So are they changing Ryze soon or something? I don't ever see Ryze's in games against good people. My assumption is that he doesn't have the tools to keep up with the other casters in the game in utility/survivability or possibly even raw damage.
I see lots of Morgana, Fiddle, and Veigars that are played well. Not so many Ryze.
I would change his ult to do less damage and make it a regular ability.
Give him an Ult that doesn't depend on blind luck.
Make his toggle for his passive increase the amount of mana that his spells cost, but increase their damage in addition to their current effects.
Give him a more defined innate passive so that people can do calculations effectively on the spot during combat.
Does anyone else feel the same way?
