“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. PHASE RUSH IS A MUST. EARLY MERC BOOTS RUSH IS A MUST.
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. Phase Rush is a must in this lane if you are ever going to be able to kill him. If the Ryze is good, this is possibly one of the most difficult lanes in the game in my opinion.”
“Ryze will mostly always run Phase Rush into you. You do NOT win this lane in any logical way. However, lately he tends to try to manage his mana much more. 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. You shouldn't be demoralized in this match-up. It's boring and strictly a survival lane against a good Ryze. It's often a better option to dodge this match-up entirely.”
“He'll be controlling the lane due to his E and range advantage pre-6, but once you reach level 6 you'll have a much easier time dealing with him. However, be aware that his abilities will still outrange you at this point and up until level 16, making it very hard to all in him as he can kite you with Phase Rush/his slow/his speed boost. Make sure to not stand next to minions and to ping his roams as best as you can. Late game, he'll kite you due to the range gap, so it is very hard to fight him unless you catch him off guard.”
“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.”
“Most of Ryze's damage comes from his Q combined with his other spells. So if he uses Q to farm, go for a fight and make sure you have your windwall to block 90% of his damage.”
“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.”
“Oof ouch please don't hit me with another ability owie. Ryze hits hard and continuously, his W denies you from getting onto him (Most of the time) and even then he itemises relatively tanky and proves hard to kill. Expect a LOT of harassment from this lane. ”
“Ryze outpushes you early with good damage so just let him push you in.
If you build Spectre's cowl on top of your Dorans Shield + Second wind You can mostly ignore his poke.”
“Don't be scared to trade vs ryze. Similiar to the vladimir style, push all game and deny him cs under his tower.”
“It can be difficult if you take a bad early trade. They usually take E first so try and farm within your wave. Look to poke with Q and once the wave is shoving you can run him down at level 3 once he uses W. He must use a lot of mana early to shove u in so try and capitalize on this and track his mana costs. Rush Mercs into this matchup. If the game goes too late he will just burst and poke you down with ease.”
