“Start Doran's Blade in this matchup, This matchup is fairly easy for urgot since hitting E should be easy for you with him being meele, plus a lot of sylas players will try to E in on you and then you can just E them and kill him, Executioners calling is recommended in this matchup since he heals a ton with W and they usually run conqueror, I just go for trades whenever my E is up in this matchup and it's smooth sailing, if you miss E then just back off until it's back up. and try your best to dodge his Q's as well. If he steals your ultimate try your best to either dodge it or kill him first, if you guys both ult at the same time, whoever gets the other person low enough first for the pull wins.”
“This matchup is dependant on the main rune Sylas chooses. Aftershock or Electrocute dictates how you should be fighting him. You need to by all means use your minions to body block his (E) dash into his (E) chain CC, especially if he is running Aftershock. If he misses this ability, make sure to run him down. He is squishy as hell if he misses. If he does hit you, however, there is not much you can do, because you let him land the ability and you're going to be taking a shit ton of damage. Throw your (R) on his (R) to track where he places them or buy Oracle Lens to remove the mushrooms he placed.
“TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T EAT TOO MUCH POKE. KEYSTONE DOESN’T MATTER. DSHIELD IS A GOOD START BUT DBLADE WORKS IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT ABOUT BEING ABLE TO DODGE HIS POKE.
Sylas is not a difficult matchup for Darius at all. He might have an easier time in midlane but not up here in top. Sylas is somewhat difficult to land your first Q on due to his shield dash and him being able to pull himself to you. But other than that he is very free to fight against. Just grab a Dshield as it should be enough on its own to negate his poke. And poking you is all he can do as if he ever gets in the range of your W or E, he is just dead. Freeze him off of farm and kill him if he ever steps up. If he ever becomes an issue, get executioner’s calling as it helps a lot against his healing. Unless the Sylas is smurfing vs you, you should be able to beat his face in.”
“Your W cancels his E first cast, but other than that there's little to say regarding this match up other than "Dodge his Q and E".”
“Get Executioner's Calling and punish him for his shitty laning phase. Remember that he only has 1 untargeted dash with which he can evade your W while his W is too short by itself and also puts him into your Q3 range.”
“Since sylas its insane in Mid-late game and can heal like crazy, he an be a big threat even when behind, but things get worse, since he can steal your R and also Get fre HP like us.
Honestly him and Sett are some of the better bans you have.
If you end up agaisnt him either Mid or top, i reccomend going thornmail or morellonomicon and getting magic resistance, your W and R can shutdown sylas easily.”
“Annyoing with those CCs and heals, rush early Executioner's vs Sylas. Remember about his W healing increased by 50% against targets below 40% health so be careful diving him or trying to kill when you got low hp.”
“This match-up will be dependent if you can dodge his skillshots or not. Dodge his Chain Lash(Q), Kingslayer(W), Abscond/Abduct(E), and Hijack(R). All of his skills are linear. Take note that his Kingslayer(W) will heal him if not avoided. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Sylas) (Recommended Items: Morello's, Rylai's Scepter) (Fling overrides his Abscond/Abduct) (Fling overrides Kingslayer) (Mega Adhesive prevent casting on Abscond/Abduct and King Slayer) ”

“You win if you dodge his Q and land your Q pokes. Parry his stun which is predictable as he dashes right before stunning. If he steals your ult, hes trolling. You will hit the vitals faster and you know how they work. Get executioners as your second item to prevent his healing from his W and if he does complete your ult.”
