Threats & Synergies
She's got massive kill potential if she can hit her skills. Avoid her E and you should be able to kill her easily. Don't lead in with your R. Try and stun with your Q before unleashing your combo on her because she can easily dodge with her R.
Syndra basically outranges you with all her skills. She's got extreme kill pressure and she definitely wins level 6 if she hits you with her stun.
Major problem for Annie. You can't trade with him because his Q gives him a MR shield. Play passively, but even then he still has high kill pressure. I would definitely go Banshee's or some kind of MR item first.
She can zone you out pretty hard with her Q. Try to avoid the areas where her Q (ball) is located. Trading with her will be difficult because she has a shield and can Q + W you for free since you're in range. Try to Q(stun) into W and walk away before she has time to get into range for her combo.
She's got a nasty trade. Avoid her Q and W and try to CS with auto attacks since Annie has the longest auto range out of all mages. If she hits any of her skills on you, you will be poisoned. This means that her E will do more damage and heal her.
Zed's difficult to lane against solely because of his insane kill potential. This is match-up will be based on skill. If he all ins you, try to stun him with your R when he gets out of his ultimate animation. Zed will always appear behind you so you can try to W stun him as well if you don't have R. Rush Armguard or Zhonya's for this match up if you want to negate his ultimate damage which will surely kill if he lands all his skills.
Lux's damage is heavily based on skillshots. If you can dodge her skills, especially her Q, you should be able to kill her with your combo. If you find yourself unable to dodge her skills, build a Banshee's and it should help your survivability against her combo.
Same thing as Lux, if you can avoid her E then this match up should be easy. Avoid all-in's with your R because she can dodge it easily. Try to lead in with Q stun into your combo.
Talon is like a watered down version of Zed. Try to dodge his blades and auto him when he tries to CS. If he gets close, Q stun followed by W and an auto attack should help win your lane.
Pre-6 Akali is super weak. Auto attack her as much as you can when she comes up to CS. If you have Stun, Q + W her when she tries to CS. Build MR if she becomes a problem late game. If your team has CC, Akali shouldn't be a problem.
Katarina is an easy match up for Annie because your stun will negate the damage from her R. Build MR if you're having trouble against her in lane or if she becomes a problem late game.
Karthus is super squishy and should be an easy lane as long as you dodge his skill shots. He's weak early, but gets super annoying if he reaches late game.
