Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
I've watched at the new Anivia patch (I'm anivia Main by the way) and i have to say, that she has much lower damage output including her E, but she has much more pressure in teamfights now, that makes her to a better Lategame Champ than before. she still has the same early game phase like before, but after 6 she gets a bit weaker than before, except you'll get your opponent in your ult for 1.5 sec.
Maybe you should better Waveclear with the ult instead of poking in near future, but if you land your Q, you can Poke pretty well, but it shouldn't be that useful at laning Phase in current Meta, because of the Assassins.
any other opinions? :)
