Threats & Synergies
Alistar is a threat level as he has lockdown CC and a good Alistar will be able to hit you as you E making it useless, however he will not be impossible to face as you have lots of damage and your W allows you to heal off of him, his lack of mobility allows him to be an easy target for this ability as well.
Blitzcrank is a challenge as he will try and mess up your E making it harder to land however it is fairly simple to avoid this with skill. You will be able to do a lot more damage than he is doing and if you dodge his hook this matchup is very easy.
Morgana is a very hard matchup as she does a lot of damage, her binding will inable you to engage, her W will do a lot of damage to you and if you are low health it will force you to use your E to escape, and her spellshield will be a pain against almost all of your abilities especially if she shields your target it'll make your engage a lot less in impact. Her ultimate is easily escapable by using your dash however it causes you to burn it so it is still an issue.
Not a threat, very squishy. Doesn't have a means of escape, dodge her ultimate and she doesn't have a way to stop you. Your e+q+aa+q+w combo will take her health down a large marginal.
Caitlyn's traps and high damage are truly her only advantage over you. She will be a lot more able to put her traps down when she sees you on the wall and will be able to predict where you are going for the most part rendering your engages useless. Other then that she is fairly easy to take down as she is squishy.
Very squishy, focusing her will be to your benefit. All she is capable of doing is healing your ADC, but you can take her out in seconds with the help of your ADC and she is out of the equation. A lockdown with your R and she is nearly guaranteed to die.
Wait for Bard to burn his Q and he will be vunerable. Nothing about this matchup is anything Camille cannot handle. He only has one ability that renders you useless and this is his ultimate, he can easily ultimate yours making your prison be for waste, as you will be cc'd the entire duration.
Zyra does a lot of damage and is a matchup where you will have to show your skill a lot more. However if you wait for her to burn her E then there is nothing she can do to hurt you, only your squishy ADC. You should use that to your benefit and go in on her. However a very good Zyra will take this opportunity to cast her plants in front of you when you are engaging making your dash cancel.
Annie is a support you probably will have trouble with post-6, however pre-6 she has a very unreliable stun that you can avoid by noticing a red bar. If she is under 3 stacks you should engage as much as possible on her and try and poke. If she has 3 or more stacks then she can get her stun up with her combo and you will have burned yours and will be at a disadvantage. It's all about paying attention to her and you shall be very well off. Post-6 avoid her if Tibbers has not been used, but if Tibbers is active take it as an opportunity to go in on her if Tibbers focus is on something else.
Potentially Camille's biggest lane counter. Her anti-dash abilities, high tank build, ultimate knockup/knockback, and tackle. She has a kit that is stronger than yours and makes a lot of your abilities useless, if not all of them. She will be a pain the entire laning phase. Going against her and suceeding will be based purely off what opportunities you take to kill their ADC.
His shield can be annoying and his Q, however his Q is easy to dodge. You will want to wait for his shield to be down and go in on his ADC. Poking him is useless as he will be very tanky and he has a dash and can jump away from your dash or W, which will just be the waste of your spell.
