    So she's 1 mana ezreal, that only has the precondition of needing to be in combat first.

    That would be good enough on its own but she has a 2 mana built in kill spell.

    So you guys know how I said there hasn't been a good control spell released in ages, this is it.

    Flock, disintegrate, scorched earth

    Anie ezreal, anie Katarina, anie zillian. Annie Swain!

    Like that some scary noxious control value right there.

    Annie is essentially fizz for combat instead of spells, you can't block her with a potential disintegrate in hand.

    So that only leaves hard removal, strikes, etc.

    Pretty good card is what I'm saying, who cares that tibbers is only average, because he's free.

    You believe that Annie is gonna played in control? C'mon buddy we both know that she is gonna be abused in burn aggro.

    Annie is strong, in fact very strong on her own. She also comes with the best championspell in the game handsdown.

    She and her support package not only support burn but also stun archetypes so yes Annie is strong in burn but not only there. (Thinking of Annie Yasuo for example)

    Yeah the fact that she slots so well into burn aggro, but also Swain, yes there is some cute stun stuff too, but even just like being better then Catlyn in a ezreal control deck.

    Means yes much like how Zoe was an absolute terror before pokey stick, Anne will require hard tecking. Mystic shot, fleet feather tracker, "gifts for renekton," single combat, avalanche "the spell not the landmark," 

    Like she is what kenin used to be aka hard tech against me or complain till we get a patch. That being said as a burn card she only represents 2 dmg as a 1 drop instead of 3 but she is unblockable, soooo yeah somewhere between amazing to plz God nerf now.

    Yeah I don't see how she's making it out of burn aggro. She's a 2/2 quick attack that can't block. Slower decks don't really want that. Tibbers is also not strong enough on his own since he's only generated once and that's if Annie survives 2-3 rounds.

    Her champ spell is pretty strong though. Cheap and situational but that's exactly what you want from a champ spell. Card itself is probably not that maindeckable but idk.

    Take my words with a grain of salt. I'm unranked and only play casuals lmao.
