Playing against Zilean

Key Insights
If you're tagged by
Q
, you can force him to push the lane by intentionally going near your own minions with it blows up.
If 2
Q
bombs attach to each other, they will detonate immediately. He can put it on allies to deliver the first bomb!
E
is a very potent slow. Try to stay out of its range else it's an easy 2x Q combo.
R
's effect lasts for 5 secs. If possible, wait for it to wear off before killing the target.
He has no sustain, so very vulnerable to being poked and shoved out.
Power Spike
At lvl 2, he unlocks the option to double bomb.
At lvl 6, his
R
revive is extremely strong in 2v2 skirmishes, both for bot and mid lane.
By lvl 13, his
W
and
Q
will be on much lower CDs, allowing him to 2x Q more often.
Vulnerable
Limited wave clear early as a mid laner, so push him in to deny him gold.
Fairly easy all-in pre-6.
