Stack mres, become impossibly tanky so the enemy AP can't hurt you, get AP while doing so and go to town.

He gets AP from stacking MR

If he stacks MR, he both increases his damage and decreases their damage

If a non-Galio stacks MR, they get no damage but decreased damage

Furthermore -
Galio's QW combo can outpush many AP champions, forcing them to have to waste mana on trying to get last hits. It makes last hitting on champions that aren't someone like Anivia really hard, and Galio usually is very high on mana due to Chalice and/or blue buff.

For one, His passive gives him half his MR in AP. This means he can directly counter the enemy AP's damage while still dealing damage.

His kit is also generally very good against APs (he can heal back damage easily and he has a high damage slow that's pretty crippling), giving him a lot of control over the lane.

His ult forces people to auto-attack him, again, countering enemy AP carries.

The one issue he has is the fact that he can be easily run out of mana, but a chalice or blue buff will fix that.

Galio such a stupid champion :/

So much utility and free stats. Very strong champion with a high skill cap. You could play at a good level, or you could play at Alex Ich's level and get 466 CS and get 8 kills in a 36 minute game :/
