Threats & Synergies
Only engage when she just used her passive stun charge ability. Short trades with one auto + Q will apply your passive allowing you to run away before she out trades
When zed ults, he will appear on the opposite side of you, so don't swing backwards or he will collide with you and stop you
His healing and stun make him a hard counter. When you try to swing away expect him to ult onto you to stop it
Pantheon counters AD assassins mid and especially Akshan because he can stun you when you try to swing away
Her bubble stops your swing so be sure to E away quickly or get behind cover if she hits it on you
Vel'Koz will try to knock you up right after you swing onto them so dodge the knockup and out trade
Your early game damage should be able to create a mid diff before Kayle gets strong
Champion Build Guide
Your wave clear is not good until you get some attack speed and Kraken so your only hope to win lane is to engage enemy mid laner and force them out allowing you to push wave and roam.
Play the rest of the laning phase as an assassin, pushing wave and looking to fight with jungler or gank lanes with W stealth.
It is always worth to dive the low health scoundrel to revive 2 or more teammates or the jungler if you think there's a chance your team can contest objectives.
