“Although kind of hard to hit E's in this matchup I find ryze to be pretty easy because of how weak he is early game he shouldn't really ever kill you, and if you do ever land E he is 100% dead but you may have to flash E to land them in this matchup, try to land your Q first and you can sometimes get in ranged to E him, other then that ryze loves to perma push the wave so try not to let him do that for free on you try to pressure him and push the wave back as much as possible, they will usually use their combo to push which means some of their combo will be down if you trade with them. Adaptive helm second or third item can be good in this matchup especially if it's good for the overall game, although ryze scales good, you still scale really good also.”
“Recommended: Sustain Runes & Teleport
Tips: Passive shield his poke (not much to say here). You can E in if he wastes W. Your E stops his R.”
“Ryze will mostly always run Phase Rush into you. You do NOT win this lane in any logical way. He will have full control over the waves so long as he knows how to utilize his combos correctly. So just keep yourself back, preferably in bushes or to the side of your minions that are not being comboed unless he is not playing well or lining up the correct AoE spread combo. I suggest to take resolve as your secondary runes with Bone Plating and Overgrowth, and max rank your (Q) for poking only. It's often a better option to dodge this match-up entirely instead of having to go into the hard-counter, but this is personal preference. It's a farming and survival lane mostly.”
“Don't trade in early game with him.
Destroy him after level 6.”
“What could be more fair than a mage that only builds mana in order to one shot so he can stay in lane for longer without sacrificing any damage? Pretty much how this guy works. You're both burst fighters so he has the advantage being ranged and can't miss his CC. Take a sustain start so you can better share the wave early on and gain fury for fights. Use bushes to buy some time since he can't just walk in with you.”
“He is annoying to play into. His early game will let you just poke you out. Don't stand next to your own minions. This is going to let him get free poke onto you with his E->Q. He has lower damage earlier on but he is fast and has the range to avoid your abilities with ease. If you land a pull, you can combo him but it won't do too much as he will just root you and run away with Phase Rush. Protobelt is good here along with Mercury treads. This is a boring lane where you both farm and scale. But Ryze scales MUCH harder than you. Trust me. Late game, he WILL beat you, even in death realm. You have got to beat him once you have your ultimate, as he won't be able to escape as easily. If you use your ultimate and land your abilities, you might be able to beat him. Ignite is good into this lane if you are confident in your skill of landing abilities as it lets you sneak a few kills and snowball.”
“Don't be scared to trade vs ryze. Similiar to the vladimir style, push all game and deny him cs under his tower.”
“TL;DR - BAD MATCHUP. PLAY BACK AND DON’T TAKE FREE POKE. DON’T STAND NEXT TO FRIENDLY MINIONS. FIGHT AROUND HIS E(ENGAGE IF HE USES IT ON THE WAVE). LET HIM PUSH AND THEN RUN HIM DOWN. EARLY MERC BOOTS RUSH IS A MUST. WAIT FOR STRIDEBREAKER.
A good Ryze is a nightmare to deal with. You essentially want him to push into you, which he does naturally, and then chase him down to his turret. He gets move speed and Phase Rush movement speed so you need as much distance as possible. Post-6 he can use his ultimate to escape and the only thing you can do to stop his Ult is your E but you need your E to start the fight anyway so good luck. An early Merc boots rush is a must, as you need to cut his root short so that you can catch him before he can escape. Don’t stand near minions as his E can spread from them, onto you, leading to him being able to get a nice chunk of damage off on you with his Q. Try to play passively during the lane so as to not take too much damage. If he is good, you probably won't kill him earlier but Stridebreaker helps in any case. If the Ryze is good, this is possibly one of the most difficult lanes in the game in my opinion.”
“Level 2 you win, get Dorans blade and try to abuse him early game. He is hard to lock down if he grabs phase rush. He will scale hard so just try to abuse him and dont let him get free poke on you in lane.”
“This matchup sucks. You can't trade with him pre 6 because if you try to get on top of him, then his passive shield will negate damage. Once you hit 6, if he misses his snare, then you possibly have a chance to out trade him. Expect a rough lane and being kited out all game. Good luck. ”
