Ok, I'm trying to learn a few ap casters mid so I can counter-pick if I need to. In what situation would ryze be the BEST counter-pick to an enemy ap mid?
Akali is the main one I use him to counter. He is strong, but you have to be careful early game, he's not really a counter pick though.
Ryze counters kennen hard.
Veigar. Literally, they pick veigar, ryze is THE BEST magic damage carry to use against him.
If you play ultra passively until about level 5, and level pool over e, vlad can wear most ryze's down and then ult dive him as usual.
Hawk Jones IV
Anyone who relies on some kind of movement to unleash their combo.
Anivia Mid GG
Maybe leblanc since you will be building banshees anyways?
