First Strike Manakai

By NoticesRito
Start of Game
Start the game by going into single bush, when throwing a little dude into the brush ahead
If they are in it, they get hit, if they're not you get vision
If they aren't in the bush, keep pushing up as you throw dudes for vision. Either you end with a stack on manaflow and gold or you have an uncontested invade
Also if you don't make it into single Bush in time and you're on the right side, you can throw little dudes from drake den into the brush behind it
Laning phase
Play laning phase safe, play defensive with your little fellas in bushes and try to lure enemies inside
Only go aggressive with little dudes when you have a manaflow band stack up and need to proc it
With limited engages this should get you through laning phase with extra gold, no matter if you won or lost it
Late Game
After this, you have 3 main goals, teamfights, vision, and ruining somebody's life
During teamfights act as a face tank, rooting the team with your ult at you go in
Your little dudes also grant vision, so place them around the jungle in bushes to secure free poke and easy vision
Finally, the most important part, ruining somebody's life
When a drake fight comes around, or if you just feel like it. Find a bush that an enemy is likely to walk past
When it comes to drake fights, single Bush is good if the enemy is on left side, while the bushe to the right of single bush is good for enemies on the right
With your large max health and cdr, you can stack about 10 or so guys in a busy before they start dying. In my experience 6 is all you need to kill a squishy
So once you see a drake coming in 30 seconds, start trapping and you will almost guarantee get a kill or at the worst half health a crucial tank for the fight
