Quick tips to play Maokai

Use your Saplings Sapling TossE to scout for vision in nearby lane bushes. They will help protect you when your trinket is on cooldown.
Maokai’s Ultimate Nature's GraspR is great in team fights. Once you engage with your Ultimate Nature's GraspR, fall back and peel your carries.
You’re not at your strongest in the early game. When playing against a strong early game champion, avoid fighting them until you’ve got some items under your belt.
