Threats & Synergies
He has a lot of CC, and his ult is not something to take lightly of. If you think he is about to go on your ADC throw out a Q to where you ADC is, that way when he Headbutts your ADC you can catch him midair, and he will be CC'd. You can also Flay him to cancel his Headbutt. Make sure you peel for your ADC and you can win this matchup.
Her empowered E, deals a lot of damage in the mid-late game. Be wary of that, and make sure when you go in on your Q, you leave a lantern behind, or you have flash up, as if you decide to tower dive, and she walls you then you will not be able to get a good dive off, and most likely end up being dead.
She has a built in Mallet. When you go in, make sure you can kill her, as if she kites you, not only do you lose health, but because of her slow, you can't do anything, that includes walking up to her or deciding to run away. So if you decide to Q in on Ashe, make sure you can kill her.
It is really hard to deal with Brand's poke early game, and he has a stun constantly up. Thresh's Magic Resist is not the greatest, so he can easily get popped by a brand. CC Brand into oblivion, and ask for jungle gank. Remember, he has no escapes, so if you burn his flash, next gank he will be as dead as dead can be.
He has to walk up to take a minion for his Relic Shield Proc. Punish him. Braum is not the damage dealer, so focus ADC, then focus Braum. You will win every time.
Because you will have your Guardian rune, you will need to stay close to your ADC. Bard's can take advantage of that. and throw out his Q, CCing both you and your ADC. His auto's also when he has his meeps deal a good amount of poke. However, his only escape is his Magical Journey. You can easily get him out of their using your flay, or your Q. Fairly easy matchup, just watch out for his poke.
His Q is extremely quick, and it gives you little to no time to react. You would need to predict it, and if your ADC get's caught, it will be really hard to follow up or save him, as your ADC will be constantly CC'd.
She is a lot like alistar. She needs to land her E to root you. When she lands her E, immediately flay her, to cancel her root. You can do this for your ADC the same, if he is also caught by Leona's root too.
