Shaco, what is he good for?

Hey guys, Finally racked up enough points to get myself a Champion, I'm thinking of playing with Shaco (Likes melee>ranged). What is he good for? Champ Killer? Mob control? etc?

and What other champ do you think is better than shaco (similar playing style)
You: Can I haz a gum?

Champion Killer and with some control thrown in if you can use his Jack in the Box right.

Shaco's usefulness ir arguable. I personally don't like Shaco because he has very little synergy with other heroes. In pugs- he can destroy but not in organized play.

Sometimes you can become so predictable you become unpredictable

Make sure you get at least 1 point in Jack in the Box.. the fear is devastating to enemy teams.

Absolutely Nothing!

but in all seriousness, same as Eve, dominates low level pubs, not too useful against people who can comprehend how to play against enemies with stealth (buying elixirs/wards, expecting them to be around even if you don't see them, etc.)

Protip: Put your ping on him so when he splits, you know which one is him.

Get your summoner to level 30 then fill your rune book with +crit dmg -> enjoy one shooting non-tank champions ;)
