Threats & Synergies
Single biggest threat to you in lane. Olaf does more damage to you as he gets lower on health so fighting is already an uphill battle. His ult negates yours and his speed will make it hard to run back to tower if your caught. Rush armor and wait for jg help
Out damages you post 6. His passive will negate your shield and you will die. play safe
Her speed and healing will make it hard for you to duel. A well place riposte can stun you from your E. A god tier riposte will negate your ult. Rush bramble vest and play safe
A skillful Rengar will out damage you and his empowered W will negate your ult. Combine this with a smart JG and they will shut your lane down
His R will negate your R and he will usually come out winning
His E will allow him to dodge your abilities and he can usually do a full combo and E out before you can do anything. His healing will make it tough and his dive potential is high
Moakai lacks the damage or the movement speed to run from you. Use your R to dodge his ult and go in for an easy kill
Post Lv3 he fails to out damage you. Your ult will negate his. Walk all over him.
Perfect on all melee characters. Just don't leave him to die when you ult
Her CC and spell shield will make you unstoppable
A gank from Nocturne will almost always get you a kill. Engage with your ult and whittle them down. Nocturne can then clean up with his ult or vice versa

Some hard matchups
*Look to hit lv6 first and all in them with Realm of Death
*If you are ganked, use Realm of Death to dodge abilities like a nunu snowball. Usually, R the person you can kill OR R the person who cant kill you. Then retreat to the edge of shadow realm and ping for help.
*Once you heave your first item, if you are even or ahead, you will be able to crush any melee characters even with their jgler. Use this to dominate lane and carry your lead.
*If you ult a master Yi for example, do not look to fight unless your know you can win. Pop your full shield and Zhonyas while your team wins the teamfight outside.
*Ulting a nunu will mean his ult only affects you. ulting an illioa will remove all her tentacles from the map.
*ulting the Jgler will negate them from smiting drag/baron.
*once you have your passive active, you can zhonyas in the middle of a fight for massive AOE damage. Works best with Rylais + Liandrys
*ult either defensively to peel your team/ADC, or offensively to pick an out of place carry.
*Use Death's Grasp in front of you while someone is chasing to pull them away from you. This may sometimes save your life.
*Master your ult and know when to use it. Remember your ult steals base stats, so use it when the enemy laner is their strongest, IE Aatrox ult, nasus ult, renekton ult.
*Dodge skill shots with a well timed ult
*If your caught out of place, ulting the weakest enemy can be beneficial. ulting the support will land you the kill and buy you time for team mates to arrive.
* Realm of Death locks down opponents. Think when this can be useful. Stop a TF or shen Ult. Prevent a Zac from entering baron pit ETC
*Your ult removes everything except the two champions and structures. If someone wants to dive you, ult them under your tower to eliminate their minion wave. Seek to do aggressive damage as your tower shoots 1-2 shoots at them. this can usually force them to back
*While sieging the nexus, you can end the game by ulting the support and then continue hitting the nexus inside shadow realm. The support will not be able to do anything
