Threats & Synergies
Since you're both playing the same champion, it's just a skill matchup.
Try to make sure to poke her early game with Aery. Make sure you do your best to not let her roam since her getting super ahead of your will doom you.
Try to avoid his Q and E. If possible save your Charm until he doesn't have E up. Getting help from your Jungler can play a huge role in this matchup. It's also super easy for him to get ahead since you can't follow him if he roams.
Whenever I fight Anivia, I try to farm up and play for teamfights. You probably won't be able to kill her if she has egg up, but if she doesn't then you should be able to burst her down.
For this matchup, I like to take Cleanse or Barrier for her burst. Always try and go in when she has no stacks. Also be wary of Tibbers' boosted attack speed after she dies.
You shouldn't die to him early. Try to get poke on him. If he doesn't have E up you can win in a 1v1 as long as you use your R to reposition yourself away from his Q.
Another farming matchup. If possible save your R in case of ganks and him ulting you so you're able to ult over his soldiers.
Skill matchup. Try and make plays with your Jungler to kill her. If you try and go in chances are you'll die. Her W makes it so you can't ult away. Unless you're fed, late game you lose to her 1v1.
Try your best to avoid his poke and you should be fine. You have the advantage early game so use it.
Do your best to avoid her Q and poke her with Aery. If you're near your tower and she Es towards you try to ult towards your tower, as her E will follow you to wherever you ult. I prefer taking Barrier for her burst.
Best to try and get picks pre-6. If he roams try to follow him. If possible you should always try to kill him when his ult is down.
Farm and poke. Do NOT go into Q range or else you'll die. You have the advantage pre-6, but from level 6 on he does. If you can rush Stopwatch and Zhonya's for his ult. Don't try and E him if he has his E up. Play around your Jungler.
Pretty easy matchup. Focus on farming and poking. If he tries to dash towards you, you should be able to charm him and get a combo off. Aery and Electrocute are both good.
Poke can get annoying but that's all he can do. Watch for the enemy Jungler and try to roam bottom or top for picks.
HEAVY skill matchup. Stay close-ish to your low health minions. Chances are she'll dash to those which gives you an opportunity to poke her. Watch out for her E.
Easy to deal with pre-6 but if he gets slightly ahead he can 1v1 you no issue.
Watch for her daggers. Try and watch for a pattern in her dashes. Use it to your advantage and punish her whenever she Es. Zhonya's is good for her ult.
Save your E for when her W is down. If she Qs then Ws you, she'll probably go back to her W instantly. Aim your charm in the direction of her W.
As long as you're wary of her ult, you can win this easily. Watch out for her Q. It's pretty easy to move out the way of her E and W.
I prefer to take Cleanse in this matchup to make sure she can't Q + R you. If her Q is down then you can probably get a combo off.
Don't try to all-in him if he has ult. Try and poke him every so often so that his shield doesn't come up. Stay far-ish from your minions so that his E doesn't spread to you.
As long as you don't get snared, this matchup is easy. Saving your ult for hers or buying Zhonya's is a good idea.
Easy matchup. Watch her ball movement and try to ult out of hers.
Very hard matchup (IMO). If you time it just right, your E can stop his stun. Probably one of my least favorite matchups. Play around your Jungler and for teamfights.
You can stop her dash with your E which is fairly easy. Most of the time you'll be able to get a full combo off if she tries to E you.
Can be very hard to fight late game. Early game, focus on poking him. When he tries to stun you throw your E out. It won't stop him from getting pulled to you, but it will give you a chance to get a full combo off.
One of Ahri's counters. Watch her ball position and try to not let her stun you. Getting Zhonya's is very good for her ult.
Lane wise, you can win this easily. You can cancel his Q with your Charm. Where it gets tricky is him roaming. Try to force him to stay in lane. If he's able to roam, you can't follow him due to his E. Zhonya's is good.
I like to go Cleanse against him. Try to not get caught in his cage. When you go in, try to Ult out of his cage while it's spawning.
Her poke is fairly easy to avoid but be wary of her roaming and her passive. Try not to get too close to her when you ult so she can't get Gloom off of you and damage you with her W.
He's in between a major and even threat. You can't do much against him and if he gets ahead it's pretty much over.
If you can dodge most of his skills, it'll probably be a minor or even threat, but knowing myself and other Silver Surfers that probably won't be the case. If he misses his E and he's low, that's your que to go in.
Try and proc shield whenever you can. Use your W movement speed to help dodge his Q3. Zhonya's is a good second item for him. I personally like Liandrys against him because the burn can proc his shield.
Probably an even matchup for higher elo's but that's not me. Try and remember that when he ults you, he always ends up behind you. Rush armguard and Zhonya's second.
Pretty relaxed matchup. Watch for his bombs and you'll be fine.
Another Cleanse matchup. Using your E for whenever she teleports is easy since you know exactly where she's gonna be. Watch for Qs and Es.
