Choosing Lane

Try to lane with a stun/slow/disable.

Early game's Strategy

Do some decent harassing and play aggressive. But Concentrate on last-hits as you are item dependant. If your ally calls for a gank, help him out. Maintain your mana at least for one shukuichi to escape.

Mid Game Strategy

Why radiance purchased in mid game and not in the late game? If you're playing well, it will be easy for you to buy radiance before 20 minutes had passed. but if you can't buy yasha first, then upgrade it into manta style.
Late Game and War Strategy

You should have gotten at least 2 or 3 of the luxury items in your Mid-Late Item Build. Whenever war is occured, you must targeting the weakest hero. You'll hard to die, Thanks for your ultimate skill. Don't be initiator even you have an amazing ulti, believe me, you enemy will targeting you first.
