Guide to Countering Sivir as Zyra

Tips for Playing as Zyra against Sivir

Seeds grant vision to your team.

Placing a seed in your spell's path after you have cast it gives you the best chance of having a seed in the proper spot.

Zyra is a great ambusher - look for opportunities to set a trap of seeds in brush, then lure enemies in.

Advice to Win Against Sivir

Sivir is a powerful pushing champion, so leaving her unattended in a lane for too long will often result in your turrets being destroyed.

When laning against Sivir, it is possible to throw off the timing of her Spell Shield by faking an advance, then backing off.

Boomerang Blade costs a lot of mana to cast, so dodging it sets Sivir back. If it hits you on the way out, avoid its path on the way back.
