Threats & Synergies
Very simple lane, the hardest part is getting her to stop moving, extremely mobile for a Syndra. She has great all in potential If your caught in her charm. Cleanse as a Summoner Spell can really help turn the tides. Be aware and be early in letting your team know when she roams. She can be devastating in her early roaming.
Fairly easy lane. Try not to get caught in her chains.
Difficult to lane against Talon. Dodge his blades, keep your distance, poke with range on W. I recommend rushing Rod of Ages & Hour glass.
Fairly easy lane. Poke with Range often, be cautious of all in damage potential at 6.
Fairly tough lane. Do what you can. Try to get 1 good early gank from your Jungler to really get ahead.
Dodge his Q's, Try to keep your distance. If he gets you in the center of his Stun, Put a stun right back on him with your E. This is also a good way for you to bait him into a kill for you. Be careful post-6.
An absolute dream match up. Heimerdingers turrets can be continually thrown back at him through your whole laning phase. Dodge his Rockets & Stun. This lane should be a cake walk for you.
Pretty tough lane. You'll dominate him Pre-6, Post-6 I recommend being very careful unless you have Zhonya's Hourglass. Also recommend building Rod of Ages here. Remember he can juke your ult.
Very easy lane matchup. Try to deny farm and push the lane aggressively with proper warding to limit his roaming.
Not a hard lane by any means but tough If you do get hit by stun. He has great damage pre-6 and It only gets better with his Ult. Dodge his Stun, Dodge his Pillars.
You can dominate this lane Pre-6, be mindful of her all in and diving potential once 6.
Not a tough lane at all. If your going to all in, remember not to get your Ult blocked by his Wind Wall.
Orianna can be tough. Many times she may come with Barrier when laning against you. Be Mindful of her Spell Shield as well as Barrier when you all in her. She does have great all in potential Post-6. Try to harass her more than she does you.
This should be a Laning Phase that you don't dominate from Minute 1. When he moves his Sand Soldiers, just get out of the way and poke him again. His Q has a pretty high CD until he starts getting his CDR so his soldiers won't be moving again. Can very easily be a First Blood for you. Try to deny his farm. The slower he ramps up, the better off your team is.
Recommend building Zhonya's & Rod of Ages. Can be tough in lane but can be out played early. Be mindful of his all in at 6 and the dive potential.

Hello! I'm Etyrnal. I've been playing league for almost 8 months now. I discovered Syndra when she was a free champion and I've loved her ever since. I know my current rank is quite low but I do feel for any new Syndra player this guide can help you immensely in learning her play style. I am continually updating this guide! Please feel free to leave comments! Thank you.
