Quick tips to play Sylas

Sylas has very good sustain in the laning phase. Don't hesitate to trade with the enemy when you can. You out trade most of the enemies due to your SylasW heal and SylasE shield.
Sylas' SylasR can be very powerful into a lot of matchups. Stealing a strong SylasR can decide the fate of a teamfight, so think twice when using your Ult.
Sylas' SylasE gives you 2 Passive Stacks (1 for the dash and 1 for the CC) and every other ability gives you 1 Stack. Using your AA after every spell cast is key on Sylas.
