How to counter Syndra?

#1Phase 8Posted 4/18/2013 5:59:14 PM
I'm usually not a bad mid at all, but lately whenever I go up against a Syndra, I don't seem to do well at all. I know to avoid her balls, but even when I try, if I get hit by one thing, I get bursted down fast.

Are there any good tips to fighting Syndra? Champs that do well against her in lane? Champs that do poorly against her?

Don't duel her at level 6, you will lose.

I'd imagine a bruiser mid would do pretty well, you could play somebody who out-ranges her, or a tanky mage like Galio.

Galio dumps on her free.

Galio, probably. Kassadin once he has some MR going.

Also anyone who has some cc and can wave clear as fast as she can and back the **** off. Lux and Zyra come to mind. Not really counters, but you can go toe to toe with her.

I was actually using her the last match I had against Syndra, but I just didn't feel like the matchup was good.

Of those, I only own Ahri. Other mids I do own are Brand, Cassiopeia, Lux(Karma, Lulu, and Yi for the slightly less traditional mids).
