In recent days, Korean rank suddenly has many people who bring magicians from “the previous century” to the middle. The reason that champions who are not in this meta is used is because they have skill sets that can counter a lot of champions, most notably Nunu in the hands of the Demon King Faker.
Following are the “obsolete” wizards:
Not in the meta of any region in the world, however, Anivia has recently been a familiar name in Korean rank.
In the laning phase, Anivia can farm a little bit difficult if she can not poke her opponent with her Q + E combo. But instead of farming, Anivia can stop many unexpected roams from the enemy team. The most effective is to stop Nunu’s snowballing skills with his Ice Wall (W). Champions with no terrain skills that lose Speed will also be very afraid of Anivia’s W.
By the next stage, Anivia can clear the soldiers with just a few seconds of dropping her ultimate, the ability to push the top lane in League of Legends. Opponents want to push the pillars when Anivia is still alive is “hard as sky”. In attack, Anivia can block almost 90% of the main path of the enemy team with W, giving her team a good teamfight or can easily keep a large target.

As one of the extremely extremely few generals playing at the moment, Annie has the ability to play very well against nasty champions like Nunu Mid. Because in the early stages, Annie can clear soldiers without too much energy with her Q or W. After clearing the soldiers, Annie could “disappear” and return to the street at a very fast speed or roam in an equally sudden summer with Nunu.
By the middle of the match, this will be the time when Annie is most dangerous because the R + W + Q combo is enough to put the entire enemy team on the board if they stand close to each other. In addition, the fact that the enemy was afraid of Annie and tearing off the squad that did not dare to “gather in large numbers” also helped Annie team to be able to finish an enemy quickly and withdraw when the enemy team at a long distance could not respond promptly.
Late game, Annie meets the factors that many of the hottest mid lane champions want to have such as opening strong fights, extremely large area damage, very high survivability without cover teammates, ultimately damage and stamina of “6th member in the team” – Tibbers.

With just one nice E put, Nunu and many champions in front will have to “turn the car” or get a stun.
In the early stages, Veigar can farm and slowly accumulate Q stacks to increase late game power. Until the first item is the Hextech Pistol, Veigar can start roaming with his allies. Because of the Ice Up upgrade, slowed opponents are often difficult to escape from Space Bending (E), helping Veigar and his allies to deal damage to those trapped or stunned by E.
By the middle of the match, Veigar’s annoyance was “getting to the roof” when there were two items that slowed down constantly to roam with the team. Enemies that are slowed down by Veigar will be captured and killed in one combo. Just like Anivia, Veigar can corner and block the path with E helping the team to keep big goals extremely easily. Veigar’s favorite fighting corners are at the dragon cave and the Baron cave. If you do not want to fight, the two sides just farm, the advantage is also in favor of Veigar thanks to the ability to increase their infinite power, the longer the match, the higher the damage.
