“Vlad is pretty safe but this lane should be in your favor, I like to get an early executioners calling in this matchup and play really agressive early because vlad sucks early game, a lot of vlads will try to use their empowered Q on you and walk up for that, so that's when you want to go for E's on him, you can tell when he gets empowered Q by the bar below his health bar when it turns yellow that means it's close and then it will turn red is when he has his empowered Q so it's fairly easy to predict. You want to try to get him to use his pool before you use your ultimate in this matchup since it's extremely easy to pool, you can usually bait out his pool with your E and if he doesn't pool your E then he will have to pool shortly after because he will take a ton of damage. Basically punish this matchup early, vlad scales really well into teamfights and will most likely do more then you so splitpushing is also a great option here.”
“We sometimes take Doran's Shield into this match-up to match his sustain with grasp of the undying. However, this is based on personal preference. You should be working your way into a more damage oriented build around mid game. The simple way to deal with Vladimir is to watch his energy bar. If he is glowing red, back off and let him use it on a minion, as you don't wanna take the increased damage from his empowered (Q). Once he has used it, you can go in and try to poke him out with your (Q) or possibly your (E) auto attack, it may seem boring, and you may miss CS, but you'll go even or win because of it.
“Sustain is good in this lane, get some mr and vamp scepter and just farm up and you can kill him later on. You have to bait his pool though or he will just dodge your stun with it. While laning try to avoid getting hit by his strong Q poke since it deals quite hefty amount of damage. Stay behind minions so his E can't hit you.”
“Buy Executioner's Call and rush MR against him. Its farm lane.”
“TL;DR - BORING MATCHUP WHERE NOBODY WINS. DON’T TAKE FREE POKE. IF YOU ARE GONNA TRADE, MAKE SURE TO DUMPSTER HIM IN IT. PHASE RUSH IS RECOMMENDED BUT CONQUEROR IS OKAY. GHOST IS GREAT.
Vladimir isn’t a difficult matchup similar to a strong lane bully per se. It is just that it is very difficult to generate a lead against a competent Vladimir. He has a frightening lategame and the sustain in lane to get there. You have to get early sustain with Dshield and etc in order to match his healing. Try not to take stupid trades. He is free food when he does not have pool but don’t overextend and take free damage after he uses it to get away. The health cost of pool is high enough to be punishing enough on its own. Just make sure you stomp him in trades, as his sustain is quite annoying. Executioner’s is a must buy into this lane, so if he ever gets in a bad enough position where you can punish him, he is most likely dead. I’d actually go for Swifties in this lane if I'm running Conqueror as he mostly relies on slows from his E and Pool to kite you. But this is only a consideration if you are a good player AND if noone else on the enemy team requires a specific type of boots to counter them. Vladimir does not have enough damage to beat you in an all in. Even with his ultimate. Conqueror is not bad but Phase Rush is a good choice as it lets you stick to him through his annoying pool slow. If all else fails, just try to make sure you keep up in cs and dont feed him. He can 1v9 once he gets his items. As with most Ranged matchups, Stridebreaker is great.”
“Vlad is tricky because he will W when you go in for an E and will steal your health after every trade. Really tricky to play against unless you get jungler help.”
“Vladimir will not do much during the laning phase. But its difficult to kill the vladimir. Push all game during the laning phase, take plate golds, deny him CS while hes under his tower, and Ward to avoid ganks. ”
“You match his sustain, you deal way more damage than him from early to mid and he has to use dodge your W with his pool or proc Phase rush or else he gets dragged into an undodgeable Q3. Just don't eat empowered Qs and you are fine.”
“Free. One hundred percent the easiest matchup for kled. He poses no threat to you damage wise. If you Q him before he pools he will still be pulled back by it. You have healing reduction in your kit. Make this guys life a living hell.”
“This is not too bad for Darius as you will almost certainly have a base movement speed advantage. Rush phage and try and get on him as much as possible. you can land your E whenever he goes to auto the wave, just make sure he uses Phase rush and his W before hard engaging on him.”
