Threats & Synergies
Extremely strong early game and destroys you in the laning phase.
Again, a strong lane bully with high mobility to dodge your abilities and autos while dealing high burst damage to you during laning phase.
Reliable damage and good ability to trade with some form of mobility. A winable match up if played correctly.
The high mobility and poke of ezreal has the potential to bully you hard and win trades but due to him needing scaling the match up can easily go in your favour.
An immobile adc that is reliant on items and auto attacks, with your ability to wave clear and trade better this a solid matchup for Xayah.
Like Ashe, varus offers no mobility and is dependent on items and mana to be reliable, play around your passive to poke them down will applying pressure to the lane.
Overall look at build
Black cleaver offers 20% CDR that is extremely handy as this guide focuses on your abilities more so then auto attacks, again this item means you can totally shred any tank thats tried to dive or cc you as well as having additional health to keep you alive
Lastly frozen mallet aids your kiting potential even further due to its passive, can be used to disengage oncoming enemies like tanks or hunt down squishies and land your stun more easily. Again the additional health makes sure it takes more then a zed ult to kill you.
If you need more damage an Infinity Edge + a zeal item (PD or RFC) is a good way to round out the build, or you can replace the IE with an essence reaver for the maxed out CDR. Even more so a Blood Thirster is a classic choice offering high damage, high sustain and a beneficial passive in the shield.
