PROS
As any other champion do, Sylas has Pros aswell.
    ✔Multiple powerspike - even in early game.
    ✔High AP ratio scale on abilites.
    ✔Hyper scaling into mid game, high scaling to end game, and the opportunity to infinitly scale.
    ✔Various choice of items. This means you have the freedom to be a classy mage, a one-shoting burst assassin, a solid duelist or a tanky engager.
    ✔Possibility to deal with most kind of champion cast in late game.
    ✔Colorful base kit as you have a:
    ⭐Q = A medium-high range poking ability with a delayed slow and burst damage.
    ⭐W = A distance closer with a strong healing and burst damage on it.
    ⭐E = And a two-parted third ability where's the first part allows you to freely cross places, walls, engage or disengage, and a second part which allows you to catch up and at the same time place crowd controll - "airbone" - on the hit target for a short period.
    ✔The ability to steal any enemy's ultimate - as many as 164 different variant - making you the most unpredictable champ.
    ✔Treated very good by RIOT.
CONS
As any other champion do, Sylas has Cons aswell.
    ✘Melee range.
    ✘High mana cost in early game.
    ✘High mana requirements overall.
    ✘Damage depends mostly on skill-shots, making him even harder.
    ✘Huge number of lane counters caused by Sylas's weak early phase.
    ✘Too unreliable to blind pick it. Thanks to the number of counters and the number of champions the enemy can pick which have unusably bad ultiamtes.
    ✘If you are in big disadvantage/fell behind the scaling will not save you. It is very hard to come back.
    ✘The requirement to learn every champions's ultimate ability and the possible combos and outcomes with them.
THREATS & SYNERGIES
In the "THREATS & SYNERGIES":
The Synergies are the rating of the other champions' ultimate abilites - on a 1 to 5 scale.

[1 = None | 2 = Low | 3 = Ok | 4 = Strong | 5 = Ideal]

One of the most controversial thing about Sylas is which Ultimate Abilities should he steal and use.

The Threats are the rating of how hard to play against as Sylas - on a 1 to 5 scale.

[1 = Tiny | 2 = Minor | 3 = Even | 4 = Major | 5 = Extreme]

Currently this part is under construction!
IN-DEPTH RUNES
Sylas is a very colorful champion, and it shows in the rune builds too. He can adapt to almost every rune mastery and shard.

Precision

Patch after patch it is getting weaker on Sylas. Sylas turnt into a short-trading assassin, meaning he got less ideal for longer fight. Short fights means he can't utilitise Conqueror enough. It's still a solid pick and it is recommended aganist tanks, bruisers and most fighters. (So it's mostly used on Top lane Sylas.)

It's getting less and less popular, similar case with Conqueror. However, with the rise of poking, high range bully mages on mid, it can be a solid pick for a safer, sustained, farm focused laning phase.

Presence of Mind
Huge pick for helping Sylas's mana problems, providing a longer, stronger and safer lane for him.
Legend: Tenacity
One of the main counter and stopping force aganist Sylas is crowd control. With Tenacity, you reduce the time and strength of the slowing and locking up.
Last Stand
With the healing buff on his W under a certain amount of hp this rune shard will provide suprisingly strong sustain, and you may survive the unsurvivable.


Domination

Easily the best rune for the Season 14 items. Sylas can proc it even if he misses every abilites thanks to his fast passive auto-attacks that has 3 stacks. Providing high burst in a short trade is a low risk high reward rune for Sylas.

With the crazy builds comes crazy runes. Predator is breaking high in high elo - "wow you good#KR1" being on of the pioneer of this pick. It grants bonus movement speed that is good for positioning and a small but strong burst on impact.

It is not a suprise that Dark Harvest is a very popular choice on Sylas - mainly in the jungle - because his insane scalings - with items and on abilities - makes him one shot almost anyone who is not a tank or juggernaut.
