General info
This comp uses the mighty 10-cost Tempest Dragon - Ao Shin - as main carry! Play him with Mages in the back and the Bruiser duo Sylas and Ornn in the front to stall enough time to let lightning rain down!

Playing around a high-cost Dragon wants you to play the strongest board from the get go! A good starter for this comp is by running the low cost mage trio and Tristana to activate Nomsy with Trainer.

At this point you are able to get to 5 Mages while still having Nomsy frontline. We swap Tristana out for Lulu providing a bit more support here too. Sylas is a great frontline tank to hold your items and Ryze can hold all your damage items.

Additional comp tips
If you drop a Mage Spatula, extend this comp further into a 5 mages comp by taking out Bard and playing any mage, with Nami being your best choice. Making Ao Shin a Mage will melt down enemy teams double as fast! Play Ryze or Sona as mid game carry until you find a copy of Ao Shin. If you find a copy of Aurelion Sol - just play the Astral Dragon instead.
