Threats & Synergies
You have to bait out her W ability. It's not unwinnable. But it is complex. She can out snowball you if you let her get ahead. Your W CD is significantly lower than her W. Once you bait it out try engaging her again before it comes back up.
Kaisa is definitely one of few champions who can out snowball you. Beware of letting her shove you in and then roaming for kills. She might not be able to kill you early. But if she gets ahead by even a little it can be a huge problem.
She has range. Lots of range. Again not impossible to win. If you have supports that can help lock her down so you can follow up with Gold card the lane is pretty easy. She likes to win early. Mid to Late you can still steamroll through her though despite lane phase setbacks.
Has better mobility. Better range/harass. Better early/mid/late sustain. I usually ban her.
Has better mobility. Better range/harass. Better early/mid/late sustain. I usually wish I had 2 bans so I could ban her.
She seems to build Lethality items lately. This means it's possible for her to end up having 2 spell shields. 3 if Morgana is supporting her. You can see why this would be a issue for your W Gold Card. Shut her down early and you have nothing to worry about. Early game you can bait her spell shield and go back in when your W is off CD since yours is lower.
She also has a ATK Speed enhancer. This means she is capable of trading with you. Once she has Q and E available she can be quite the nuisance. Still winnable. Bring a hard CC support if you want to all in her early. Beware of trying to 1v1 her alone outside of lane phase as well unless you're fed. If she lands full combo she can outburst you. Side step the jump. Press Heal early into the fight as she might build The Collector. You need yours to proc first.
Seems to not be a big issue. You can all in a lot better than her early. And her hard CC doesn't show up until level 6 which is when she really becomes a threat. Although her ability to perma slow might make it so the enemy JG picks you off in lane phase. Don't let her do this.
Her Q and R combo usually result in TF dying. Her E however is easy to work around. Bait out the E and go back in when your W comes up. Your W has a way lower CD than her E shield. Shut her down early and you won't have a problem.
The guy is both your best friend and enemy in lane depending on the side he is on. He constantly stealths in looking to combo and heals damage back up after you chase him away. If he lands combo early you usually die. If he lands combo while 6 you will definitely die. He's just too mobile while you aren't.
A good Xerath is BAD news. His W and Q's are extremely easy to land on TF who has short range. Every time you want to farm expect to have to dodge or get hit. I like going Noonquiver + Refillable as an ideal first back against him.
A decent brand will throw W on you every time you walk up to farm. But I guess that happens no matter who you play.
If you thought you had mobility issues now then wait until this guy pressed E on you or starts spamming bombs. It's also very hard to 2v1 snowball when he hands his teammate a free Guardian Angel right before you kill them.
In mid lane he feels like a bigger threat. With a support there he seems to punish you less often. Beware of his E trying to snare/pull you every time you would up to last hit a minion. Focusing him down first seems like a mistake most of the time because he likes to build a Stopwatch/Zhonyas. Don't stand in his ult while he uses those items. You can and should shut him down early.
She can take advantage of your short range early by W jumping on you when you go to last hit and then stunning you with her E. Her kit is pretty problematic for Twisted Fate. Side step the W and don't forget to avoid the E tether that will stun you as well. If shes ulting you then you might have to Gold Card her just to disengage. Which leaves the enemy ADC in a good spot to engage you.
Side step the W slow and don't step on the E Traps. Do these 2 things and your ATK Speed Enhancer should out DPS hers early on. Beware of her global ult when recalling. Always be ready to side step it. Don't shop and recall etc.
He can out range you with his poke. Thankfully the majority of it can be blocked by minions. Try to stand behind them when farming. He is capable of using his E right as your W Gold Card hits to still jump away. Try to gold card him when his E is on CD if possible. Beware of his global ult when recalling. Always be ready to side step it. Don't shop and recall etc.
This is a GOLD FARMING BUILD. This man provides crazy CC and burst potential with you. And his ULT shares the Gold. What's not to like about him. Plus you are both pretty good roam champs. Nobody likes seeing a Pyke uncloak as a TF teleports next to you with a Gold card.
All around good at engaging or protecting you. More stuns so more fun.
Same logic as Leona. More stuns so more fun. Great at engaging or peeling.
His ability to point click stun someone synergizes well with your stuns. Both of you can TP respond to situations on the map with ULT. Mid laners hate when bot lane just appears behind them.
Pretty similar to Leona and Nautilus. However I feel as if her abilities are a bit easier to dodge at times. And I like the hard CC ults more that the others bring. But she is still incredibly solid for peeling/engaging. Especially if you need someone to break shields for you. Rells Q is underappreciated. She can bust a Sett/Morgana shield for you which is pretty nice.
I mention this guy because it's always nice to have a back up APC. His stun cage is pretty fun to play around. Even if they don't get hit by it your gold card can set him up for big damage still as they have no where to run to avoid your W. Fun but not ideal.

Death from Below (Pyke Only)
All of these factors combined can cause you to snowball out of control in the blink of an eye. If you get ahead in lane then you power spike rapidly. If you get a little behind in game then you don't fall to far behind or you stay even. Remember that league of legends isn't won because of a good KDA. You can still give out 2 kills and be further ahead with your build if you farm up properly. Even if you have a bad lane phase you can come out on top winning all the team fights because of this build.
Hard CC with short CD.
