Threats & Synergies
Place good wards, stay calm, this is the most tilting matchup you can have, malz isn't hard to beat alone but he can ignore you and wait for ganks. Rushing qss is an option, but remember it stops your build and makes you weaker, I prefer to save it for later in the game.
Stressing lane, stay calm and focus on dodging his cage, dodge his ghosts and clean them fast, if he release his R, try to kill her fast.
Just farm and pay attention to her Q's, don't fight early, with protobelt you stomp her, this match is about recognizing you are a lot weaker than her so you need to focus on avoid her Q's or her W, if you get hit by one of theese, just ran away from her and maintain distances, farm the best you can and wait for you 6 to have a chance on nuking cassiopeia, if not, rush protobelt and then the lane changes a lot, because you can stick to her to deal your full combo while you can avoid her R with your pool.
For me ori is just a weaker cassiopeia, almost the same matchup style, you need to keep this in mind, ori is a lot stronger than you in trades because she can poke you while you can't, she has better range, she has an slow, a shield and her aa's deal more dmg than yours, you can't win any trade if bot are equal. So, what you can do? stay moving always, don't let ori poke you so easy, take atention on where to try to poke her, when she wastes her Q on minions, when you dodge her Q or when you can use your empowered Q, if you just can't beat her, then theres an easy way, just rush protobelt the fast you can and then you can beat her, because her counter to vlad comes from the facility to punish you while you can't right? so, if you can get her with protobelt and stick to her, shes's done, and you can also pool her R, so whos getting countered now? this match, like cassiopeia is just a mental match, you need to stay calm and focused on dodging shit and finding your doors to poke and try to win, if you can't just use the easy way getting your proto.
Really hard matchup, aatrox is just way stronger than vlad, so, respect him and play focused on farming while you dodge aatrox poke. move to sides to dodge or cancel his chain, respect his dives, he can ignore the turret and kill you if you are low hp.
Just focus on cleaning the wave, ask for help and rush protobelt, it makes it a lot easier.
