Sylas has auto-attack resets on every ability, so be sure to weave in auto-attacks between abilities to maximize your damage!
Try to think of which ultimate ability is best to steal for your team composition. Do you need to Engage? Output Max Damage? Teleport across to your botlane? Hijack accordingly!

, so be sure to heal as much as you can when running low!
Vulnerable
Sylas is Melee and fairly squishy in lane; if you have a range advantage make sure to punish him when you can.
Sylas has no real built-in escape, so if he is out of position, be sure to collapse with a team for a good pick.
After stealing your ultimate, Sylas cannot steal it for a very long time afterward. Be sure to use that as a window of opportunity, especially when in a 1v1.
