ChadKarthus says “Comet Poke Varus is very annoying to play against, however you can definitely kill him in lane, if you are good you can bait out his ult too If he goes AP you are hardcountered”

moso says “You just cannot match his DPS and superior poke with his E. You pretty much don't want to be forced to fight him head on, but the lane is not unplayable.”

slendoooo says “Varus wins long trades, and can follow up with 1 of his abilities after short trades, always look to dodge his Q or E after you trade 1-2 autos with him. The real problem with Varus is after he is level 6, his ultimate is not a stun, it's a root, so you will be able to auto attack him and use abilities, the problem is that Draven has 550 range and varus 575, so even if you try to auto him once he will ult you, you will never be able to because of the range. After 6 look for fake engages so he waste his R ability and repeat doing short trades till he's dead. A video example of Varus-Draven Matchup: (To be made)”
Doody_tco says “Block his abilities especially his ultimate and engage him aggressively and easy win in all stages of game”

Pipimatz says “Ap Varus is hard since he just has to press r and q. Ad Varus tough is an easy matchup.”

Corpselover says “You can block his Q, E, and R. You can kill him at level 2 or 3, if he ults you then block his Q and if you see his ult coming just block that.”

Banana Pirate says “Not hard at all. Super squishy. Rush him with your sup and you should almost win every time (the only time you lose against this champ is when you have a horrible sup and he has an good sup). Definitely buy Galeforce. ”
LionelOCE says “Varus can be frustrating post 6 because he has a lot of kill threat with his ult. However, you do outrange him (600 to 575 not including lethal tempo) and can run him down in the long lane.”
Eowide says “Varus is annoying since you have to run cleanse into him. But you can easily all in him when he is out of position.”

kaiba77 says “Actually kind of tough matchup, if they go AP. When you dash onto him, make sure you dodge R or you lose. Take sustain runes and items.”

Caganos says “If AP: High Poke, built in healing reduction, good CC and a lot of damage. Try to kill him before he kills you. If AD: He is useless.”

Edwwardo says “If you're laning against a lethality varus, you're going to have a bad time. Try to always have E up when farming in his Q range.”
ddieguito_es says “If you get hit by R and you have no MR, you're most likely dead. He shouldn't a problem in lane if you don't let him proc his W stacks. Your CC is easy to hit against him, but late game it might be a nightmare. Remember to get MR if you're struggling.”

AnxialSociety says “Spellbook. Will auto you down then poke you out. Watch for his ult and arrows. Grab cleanse for 6. Your goal is to scale and delete long-range. Consider crown”

WayOfTheWlnd says “Same thing goes for the Varus Mid players that you will somehow come across. I would dodge this simply because you're going to be sitting under tower and he will bully you until oblivion, Not only can he burst you down, he can also CC you.”

Samikin says “Skill Matchup. AP Varus can be hard to play against especially if they go Hail of Blades. After level 6, Varus can 100-0 you (or at least very close to that) with his full combo. Should try to play the long-range game in this matchup. Recommendation: Electrocute (+ Manaflow / Scorch) Standard Luden's One-Shot Build”
MiniLuxi1 says “Keep your distance and play carefully. He can easily make stacks (passive W) on you, and kill with his charged (active W) Q. His R immobilizes and can immobilize others if he was in the range of the "tentacles".”

TwitchTv Kibbylol says “You're either fighting a varus otp or a first timer, and if its the former - dodge. Even if he doesn't go AP and goes lethal tempo his QW still oneshots you and if he goes hail of blades AP build you are literally fucked. There is no way to win the lane unless you get good ganks. This may be the worst matchup in the entire game if he goes AP and is good but in my thousands of games on Vlad I've only fought it twice and it is only theoretically worse than anivia. Good luck. Though if your jungle ganks for you when you start dealing damage it is probably freelo as he'll be perma pushing. Oh yeah and if he takes exhaust or barrier you are completely fucked”
