Akali beats you up essentially until you get items. Build [icon=Rod of Ages size=30] RoA if you aren't beating her up earlier on in lane, and can afford it, for extra HP + scaling. You outscale her, so as long as you aren't getting stomped in laning, you should be able to win against her.
Skill matchup; dodge her charms and you should be fine. You outkite her a ton!
Rough time for Cass; Annie out-pokes you easily early game without wasting mana, while Cass has trouble keeping up that tempo given her mana-costs pre-[[Archangel]]. Get your jungler to gank you, and make sure you know when her stun comes up!
A skill matchup slightly in her favor. Try to use your Miasma (W) every time she throws out her Q on you. This way she cannot immediately use her dash to get to you. This can be difficult to predict, though, given that her Q E can come out a lot faster than your W.
One word; Miasma. You can out kite him, prevent him from dashing, out trade him, etc. by dodging his skillshots, and forcing a zone on him with your miasma. Post-6 you can even miasma to prevent him from ulting!
Slightly in Galio's favor, by the nature that he is an anti-magic tank. He does a lot of damage to you at most stages of the game, and he out-roams you easily. Try to force trades with him early with your AAs & Q Es, and try to keep him stuck in your miasma any time he tries to walk up to you.
You can outkite her & miasma her to prevent her mobility from being effective. A good Irelia player is always scary, but you have so much counterplay to this champion, it's essentially a skill matchup in your favor.
Skill matchup, slightly in your favor. You can force miasma or Q onto her dagger positions, you can outkite/position her, and you can R her in her ultimate. Be aware that if she turns around before pressing R on you, she will *not* be turned to stone!
