Threats & Synergies
cho'gath is not that strong but late game he can be a threat for his insane health and his execute.
fiora can be oppressive but if you build anti heal and some health you can outscale her, always try to outfarm her so you can be ahead of her. i think the brusier build is better against her.
aatrox will mostly win early game but the right plays and items can destroy him. both the tank and brusier builds can be good here.
irelia can be fine early game but towards the late game you will die to her. try to outfarm her and try to cheese some kills on her. i reccomend taking the tank build against her.
garen can be annoying early game but you can outscale him. play safe against him early game. both builds can be good here.
akali can be annoying but if you play it safe you can outscale her and destroy her, i would reccomend taking the tank build here.
mundo is tanky, deals fine damage and slow you so try and dodge his q or build antislow. try to outfarm him so you can be ahead of him. i think the brusier build can be good here.
jax is annoying early game but in mid game he becomes a beast, but if you push the game towards the late game he will be not that good. i recommend the tank build against him.
camile can be annoying to deal with but if you can play safe and out farm her you can win, both tank and brusier builds can be good here.
gwen can be fine in lane but in the late game she will kill you and quick. try to deny her scaling so she will be useless.
akshan completly counters you with the shield, range, and E mobility can outscale you and kill you quickly.
darius is extremly aggresive early game which can lead to a big snowball so try to not take any uneccecry fights against him early game because you will most likely die to him.
gangplank can be really oppressive early game and even 2 shot you late game, try to stay as safe as possible. the tank build is 100% the choice here so you dont get oneshoted by him late game.
gnar is annoying to deal with, he is mobile, tanky, deals damage and ccs you. all of that while being most of the time a range champion. 100% avoid him at all cost and if you do end up laning against him, prey.
graves is a no go. do not lane against him you can not beat him. he builds ~30% lifesteal and has 126 armor in his base kit so to you he is unkillable.
illaoi is tanky, deals % max health damage and can poke you from a far. so you cant really play against her, try to not lane against her at all costs.
