“Easy matchup pre-6.
When 6 hold your E for his ultimate. Just E on yourself vertically making sure you hit it at the right timing.”

“Used to perma ban this champ because of how much I would see him and how annoying he would be. This matchup may be closer to a 4 in actuality but it feels like a 5. Start longsword and E. You beat him 1v1 1 and 2 so look to e, hook or just walk up and q + autos whenever you can. Once he hits 3 position so you cant get hit by his W+2q's. Never E on him unless his W is down. You can walk up and q auto to trade with him but he has a lot of DPS so watch out. When hits 6 and uses R, walk towards your tower and e a second before he comes out. This will hopefully stun him under tower and if not he will be forced to R back and lose all the damage he would do. Ganks can be hard to pull off unless you have something like a rammus or hecarim. Steelcaps arn't bad if they have a lot of AD.”
“MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA)
Doran Ring + 2 Pots + Another Ring on first Recall + 1-2 Cloth Armor if you still cannot deal with him (A.K.A. he's experienced). Cloth Armors shall transition to Zhonya/Tabis later on if you still need it. Get Time Warp Tonic/Stopwatch to survive OR Stopwatch/Minion Demat to push and roam first.
ROAM/PUSH FIRST BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FOLLOW HIM UNLESS YOUR JUNGLER IS NEARBY. GET STOPWATCH RUNE.
In the Zed matchup we want to get Exhaust or Heal/Barrier as a summoner spell and to reach for Zhonya for first or second item. If you think you can survive the matchup you can go for a mana item early on, but I recommend Zhonya as soon as possible. His lanephase before level 6 is relatively close to yours, as in poke, go back and wait for cooldowns and poke again. You should keep a safe distance from his W and try to trade with him and dodge as many Q's as possible. Post 6 you can either play it safe, push and roam, or try to fight him but I do not recommend the second one. If you do get caught try always to flash to towers in the moment his ultimate lands, right before he uses Q to get amplified damage. Use Exhaust in the moment in which his ults lands on you, and zhonya right before he uses Q.
You can notice his Q by his animation, try to get a grasp of that and how it works. Keep Exhaust always in teamfights for him to deny some damage. If you often struggle ask your team to ban him.”
“Barrier or Exhaust is good here. You can win the matchup early if you can dodge his shurikens. At level 6 we want to play passive and wait for jungle help. If jungler isn't helping you, try roam to other lanes and get them ahead. ”
“Rush boots early so you can dodge his W+E+Q combo. If you get his by this, it will take half your hp with Electrocute.
Rush zhonyas in this matchup. ”
“Take barrier. You need to harass him a lot before he gets level 6. Punish him whenever he's going for a last-hit, and focus on dodging his double shurikens. His W shadow has a high cooldown so you have a lot of time to punish him after he used it. Rush seeker's armguard as your first as it will completely counter his lethality route. If you struggle in this match up, you can get zhonya's hourglass after your mythic item to completely deny his all-ins and outscale. ”
“Early seekers and stopwatch will do a lot for you, but if he gets 2 kills early he's likely to win the game by himself.”
“Use fleet foot + resolve tree and start with doran's shield. Lvl 1-5 you poke him as much as possible with Q if he ever walks up to farm. Bait out his W by intentionally walking in range and then out again. Once it's on cooldown, you can look for short engages with your E and stacked Q. It becomes really rough after level 6 because he can easily dodge all of your damage, and sine yone is somewhat immobile, it's also pretty easy for zed to land all his abilities on you. Play it really passive in lane after 6 and DO NOT use your ultimate if his is up. Play to farm and outscale. Call for jungle help and try to make him waste his ultimate. ”
“It's talked nonstop that the zed matchup is a natural counter to Ahri. I don't believe this is the case. So like any other melee ad's play it like he is a talon. Push them into turret, harrass them out of lane but the only difference with zed is hold charm unless you know he hasn't used shadow or its on CD. also if he ults you can charm him out of ult or just ult away. If needed rush an armguard TECH. Or even Ninja Tabis. Double armor too. Don't be afraid to take trades with W / Q and him using all his abilities. Because you can just auto him and he can't auto you.”
