Synergizes well with
Luden's Tempest
,
Archangel's Staff
,
Horizon Focus
,
Shadowflame
,
Zhonya's Hourglass
, and
Rabadon's Deathcap
. Can opt for
Crown of the Shattered Queen
or
Liandry's Anguish
when needed.

Needs to constantly land his skillshots or he'll have significantly lower damage output.
