harder for her to land her E when you can just hide behind your minions near your tower. Her E is also a straight trajectory so that's a guaranteed charm. In her shroud, her movement speed increases, so you have to back off. She can kill you with her ulti, but you win trades if land your charm.
You have better early game waveclear and sustain. The only way veigar can kill you is if he stuns you in his cage before ulting. If you land charm, he's dead. Dont use ult unless you're sure you can kill him as he can immediately cage you.
You have better early game waveclear and once you have your ulti, you have kill potential. He can't ever kill you.
Another skill matchup. Ahri has better early game waveclear. You have to hide behind your minions to avoid her damage because she can kill you even without landing her bubble. You're more useful out of lane.
Kass will outscale so you have to put him as far behind pre-6. If he runs TP, he will be even in lane. To beat him out of lane, you need enough mobility so he can't land his ult on you.
A fed ahri with a yuumi on her is unstoppable.You're already fast on your own, but now you're faster and have slows. It's like you're playing ahri with both electrocute and glacial. Eventually, you run out of mana, but this combo is strong.
