Threats & Synergies
Even though Akali is listed in most counter sites/apps as a counter to Syndra, this is not really the case. Before lvl 6 just poke her, then, if she jumps on you you q e stun her, pick up the q with w, throw it and use another q. Now ult her and if youre not fed yet throw in an ignite, and shes dead.
This matchup can be difficult for both sides. On the one hand, before level 6 zed is extreamly voulnerable for harass, and you can easily bully him out of lane. on the other hand, post 6 if you want to combo him, he will just ult your ult, and if you try stunning him then he'll just swap with his ult shadow and come back with w. Try shutting him down completely pre 6, killing him once or twice with the help of your jungler. You need to be able to kill him without your ult, only harassing, q e w combos, kiting and aa's.
Personally, I think Yasuo is the hardest lane opponent for Syndra, because (if he is not a complete retard and has some reflexes) he can dodge every single one of your abilities with his dash or his wind wall. If he plays smart hell dash twoards your minion every time you want to q or w him, and he'll windshield every stun you want to throw at him. By the time you have ult hell just windwall that too. My suggestion: laneswap with your toplaner. You really dont want to risk this lane. And if you do, stay passive, farm under turret, wait for ganks...
