R>Q>W>E - Standart build.You want to farm lane and w8 moment when u can teleport at bot lane and help your ADC secure double kill / make dragon. Best protection build for midgame


R>E>Q>W agressive mana hungry build aganist range champions,who doesnt rush HP items.Enemy team doesnt include 2 or more hard CC tanks/bruisers.You know that you can easly burst enemy carry

Champions Maokai synergizes Back to Top

Maokai is tanky champion with good sustain,hight CC,nice utility and medium AP dmg.U should realize this pros.
MAokai top isnt so popular now.And enemy will try to counter another champion.This is big + for u. 

                                      Great synergizes                  



5_64.png -Amasing dmg with nice CC.
102_64.png - all u need - hight mix damage per second.All that shyvana need - a lot of CC and slow
266_64.png - Just monster. U synergizes with him in any combo.Aatrox can go jungle and u top if he get counter.Or Aatrox top and u jungle.doesnt matter.
254_64.png - Hight AA dmg(from passive and base AD) + CC that easy to use with u.
In teamfights: Аmasing gap-close aganist carry with hights mobility like 133_64.png104_64.png18_64.png81_64.png42_64.png67_64.png51_64.png or 55_64.png103_64.png85_64.png , even with 4.png
Good synergyzes 
59_64.png  - same with Xin.NIce dmg,good CC.But J4 havent so hight dmg like Xin.And have utility for AD champions( %reduce armor,attack speed buff)  In general this is good combo.U eat enemy ap/ad carry in all fights.
56_64.png - can be rly good.enemy cant escape from his fear couse of u roots and slow.
64_64.png - nice CC and good AD dmg.With good Lee - easy kill enemy ad/ap carry in teamfights.U initate and rooting ap or adc,Lee use W on u,then slow and ult carry to ur teammates.
 35_64.png  - i just dont like shaco.but this champion can be rly strong.Amasing dmg with good CC,that easy to place with u.
19_64.png - like shyv.WW can make a lot of mix dmg,u can realize it with CC.Good Baron/Dragon control.
31_64.png - With mao Cho can place Q very easy.that gives hard slow,then Cho can autoattack a lot.Dont foget about MAokai slow and roots. + silence.Just OMNOMNOMNOMNOM

Viable junglers

Its all junglers who can make some dmg 2_64.png10_64.png11_64.png14_64.png23_64.png24_64.png28_64.png41_64.png60_64.png62_64.png77_64.png107_64.png120_64.png121_64.png122_64.png114_64.png but i think its bad idea.Hard to realize ganks with them early.

                                Bad synergyzes
Mao synergyzes bad with all tanky/utility junglers like 113_64.png12_64.png20_64.png32_64.png33_64.png36_64.png48_64.png54_64.png75_64.png98_64.png106_64.png111_64.png154_64.png - Maokai is alrdy tanky/utility cmapion.U cant realize ganks.Team  need damage.
This junglers cant help u at top line.But in general this champions can be rly good.If team have 96_64.png - all need to protect this little megaCarry.So 3 utility champions can be good in this situation.
