Threats & Synergies
Better all-in than you if you miss E, and his dash makes it very easy to escape your feathers.
His E is very effective at escaping your feathers but he doesn't have as good all-in as you. If he is hit by any kind of hard-cc in lane he should die or be forced to use summs.
Has no way to escape feathers, has bad all-in compared to you, poke is manageable.
Immobile besides his passive. Can't escape your feathers as well as some, but still can. You have pretty evenly matched all-ins, watch out for trades with 4th shot.
Has an easy time escaping feathers with both E and R, has better close up all in, the only saving grace is your R up close to makes sure she doesn't get full plasma stacks off.
Draven is just horrible for Xayah. He has better all in and can win all trades with double axes, has good mobility from W making it very easy to escape your feathers, his E can knock you away from where you want to recall your feathers, and currently he scales better than you pretty much no matter what.
Her poke currently with dark harvest is too much for xayah to handle. If you can pin her down without her using her W, you have a chance of killing her. Other than that, if she hits you with a dark harvest crit Q you pretty much can't fight for a while 2v2 or 1v1 without losing, guaranteed. Good news is that she doesn't scale as well as you or other adcs.
His all-in isn't anywhere near as good as yours, and he is completely immobile meaning he can't dodge your feathers. Even your Q + E combo stacks up against his W empowered autos. He is very weak early on and at lvl 3 he should be an easy kill no matter what.
Has some matched all in potential with blight stacks especially with rageblade but not as much as you. He is immobile, so he can't dodge quick roots. In this scenario, i'd just say whoever gets cc'd in 2v2 first loses. Xayah's ult can be used in varus' ult however.
Her Q can constantly help her dodge her feathers but early on it isn't up that often. Your all-in is better than her's pre-6. After that, it's pretty evenly matched.
Her poke is very annoying for you, Thankfully, she doesn't have much mobility at all so you should be able to pin her down. Her all-in isn't very good without headshot up at least once. She can abuse the huge range advantage.
Pretty tough matchup, she can dodge your feathers with her W often, her all-in is really good. If she dodges your E, you lose.
This matchup is pretty even. Before first back, you have the better all-in. After that, she has the better all-in taking into account her support engages for her.
He is very immobile and it takes him a while to get his damage out. You can easily pin him down and kill him early before his first item.