Built in ATK Speed enhancer
Fourth auto does Hybrid Damage.
Ult is great for roaming
Ult is great for fighting stealth champs thus anti assassin
Good at 1v1 and team Fights
Short range without items

Mikaels Blessing exists
There is a few tips to consider here when playing ADC TF.
Most of the other ADCs in the game can not handle a level 1-5 fight with you.
You should be looking for opportunities to use E on the enemy laner when ever they walk up. Similar to how Jhin looks to land his 4th auto.
Use E + W Blue card to harass enemy laners or last hit the bigger canon minions for Gold
Use E + W Gold card to engage/disengage.
Use W Red Card to shove wave.
You last hit mostly with autos mixed with Blue and Red Card.
Use Blue Cards as often as possible when hitting a Tower.
Use Blue Cards to kill Herald/Dragon/Baron only when you feel safe to do so. You may need Gold Card if objectives are being contested. Teamfights happen.
Use Ult + W Gold Card to fight stealth champions in team fights or peel assassins off yourself.
Once you have The Collector you can use Q to pick up kills off low enemies.
Once you have Rapid FireCannon you can Gold Card people from much further away.
Triumph: helps you stay alive. It also grants additional Gold. Which is really what we are taking it for here. Later on it synergizes with the fact you will be building The Collector.
Alacrity: is simple enough. ATK Speed if VERY important on this build. You can find sustain elsewhere in items.
Coup De Grace: synergizes with executing people with the collector. In most early game fights your opponent will most likely start off stunned due to your Gold card. By the time they can even start to fight back Coupe De Grace has already kicked in helping you secure victory.
Magical Footwear: It's free Gold in your pocket. Spend more time power spiking your damage with the items you need. Spend Less time building mobility. Your champion is also one of the best roamers in the entire game. You should be able to find a good Ult thus securing kills and lowering the time these boots appear in your inventory.
Futures Market: is extremely synergetic with Twisted Fates passive. When others back and can only get a couple of long swords you will back and get Noonquiver. If the enemy team zones you out of your early cs and you're a little behind ...don't worry you can still buy Noonquiver! Not only is it difficult to set you back with this rune it's hard to stop you from snowballing as well.
Kraken: is a extremely powerful item on TF when leveling E. It provides a boat load of ATK Speed. Every 3 autos you will be doing AD/true damage. Every 4 AD/Magic damage. Grants all other items ATK Speed which is VERY important for your build.
The Collector: is a must have secondary item when going for a Gold Farming build. You will be taking the Triumph rune. The Collector really starts to make the Gold stack up when both passives are in play and thus helps you power spike in the mid game. It helps you execute people who barely "escape" with Q as well. Which normally your Q on an AD auto based build is useless. It helps reach that 40% crit mark and comes with decent AD.
Rapid FireCannon: is very important for you to survive in team fights or get solo picks. People will often underestimate your damage. They don't realize they are a quick Flash/RapidGoldCard away from being caught out. You might find yourself using TF ult to land next to someone. In my experience they might try to flash. Rapid FireCannon helps with this issue. It definitely makes your team fighting experience much smoother being able to play around it.
Blade of the Ruined King: provides some sustain and some much needed kite potential. It also makes you incredible at dueling. You should be ulting and trying to jump on solo people often. This makes the job so much easier. The damage is amazing as well.
Bloodthirster: is my preferred choice for a final item. It makes TF much more tanky when stacked with Blade of the Ruined King. It caps you off at 80% Crit. 32% Lifesteal. And a solid +215 AD total from items. Dueling you is madness.
Guardian Angel: is good for when you think "if only I had a better way to survive that burst" and the Bloodthirster isn't doing the job.
Mercurial Scimitar: is a decent option if they have heavy hard CC and are smart enough to focus you or you can't stop people from jumping on your back line so you have to peel for yourself.
Lord Dominik: might be worth it to help kill those Anti AD tanks.
Mortal Reminder: honestly it's better if you have a enchanter support who can give you Grievous with Chemtech Putrifier. You lose some decent damage for building it.
An Ideal first back is having 1200+ Gold in your pocket. If you are being out poked by a Xerath/Brand/Caitlyn you can do the Anti Poke First Back listed above to help you farm. You are looking to rush Noonquiver + Dagger if possible. Then rush to build a full Kraken but if you can grab that early Dagger as well after Noonquiver you can use it to make your Berserker's Greaves later on down the road. And the extra Dagger ATK Speed works really well on TF early.
After you complete a Kraken I suggest buying a Cloak of Agility as soon as possible. Then complete your Berserker's Greaves. Rushing Cloak will give you 35% crit chance. This is a decent mini power spike. You should also be looking to use your ULT to gank mid lane or help your jungler around the time you buy Kraken.
From there complete The Collector. Then buy a Zeal. Turn that into a Rapid Firecannon. Then secure a Vamp Scepter. Turn that into a Blade of the Ruined King. Ideally I'd grab the BF sword for the Bloodthirster next. But if I couldn't then i'd grab the Cloak of Agility. Good Luck!
I just started my ranked journey for the first time in 2 years and so far I have a 56% winrate playing ADC TF. So it goes without saying I am really having fun with the build. And I hope you give it a shot and have fun as well. Check me out on stat tracking sites to see how i'm doing. If others find a way to maybe improve the build or want to offer suggestions leave it in the comments down below!
