Not especially fun, nor good at roaming. Good burst overall and high skillcap, but not too many people enjoy her.

Syndra's burst damage is very high but requires a certain amount of setup, which means she's definitely not a LB style burst mage, who unloads everything at once and ends up looking at a smoldering corpse

The good news is that her setup takes the form of damaging poke and can potentially enable her to perform some devastating CC in teamfights (keyword being potentially - actually utilizing this stun effectively will take practice).

Since when is Syndra considered oldschool?

Have you looked at her kit?

Syndra plants orbs with her Q ability. The more of these orbs there are on the field, the more damaging her ult becomes.

Generally Syndra's strategy with bursting in lane is to poke with Q (which provides the aforementioned setup) and wait for a chance to go all in. This will usually be with a jungler, since her stun is hard to land.

Syndra is super fun but you will more then likely feel gimped a little.

One of my favorite picks for fun right now (and its not super hard to do well with her since most people don't know her that well).

Edit: I don't know what makes someone good at roaming but she can push pretty well and since I feel the need to build some mana regen on her anyway (like lux) its not usually a problem for me to manage my mana well even in normals where you can't count on blue).

She's fun, super strong in lane, but falls off like a brick once teamfights happen.

She has an unnecessarily high skill cap that just isn't worth it in the end compared to better picks like Orianna or Casseopia who outclass her. Otherwise Malzahar, LeBlanc, or Veigar will be much more worth it in the long run judging by your requirements.
