We gathered the top 5 easiest Ryze matchups for you to win the lane and dominate the game!
Ryze is a champion that has gone through countless reworks and changes, meaning he has always been one of the hardest champions to master. A good Ryze can stomp most lanes and carry well into the late game.
These are the easiest five matchups you Ryze mains will have in the Mid lane, so you should be stomping them!
Top 5 easiest Ryze matchups: Sylas
Sylas has been one of the most overpowered champions since his release, especially due to how much his kit has in it.
He has a heal and a gap close with his W, Kingslayer, and two more gap-closing abilities in his E, Abscond and Abduct. Ryze is great at limiting Sylas’ movement.
He can do this by using his E, Spell Flux then his W, Rune Prison to get the Flux Bonus and Root Sylas when he tries to engage.
Make sure you use this before he casts his second E, Abduct on you, as he will travel to you even if he is rooted!
You also gain movement speed from a lot of your kit, especially if you take Phase Rush as your keystone rune, meaning you can kit around the Kingslayer and avoid his engage.
Ryze also does not have a combat ultimate in Realm Warp, so Sylas will struggle to utilize this against you to win 1v1s or 2v2s!
Similarly to Sylas, Ekko is very reliant on diving onto his enemy, which Ryze can shut down effectively in a similar way to how he shuts down Sylas – with his E, Spell Flux and W, Rune Prison combination.
Whenever Ekko uses his E, Phase Dive to get onto Ryze, you can use this combo to stop him from following up and triggering his passive, Z-Drive Resonance!

Ryze can also use Phase Rush and the speed boost he gets from consuming two rune stacks to get out of Ekko’s W, Parallel Convergence, so he can avoid getting stunned!
Ekko is fundamentally an assassin, but Ryze’s core build is very defensive, with Rod of Ages, which provides 600 Health when fully stacked after 10 minutes. Ekkos is definitely one of the easiest Ryze matchups for you to dominate the game.
Zhonya’s Hourglass puts Ryze in a golden form for 2.5 seconds so he is invulnerable for that period. This is very good against all assassins, and Ekko is no exception!
Ryze is a great pick into Vladimir, as Vladimir is all about short poke trades and then healing up with his Q, Transfusion. It is one of the easiest Ryze matchups you can play.
Vladimir’s quick spell rotation and short ability cooldown are what make this so effective.
He struggles against Ryze because of how short Ryze’s cooldowns are, meaning he can match the poke!
Vladimir’s Q, Transfusion, has a cooldown of 4.6 seconds at level five, which Vladimir unlocks at level nine!
Ryze can match this with his Q, Overload being reset whenever he uses E, Spell Flux, and W, Rune Prison.
The mid laner can also chase Vladimir in his W, Sanguine Pool, with his speed boosts in his kit!
Ryze can use his combos on the wave to force the wave into Vladimir early on in lane.
When Vladimir’s E, Tides of Blood, cannot clear effectively, which means Vladimir has to choose between farming minions and poking Ryze with his Q, Transfusion.
Vladimir’s lack of hard crowd control also makes it very difficult to assist his jungler if they gank, especially as Ryze can just use his ultimate ability, Realm Warp to get to safety!
Jayce is the fourth champion on this list of the easiest Ryze matchups, and he is on here because you can encounter him in both the Mid lane and the Top lane.
It likes to poke enemies down with his Q, Shock Blast, and E, Acceleration Gate combo, but Ryze can easily farm behind minions, without having to sacrifice any gold.
Jayce would then want to jump on Ryze with his Melee form, using his Q, To The Skies! and E, Thundering Blow, but Ryze, similarly to Ekko and Sylas, can use his E, Spell Flux and W, Rune Prison combo to kite around the Arcane star!
The champion can also push waves a lot harder in lane than Jayce can, meaning, like the issue Vladimir has against Ryze, he struggles to help lock down Ryze when he gets help from his jungle, and he has to choose between clearing waves and poking Ryze!
Our final champion on this list that Ryze has a great time against is Talon. Talon is fundamentally an assassin and will want to jump on Ryze level two, when most mages are weak, but not Ryze.
Ryze starts with his W, Rune Prison level one, and then takes E, Spell Flux level two, meaning that if Talon jumps on him, he can use this and an auto attack to trigger Phase Rush and run away from the Noxian assassin!

Talon is also very good at roaming with his E, Assassin’s Path, but considering Ryze has a roaming ultimate in Realm Warp, he can easily follow Talon’s roaming to the Bot or Top lane!
